Bill Belichick Appears to Misinterpret Chris Jones’ Pushing Penalty During Patriots-Jets Post-Game Press Conference

It’s understandable if no one know what was going on when Chris Jones was flagged for pushing a Patriots defender on the Jets’ overtime field goal. It was the first time the new rule was called this season. Jones already admitted he did not know the rule, nor did he know what was going on when the flag was thrown. It appears Bill Belichick didn’t fully know the rule either...

Chris Jones Says He Did Not Know Rule He Could Not Push Teammate, But Takes Full Responsibility for Play (GIF)

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Chris Jones simply did not know the rule, though he readily admits he should have. The Patriots had forced the Jets into overtime after Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 44-yard field goal to tie the game 27-27. The Patriots’ defense had made another stop at mid-field, forcing the Jets to attempt a 56-yard field goal. On the attempt, Jones pushed Will Svitek into...

Clarifying the Call: Chris Jones' Penalty During Overtime

New York Jets kicker Nick Folk lined up for a career long-tying 56 yard field goal with 7:17 left in overtime.

The play appeared to be a simple missed field goal that was wide left and gave the Patriots a chance to get yet another come-from-behind win, but there...

Chris Jones’ Game-Changing Penalty in Patriots-Jets Game Was Right Call, But Timing Was Terrible

The Patriots didn’t deserve to win against the Jets on Sunday, but they didn’t deserve to lose the way they lost either. After struggling through an ugly game on both sides of the ball in the Meadowlands, with Tom Brady throwing errant passes and the defense looking porous at times, it was an unusual penalty that ultimately broke the Patriots’ back on Sunday. Undrafted rookie...

GIF of Jets violating rule 913 earlier in the game and getting away with it?

With the Jets trying for a 58 yard game winning field goal in overtime, the Patriots committed a penalty by having one of their defensive players much his teammate into a Jets player. The ruling has received much controversy, as it was correctly called as the act is in violation of new rule 913, however the league apparently did a poor job of explaining this to teams. The above...

Did the NFL alter the rulebook following call against the Patriots?

Aside from Peyton Manning’s return to Indianapolis, the most talked about storyline of yesterday’s NFL action was the controversial pushing call that cost the Patriots a shot at a win against the division rival Jets.

Chandler Jones, Chris Jones Show Greatest Success Among Patriots at Getting After Jets’ Geno Smith in Week 7

The rest of the Patriots (and Jets) had trouble keeping up with the Jonses. Excuse the obvious lede, but, well, it’s true. Chandler Jones and Chris Jones were the Patriots’ leaders in the pass-rush department on Sunday against the Jets. Each player had two sacks and were able to put pressure on Smith pretty consistenly throughout the game. Chandler Jones led the way with...

WATCH: Patriots lose on crazy unsportsmanlike penalty

The end of the game was surrounded with controversy as the Patriots were called for a random unsportsmanlike penalty on a Nick Folk 54-yard missed field goal.

Devin McCourty, Chandler Jones, Logan Ryan Among Five Stars of the Game for Patriots Against Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — As has become the pattern this year for the Patriots, there weren’t many stars on the offensive side of the ball. In fact, this week, all five stars come from New England’s defense. The defense wasn’t perfect, but as usual, they made stops when the team needed them most. They still gave up 27 points and more yards than they should have, but for stretches...
