New England's secondary ran into trouble against the Jets.
Usually, it's the Jets' running game that poses the greatest threat to opposing defenses. But it was the Jets' passing game that made the headlining plays on Sunday.
Quarterback Mark Sanchez completed 28-of-41 passes for 328 yards and a touchdown. Down the field, Jets wide receivers Jeremy Kerley and Stephen Hill found success retreating to the ball.
New England's cornerbacks, Kyle Arrington, Ras-I Dowling and Alfonzo Dennard, couldn't turn around in time, and plenty of catches over 20 yards were the byproduct.
When there weren't completions, there were penalties. The officials flagged the Pats for illegal contact and holding on multiple occasions, which kept drives alive for New York.
It may have been a new week, but the same old struggles were on display in the Patriots secondary.
