Are the Patriots really Good, or are the Jets really bad?

Updated: Oct 23, 2019

New England once again dominate against their opponent, the New York Jets, winning 33-0 in New York.


Tom Brady and the Patriots defense once again looked phenomenal, meanwhile the Jets proved to the viewers of this game that this is not their year.

Although QB Sam Darnold played pretty well last week against the Dallas Cowboys, he played as equally bad this week against the Patriots. He said, and I quote, "I'm seeing ghosts out there." So clearly, this was a rough game for mic'd up Darnold.


Solely from the first drive the Patriots had ran the longest drive seen all season with a 16-play touchdown. This was also a personal milestone for the Patriots as it was their longest drive since 2017 against the Denver Broncos, which was also 16 plays. The New York Jets could not stop the Patriots offense in the first quarter, leading to a 17-0 lead.


As the game progressed, it didn't get much better for the Jets. There were a total of 5 interceptions for the Jets as the New England defense dominated (once again). The third quarter hadn't even been completed yet and that defense had racked up 21 fantasy points.


"I'd rather have mono than watch any more of this... #Jets" said Kevin Maher (@KMaherNews12) on Twitter.


There was a time in the game where the Patriots had gained more points (24) than the Jets had in yards (20.) Yikes.


By the time the 4th quarter had started fans had expressed boredom in the game. It was 33-0 New England and there was no coming back for New York. The New England Patriots, specifically their defense, had been too dominant.


Perhaps they'll be able to bounce back next week against the Jacksonville Jaguars.


Also next week New England will have to face-off off against the Cleveland Browns back in Foxboro. This should be a good test for the Patriots' offense as they take on one of the tougher defenses in the league.


As Barstool Sports said, the Jets made the impossible happen during this game, and that was make Bill Belichick smile.


Until next time...

Just football, no shenanigans.
