The Jets have lost five straight games since beating the Raiders in Week 1, the team's longest losing streak since Ryan took over as coach in 2009. The Jets have finished below .500 only once during Ryan's first five seasons with the team.
The Jets are averaging a league-worst 4.7 yards per offensive play and have scored the second-fewest points per game. Geno Smith and Michael Vick have combined to complete 55.5 percent of their passes, the second-worst percentage in the league.
"From the outside it may appear that [we're] out of it," Ryan said. "That's not the case. We've just got to get going and find ways to win."
After reaching consecutive conference championship games in Ryan's first two seasons, the Jets have failed to qualify for the playoffs in each of the last three seasons.
The Jets play the Patriots on Thursday night in Foxboro.
