New England Patriots
The Jets played better than anyone expected, but New England was still able to hang on for a win.
Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and the New England Patriots held off the New York Jets 27-25 when Nick Folk’s 58-yard field goal attempt was blocked on the last play Thursday night.
Linebacker Jerod Mayo and running back Stevan Ridley won’t play in Thursday night’s game and they may miss the rest of the season.
The New England Patriots are going in one direction and the New York Jets are going in another. On “Thursday Night Football,” the teams are going to face off in an AFC East battle that may not be nearly as competitive as it has been in past years. Former NFL quarterback Trent Green took some time to speak with me regarding both teams, injuries, and their direction for the season.
hese divisional rivals are going in opposite directions. After a season-opening victory, the Jets have lost five in a row. While they had a chance against Green Bay and Chicago in Weeks 2 and 3, they’ve gone backwards from there.
After a slow start, the Patriots are now playing well. After a Week 1 win, the Jets are now looking for answers.
After all these years, Tom Brady still has difficulty pinpointing a reason he and the Patriots consistently beat the Buffalo Bills.
In spite of a couple of injuries along the offense line, Tom Brady found enough time to complete some deep passes.
After reports Friday and Saturday that Tom Brady has suffered an injured ankle and might not play, Brady threw four touchdown passes for the Patriots Sunday in a 37-22 win that spoiled the Bills’ first game under new owners Terry and Kim Pegula.
It will likely be another week until New England fans see the former Pro Bowl cornerback take the field for the Patriots.
