Moss beats Revis deep, but can't beat Cromartie

Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss went one-on-one with Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and beat him deep. Then he went one-on-one with Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie and got beaten.

Moss scored his 150th career touchdown on one of the best catches of this young NFL season, blowing past Revis on a deep ball from Tom Brady and catching it one-handed in the end zone.

But in the third quarter Brady went deep to Moss again, and this time Cromartie was in coverage because Revis is out with a hamstring injury. Cromartie stayed step-for-step with Moss and actually did a better job than Moss of adjusting with the ball in the air, and Cromartie intercepted the pass at the 3-yard line.

Although Moss’s 34-yard touchdown was sensational, it was his only big play of the day so far. In all he has two catches for 38 yards.

After Cromartie’s pick the Jets drove down the field, kicked a field goal and cut the Patriots’ lead to 14-13.

  1. You forgot to mention that Brady badly overthrew Moss, Cromartie sucks, he’ll be the latest addition to the Moss HOF highlight reel by the end of the game…and Revis left due to a BRUISED EGO after moss PWNED him with the effortless one hand.

  2. Getting nervous about that bet yet, Florio?
    I know you’re back there somewhere, hiding behind this Michael David Anthony Tom Jack Ralph Smith guy.

  3. Cro runs a 4.2 or so, and in deep coverage, there aren’t many better.
    Revis has a pulled hammy.
    You do the math.
    Now if Moss wants to run a slant over the middle, he’ll take CRO to school.

  4. Jets have over 8 yard per attempt and 5.7 yards per rush and the lead. New York offense beginning to have its way.
    Patriots a missed FG. Jets made a long FG and have converted for two.
    Unless Bieber….err….Brady answers and the defense gets a clue it’s game over.

  5. i love the premature articles and we just got another pick on moss… so where is this school moss is suppose to take us to

  6. The defensive holding against Moss just is not being called. The calls that went against the Jets last week are not being called this week.

  7. But, but, but…all the expert comments said that the Pats were going to win 35-7! How is that possible that the Jets dominated this game? Perhaps being able to beat the computer on Madden doesn’t elevate you above idiot status.

  8. Oh Patriots fans, where are you?
    How do you like your crow served? Would you like foot or humble pie as a side?

  9. Cro is a very very average CB. To compare Cro to Revis is like comparing apples to piece of crap.

  10. Look for Revis to tank it a bit, apparently all of his conditioning during his holdout was not football related conditioning.

  11. Where is all the Jets hate?! Everyone too scared to come on here now that they showed their dominance. Sanchez outplayed Brady all game!

  12. J E T S beat my Patriots like they do every year. We Always split with the J E T S and the Dolphins. I prefer we lose early rather than late. Revis is a bitch who used the injury as an excuse for getting beat. Mr Beiber can’t throw ints against the J E T S

  13. Sanchez did outplay Brady, he stayed within the Offense.
    Moss, for all of his gifts, has GOT to go. Brady’s insistence on forcing it to Moss is killing the offense. The Pats D is YOUNG, they don’t know “how to win”. They’ll come along in time. But until Brady stops reverting to Welker and Moss mode, they’ll continue to struggle.
    The TE’s should’ve been featured heavily. Instead Moss caught a highlight reel TD and cost 2 INTs. Great job, Tom. You showed ’em!

  14. I don’t know where the Patriots fans are at, but here is a DOLPHIN fan saying get ready to get beat down next Monday…I’ll be there for our home opener and I can’t wait!!

  15. Man…my Pats played like horseapples. The coaching was attrocious as well. Even I’m starting to wonder why we used to make second half adjustments…might it have been the videotapes in fact?!?!? I know…dead horse, but these guys on defense are an absolute joke and they come out in the second half of games not knowing their ass from their elbow…
    BB the GM strikes again…let’s get Parcells to shop for the groceries. Now THAT would be interesting.
    Moss shouldn’t get all the blame for this loss…he left a few plays out there. The only thing Revis hurt was his ego and his pride. He got burnt by the slouch…that was sick.
    Cromartie did very well…played a much smarter game. Brady on the other hand was an idiot… Was HE calling the plays or was there another nitwit on the sidelines calling for these softballs to be lofted up there?!?!?!

