Tom Brady, one of three Players of the Game, bites into a turducken drumstick after the Patriots’ 49-19 Thanksgiving Night win.
After a long day of turkey, stuffing and everything in between, the best part of the day finally arrived. The injury-battered Patriots and fast-fading Jets faced off for the second time this year on Thanksgiving Night in the Meadowlands as the Jets tried to salvage their season with a win over their archrivals. The game was nothing short of bizarre with a scoreless 1st quarter followed by a 38-point 2nd quarter as well as the first 35-5 score in NFL history. When all was said and done, the Patriots won their fifth straight by a score of 49-19.
Rex Ryan, fresh off of eating three or four Thanksgiving dinners, led the 4-6 Jets into the Thanksgiving Night game against their most bitter division rivals. The short week proved killer for New York as the Patriots torched the Jets for 49 points including their first 35 in the 2nd quarter. The win improved New Engl...

Turkey tastes even better after a victory.
Tom Brady and the Patriots were too busy trouncing the Jets 49-19 on Thursday night to worry about a Thanksgiving meal, but that didn’t stop a few of New England’s standouts from enjoying some bird after the game. Brady, Vince Wilfork and Steve Gregory caught up with Michele Tafoya after feasting on Rex Ryan‘s Jets, and the trio received...
Bill Belichick Sound FX (by Viraj Patel)
Here’s last night’s Sound FX episode featuring BB, good stuff. Especially interesting how closely he’s shown dealing with the defense while trying to stop the Colts running everything to the Pats defensive right side.

If you're a New England Patriot fan, this is quite possibly the funniest thing you've seen in a football game since Gus Frerotte headbutted a wall. If your a New York Jet fan, this is Exhibit A for all you folks clamoring for Tim Tebow (psst: he's not the answer).In the video, in case you missed it, Patriot DL Vince Wilfork blocks Jet G Brandon Moore into the hole...
Though not facing each other, Tom Brady and Peyton Manning helped CBS to a double-digit increase for Sunday’s NFL national window. The Week 11 NFL national window, featuring Colts/Patriots, earned a 14.5 final rating and 23.6 million viewers on CBS — up 12% in ratings and 10% in viewership from coverage featuring Chargers/Bears last year (13.0, 21.5M), and up 2% and flat, respectively...
(via Silverman’s Best: Patriots at Jets - 11/22/2012)
If you’re a Patriots fan, that was sure a fun second quarter.
The Jets handed New England four turnovers and yielded 35 points in just 15 minutes of action — all after a scoreless first quarter. The totality of the Jets’ breakdown is hard to encapsulate with words, but perhaps it was best personified by the image of New York quarterback Mark Sanchez running straight into his...
Happy Thanksgiving. Now go set your lineup for three games in Week 12 that are probably starting way too early to your likeability. There are a few...

The Headline: Jets implosion sets platform for big Patriots win
To steal a line from Anchorman, “Boy, that escalated quickly… I mean it really got out of hands fast!” What the hell happened in that second quarter? After a scoreless first quarter the Patriots went on a scoring rampage in the second quarter thanks to the Jets turning...
If there's one person New England Patriots fans should be thankful for, it's Mark Sanchez.
The Jets' inept quarterback had a holiday that he'd like to forget, as the former fifth overall pick bumbled his way around in a laughably bad performance that had Jets fans clamoring for Tebow Time.
Unfortunately (or fortunately) for Jets fans, Tebow never saw the...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Thanksgiving divisional slugfest between the New England Patriots and New York Jets.Nick's take: Ah... Thanksgiving dinner, beer and Jets vs. Patriots. Few things are better. Rex Ryan will have Gang Green ready, and the Jets will divide their rushing attempts evenly between Bilal...
Through one quarter, the Jets had only managed to commit one crushing turnover and were actually hanging with the Patriots. Granted, New England put a touchdown pass on the board to Wes Welker within the first minute or so of the second quarter, but New York responded with what seemed to be a decent drive. But that seemingly productive drive ended with a Shonn Greene fumble.
