So much for an undefeated season.
The New England Patriots coughed up another halftime lead to the New York Jets, allowing Mark Sanchez to drop bombs (294 yards, three touchdowns) while Tom Brady laid an egg (two interceptions, lost fumble in second half).
Luckily, the Patriots host their perennial doormat, the Buffalo Bills in Week 3. But let's not count our eggs before they hatch—especially if Brady lays another one against the Bills.
The two teams always have fairly close contests, but this one is even more important than usual for the Patriots, who face the prospect of starting 1-2 if they can't put two and two together (by two and two, I of course mean the first two quarters and the last two quarters).
Here's what the Patriots need to do to get back on track with a win in Week 3 over their division rival.
