New York Jets

Patriots Gobble Up Jets, 49-19

The New York Jets (4-7) fell to the New England Patriots (8-3) last night in a lopsided Thanksgiving Day game in which the Patriots were able to gorge themselves on a feast of scoring opportunities that the struggling Jets provided. Although the game ended in a 49-19 rout, it began with both teams missing first- quarter scoring opportunities, which gave the Patriots their only scoreless first quarter this season. However, before the Jets were able to capitalize on this momentum, Jets QB Mark Sanchez gave away possession by throwing an interception that led to the Patriots scoring a touchdown early in the second quarter. Soon afterwards Jets RB Shonn Greene made a costly fumble near the Patriots 31-yard line that Patriots safety Steve Gregory was able to recover. On the next play, Patriots QB Tom Brady found RB Shane Vereen who ran 83 yards to deliver the ball to the Jets end zone. That touchdown started a 52-second spree of three Patriots touchdowns, each of which was initiated by fumbles from the Jets side. Besides Greene's initial fumble, Jets QB Mark Sanchez also fumbled when a fellow player bumped into him, and then Jets RB Joe McKnight fumbled the following kickoff return when he took a hard hit from Patriots CB Devin McCourty. In less than a minute, the Jets had gone from being 7-points down to 28-points down. After this Patriots points bonanza, Jets fans could be heard booing their displeasure. Jets coach Rex Ryan later admitted, "I don't blame them for booing."

With the Patriots ahead 35-0 and less than a minute left in the first half, New York finally responded with a 32-yard field goal from kicker Nick Folk, making the score 35-3 at the end of the first half. As the teams left the field at MetLife Stadium for the halftime break, Jets fans could be heard booing, as well as chanting for backup Jets QB Tim Tebow. Tim Tebow had been listed as questionable for last night's game but was on the sideline and appeared ready to play. Tebow later revealed that he is recovering from two broken ribs he sustained in his last game against the Seahawks. Despite the injury affecting his breathing, Tebow was ready to play "in an emergency situation." After getting a safety from a Patriots chop block in the end zone, the Jets scored two more touchdowns, to give the game a final score of 49-19. With this loss, the Jets slip to the bottom of the AFC East division, while the Patriots solidify their position at the top. The Jets face the Arizona Cardinals (4-6) next at MetLife Stadium on Sunday, December 2nd.
