Patriots - Jets quick thoughts

Wow, the Patriots defense actually showed some signs of life. Granted it wasn’t perfect but theres no doubt this was the best defensive performance of the year.

I am happy with the win but it’s hard to get too excited. The Pats played a little tight, especially on the offensive side. Protecting Brady is always an issue vs. The Jets as of late.

The defense certainly missed Jerod Mayo but they got by without him. Guyton seemed to have a decent game, Spikes seemed up and down.

Yet again the interior pass rush remains MIA. They really need Mike Wright back and hopefully will have him soon.

What a 4th quarter for the offensive line and Benjarvus Green-Ellis. They put the visions of 28-27 Jets from my mind, but it was hairy there for a second.

Mark Anderson has been quite a game sealer. Hopefully he can continue to that when the game is still really on the line.

Huge game for Matt Light, not that anyone pays attention to him unless he has a bad game.

Josh Barrett was missed today on the back end. Ihedigbo was outmatched playing deep, especially on the Holmes TD.

Shocked Hernando not only played but played well.

Not counting the Jets out just yet, but I’m sure he New York media will be all over them until they turn it around.

Excited to take a closer look at how the D played, but this week even the numbers should look good for them.