  16. I am a Pats fan and I am here. Not a great game by the Patriots and I admit it. They looked good in the 1st half and tanked it in the 2nd. But like Rick says, series is alway split so we will see what happens in Foxboro next go round

  17. O man defense shut down NE in the second half chad henne looked like shit today especially compared to the sanchize. I like our chances go ahead miami score 14 points with the wild cat we got something called a high flying offense now you don’t have favre throwing pics to help u next week. Do I hear ampats???………. no how about koamisifan???…….. I wonder where they are??? Haha the silence in the room is great.

  21. where the heck is that dbag ampats? not surprised he aint saying squat after sanchez tore up the pats.
    next up flipper and their turd fans!

  22. 2buku4u

    can’t believe i’m gonna defend the pats but they WERE starting a lot of young players. TWO starting rookie corners, right? pats might be on hold this year ( despite thrashing cincy who beat baltimore!?!) but as long as brady and bb are around…

  25. Patriots fans showing humility. I love you guys, good sports.
    Where’s MistressRachel at? I know my boy Ampats wants some love too.

  26. Am I the only one who thinks moss mailed in this game, he never reached for a pass over the middle could have caught a sideline pass he didn’t try to fight on that interception ……….
    was he trying to send a message he had a bad game………..

  27. Butler is a second year player…and he sucked last year too in the few times he got on the field. I don’t think he was the 2nd round find that BB thought he was….shocking as that may be.
    They are young and definitely will need time to grow…but damn…they just are not smart, tough football players like we used to have. Even the coaching is atrocious… who are these video geeks that are coming up? Is there no one else BB feels like hiring (ie trusts) to bring in some fresh ideas? These guys (offense very much included) just simply wilt in the second half. We’re still waiting on a quality road win…been a couple of years since one.
    I’m just frustrated because in years past, we’ve seen some really smart, timely football played…it seems that as smart as BB is as a coach, he’s a nitwit when it comes to personnel. Did that second half offense look like ANYTHING that Weis would have called? Hell no…
    They lost today in all phases of the game. It was a complete team effort in that regard. Kudos to the Jets who really played a lot smarter game this week…well played sirs, well played.

  28. what happen ne team had the flu,jet fan pull the fire alarm at 2 in the morning let me guess brady had 5 broken ribs and a hang nail it’ll be something lets have it 28 14 here we go

    Sam place you were last Monday. Crying in their chowder.
    Checkdown, and the whole Jets team, sucks.

    You played? You on the Jets? You can stop refering to the Jets as we, choad. Brandon Marshall is going to kill the Jests next week. And you will be nowhere to be found Sunday night or Monday. Cuz you will be icing down from the big game, right?

  31. Another Pat fan here. Good job Jets, they outplayed the Pats in the 1/2 half and deserved the W. Butler needs help desperately as he was the weakest link in the defense. Good game and I’m looking forward for the rematch in December.

  32. @Sloan
    wow…
    @jets are stacked
    I’m sure there will be more jets fans because they have infested South Florida despite you guys constantly talking down on the area.
    …and we don’t need Ginn to beat you guys, our defense is just as good as yours and ours is UNDERRATED… you can run, but you can’t hide sanchez

  33. @BigBlueFan
    That was a funny post u had especially since the Giants are getting publicly embarrassed right now. I almost feel embarrassed for you!
    But on another note, to that stupid Dolphin Fan going to the home opener against the Jets on Monday night, you may be a little late to the game seeing how they are playing Sunday night you moron! Fins are 2-0 while playing 2 teams that are combined 0-4 this year. Your team sucks and they are going to get manhandled next week! Then you will all disappear from the board much like amapat did this week.

    “Good game Jets
    Also ampats is a disgrace and embarresment to all Patriots fans”
    wow. lots of good sports here. but the acknowledgement of ampats sluggery is truly heartwarming. you guys raise the level of this ‘place’to where it should be.
    go pats!
    ok that’s too much. go jets!
