Rare call gives Jets second chance in overtime and they make it count

New England Patriots v New York Jets Getty Images

If you had the Jets winning in overtime after the Patriots thanks to a personal foul on New England’s Chris Jones for pushing one of his own teammates from behind on a 56-yard field goal attempt by Nick Folk, come on down and accept your prize.

In one of the more bizarre endings we’ve seen this season, Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for violating a rule put into place this season barring exactly that behavior. The call wiped out Folk’s miss and put the Jets in position to get Folk a 42-yard try that made them 30-27 winners.

The Patriots got the ball first in overtime, but Tom Brady misfired on three straight passes after getting a first down and the Patriots were forced to punt. The Jets moved the ball methodically down the field with Chris Ivory running violently, but probably got too methodical once they were in New England territory. That meant a 56-yard field goal try that would have set Brady and company up in prime field position if not for Jones’ penalty.

The victory continues the Jets’ pattern of looking good one week and bad the next. Their defense played a very strong game, forcing Brady to go 22-of-46 and sacking him four times overall. Muhammad Wilkerson continues to be one of the most impressive players in the league this season and he’s putting together a campaign that will draw All-Pro notice if it continues along this path.

Rob Gronkowski had eight catches for 114 yards in his return to action. Brady looked his way often and the good final numbers belie how well the Jets defended the tight end (and everyone else on the Patriots) for the most part.

Geno Smith had his rough moments, but he avoided big mistakes after his first quarter interception and converted third downs to keep the Jets moving all afternoon. Smith wound up 17-of-33 for 233 yards while runinng for 32 more. He’s now led the team to wins four times in the fourth quarter or overtime in his rookie season. Now the Jets just have to get him playing well two weeks in a row and things could get very interesting in the AFC East.

    Yeah, it’s a rare call—-sorta like, um, the tuck rule.

    That has to be the dumbest rule in a league full of dumb rules.

  7. billybenoitlsu says: Oct 20, 2013 4:43 PM

    WHATEVER !!! Tom Brady LOST . Now you know how The Saints feel from being cheated by refs last week …. HAHAHA suck on that loss this week Patty Pats !!

  8. detectivejimmymcnulty says: Oct 20, 2013 4:43 PM

    The Patriots lost to the Jets. LOL. #NewEnglandcantwiniftheyarentcheating

    Thank you for your feedback. We will look into it.

    The Jets would demolish the Redskins.

  9. nfl4days says: Oct 20, 2013 4:44 PM

    Remember last weak when saints fans were “whining about the refs” when that clear as daylight holding call wasn’t made? Enjoy Patriots fans lol.

  10. arwiv says: Oct 20, 2013 4:44 PM

    Both the guy who came up with that rule and the ref who called it should be tarred and feathered. If I was a Pats fan I’d probably be on my way to the store to buy a new TV right now. What a joke of a way to end a football game.

  11. esdawt says: Oct 20, 2013 4:44 PM

    All the Pats haters can stop with the “the Patriots get all the calls” now after the Jets were handed two key first downs on terrible personal foul calls.

  12. achap39 says: Oct 20, 2013 4:44 PM

    All in the name of ‘safety,’ right, Rog? Time to create more obscure rules that don’t impact the game at all!

    Just play 7-on-7 and give them flags already. And no, I’m not a Pats fan.

  13. kperagine says: Oct 20, 2013 4:45 PM

    Pats fans complaining about the refs…You weren’t complaining last week when you won because of a missed holding penalty.

  14. west2south2east2north says: Oct 20, 2013 4:45 PM

    Last week the Saints received a number of bad calls from the refs that I thought were crucial (including a no-call on the last play of the game wear the Saints defensive end was held). These week they were not so lucky. LOL! Go Jets!!!

  15. melecoaze says: Oct 20, 2013 4:45 PM

    How that karma feels?

  16. stampnhawk says: Oct 20, 2013 4:46 PM

    Not a fan of either team , but that wasbrutal…so a bit of a stunt by that Pats blocker, and thus runs into the back side of his player who goes forward….and that’s a penalty?

    Hardly a blatant push. I’m guessing inadvertant contact moving teammates forward happens all the time on FG blocks when there are 11 guys on a line…to call it on a FG miss in OT doesn’t pass the smell test.

    But, they have to give the city of NY some hope that a home team may have a sniff of the SB.

