The Jets went on an early 9 play, 80 yard march to take their first lead in 6 weeks, 7-0. The Patriots answered with a quick scoring drive of their own to tie the score at 7-7. The two teams then exchanged possessions before the Patriots went on a long field goal drive late in the half to take a 10-7 lead. The Jets immediately answered with a 41 yard strike to Quincy Enunwa followed by a Josh McCown interception that pinned the Patriots on their own two yard line. A Patriots three and out gave the Jets just enough time to set up a 55 yard field goal by Jason Myers, for a 10-10 halftime tie.
The Jets offense moved the ball better than at any time in the last month, but had little to show for it after the early touchdown drive. On defense the Jets were able to contain Tom Brady and the Patriots without actually shutting them down.
In all it has been a surprisingly competitive first half of football, setting up an interesting second half.
We go into the second half with the Jets and the Patriots tied at 10, and the Jets looking to best their AFC East rivals in the second half for their first win in five games.
Enjoy the second half everyone.
