- Six Million Ways and One Ways to Lose
“Six million ways to die, so I choose/ made it six million and one with your eyes closed.” (c) Reggie Noble
There’s six million ways to lose a football game and yesterday it seemed as Jets relied on almost all six million of those ways to lose to the Patriots.
Allowing a kickoff return for touchdown, terrible [...]
- Rex praises ‘really outstanding’ Sanchez
Jets coach Rex Ryan said embattled quarterback Mark Sanchez played “really outstanding in most of the game” on Sunday.
“(Mark) was accurate with the football. Our protection was good,” Ryan said.
Sanchez went 16-for-20 for 190 yards and a touchdown after halftime in the team’s 29-26 overtime loss to the New England Patriots.
But it was his game-ending lost fumble that will ultimately end up overshadowing what was an impressive performance overall.
- Did Pats get an extra second on clock?
It may have been the longest second of the season — literally.
Patriots’ KR Devin McCourty caught Nick Folk’s kickoff at the goal line with 2:06 remaining in the fourth quarter Sunday. A close examination of the TV replay shows that McCourty was at the 5-yard line when the game clock turned to 2:05. In fact, he had taken four full strides before the clock changed. In a case like that, the clock is supposed to start when the returner catches the ball.
- Stock watch: Risers and fallers
A look back at some of the winners and losers from Sunday’s game:
1. Jeremy Kerley. It’s hard to believe that he began training camp in Rex Ryan’s doghouse. Maybe Ryan should get ticked off at more players. Kerley, easily their top playmaker, delivered a career game, catching seven passes for 120 yards. If he didn’t slip on the third-down bootleg pass at the end of regulation … well, we’ll never know.
2. Nick Folk.

FOXBOROUGH, MASS. — With a blue chip road victory in their sights after scoring 13 unanswered fourth quarter points against the New England Patriots, the Jets lost sight of who they were as they let the win — and the division lead — slip away in overtime.
The result was something similar to witnessing someone gasping [...]

- Notebook: Rex less than thrilled with refs
FOXBOROUGH, MASS. — Jets head coach Rex Ryan didn’t outright criticize the referees following Sunday’s 29-26 overtime loss to the Patriots, but he made it quite clear he wasn’t pleased.
When asked after the game for his thoughts on the referees’ job in monitoring the Patriots up-tempo offense, the Jets coach showed his disdain for some of the calls.
“I think the officiating crew did a great job with that,” Ryan said.
One critical call in the game came in overtime when defensive back Kyle Wilson was flagged for pass interference while breaking up a ball intended for Aaron Hernandez.
- Up, down, up for Sanchez
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The Jets’ quarterback controversy is over. For now, anyway.
Facing one of the league’s worst pass defenses, Mark Sanchez passed for a season-high 328 yards — his highest total in more than a year — in Sunday’s 29-26 overtime loss to the Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
Offensive coordinator Tony Sparano actually loosened the reins on Sanchez, allowing him to attack the Patriots’ rookie-laden secondary. He threw 41 times, completing 28 with one touchdown and one interception.
- Quick Hits: Jets Lose 29-26 to Patriots in Overtime
The Jets obviously want me to die young. Today was proof. When they were shout out AT HOME by the 49ers a few weeks ago, I wasn’t even sad. I felt nothing. This one? This one hurts. The Jets showed a lot of fight in their 29-26 overtime loss to the Patriots, but ultimately, they came up [...]

The Jets lost an overtime heartbreaker to the New England Patriots 29-26 in Foxborough today, falling to 2-1 in division play and 3-4 overall. This was a team loss like Jets fans can’t believe. After the defense stopped the Patriots opening drive, and the Jets offense came out and scored a touchdown, the special teams [...]
- Hill drops chance to change game
FOXBOROUGH, MASS. — When Nick Folk tied the game late in Sunday’s eventual 29-26 overtime loss to the Patriots, Jets wide receiver Stephen Hill could not have been more elated as he watched from the sidelines. Just moments before, the rookie receiver had dropped a first down chance that potentially could have resulted in a touchdown drive for the team.
“Just a crucial drop I should have caught,” Hill said.
The rookie receiver made the cardinal mistake of taking his eye of the ball and turning to move with it before catching the pigskin.
- Shonn Greene on head injury: ‘I’m good’
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Jets running back Shonn Greene left Sunday’s game with a head injury and went to the locker room for evaluation, but returned to finish out the 29-26 overtime loss to the Patriots. Green went to the locker room as the fourth quarter drew to a close, but was back on the field in overtime.
“I’m good,” Greene said repeatedly after the defeat.
Greene appeared to be shaken up on a short pass over the middle while the Jets trailed 23-13 in the fourth quarter.
- Special teams giveth and taketh
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — The Jets’ special teams unit made its mark on Sunday’s game.
For better and for worse.
In Sunday’s 29-26 overtime loss, the Jets allowed a 104-yard kickoff return by Devin McCourty that tied the score in the first quarter, but bounced back to force and recover a critical fumble in the fourth quarter that led to a field goal, which put the Jets up 26-23 in the final two minutes. New England ultimately rallied to send the game to overtime and win it.
