The Patriots hit the Jets below the belt both figuratively and literally Sunday.
New England continued its dominance over Gang Green with a 15-10 win on a rainy day at MetLife Stadium that featured 16 total punts between the two teams.
It was the Patriots’ 15th consecutive victory over the Jets and it followed the script of many of the recent games with the Jets offense failing to move the ball.
The Jets were accustomed to former Patriots quarterback Tom Brady delivering shots that made them wince.
but Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner said Mac Jones hit him in the “private parts” after a play Sunday, adding injury to insult in this one.
The Patriots held the Jets to 60 yards in the first three quarters before the Jets broke through with one long drive in the fourth quarter.
Zach Wilson continues to provide no evidence he can be a quarterback to lead the Jets to a good season.
This naturally prompted jeers from the crowd and inquiries after the game about whether the Jets should sign a new quarterback.
The Jets will continue to use Wilson because, in the moment, "Zach... he is who gives us the best chance to win," Jets coach Robert Saleh said.
