Going into the game, Rex Ryan had been humble, complimentary and downright nice. It worked for the first quarter, a scoreless one, then the Patriots scored 35 straight points in the second quarter to effectively end the Jets season. It was a comedy of errors that included back to back fumbles that were returned for touchdowns. The Patriots scored 21 points in 52 seconds. Brady threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score as the Patriots thoroughly embarrassed the Jets with a 35-point second quarter in a 49-19 victory Thursday night. However, it was a complete effort in all 3 phases of the game. "I was unfortunately on the other side of that in a Pro Bowl where they scored on a fumble, then an interception," Patriots coach Bill Belichick said. "It doesn't take a lot to score like that, defensive touchdowns, special teams, they can add up in a hurry. Nothing surprises me in the NFL." "It all happened so fast," Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo said. "I've never been part of anything like that, but I'm glad that we were on the right side of it." "Discouraged? Of course," Ryan said. "I'll put it to you this way: We're about as wounded as you possibly can be, but we're not dead." You could have fooled the nation as they watched the Jets turn the game into a ‘Keystone Cops’ revival. Julian Edelman, for the second consecutive week, was the brightest star in the middle of a shining performance. Edelman returned a fumble for a touchdown and caught a 56-yard pass for a score before leaving with a head injury. Wes Welker and Shane Vereen had touchdown catches, Steve Gregory returned a fumble for a score, and Stevan Ridley ran one for a TD. Brady finished 18 of 28 for 323 yards before leaving with 2 minutes left in the game. Jets quarterback couldn't believe the beatdown. "That was crazy," Sanchez said. "I've never seen anything like that. This is a team you can't turn the ball over against because they make you pay. That was a great display of that today." Indeed it was a great display, but is business as usual for the Patriots. var switchTo5x=true; stLight.options({publisher:''});