    The only Clutch Brady had this week is hooked to his transmission in his car …..

  19. mrconnors says: Oct 20, 2013 4:46 PM

    Let’s see the idiots of all other NFL teams twist themselves into a pretzel for this one. According to the rule, that was the right call, just like the tuck rule. So I assume you’re all okay with the tuck rule, right?

    Oh, no, wait. You aren’t. Why, because that helped the Patriots, and this call hurt the Patriots. So this rule is good, that one is bad.

  20. mistrezzrachael says: Oct 20, 2013 4:47 PM

    Official making that call should not have a job tomorrow…

    Was a decent game up to that point,,but was such a non call, leaves black mark on NFL.

  21. jtchernak says: Oct 20, 2013 4:47 PM

    The call was complete bs. The rule states that players not on the line can’t push a man on the line. Jones was on the line and his touching of the other man didn’t warrant a penalty at all

  22. keepongronking says: Oct 20, 2013 4:48 PM

    Thats a mistake the Jets would make

  23. koenig61 says: Oct 20, 2013 4:48 PM

    Love how it’s a bizarre ending, and a rare call. Is that because for once the patriots didn’t get the benefit of a call to win a game? Kind of like last week when the refs failed to call holding on the blatant chokehold against the saints on Brady’s 3rd chance to be clutch and win the game? Love it when the patriots get a dose of the medicine every other team has when the refs make these borderline calls for the patriots at end of games to ext,end patriot drives.

  24. ralphwilsonisrich says: Oct 20, 2013 4:48 PM

    Lost to the lowly jets. How sad beantown

  25. 8man says: Oct 20, 2013 4:49 PM

    @vaphinfan:
    Say hello when the Fish win something in this millenium. I mean anything, like a playoff game.

    @wearethesteelers:
    Because the Steelers have been so clutch lately.

    I love it when opposing fans chime in only when the Patriots lose. It’s even funnier when their teams lose or still trail NE in the standings. It’s akin to an obese person calling everyone else fat.

    Hilarious.

  26. dondada10 says: Oct 20, 2013 4:49 PM

    This is the second game this year, Tampa being the first, in which the Jets have won because of a late penalty.

  27. meatsweat says: Oct 20, 2013 4:49 PM

    Let’s hear your opinion Alper, you’re not writing for the AP.

  28. amoses74 says: Oct 20, 2013 4:49 PM

    Patriots haters are really pathetic. Easy to hate the best teams when your team blows. haha. Losers!

  29. detectivejimmymcnulty says: Oct 20, 2013 4:50 PM

    So uh, there’s no way the Jets can fire Rex now.

  30. sschmiggles says: Oct 20, 2013 4:50 PM

    If this is a penalty, then why isn’t a fullback pushing an RB into the end zone also a penalty?

  31. akshunj says: Oct 20, 2013 4:50 PM

    When are they ditching the replacement refs? I thought that ended last year?

  32. thecrimdon says: Oct 20, 2013 4:50 PM

    Not saying that the Pats deserved to win, but I don’t see how anyone could be too happy watching a football game end that way.

  33. tigerlilac says: Oct 20, 2013 4:50 PM

    Alas, this thread is dominated by foolish comments when we could be getting intelligent conversation on how the NFL let a hard fought game be decided by one call be one official; not only on a rare call but a questionable fact that the player even committed the rare foul. Calls like that rob everyone, the winner, loser, and the viewer.

  34. skooter519 says: Oct 20, 2013 4:51 PM

    The refs had to dig pretty deep for that s rule

  35. all4patriots says: Oct 20, 2013 4:51 PM

    these replacement refs have got to go… right?

  36. genoinabottlenyj says: Oct 20, 2013 4:52 PM

    its the butt penalty. personally i dont want to see one teammate bent over while the other pushes his behind from behind. not that there is anything wrong with that…

  37. blakeinfla says: Oct 20, 2013 4:53 PM

    Obviously this will propel the Jets into a season where they don’t finish last….and the Pats will be relegated to another playoff run. I love reading Pats post after they lose all the haters come out and talk about the glory of their team ….and the fin fan with “1972″ in their post , your a fool and make the Fins look stupid we have sucked so long I can remember when we were last good….

  38. arwiv says: Oct 20, 2013 4:53 PM

    mrconnors

    Both rules are idiotic….its not about the Patriots, its about screwing up the game of football. Goodell is quickly becoming the worst commissioner in the history of organized American sports.

