Patriots roll all over Jets in the first half

Steve Gregory AP

It’s fair to wonder if the 35-3 Patriots lead at halftime of Thursday night’s game with the Jets has more to do with the Patriots playing well or with the Jets doing their best impression of  a ship filled with dynamite getting hit by a flaming comet that’s pierced our atmosphere.

The Patriots turned four Jets giveaways into 28 points and Tom Brady hit Julian Edelman for a 56 yard touchdown pass to make it 35 before the teams headed back to the locker room for the break. All of the points came in the second quarter and 21 of them came in a 52 second span that eliminated all hope for a Jets victory.

 

There have been chants for Tim Tebow at the Meadowlands, as the fans in attendance seem somewhat less amused by Mark Sanchez’s latest flop than those of us who have watched him run into guard Brandon Moore and fumble about 15 times while nibbling at what’s left of the pumpkin pie. Whether because of a rib injury or the coaching staff’s general disdain for his abilities, Tebow hasn’t played on offense yet in this contest.

Brady has hit on 8-of-14 passes for 198 yards and three touchdowns and the Patriots might let him hit the Thanksgiving buffet a little earlier than anticipated if the Jets’ field goal with two seconds left in the half doesn’t foreshadow an offensive explosion for the ages in the second half. In other words, someone remind Tommy to leave a little gravy for the rest of the team.

    Jets fans should protest and just not even come back for the second half. What an embarassing franchise.

    So… No one is writing up anything on Skins-Cowboys? Put down the turducken and give RGIII his due!

    35-3 at the half. Hey, the ’92 Bills came back from that deficit. The only difference is that the ’92 Bills were good.

    At least as a Bills fan we’re expected to be bad every year an the media doesn’t care about us… Must be tough bein a loudmouth jets fan havin to watch this… I will say though, I called this trainRex well before the season started

    Thanksgiving is rougher on the Jets than it is on all the turkeys

    I wonder how many people will leave after Lenny Kravitz?

    RIP to the Jets!!!!

  8. tombradysponytail says: Nov 22, 2012 10:07 PM

    Tom Brady with this defense? Who’s gonna stop us?

  9. purplengold says: Nov 22, 2012 10:07 PM

    it’s bad when the offense has takeaways. it’s really bad when they are referred to as giveaways

  10. raiderswin00 says: Nov 22, 2012 10:08 PM

    PATHETIC!

  11. turtlehut says: Nov 22, 2012 10:09 PM

    The halftime show was the same level as the Jets play leading up to it

  12. ncm42 says: Nov 22, 2012 10:10 PM

    Maybe Sanchez would not fumble so much if he wasn’t nibbling what’s left of the pumpkin pie while he’s playing QB.

  13. caseyanthonymunoz says: Nov 22, 2012 10:11 PM

    I can’t believe that “Sanchez runs into his teammate’s rear end” play didn’t work.

  14. ftblfan9 says: Nov 22, 2012 10:11 PM

    It’s hard to express how bad the Jets are.

  15. bruinsfan19 says: Nov 22, 2012 10:11 PM

    Lets go Pats Wooo!

  16. 93warchant says: Nov 22, 2012 10:16 PM

    the jets look like a bunch of 6 year olds with a greased football Oy.

    The Patriots better ease up or this could mean the end of Wrecks and Sanchez

    http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2011/11/18/rex-ryan-sanchez-will-be-qb-as-long-as-i-am-here/

    The Patriots and the rest of the AFC East want to keep that gravy train of a tandem going as long as possible.

    C’mon Jets fans – rally to the support of Wrecks as always. After all, he’s guaranteed Super Bowl wins for you (albeit in 2009 and 2010)!

    forget it guys the road teams have been dominating the home teams today lets face it in all 3 phases, no deletion and all that its just the way its been today its just one of those days and nights

  19. bathroomben7 says: Nov 22, 2012 10:19 PM

    TEBOW TIME

  20. bushwoodcc says: Nov 22, 2012 10:23 PM

    I just hope that FG Gostkowski missed doesn’t come back and haunt them.

  21. cinvis says: Nov 22, 2012 10:28 PM

    Tebow!!!!!!

  22. profootballwalk says: Nov 22, 2012 10:38 PM

    Jets score!

    2 points.

  23. 49erstim says: Nov 22, 2012 10:38 PM

    Alper…. this game has been rough. All these turnovers are almost comical. They need to blow this Jets franchise up starting at the TOP.

  24. 6allsohard6more says: Nov 22, 2012 10:42 PM

    Somebody said this was a rivalry … can’t be

  25. mattypbillsmafia says: Nov 22, 2012 10:52 PM

    I’m also still confused that no DB in the league sees welkers 5 yard out routes coming… He literally hops five yards and either goes in, or out… Nobody can cover that? No one?

  26. richwizl says: Nov 22, 2012 10:56 PM

    The Patriots are capable of embarrassing many teams and they are particularly harsh on Division rivals.

  27. jetsfaninnj says: Nov 22, 2012 10:57 PM

    Woody, we know you want to win and that you are as sick tonight as we all are. Do something about it. Start over. Look at the Jaguars. Look at the Pittsburgh Pirates. Look at the Marlins. Look at Brown. Dare I say, look at the Mets. Fans have other things to do than spend money on your team when you lose. Figure it out. Happy Thanksgiving.

    It’s no coincidence that the worst game of the day involves the Jets.

  29. txbearmeat says: Nov 22, 2012 11:26 PM

    Watching this football game tonight reminds me why I dislike the Patriots so much. Bill Belichick and his crew are classless.

    Up 35-12 in the 4th Q. Running Reverses. Having Welker return punts. Brady QB sneaking for 1st downs and into the end zone. Chucking the ball deep on every 3rd down. And every starter still in the game. And this is FAR from the 1st time they’ve pulled this crap.

    I don’t say this happily, but if the Pats lose an important player to injury in garbage time, they’d deserve it.

  30. j0esixpack says: Nov 22, 2012 11:27 PM

    It’s 49-12 and the game isn’t as close as the score would suggest.

  31. pastabelly says: Nov 22, 2012 11:28 PM

    They really need to get rid of both Sanchez and Tebow.

  32. daknight93 says: Nov 22, 2012 11:47 PM

    Jets fans should be embarrassed at that poor performance…I can’t see Rex being Jets head coach next year; he has lost the players and they tapped out 49-19 Stick a huge fork into the Jets..They are done for 2012 season.

  33. mistrezzrachael says: Nov 23, 2012 6:44 AM

    Could not happen to a team that plays w/their mouth…How could this happen to the …jets.

    Same way it’s happened for last 44 years.

    Happy 44th anniversary jet fans.
