The New York Jets loss a tough one against the New England Patriots 30-23 in Foxboro under hall of fame quarterback Tom Brady’s performance in the 4th quarter.
The Jets came in with a two game winning streak and the number one defense in the league holding opponents to 15 points a game. They had everything a team needs to neutralizing an undefeated team, from running the football to playing great defense but that didn’t go as plan.
Running back, Chris Ivory tweaked his hamstring early in the game which caused a step back for their offense. Quarterback, Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 22 of 39 for 295 passing with two touchdowns. He played well enough for the team to have a chance in the 4th quarter but unfortunately, the defense didn’t match with the Patriots offense late in the 4th.
The offense wasn’t clicking the whole time, which we need to be,” said tight end Rob Gronkowski said according to the Associated Press, who had 108 yards on a career-high 11 catches. ”But in the fourth quarter we just dig down, dig deep.”
Gronkowski said it best saying when it’s money time, Brady is the best at that. Brady finished the game, completing 34 of 54 for 355 passing and two touchdowns. He also rushed for a touchdown and led the team in rushing with 15 yards. It’s no question that the AFC goes through the Patriots as long as Brady is there.
They adjusted drive by drive to apply pressure on the defenses. Regardless of the lost, the Jets have a long season and will put the past behind them. They will have a chance to get ready against the Oakland Raiders despite their slim chance on winning the AFC east.
‘It’s week seven,” said Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, who played in New England last year according to the Associated Press. ”We knew what this game meant in terms of being on top in the division. But we’re fine. We’ve got a long season.
