NY Jets Embarassed By Patriots, 49-19
On a night of giving thanks, the New York Jets and their fans are certainly not thankful for one NFL team: the New England Patriots. The AFC East-leading Pats would hang 35 on the scoreboard in the second quarter, en route to a 49-19 blowout victory at MetLife Stadium.
After a scoreless first quarter, the Pats got on the board with a 3-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Wes Welker. Following that play, the Jets would continuously shoot themselves in the foot, turning the ball over three times en route to 21 Patriot points. The halftime score was 35-3, as both teams would play a very even second half of football, leading ultimately to the 49-19 final score.
Despite a terrible fumble in the second quarter caused by running into offensive lineman Brandon Moore, quarterback Mark Sanchez actually had a good game, going 26-of-36 for 301 passing yards with a touchdown and one interception. There were numerous times throughout the second half of the game where fans at MetLife Stadium chanted for backup quarterback Tim Tebow, but they obviously didn't read the injury report, as Tebow was nursing a rib injury he suffered last weekend against the Rams.
The Jets are back in action next Sunday, as they welcome the Arizona Cardinals to MetLife Stadium for a 1 p.m. kickoff.