  40. rebel21das says: Oct 20, 2013 4:53 PM

    That’s a pathetic way to win a game against a division rival, but I guess that’s what happens when the NFL keeps making BS softy rules each and every year.

  41. boknowsvt says: Oct 20, 2013 4:53 PM

    And because this happened to the Patriots, I’m sure the league will abolish this rule in the offseason.

  42. branbeezy says: Oct 20, 2013 4:54 PM

    Sthu Patroit fans, I didn’t see you complain about the bad calls against the Saints last week.

  43. mec693 says: Oct 20, 2013 4:54 PM

    How is nobody bringing up the PI on Hill on his touchdown catch? Most ludicrous, NBA level of officiating, call I’ve ever seen and it seems to have gone unnoticed. That would have put the Jets up by 10 with 9 minutes to go and most likely put the game out of reach for the Patriots

  44. jkaflagg says: Oct 20, 2013 4:55 PM

    Jets are really blessed this year…..second time an unnecessary late penalty by the other team set them up for a game winning FG…..

    Listen to ask the patriot haters out there, probably just jealous they don’t come from a sports town., reed six on easy to world series, Bruins were in Stanley cup, Celtics were in playoffs and we all know the patriots rule the afc. I guess all they can do is hate since they can’t compete!

  47. tonyugoh says: Oct 20, 2013 4:59 PM

    The Pats should know all about rarely enforced rules being called … #tuckrule

  48. sdsockers says: Oct 20, 2013 4:59 PM

    Watched the OT part of the game, saw the “penalty” on replay several times. Horse-hockey call, but no worse than the penalty called against my Chargers vs. Houston earlier in the season, which also decided the game. The big difference is this call went against the beloved Patriots, so look for the rules to be amended and the ref’s to be re-educated.

  49. nyjalleffingday says: Oct 20, 2013 5:00 PM

    @esdawt

    Are you kidding me? It shouldn’t have even come down to overtime, but the Patriots got gifted a do-over on an incredibly questionable OPI against Jeff Cumberland on a TD play. And that isn’t even bringing up the BS no-call against the Saints last week, tons of holding on the Jets front seven all day, and another questionable call that took a Jets TD off the boards last time the two teams played in a game decided by a single field goal.

    There is a REASON fans throughout the league say that the Patriots play by their own set of rules, and it’s because the refs often allow and enable this. You have to be high on chowdah to think otherwise.

  50. patsbrat says: Oct 20, 2013 5:00 PM

    Yeah, the call was tough, but if you make the game that close at the end anything can happen, and it did in this case.

    The Jets deserved the win. They made a big comeback and for most of the second half their D wouldn’t let us do a thing. Congrats go to the winners.

    Why Josh, why didn’t we throw a screen pass all friggin day?

  51. seacow13 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:00 PM

  52. tigerlilac says: Oct 20, 2013 5:01 PM

    I was at Fenway last night. Great game. Both teams did themselves proud despite some miscues and some managerial decisions that were questionable. Shane Victorino hit a slam a Koji Uehara pitched a perfect ninth. There was no question who deserved to win and that was best for Boston, Detroit, and all baseball fans. The NFL keeps letting fans go home thinking (often for good reason) that the winner didn’t earn the win.

  53. dlk47823 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:02 PM

  55. bradygoat says: Oct 20, 2013 5:02 PM

    Why are saints fans wasting their time to come on here and comment? Does that make you any less obnoxious than whatever pats fans got on your nerves last week. Bad no call on the hold last week, terrible call on the missed field goal this week. It’s all good – pats and saints will make the playoffs. The bills, jets, red skins will not. It’s funny talking about ‘karma’ too. Is ‘karma’ the reason your teams can’t even make te playoffs year after year? Or is it maybe because they’re just not as good?

  56. dlk47823 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:04 PM

    It really sucks when your players don’t know there rules, eh BB?

