Patriots and Jets: Two Teams Heading in Oppositte Directions

January 2011. The New York Jets traveled to Foxboro to face the red-hot New England Patriots in a divisional round playoff game. Just a month earlier the Patriots had beaten the Jets on that same field 45-3. However, the playoff matchup was a vastly different story. The Jets physically and mentally beat New England en […]

Notes and Observations Week 7: Amendola, Chris Jones Save the Day; Patriots Beat Jets 27-25

Well that was a lot harder than it had to be. Thursday night games all season have been blowouts by the home team. Of course when the Patriots play the Jets, it turns into the closest game both teams played all season and was decided by a last second blocked field goal. The defense looked […]

Do the Patriots have the Jets Playbook?

According to new Browns coach Mike Pettine, the former Jets defensive coordinator, old 2011 copies of the Jets defensive playbook may be in the Patriots’ possession. “The initial playbook itself is actually quite thin, and that’€™s by design,” Pettine told SI’s Greg Bedard. “€œI don’€™t put a lot of graduate-level information in it. We know […]

Week 7 Notes and Observations: Patriots Let One Slip Away, Lose to Jets 30-27 in OT

We are all aware of the controversial call that ended up winning the game for the Jets. Yes, that was an awful call at a critical moment in the game, but you can’t allow the game to be in the referees’ hands. NFL officials, or officials in any sport for that matter, have shown that […]

Week 2 Notes and Observations: Patriots Win Ugly Home Opener vs. the Jets, 13-10

I will preface this by saying that you don’t lose a season in September. No matter how ugly the first two games have been, keep in mind the Patriots are now 2-0 with both wins in the division. Yes they are banged up, and the offense has looked far from sharp, but the defense has […]

The AFC East According to Rex Ryan

 “They [the Patriots] are an excellent football team, but to say they we’ll never catch them, that’s ridiculous. There is no chance, there is absolutely no percent of a chance that I believe that in my heart. And I’ll never concede that.”-Rex Ryan After Thursday’s Thanksgiving massacre, Rex Ryan came out with comments saying that […]

Positives and Negatives: Patriots-Jets Week 12

If anyone had any doubt about how good this Patriots team was, or how bad the New York Jets were, Thursday Night was just the showcase to convince people about the stark contrast between these two football teams. If Rex Ryan actually believes that the squad that showed up to play Thanksgiving night actually had […]

Patriots 49, Jets 19: Notes and Observations from Week 12

To start this off I hope everyone enjoyed a happy and a healthy Thanksgiving with good people and good food. There is plenty to be thankful for from family and friends to good health. However what I am most thankful for is the New York Jets. Without them, the AFC East would be a lot […]

Week 7: Notes and Observations vs. the New York Jets

- I’ve been saying it all season that the problem with the Patriots, contrary to popular belief, is not the defense, but is this supposedly high powered offense. They showed glimpses of brilliance against the Bills, Broncos, and Titans, but to say they are inconsistent is a huge understatement. They lack an identity. – One […]

Podcast: Jets vs Patriots Game Preview

Patriots! Jets! This week always has a special feel to it. We thought it would be appropriate to merge SoB and SoNY for a preview podcast. I had Kristine Reese of Sports of New York  on the SoB! Podcast to discuss every facet of the game. Is the Sanchize ready to take the next step? Is […]

PATS on the Back: Week 13 vs. New York Jets

“Outcoached.” “Outplayed.” “A total butt whooping.” Yup Rex, that about sums it up. How fun was Monday night’s 45-3 blowout win over the hated Jets? I mean really, with all the hype leading up to that game… the “game of the year,” as ESPN and the NFL was touting it… how flippin’ sweet was that […]

PATS on the Back: Patriots-Jets, Week 2

And with a thunderous thud, down went the Patriots on Sunday, falling 28-14 to the hated New York Jets at the New Meadowlands Stadium. Jets coach Rex Ryan must have dined like a king after the big win. Taking a 14-10 lead into halftime, the Pats came out completely flat for the final 30 minutes, […]

The Couch Potato Report: Halfway to St. Patty’s Day Edition

Ladies and gentlemen, the final official weekend of summer is upon us. Fall is already in the air, and so is football… and it is a truly glorious thing. Beyond it being the final weekend of summer, Friday also marks an unofficial holiday… “Halfway to St. Patrick’s Day!” You wouldn’t guess it from my very […]

Darrelle Revis-Randy Moss Matchup Worth Watching

The road to Revis Island is littered with mediocre wideouts that don’t even get the full treatment and still get shut down. But, only the true stud wide receivers actually make it to, and get the all-inclusive package, on Revis Island. Randy Moss was one of those studs in 2009. In two games against the […]
