Brady has dominated second meetings with Rex Ryan’s defense

As the Patriots and the Jets prepare to renew their rivalry on Sunday at MetLife Stadium, here’s an intriguing statistic that was unearthed by the highly competent folks behind the scenes (which offsets the incompetence of the on-screen guys) at Pro Football Talk on NBCSN.

In his first meeting of the year with the Jets under Rex Ryan, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has won three and lost two.  In the second games, Brady has amassed a record of 4-0.

Brady’s completion percentage in the first games is a mere 56.8 (112 of 129).  In the second games, Brady has completed 68.3 percent of his throws (93 of 136).

Brady has 245.8 passing yards in game one; 322.0 in game two.  Six touchdowns and four interceptions in game one; 11 touchdowns and no picks in game two.

Of course, in 2010 there was a rubber match that the Jets won in New England.  But this isn’t the third game between the teams, it’s the second.  Based on recent history, that could be a very good day for Brady.

    I’m a bit rusty at math, but that 86.8%….I guess the guys behind the scenes are doing enough to offset the guys on-screen… :-)

    Now that Gronks back : I’m afraid the Death Star is fully operational!

    Yes, we all know Brady does much better when he has knows what the defense is doing. Heck, if someone could tell him what the defense is doing just before the snap, he might even win a few rings.

    Whoever wins the turnover battle will win this game.

    AND Brady dominates every important playoff game against the Steelers! Hahahaha

    always a tool gate troll..maybe if he didn’t know the
    defense he would go to 2sb and a championship
    game only to lose in the last minute to a lucky as he’ll catch

    Which is exactly why the Jets will upset the Patriots this week.

    1. Before last week Drew Brees had never lost to the Patriots (as a Charger or a Saint)

    2. The Patsies are riding high after their biggest win of the season. Their most valuable players didn’t wear blue they were wearing white and black stripes.

    3. They will overlook these Jets and Geno and be susceptible to an ambush attack.

    4. The return of Gronk will be a distraction and a non-factor in the passing game.

    Brady is smarter than any other d coordinator. Jets fooled him in 2010 playoffs not gonna happen again

  9. jetsmmt says: Oct 18, 2013 6:48 PM

    What about the third time?

  10. jetsjetsjetsnow says: Oct 18, 2013 7:10 PM

    Its perhaps too long since Jets won against the Patriots to continue justifying calling it a rivalry! Only if we win on Sunday will I consider this ‘rivalry’ legit otherwise its simply just domination…

    This year, Brady is to the Patriots what Alex Smith is to the Chiefs. They are winning on defense, run game, special teams, and efficient QB play.

    Those highly competent people behind the scenes forgot the 3rd meeting that took place once? Where are those stats?

  13. patsfansknowitall says: Oct 18, 2013 9:55 PM

    Because the patriots cheat.

    Please don’t this comment a thumbs down, it really ruins my day.
    :(

    *please don’t give

    The Patriots are win this game without a doubt… Especially if they get the same refs from last weeks game against the Saints… I hope Gino Smith does’t call a timeout because the refs won’t see him and even if they do see him they will act as if they didn’t…

  16. debrnab says: Oct 18, 2013 10:14 PM

    Go Jetts, at least u r at home Whodat Nation behind u ,maybe u want have to play the refs tooooo

  17. valcomm5 says: Oct 18, 2013 10:34 PM

    The team that doesn’t get caught videotaping the practice will win

  18. samapoc says: Oct 18, 2013 10:39 PM

    The only thing Brady dominates is bad taste. Oh and bs favorable calls from refs.

  19. kisstherings says: Oct 18, 2013 11:11 PM

    Since when is 112 of 129 58%?

  20. harrisonhits2 says: Oct 18, 2013 11:24 PM

    Yes Jets fans keep living off your one and only significant victory over the Pats in many many years. You likely won’t get another one in your lifetimes, and certainly not as long as Woody Johnson owns the team since he’s one of the worst owners in the sport.

    The Pats will continue to own the AFCE for a long time to come and the only thing Jets fans have to look forwards to is fighting it out for the cellar as permanent bottom feeders.

    Ilovefoolsball…classic. Losers always make excuses. I have a feeling that you make a habit of it. Remind me, when was the Jets last Super Bowl appearance? Patriots have been to 7 since the last time the Jets went. Probably because of the refs, right? Spy gate? Lol, what a clown. I’m sure you’d make more than minimum wage if it weren’t for some great injustice that is keeping you down too!

    The Patriots never overlook any division game. The next two games are the most important 2 games in a while. Two wins = complete control of the division. The Patriots will be very hungry.

    Maybe Geno can squeeze in a buttfumble to his play book.

    I have to laugh at all of the Patriot haters…

    …It just keeps getting older, and older and older and…

  24. zeke2517 says: Oct 19, 2013 2:37 PM

    What about third meetings?

  25. winorlose6burgh says: Oct 19, 2013 8:34 PM

    I like seeing Rex win a few games and get on tv and talk how there going to the Super Bowl then the PATS,ravens:/ and STEELERS always trash there hopes!
