New England Patriots: A Look Inside the Game Against the New York Jets
Most of the NFL wants one team to stop winning. That team is called “American Nightmare” also known as the New England Patriots. The Patriots have done one thing for over 10 years and that is a win. In week 1 they drew the Pittsburg Steelers. They have met many times in the past in some cases for a shot to play in the Super Bowl. Many thought the game would be close, but the turnout wasn’t. The Patriots won the game easily 33-3. They made the Steelers look bad. In week 2 they headed to a place where they are 1-5 the last three years. The played the Miami Dolphins who they shut out 43-0. Now they get the New York Jets. A team that is trying to find an identity.
The Jets come into week 3 at a 0-2 record. Their starting quarterback Sam Darnold has mono and will miss this game. The Jets backup quarterback Trevor Siemian suffered an ankle injury and is out for the season. This is not a good problem to have. The Jets suffered a week 1 loss to division rival the Buffalo Bills by one point 17-16. In week 2 they lost on Monday night to the Cleveland Browns 23-3. The bright spot is, of course, running back Le’Veon Bell. Bell, of course, came over as a free agent from the Pittsburg Steelers. The Jets are riddled with injuries. They have a tall mountain to climb as they travel to Foxborough. There are much better teams that have struggled to win at Gillette Stadium. With not having neither a starting or backup quarterback it will almost impossible to win.
Of course, the Patriots are coming into to week 3 at a 2-0 record. They acquired Antonio Brown who was released by the Oakland Raiders. Brown has been brought up on rape charges. He has a drama that has followed him no matter where he goes. In his first game, he caught 4 balls and had a touchdown. He still has a lot to learn with the complex offense the Patriots run. This past week that offense featured more of Sony Michael. Michael didn’t like the fact that he was not a big part of the week 1 victory over the Steelers. The Patriots have a passing attack with Brown, Julian Edelman, Philip Dorsett, and N’Keal Harry. The major surprise had been the Patriots defense. Their defense has held the Steelers and Dolphins to just three points.
Now, this explosive defense gets to handle an injury riddle Jets offense. Along with the injuries on offense they are also on defense and look for the Patriots to be even more explosive with one more week for Brown to learn the playbook. They disposed of the Dolphins last week look for another beat down of the Jets. This looks like another AFC East crown in 2019. I see them doing the same thing as they did against the Dolphins.
