As we announced after Week 1, we're looking to chronicle the Patriots quest on the Road to MetLife Stadium for the Super Bowl. To do this, we're highlighting heroes from each and every game. A weekly Patriots MVP voted by you!
Over the past week, we've asked you guys to weigh in on who you believed was the hero of the Week 2 victory over the New York Jets.
So, your Road to MetLife Stadium Week 1 MVP was...
It's not a surprise that Talib earned the MVP honors for the Patriots after his key interceptions in that secondary. Jets' quarterback Geno Smith didn't look half bad most of the game until he threw three picks in that fourth quarter, two of which went to Talib.
That coupled with the fact that Talib also forced a fumble early in that game makes him the obvious choice. The Patriots secondary is looking a lot better earlier than it has in recent years. You have to think that a lot of that is due to the fact that Talib is back there.
How big of a winner was Aqib?
He receives the Road to MetLife Stadium honor with an outstanding 74% of the vote.
Behind him was Julian Edelman with 15%.
Then, Chandler Jones with 7.3%
Tom Brady with 4.2%.