  57. koenig61 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:04 PM

    Patriots call themselves the class team of the NFL. How they are so much better than everyone else,,but when they lose they can’t take a little ribbing. And as a patriots fan you have to be aware that your team has been the beneficiary of some pretty close/phantom calls to win games? The point is this. Like the rule r not, it’s a rule, and he clearly got in behind the other lineman and pushed him to try and create a wedge to get someone in the backfield to block the punt. In the same way you can’t jump off another defensive player to elevate and block, you can’t get in behind and shove. He committed the penalty. At least it wasn’t one of those border line calls the patriots sometimes get. There was no doubt he got in behind and shoved. Your teams been to 5 SB with Brady, you’ve won 3, stop being so thin skinned on a loss. I think it hurts so much because you’re not used to the calls going against you, and of course because it’s the Jets

  58. bradygoat says: Oct 20, 2013 5:05 PM

    Tuck rule was dumb…this rule is dumb, jets d did a great job most of the game, but I still don’t see them making the playoffs.

  59. blacknole08 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:07 PM

    IT was a stupid call. So it’s ok to help your teammate pick up a first down by pushing him in the back but illegal to do so on a kick attempt?

    Pats got jobbed.

  60. riverace19 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:08 PM

    I really didn’t care who won but that was one of the biggest horsesh*t calls I have ever seen in 30 years of the NFL

  61. genericuser8888 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:09 PM

    Last week, the refs ripped off the Saints and helped the Pats win.

    This week, the refs rip off the Pats to help the Jets win.

    We want the refs to be consistent. It looks like they are. They are ripping off at least one team every weekend.

    In all seriousness though, bad refereeing is the biggest threat to the NFL’s popularity. To put this in language that Roger Goodell will understand: Bad officiating undermines the product on the field. It makes consumers unhappy.

  62. bloodisred says: Oct 20, 2013 5:10 PM

    I’m a fan of neither…the call was b.s. If you decide you want to make a call like that, in a situation like that, it needs to be an obvious case including intent. In this case it was an incomplete stunt … dude came up short on the curl.

  63. andyreidisabeachedwalrus says: Oct 20, 2013 5:12 PM

    I hate New England but that was a bogus call. Also it was hilarious seeing the hoodie on the sideline yelling at the official.

    Cheating isn’t hilarious, loser.

  71. juliusceasar4760 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:17 PM

    Lets see The Pats were 1 of 12 converting third downs. Brady’s completion percentage was in the 40′s. It’s a W, let the whiners whine. It’s gonna be a nice week for Jets fans.

  72. footballbat says: Oct 20, 2013 5:17 PM

    They could’ve (should’ve?) called Pats #25 for being lined up in the neutral zone on the right side on that same kick too. I was surprised they didn’t Flag it at the snap. Guys on the edge get way too much leeway on kicks.

  73. newtonfb22 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:18 PM

    Bottom line ..whoever you root for no NFL team should have the game decided on a call like that. If you want to enforce that rule then start in week 1 in first quarters when the game isn’t on the line. Players and coaches put too much work in to have a call that in the big scheme of things didn’t change anything on that fg

  74. Mr. Wright 212 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:18 PM

    How does it feel to lose due to a made up rule, since all of your asterisk super bowl wins were kick started by one?

    Oh BTW, they have called it four times this year, for those paying attention. It isn’t a rare call, it is a new rule for 2013.

  75. ddaveyy says: Oct 20, 2013 5:20 PM

    How is it bad officiating when the officials made the right call?

  76. cliffclavicle says: Oct 20, 2013 5:20 PM

    Lost in the hubbub is the fact that Brady had yet another poor game, missing throws and getting flustered all day. Having his Gronk back didn’t help much either.

  77. lance19 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:22 PM

    I can understand someone not liking a rule.

    But why are so many people here attacking a ref for getting a call–on a new rule, for that matter–absolutely correct?

  78. 8man says: Oct 20, 2013 5:23 PM

    I’m sure this call and the play will be reviewed and scrutinized sufficiently for all of us to determine whether or not the rule makes sense and if the criteria were applied appropriately. I’m still shaking my head at it and how at any moment, the officials can completely turn around the outcome of the game.

    This was an absolutely huge situation to call it. Are you telling me that we are midway through the year and this is the first time it’s happened? If this had occurred in a playoff game, it would be ugly. If it met the measure of the standards, then congratulations to the eagle-eyed ref who spotted it. If not, then I want to know who called it and what’ll be done.

    Then again, I still don’t have an acceptable explanation for the total abortion that was the Super Bowl light fiasco from last year.

    “3 Brady misfires”

    “Brady went 22-45″

    “wilkerson sacked him 4 times”

    Yea the Jets didnt earn this win. Yea it was a gift. Yup thats it, a gift.

