The New England Patriots (8-3) beat the New York Jets (4-7) 49-19, last night at MetLife Stadium from East Rutherford, NJ. What an antrcious loss for the Jets as their season is likely over and the game was over when the Patriots scored 35 points in the 2nd quarter. As soon as New England scored 3 touchdowns in a total of 53 seconds after their were turnovers by Mark Sanchez, Joe McKnight on the kick return and Tom Brady throwing an 83 yard touchdown pass to Shane Vereen. Gang Green threw in the whie towel on a special national TV thanksgiving night. Game Stats: Passing Mark Sanchez didn't have a good game, even though he went 26 for 36 with 301 passing yards and one TD pass, but he commited two turnovers which one of those turnovers was a fumble where he ran into his own teammate (Nick Mangold) and fumbled the ball on the ground which led the Pats to recovery to score an easy TD. Rushing Bilal Powell has been a descent backup to Shonn Greene while he had 12 carries for 40 rushing yards and scored a touchdown. Shonn Greene had 14 carries for 71 rushing yards. Receiving Jeremy Kerley had a good night stats wise grabbing 7 receptions for 86 receiving yards. Dustin Keller caught 5 passes for 64 yards and scored a touchdown. Jeff Cumberland made 4 catches for 58 yards. Special Teams Nick Folk made a 32 yard field goal. Joe McKnight fumbled on a kick return and Julian Edelman recovered the fumble to score an easy TD. Defense Eric Smith recovered a fumble. David Harris had 10 tackles. LaRon Landry had 8 tackles. No sacks or forced turnovers by the Jets defense. Total Stats The Jets offense had 25 first downs, had 405 total yards, went 3 for 10 on 3rd down conversions and commited 4 turnovers on offense. The Jets defense allowed the Patriots to get 25 first downs, 475 total yards, allowed NE to go 11 for 15 on 3rd down conversions and allowed them to score 49 points. Final Thoughts A lot of angry Jets fans were watching in disgust. The crowd was chanting for "Tebow" "Tebow" to have Tim Tebow come into the game, but Rex Ryan said he had two broken ribs, even though he was in uniform. It's pretty obvious by now Rex Ryan is going to stick with the Mark Sanchez until the season is over and Tim Tebow won't get a chance to start at quarterback once. If the Jets are going to make the playoffs which isn't likely going to happen. They would have to win their final five games of the regular season to go 9-7 and pray that they could clinch a wild card or forget about the season. Week 13 (Dec 2nd) - The New York Jets will host the Arizona Cardinals on a Sunday afternoon at MetLife Stadium 1:00 pm on Fox (TV) and WEPN (Radio).
