The New England Patriots really outplayed the New York Jets and won this contest 45 to 3. New England led 17 to 0 at the end of the first quarter and looked flawless in this contest. Quarterback Tom Brady torched the New York Jets secondary going 21/29 with 326 passing yards, 3 passing touchdowns and no interceptions.
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez struggled throwing 3 interceptions last night returning to his rookie form.
People say this team will not win in the playoffs because of the New England Patriots allow so many yards on defense, but they came from behind to beat the Ravens at home in overtime without Randy Moss. The New England Patriots held the Pittsburgh Steelers offense to 3 points in the first 3 quarters and picked apart arguably the #1 defense in the NFL at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The New England Patriots defeated the Indianapolis Colts and quarterback Peyton Manning by forcing Manning to throw 3 picks. Manning has thrown 8 picks in the last two weeks since that game, and they crushed the New York Jets at home 45 to 3 in very convincing fashion. I’m not saying there a lock to go to the Super Bowl, but the New England Patriots have to be the consensus favorite to win the AFC Conference and represent the AFC in Super Bowl 45 at this point in the regular season. Tom Brady has 27 touchdowns, 4 interceptions and over 3,000 passing yards through 12 games. Tom Brady should have around 4,200 passing yards with 38 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions at seasons end. Tom Brady should win the MVP based on how he has played in the regular season, but this football team is focused on winning the Vince Lombardi Trophy. New England is doing what they did when they won 3 Super Bowls in 4 years. Instead of having one go to guy like Randy Moss before the New England Patriots released Randy Moss. The New England Patriots are distributing the football to different playmakers on the offensive side of the football like Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Julian Edelman, Brandon Tate, Rob Gronkowski, Aaron Hernandez, and Alge Crumpler. That was what the New England Patriots did earlier this decade when they had Deion Branch, Troy Brown, and David Givens.
With 4 games left in the NFL regular season the New York Jets are 9-3 and the New England Patriots are 10-2 with both teams looking at playoff spots in the AFC.