    Jets record: 3 wins 3 losses and 1 gift win
    might not be good enough to make the playoffs oh well always next year! ……………….idiots

  82. tedmurph says: Oct 20, 2013 5:37 PM

    The penalty was correctly called according to the rules. The NFL put out a memo to teams and refs saying it hasn’t been called when it should have. The fact that the Pats coached their special teams that way, is on them, especially on a 56 yd FG Folk probably wasn’t gonna make anyway. Between BB and Brady’s lack of accuracy and zoning in on his binky(Welker last yr and Gronk), I wonder if they both haven’t lost their respective fastballs. Kudos to the jets, but the Pats never should have lost that game. They wastesd a great effort by an undermined D.

    To all the posters, like kperigine, saying the Pats fans are whining about the refs like the saints fans last wk? I counted two. Nothing like saints fans, who are still whining about it.

    To vaphin: you know the Dolphins lost to the Bills at home today, right? Happy days, the Pats lost, to go to 5-2. 1972 cwas 45yrs ago.

  83. wtf_seriously says: Oct 20, 2013 5:37 PM

    That penalty has been called already this season. It’s not bogus, or BS.
    Why are we ripping apart refs for correctly making a call? To feel better about the game needing to be decided on a field goal in overtime?

  84. multiplemiggs says: Oct 20, 2013 5:42 PM

    yea well too bad this isnt baseball and there is no “unwirtten rules” Yall wana keep complaining you can go watch that bore fest with joe shmuck on fox

  85. fatsolio says: Oct 20, 2013 5:42 PM

    I like people crying about the penalty. Fitting given the Pats and the good ol tuck rule. Apparently with that “rules are rules” but here it is the officials screwing over the Pats. Nice double standard

    I also like Brady having another lousy game. What’s the excuse this time? He’s only had one really good game all season against the Falcons and most of the rest have been below average for any NFL QB. ANY other QB would be getting skewered by the media for the mediocre play yet there is Tommy getting the pass since he can do no wrong in the eyes of the media. Pathetic.

    Of course it’s a rare call, it’s a new rule this year! The genius Belicheat gets caught again!

  88. aljack88 says: Oct 20, 2013 5:50 PM

    If the refs had not made that call, would there be anyone screaming about how the refs missed it?

  89. gochargersgo says: Oct 20, 2013 5:54 PM

    All the bitter saints fans need to cool it. Holding is incorrectly called or missed about 10-15 times a game. This is just an absurd rule that has no business in professional football.

  90. eessppnn says: Oct 20, 2013 6:00 PM

    As Patriots fan you never like losing to the yets.
    So Tom is now only 18-5 against them;)
    We are not what we hope to be, if we get to the break 6-2 at the bye great.
    I feel like the special teams coach has to coach them up , 56 yds no need to try it. 26 sure they will probably make it.
    But why risk it on that long of a field goal.
    #badcoaching.
    Either way, nothing won or lost in October. I like the defense play, could our offense have helped them a little.:(
    On to Miami!!!

  91. arwiv says: Oct 20, 2013 6:01 PM

    The “rule” is moronic….and the ref didn’t need to call it, just like they don’t need to call holding on basically every snap (even though its taking place). Yes, the ref screwed up, even though the call was correct; he directly impacted the outcome of a game by calling a penalty that had NO impact on the play in question. Btw, Im a GIANTS fan and cant stand the Pats or the Jets.

  92. TheWizard says: Oct 20, 2013 6:01 PM

    Jets D played great. Patriots D without their big 3 can’t stop Jets on 3rd down. That’s what happened.

    That #2 pick Hightower looks like a stiff out there. Somebody check him for a pulse.

  93. mrfoozball says: Oct 20, 2013 6:03 PM

    Never knew Patriots fans were such a bunch of whiners. Karma’s nothing to sneeze at. Now you know how it feels like from all the gimme-calls from last week.

    Actually, we chime in when the Patriots lose because they cheated. So, payback is tough, Pats fan. And they’re not winning any titles this year.

    Cheating isn’t hilarious, loser.
    ————————————————————-
    Your only hope, since your team probably sucks, is to take great joy in watching a perennial winner lose and bandy about accusations stemming from a single action from the commisioners office as some explanation for why Patriots kicked the snot out of your team over and over. And even that isn’t enough to keep you from the name calling. Yes, we Patriot fans are the losers. Really?

