The San Francisco 49ers are taking “adding insult to injury” to a whole new level after dominating the New York Jets on Sunday.

But teammate Arik Armstead believes that the playing conditions at MetLife Stadium were to blame and coach Kyle Shanahan seemed to agree.

“Fix this trash met life turf,” Armstead wrote in a tweet directed at the NFL. “2020 is so wack.”

Shanahan spoke to reporters following the Niners’ 31-13 win over the Jets and said that he and the team discussed how “sticky” the turf was during that game and noted that “unfortunately” they will have to play there again next week when they take on the New York Giants.
