Game Recap: Patriots at Jets
MATTHEW J. LEE/GLOBE STAFF
The Patriots were at MetLife stadium tonight against the New York Jets. From the very first drive of the game the Patriots dominated the game. 16 plays, 87 yards and a total time of 8:47. The Patriots defense from that point forced an interception on the second play of the first Jets drive. The final score of the game was 33-0. The Pats crushed them. The Patriots defense now has 18 interceptions.
Tom Brady was 31-45 for 249 yards, and 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. Sony Michel led the team in rushing with 19 carries for 42 yards, and 3 touchdowns. James White led the team in receiving with 7 reception for 59 yards. At the end of the first quarter the Patriots had 24 offensive plays compared to the six offensive plays that the Jets ran.
Sam Darnold was pretty bad tonight. At one point the mic for ESPN picked up Darnold saying that he was seeing ghosts. Darnold was 11-30 for 86 yards, and 4 interceptions. Le'veon Bell had 15 carries for 70 yards. Demaryius Thomas had 3 receptions for 42 yards.
The game tonight wasn't much of a game to be honest. It was fun to watch the Jets absolutely suck. Next week the Patriots play the Browns and quite frankly I expect the same thing another young quarterback with a poor line.
