Patriots beat Jets for 12th straight time

The Patriots and the Jets share a division, but they haven’t been rivals for years and that isn’t changing this year.

Mac Jones threw two touchdowns,Damien Harris ran for two scores, and J.J. Taylor ran for two more in the fourth quarter as the Patriots ran their winning streak over the Jets to 12 straight games. The 54-13 win moves the Patriots to 3-4 on the season and marks both their first home win of the year and their highest point total of the season.

Jones was 24-of-36 for a career-best 307 yards and Harris posted 106 yards on 14 carries. It’s a season-high for Harris and he’s now topped 100 rushing yards three times this season. The Patriots picked up 554 total yards of offense in the unit’s best performance of the season by a wide margin.

The Patriots also got a touchdown pass from wide receiver Kendrick Bourne, who hit Nelson Agholor to open the scoring in the first quarter of the game and provide a hint that everything would be working for New England on Sunday.

The Jets failed to score points in the opening quarter for the sixth time in six tries this season. Their offensive situation got even worse in the second quarter when rookie quarterback Zach Wilson had to go to the locker room with a knee injury after a hit by Patriots pass rusher Matthew Judon. He was ruled out of the game at halftime and his status for Week Eight and beyond will be a hot topic at head coach Robert Saleh’s postgame press conference.

Mike White made his regular season debut in relief of Wilson and threw a touchdown a couple of plays after entering the game, but couldn’t sustain that early success. He finished 20-of-32 for 202 yards and two interceptions and the Jets’ lack of an experienced backup will likely become a topic again for Saleh.

Whoever is at quarterback for the Jets next weekend will face the Bengals. The Patriots will try to get to .500 in Los Angeles against the Chargers.

  1. Why were there people that thought a team that almost beat two 5-1 teams was going to lose to the Jets?

  2. I thought Belichick would try to get to 60 against the Jets after the fumble recovery at the 2 minute mark. He loves nothing more than beating this organization to a pulp when he can.

    _____________

    And he almost always does!!! He and Brady both despise the Jets organization more than anything.

  4. I’m waiting to see the chest thumping from the Pats fan after they beat the two worst teams in the league.

  5. The jets are just a terrible franchise. It starts with the owner and then polluted every level down. Blow this team up and start over so it can’t destroy anymore talents. Just awful.

  6. To borrow a quote from Wayne Gretzky many years ago talking about a lousy team he was playing, the Jets are truly a Mickey Mouse organization.

  7. Patriots cooked them as expected. Every level was great Mac Jones had his best game so far, Harris went over 100 yards and didn’t fumble, plus as soon as Wilson went out the defense smelled blood in the water. Nicely done. Next week is the real test especially since the Chargers are coming off a bye week.

  8. People act like the Patriots have been blown out of every game. The only one that wasn’t right down to the wire was the Saints. The other 3 could have gone either way. The groceries are simmering together and get better each week.

  9. I’m just here to read all the Pat’s haters talk smack how they beat the jets it doesn’t count etc. They live for the Pat’s more then there own teams.

    Mac Jones is elite

    That’s gracious of you to say, especially as a long-time Jets fan. Today must have been difficult for you, but you clearly handle these defeats well.

  12. You start by beating the teams you are supposed to beat.

    Then the next step is beat everyone else. Patriots are taking that next step.

    New England fans have gone from championship contender to close now counts in horse shoes, hand-grenades and Patriots losses.
    Is this what it’s come down to? So soon?

  14. Funny how pats fans kept saying the schedule was soft for other teams when they were winning and saying losses are losses no matter how good you played, to now changing that tune to fit their narrative.

  15. Kraft asked Richard Seymour which game he wanted to be inducted into the Pats HOF. Seymour picked the homecoming game against the Jets.

    Maybe Kraft will hang a banner

  17. Hang on, the Pats had almost 1-3 advantage in ref help including intentional blindness on some calls to hang in the Dallas game, and now they count that as some sort of victory to explain why they suck so hard they only beat the Jets?!?!?! Is that what’s happening now!?!?!?

    After 20 years of excellence I’ll take a decade being in the middle of the pack. Now how do you feel about your lousy team?

  19. Like when the Dallas CB hit the Pats WR in the face mask, which would have allowed them to keep the ball in OT

  20. The Pats have a long way to go, but every time Belichick hears the word “Jets” he sees Roger Hoodell’s smirking face. Pity them.

  21. Players across the NFL are dropping like flies. Injuries will have a big impact this season. Who knows what teams will rise and fall. Who expected KC to start 3-4 and look bad doing so?

    Forget the score. The improvement is evident. Bill is opening up the Pats offense and getting more guys involved. The OL was much improved today. The defense is still rather conservative and the back end of the D is very banged up. Special teams were clean today. Three forced turnovers and no Patriots turnovers equals a +3. Still too many penalties for too many yards.