    But since you brought it up, the Lombardis still look shiny.

    Let me just take this minute to point out that this is exactly why you continue to score when the rest of the world thinks the game is out of reach or your team is “running up the score.”

    To avoid any potential comeback forcing overtime or a mistake or mistakes by either your own team or a referees call that could alter the outcome of the game if it is less than a three score difference.

    Alas, this thread is dominated by foolish comments when we could be getting intelligent conversation on how the NFL let a hard fought game be decided by one call be one official; not only on a rare call but a questionable fact that the player even committed the rare foul. Calls like that rob everyone, the winner, loser, and the viewer.

    The Stephen Hill touchdown that was called back on an OPI call that wasn’t was an even worse call – You can argue that the “pushing” rule is nonsense, but the player did commit the foul.

  97. kev86 says: Oct 20, 2013 6:41 PM

    Weak call but great win for Jets. if Pats are that much better than Jets before the game, it shouldn’t have been that close anyway.

  98. green41563 says: Oct 20, 2013 6:50 PM

    ==================================

    In all fairness to Saints fans, this looked more like the DE was in a sleeper hold than a run of the mill holding penalty and somehow it wasn’t called. It really was the most obvious non-call in ages.

  100. ironyisadeadscene says: Oct 20, 2013 6:55 PM

    They were up 21-10 and couldn’t hold the lead. Deserved to lose.

    You sir, are an idiot. He pushed off…..I know Jets fans aren’t knowledgeable about the game but there’s no need to prove it in writing

  101. dlk47823 says: Oct 20, 2013 7:00 PM

    Jets dominated in every category of this game. Geno is on the rise and Tommy is struggling. Sorry you don’t like the rule, but you broke it.

  102. nyjalleffingday says: Oct 20, 2013 7:14 PM

    @ironyisadeadscene

    Either Stephen Hill (my bad about calling him Cumberland earlier) has the strongest fingertips in the history of mankind or the Pats DB pulled a Crosby quality flop job. Seriously, LeBron watched that play like “give that man an Oscar!” If that was pass interference then there should be a PI call on every single play. I saw more egregious PI from both teams on plenty of other plays. Quit whining.

  103. oiler1980 says: Oct 20, 2013 8:09 PM

    Just a football fan here. You don’t make that call as an official at that time in the game. Officials could call holding on every play of the game but they don’t unless it’s obvious. Yes, according to the new rules the call was correct, but you don’t make that call in overtime which basically was going to determine the outcome. The intent of the rule is to stop people lining up behind each other and pushing not a guy on the line of scrimmage doing a stunt.

  104. billybenoitlsu says: Oct 20, 2013 8:13 PM

    Hey “gochargersgo”
    you have alot of nerve telling Saints fans to shut it .
    Don’t be mad because your Charges let Drew Brees and Darren Sproles come to the Saints. Go tell your QB to stop have kids and play football…

  105. multiplemiggs says: Oct 20, 2013 8:28 PM

    @arwiv I know your a Giants fan which basically proves you have little to no knowledge of the game but to say the rule is pointless and directly effected the outcome of the game proves you are a stupid person as well. The PLAYERS voted for the rule and it prevents injuries. Two players pushing up on one player? Thats 1, 300 pounds. Thats when legs snap and knees blow out. I guess trolling Jets articles is all you can do to get a high being your team is pathetically unwatchable.

  106. multiplemiggs says: Oct 20, 2013 8:33 PM

    @ironyisadeadscene Actually Jets fans are the most knowledgable fans in football. Hill made it look worse than it was, he had his hand on the corners side and the guy jumped the wrong way. In no way did he push whatsoever. You had your lucky break and still lost. Keep being a baby. God I love being right all the time.

    Do you hear yourself? Are you really trying to call the most knowledgeable fanbase (because you are still bitter over previous year losses) as unknowledgeable and trolling Jets columns, when we couldn’t care less about the Jets until their fans get out of line, forgetting that they are forever inferior and second rate to the Giants?

    The Giants being out of play this year does not nullify things, they won 2 years ago. Unlike the 10 for New England and the FORTY FIVE for the jets.

