The Patriots have lost two straight, and the Jets have won three straight. Does it seem like two teams going in opposite directions?
Well, yeah, but time will tell if that continues. Either way, it seems the Patriots are at a crossroads. And that will happen at MetLife Stadium tonight — on enemy turf. What’s weird, though, is that it seems the product the Pats have put on the field was different from what they’ve shown over the past decade.
From turning the football over to having bad special teams to being done in by inconsistent or undisciplined play. It’s like the anti-Patriots… right?
“If we’ve established that identity, then I’m upset,” RB Kevin Faulk told colleague Karen Guregian in her game advance before Patriots-Jets. “If we’ve done that, something’s wrong. We have eight games to go. We’re still trying to find that. It’s up to us players to make that (identity). It’s up to us to play better.”
