New York Jets
New England hopes to clinch a first-round playoff bye with a victory in New York.
Kyle Orton threw two touchdown passes, Robert Woods pulled off a slick one-handed catch and Scott Chandler added a snow-themed celebration as the Buffalo Bills shook off a rough week and drubbed the New York Jets 38-3 on Monday night.
Thanks to losses by the Bills and Dolphins, New England’s bye week proved fruitful.
Michael Vick threw two touchdown passes and the New York Jets forced four turnovers while shutting down Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers in a stunning 20-13 victory Sunday that ended an eight-game losing streak.
Kyle Orton didn’t have to do much for the Buffalo Bills, not when the New York Jets had six turnovers – three each by Geno Smith and Michael Vick – in a 43-23 rout Sunday.
The New York Jets have acquired wide receiver Percy Harvin from the Seattle Seahawks.
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.
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.
