Heading into tonight’s game, the Jets had everything working in their favor. Vegas pegged them as a two-point favorite, NE strong safety Patrick Chung was out with an injury, and the New England pass defense was the worst in the league. To make things even sweeter, New England’s top corner, Devin McCourty left with an injury. This was the Jets time to take over the AFC East..

However, the Jets turned the ball over three times to this make shift defense while Tom Brady threw for nearly 400 yards and three scores against the ‘vaunted’ Jet defense. Rob Gronkowski was damn near unstoppable, grabbing two touchdowns (could have been three) and Chad Ocho Cinco showed signs of life with 65 yards.

The Jets lost 37-16 and it was an ugly, ugly game for the Jets. New England sweeps the season series and essentially sits two games of the Jets after figuring in tie breakers. New England has the easiest remaining schedule, so the Jets will have to settle for the Wild Card (if they make the playoffs).

Mark Sanchez is not a big-time player. He turned in an absolute dud against a makeshift defense. The offensive line isn’t good. This team has a long way to go before ever becoming a good team.

The Jets won’t have much time to lick their wounds as they head to Denver to take on the Broncos on Thursday night. Good luck trying to stop that unorthodox offense.
