Patriots 54 Jets 13: ...................

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ You can pick your adjective to describe the Jets’ performance on Sunday. Embarrassing, pathetic, unacceptable, unwatchable, putrid, and horrific all immediately come to mind. They all accurately describe the Jets’ level of play yet they still feel inadequate. The 2021 season for the Jets is being judged on the nebulous criteria of making progress. It can be sometimes be difficult to sort out progress from the win-loss record. We have no such difficulty in today’s 54-13 loss to the Patriots. There was no progress shown. The Jets have excuses...

Final Score: Patriots 54, Jets 13

Final Score: Patriots 54, Jets 13

Photo by Maddie Malhotra/ In the New York Jets’ sixth game of the 2021 season, on a bright and sunny October day in Foxborough, Massachusetts, the Jets were demolished by the New England Patriots, 54 - 13. In the first half it was all Patriots. The Jets offense was nonexistent, as is customary in the first half. Meanwhile the Jets defense failed to show up for the game. The Patriots scored on every possession of the first half to rack up 31 points at halftime. The Jets defense put up only token resistance, allowing big play after big play to a Patriots offense not...

Week 7 Late Games Open Thread

Week 7 Late Games Open Thread

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports Week 7 of the 2021 NFL season continues with a handful of late afternoon games. The late games don’t offer much in the way of intrigue today. Three of the four games feature double digit point spreads, and the only game projected to be close features a bad Philadelphia Eagles team against a Las Vegas Raiders team that just lost its head coach. Perhaps the most interesting story here is the double revenge game of Matthew Stafford and Jared Goff. The game itself is not expected to be close. It pits one of the NFL’s best teams in the Los...

Jets vs Patriots Second Half Thread

Jets vs Patriots Second Half Thread

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ The first half of the New York Jets game against the New England Patriots is in the books, and the Jets trail the Patriots 31 - 7. The Jets opened the game on defense, and were quickly manhandled. The Patriots moved right down the field with little resistance from the Jets. The drive ended in a wide receiver option pass for a touchdown and a quick Patriots 7 - 0 lead. The Jets first possession was the usual disaster. Three and out with a sack on 3rd down and the Jets punted. The Patriots then moved right down the field again for another touchdown...

Chris Pedota/NorthJersey.com/USA Today Network via Imagn Content Services, LLC It’s week 7 of the NFL season and the New York Jets are on the road in Foxborough, Massachusetts to face the New England Patriots. The Jets are coming off their bye and looking to fix the NFL’s lowest scoring offense. First halves have been particularly egregious, as the Jets rarely score and often find themselves in double digit deficits by halftime. The scripted plays to start the game have not worked, the running game has not been effective, dropped passes have been an issue, and Zach...

The Jets and the Bye Week

The Jets and the Bye Week

Photo by Mark Brettingen/NFLPhotoLibrary It’s been a struggle The bye week in the NFL is a chance for a team to reset in the middle of a long season. Players currently have an abbreviated offseason because of OTAs and minicamps. Additionally, an NFL player has to stay in shape at all times. A brief respite during the season is a way for their bodies to heal, even if ever so slightly while a team tries to rethink its season-long plans. Gone are the days when training camp was used to get the players into shape. Now a team usually has a good idea who will make the...

Vincent Carchietta-USA TODAY Sports Good morning, Gang Green Nation! New York Jets football is back after a two week hiatus for the annual bye. The Jets will face the New England Patriots looking for revenge in Foxborough after getting trounced by New England in Week 2. If the Jets are to have a chance in this game the offense will need to get untracked prior to the second half. The Jets offense has been unfathomably awful in the first half this year, constantly putting the team in large deficits to start the second half. The team reportedly worked hard during the bye...

Previewing the Jets’ opposition: New England Patriots

Photo by Maddie Meyer/ It’s difficult to know what to make of the Patriots this year. On one hand, they are 2-4 and have only beaten the Jets and Texans. However, they almost beat Miami, Tampa and the Cowboys and are arguably three plays away from being 5-1. Quarterbacks Everything seems to hinge on rookie Mac Jones, whose game management style is keeping the Patriots competitive as he limits his mistakes. However, he’s not quite been good enough to finish off those stronger teams. In the first game against the Jets, the Patriots adopted a clear approach of playing...

NFL Picks, Week 7

Photo by Ryan Pierse/ According to DraftKings Sportsbook, The New York Jets square off as 7 point underdogs against the New England Patriots in Foxborough, Massachusetts on Sunday. The Jets have not won a game in Foxborough since their thrilling 28 - 21 trouncing of the Patriots in the divisional round of the 2010 playoffs. That seems like eons ago. Since then Tom Brady and friends have routinely dispatched the Jets in Foxborough, usually pretty handily. However, Tom Brady is no longer a Patriot, and the Patriots are no longer AFC East champions, or even a playoff team....

New York Jets Flight Connections 10/23/21

Photo by Al Pereira/ Good morning, Gang Green Nation! The New York Jets will face the New England Patriots coming off the bye week tomorrow. The Jets will probably be without C.J. Mosley on defense. If Mosley can’t go, rookie Jamien Sherwood is expected to take his place. That would not bode well for the Jets defense. With the Patriots still looking for their first home win of the season, the Jets have a chance to do major damage to Bill Belichick’s squad’s playoff chances with a win on Sunday, but Mosley’s absence could really hurt. Hopefully the Jets have...

The State of the Onion

The State of the Onion

Photo by Rich Schultz/ When I watch the Jets these days I see a number of young players showing promise. I don’t see much else. That comes as little surprise. My former SB Nation colleague Jimmy Kempski compiles the average age of each NFL team on cutdown day each year. The Jets’ initial 53 man roster in 2021 was the youngest in football. Youth can be exciting, but there are pitfalls. There are some issues a lack of experience creates. Take this play by Bryce Hall from the Jets’ loss in London to Atlanta. It came at a critical juncture of the game. The Falcons...

Jets Are A TD Underdog vs Patriots

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ The New York Jets are coming off their bye week to face a reeling New England Patriots team that has incredibly lost all four home games they have played this season. For a team that has spent the last two decades being nearly invincible at home, this is a stunning development. Clearly these are not the same Patriots the NFL has come to fear and loathe. These Patriots are not very good. They are vulnerable. But are they ripe for the picking at home against the Jets? The odds say no. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Patriots are 6.5 point...