    Mac is impressive. That’s huge.

  22. After 20 years of housing the NFL golden boy and marketing focus, we are now have a losing season but the NFL needs east coast teams to win enough to keep viewers at least to mid season.

    There footballpat i fixed it for you!!

    Why don’t you include Dak getting hit on the facemask by pats d that would have extended a drive and wouldn’t have made overtime a thing. Oh but that would be good and pat fans are evil, right. That’s why you all keep harping in the one, but not the other, because pats fans are evil?

  24. Pats looked good today tiger, and they’re better than a 3-4 team, but the Jets are truly terrible. Still, except for the Saints game, there seems to be encouraging progress every week. I thought they’d start off a little better though. I don’t think they can make the playoffs at this point(at least 10-7), but they should be good by the end of the yr.

    Players ARE dropping like flies. But, I guarantee they try to blame it on the 17 gm season, even though we are only 3 preseason and 7 reg season gms in.

  25. 3&4…. Getting better & will be interesting to see them in November & December when the games REALLY matter…..
    Thank God we got Mac Jones & what’s even more amazing is that we gave up ZERO draft capital to pull it off….
    The Futures so bright I gotta wear shades!!!

    Wow—slow down a tad…

    No one here is “evil” because we merely comment on football.

    Holy hyperbole.

  27. Pats fans have always had the “could have” thing going more than most fanbases, even in the glory days.

    Back then, it was “we should have won by more, if that fumble hadn’t happened.” As though fumbles aren’t part of the game. Now, it’s “we could have a much better record”, if this & that didn’t happen.

    That’s football. Stuff happens. Good teams usually win despite the stuff.

  28. Back then, it was “we should have won by more, if that fumble hadn’t happened.”

    Little bored on a bye week? NEVER happened.

  29. “Back then, it was “we should have won by more, if that fumble hadn’t happened.”

    Little bored on a bye week? NEVER happened.”

    Maybe not you – but most internet fans. I don’t have any data on non-internet fans, so don’t want to stereotype the whole fanbase.

    Certainly, all offseason, the 1st Bills W over the Pats “should” have been a win for the Pats, because Cam fumbled at the end. But that’s the kind of play that determines a game. If it should have been a W, it would have been. The Bills receiver dropped an easy TD on the previous drive. There are a lot of plays like that during a game.

    The Pats are 3-4. They should be 3-4.

  30. I never said the Pats shouldn’t be 3-4. I said they’re better than a 3-4 team. There’s a difference for anyone that has some semblance of reading comprehension.

    “Back then, it was “we should have won by more, if that fumble hadn’t happened.”

    You can’t produce 1 example of a Pats fan posting this on PFT. Whatever excuse or qualifiers you throw in. You made it up.

  31. The Patriots crybabies can say whatever they want “oh it the Jets”
    Ask the Titans about the jets.

    Any time you can put 54 up in the NFL that’s pretty good no matter who the team is you’re playing

    You left out the dolphins. They went tor to toe with them too

  33. Imagine wanting Belichick fired only because you’re mad he’s still in NE and Brady isn’t 😂

  34. Woody needs to walk in Monday morning and fire everyone! Bring back Rex Ryan! The only fun years as a Jets fan was when he was there

  35. Pats fans are evil because they don’t care when their team gets major referee help, like it’s their birthright and they rest of us need to just swallow it.

    If that’s the type of fan you are then you are evil – no sportsmanship, no class, no decency.

    And yet you gave so much time and effort invested in doing exactly that. Lol.

  37. Love bills fans lecturing when they haven’t won a Super Bowl Talk about being out of depth

  38. The better Mac Jones plays, the more regret Kyle Shanahan will have for not drafting him. He flip-flopped and got swayed by outside voices of the trendy mob. A good pocket QB will never go out of style.

  39. Imagine wanting Belichick fired only because you’re mad he’s still in NE and Brady isn’t

    —————————-

    The longer he stays, the more he will be exposed.

  40. No class Bill B runs up the score. Not surprised. I guess someone told him his record without Tom Brady is 63-75.

  41. Bill ran up the score because one Robert Saleh was doing a dance on the sidelines during a 49er blowout of the Pats a year ago. Now he coaches the team Belichick hates the most. The worst team in the NFL with a hurt meal ticket QB. How are your dance moves now Bobby? I woulda left MJones in to make it even worse. When you poke the bear…a bear that never forgets, you get what you deserve.

  42. Lol at the running up the score talk.

    If you’re getting shredded by Brian Hoyer then you should say thank you to the Pats for not scoring 80.

  43. Belichick was no good before Brady and is no good after Brady. Mac Jones is gonna be Stafford/Matt Ryan type. Not top tier, but no bottom tier.