  108. multiplemiggs says: Oct 20, 2013 10:03 PM

    lmao ok guy. Listen to the radios tomorrow as they will be swamped by calls from bitter Giants fans crying about the rule bc their team is unwatchable and irrelevant. Fans knowledge of the game doesnt come with Super Bowl wins but there you go playing that card. Same old story from you morons. At least I can thank you for proving my point, bc as we now all see…you read my comment in this Jets column. Troll ;)

    “Do you hear yourself? Are you really trying to call the most knowledgeable fanbase”

    A++ humor bro, I am DYING over here, that’s hilarious! It seems that the only people who don’t realize that the only difference between Jets and Giants fans is a massive ego/superiority complex are the Giants fans themselves.

    I mean, forever inferior to the Giants? Considering that you just *love* to bring up titles won, are we just gonna forget the 17 years the Jets had more SB wins than the Giants, or is this the part you start pretending that anyone gives a hoot about pre-Super Bowl era championships anymore? Jeez, I could just say that I’m a Steelers or 49ers fan and viciously make fun of your dumpster fire of a team and you’d have nothing to say back, following your own terrible logic. Plus, it takes cojones the size of Eli Mannings forehead to call other fans bitter while you’re here on PFT trying to talk smack about the Jets after they win, despite your own team struggling to get its first win almost half way through the season.

    I’ll give you one thing though, at least the Giants have had historical successes, unlike the Patriots, who were a laughingstock until 2001 but still like to pretend that they’ve owned the AFC East since it’s creation.

    Listen to ask the patriot haters out there, probably just jealous they don’t come from a sports town., reed six on easy to world series, Bruins were in Stanley cup, Celtics were in playoffs and we all know the patriots rule the afc. I guess all they can do is hate since they can’t compete!

    How’d all that work out for your teams oh thats right they were eating fried chicken with TIto when they each choked in the playoffs except for the sox the only way they went to the playoffs last season is if they purchased a ticket

  111. 4thand48 says: Oct 20, 2013 10:22 PM

    agreed that’s a tough call to hang a game on. but when is the infraction going to happen? when the game is on the line.
    jets win was weak. shoulda crushed the pats given their injury situation. kudos to them they made it a good game.

    When you say the pats act like they’ve dominated the division for so long…

    Pretty sure 10 division titles in like 12 years is complete domination. 18-5 vs your team is pretty embarrassing considering you play them twice every year. But its ok Boston clearly is struggling in other sports too right now lol. Dont worry tho second place is great. Your team seems to be used to that. Congrats on beating a team whose 3 best defensive players were out. Im sure Talib couldn’t cover Curley. This is the worst pats team talent wise thats been on the field all year(not to mention in years) and it took the jets overtime and a comical call to beat them.. CONGRATS

  115. sanclementejedi says: Oct 21, 2013 10:16 AM

    Well if your definition of rare is that it has been never called previously then I guess it was rare.

  116. capone888 says: Oct 21, 2013 10:23 AM

    You can’t have it both ways. You guys complain when the refs blow a call, and now you are complaining when they got the call right.

    The last penalty committed by the Pats is clearly written in the rulebook. The player obviously committed the penalty. The ref called it, and gave the correct call and yardage.

    What are you guys whining about…the refs getting the call right???

  117. boisestatewhodat says: Oct 21, 2013 11:01 AM

    Not giving the Saints a 1st and 10 after a textbook Brees hard count is pretty rare too…what goes around comes around I suppose. Lets not even talk about the Junior Gallette bear hug (no call)at the line of scrimmage during the last play of last week’s game.

    If you think we won because of a holding call last week, or lost because of that dumbass call yesterday, you should switch to a simpler game. Golf, maybe.

    @mike

    You do realize that you just managed to gloss over 40 years of history, during which the Patriots were largely nothing but a laughing stock. You barely even had division titles before Tom Brady entered the picture. The Pats couldn’t even sell out their own stadium for years, Jets fans could just walk up to the gates and get great seats because at the time all the Patriots fans were either A) not born, B) Steelers fans, which they will revert to being once TB12 retires, or C) not caring about the Patriots because everybody knows that there are no Patriots fans, just RED SAWWXXXX fans on vacation and real Pats fans are a myth.

    P.S. Last time we played, we were without Coples who came up with a sack and Kerley, who spend all day killing you, the refs took a touchdown off the board from us, and you STILL only won by 3 with the best quarterback of all time, so why don’t you stow the faux-superiority, eh? The Patriot juggernaut is slowly dying, for the whole country to watch and enjoy.
