New England Patriots
If anything, Thursday night in New England showed how poor this team is — they couldn’t take a game that was practically given to them.
The Jets suffered their sixth straight loss, the longest streak in Rex Ryan’s six seasons as coach, after taking a 19-17 lead with just under 9 minutes left in the third quarter.
Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and the New England Patriots held off the New York Jets 27-25 when Nick Folk’s 58-yard field goal attempt was blocked on the last play Thursday night.
This is the last thing New York Jets fans need to hear. But here it is: Tom Brady could have been drafted by the green and white, if only one scout had his way.
The New York Jets are headed in a completely different direction than the New England Patriots in the AFC East, and that needs to change on Thursday night. In a must-win game, the Jets are a little beat-up, but the injury report consists of a lot of names that will play through the pain.
If seeing Darrelle Revis in a Patriots uniform makes Rex Ryan sick to his stomach, imagine how the Jets coach will feel if his former star player scores a touchdown on Thursday night.
Al entered the Allstate Studio on Thursday and rocked the house with his revamped classic. Let’s hope Sexy Rexy and his Gang Green were listening.
The New England Patriots are going in one direction and the New York Jets are going in another. On “Thursday Night Football,” the teams are going to face off in an AFC East battle that may not be nearly as competitive as it has been in past years. Former NFL quarterback Trent Green took some time to speak with me regarding both teams, injuries, and their direction for the season.
The Patriots turned their season around in plenty of time. It’s probably too late for the Jets, especially if they drop their sixth straight game on Thursday night.
hese divisional rivals are going in opposite directions. After a season-opening victory, the Jets have lost five in a row. While they had a chance against Green Bay and Chicago in Weeks 2 and 3, they’ve gone backwards from there.
Rex Ryan said seeing Darrelle Revis in a Patriots uniform makes him “a little sick to my stomach.”
Ryan tried his best to sound positive, but he appeared weary and acknowledged he got very little sleep after the Jets’ 31-17 loss to the Broncos on Sunday.
Jason discusses Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and the Patriots not being done yet.
The coach is blaming himself, the QB situation is a mess and the defense suddenly can’t stop anyone. The Jets are 1-4, on a four-game skid and facing a season on the verge of spiraling out of control.
The masses and pundits are lunging over each other to put the postmortems on the Brady/Belichick dynasty, with the death blow delivered by the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night.
