Patriots vs Jets: New England Dominates Entire Game, Wins Big Divisional Matchup
It was an all too familiar sight for Jets' fans this Sunday night. There was a regular season game with a lot of hype and a lot on the line, and the Jets failed to deliver.
Whether on offense, defense, or special teams, the Jets just simply did not have it tonight. From Joe McKnight’s fumbles to Mark Sanchez’s interceptions, tonight’s game looked like the Jets were a JV high school team and the Patriots were, well, the Patriots.
There is a lot that both teams can take away from this game. The Jets learned that they are not just going to coast to an AFC East crown. The Patriots came in losers of two games in a row, and they still put a beat down on gang green.
The Jets also need to finish in the red zone. They had a lot of opportunities to score early and just could not take advantage. When that happens against a team like the Patriots, you are setting yourself up for a long night.
For the Pats, they showed that they can still play with and dominate any team in the league. Tom Brady showed why he is still one of the top two quarterbacks in the league and why Rob Gronkowski is a premier tight end.
The Patriots also showed a lot of growth on defense. They lost two corners in the game, but were still able to hold the Jets’ offense in check and only allow 16 points. With how porous the Patriot’s defense had been so far this year, they came out and put pressure on Mark Sanchez, and eventually just took the game over.
The Jets will look to rebound against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos on Thursday night. Hopefully they can learn from this game and change some of the problems in tonight’s game. Even though they are working with a very short week, they will look to get back in the playoff hunt as soon as possible.
The Patriots will head back to New England and face the Chiefs on Sunday. The Chiefs are coming off a loss to Denver, and will be up for a challenge trying to win in Gillette Stadium.
