Patriots Win Ugly In New York

Official Patriots Reporter

Patriots 24 -17 Jets

The Patriots went into the Meadowlands Sunday with a record identical to their opponents’, something no one could have predicted at the start of the season. The media had been talking about an 0-16 season for the Jets, but coach Todd Bowles, quarterback Josh McCown and the rest of the team have proved the media wrong.  Whoever came out on top in this game would lead the AFC East, but this didn’t look like 2 good teams fighting it out for the division.

Let’s get the bad out of the way first – the defense, especially in passing, looked awful. I would have never predicted that the Super Bowl Champions would return and deliver the 32nd ranked defense in the National Football League, but here we are. They have given up an average, an AVERAGE of 440 yards of offense per game.  Most of that, of course, through the air.

The Week 5 match-up versus the New York Jets started off on a high note; the Browns won their first coin toss of the season! I know you think this is not really something worth noting, yet as the losers of the toss for the first four weeks, opponents have deferred. This forced a shaky young offense to take the field first, ending in 3-and-outs or blocked punts and eventually the depressing fact that they were the only team in the entire NFL to have never had a lead at any point in a game. Never.

Miami Dolphins Fall to New York Jets

Jets-20  Dolphins- 6

I gave it 24 hrs and rewatched the Dolphins – Jets game.  Twice.  Just to be able to come up with some-thing positive to write about.

As far as the game is concerned, I’ll just quote what Adam Gase said in his  post game presser:   “Jets kicked the s@@t out of us.” End quote.
