Patriots Pound The Jets On Monday Night Football
This was the game that football fans everywhere were talking about. The New York Jets going into Foxboro and battling their rival New England Patriots on Monday Night Football. That’s what was suppose to happen anyway. We were anticipating a rugged, hard fought game between the two AFC East power houses. Never happened!
This game was literally over before it started as Tom Brady and the Patriots picked apart the New York Jets, who have one of the best defenses in all of the NFL. It was hard to believe, but the score of this game was 24-3…at half time!!!
For the last two weeks the Jets coach Rex Ryan was on television doing interviews and pumping up his team. All the while, you never heard a word from Patriots head coach Bill Belichick. Why? Because that’s how the Pats roll. They let their play on the field be speak for itself. And it worked as the Patriots completely whipped the Jets by a final score of 45-3.
The New England Patriots young defense stepped up big time and made the Jets second year quarterback Mark Sanchez look bad. Sanchez was coming in to this game with a lot of confidence and was growing as a solid NFL QB. He wasn’t making stupid mistakes and throwing silly interceptions. But last night’s game was different. The Patriots forced Sanchez in to throwing three crucial interceptions. Mark Sanchez finished the game with only 164 yards passing, with no touchdowns and three interceptions. A game the young man will want to forget.
Meanwhile, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady finished the game with 326 yards passing, with four touchdowns and zero interceptions. Brady has so many weapons and he uses them all. His four touchdown passes were to four different receivers. Tom Brady Threw TD passes to Deion Branch, Wes Welker, Brandon Tate and Aaron Hernandez. That made it tough on the Jets because they couldn’t just zone in on one reciver to defend. As soon as they would cover Branch, Brady simply would just drop the ball off to Wes Welker or Danny Woodhead. Woodhead didn’t catch a TD pass but he had some huge runs after receiving the ball. Woodhead, the youngest player in the NFL, ended up with a team leading 104 receiving yards, including a fifty yard run after the catch that really stuck a fork in the Jets for the night.
Simply put, the New England Patriots put on a clinic out there last night as they hammered the New York Jets. But, that being said, it is only one game and I expect the Jets to rebound against the Miami Dolphins, another one of their AFC East rivals, next week. Meanwhile the Patriots will go out of their division to play the Chicago Bears. All I can say is “Look out Chicago!.”
With last night’s beating of the New York Jets, the Patriots are now 10-2 for the season. The Jets fall to 9-3 and are now a game
back from the AFC East leading New England Patriots. An absolutely dominating performance last night by the Pats. right now, they
may be the team to beat and could win it all again this year.
