In the Jets’ final game of the 2020 season, on a cold and cloudy day in Foxborough, Massachusetts, the New York Jets lost to the New England Patriots, 28 - 14.

The game opened with a long touchdown drive by the Patriots against only token resistance by the Jets defense.

From there the game bogged down in a series of drives going nowhere by both teams. The Jets finally ended the scoring drought with a touchdown pass by Sam Darnold to Chris Herndon late in the first half to tie the score at 7 - 7.

The Jets opened the second half with a touchdown drive highlighted by a long 50+ yard reception by Breshad Perriman on a crossing pattern catch and run. The score was Jets 14, Patriots 7 and things were looking good. From there it was all Patriots.

Cam Newton threw two touchdown passes and caught one on a wide receiver option. Sam Darnold threw two interceptions, including a costly one in the endzone, throttling a long Jets drive and effectively ending the game. The Patriots ran out the clock from there as the Jets ended one of the worst seasons in franchise history with an ugly loss in Foxborough.

With the loss the 2-14 Jets close the season on a sour note as they await the inevitable firing of head coach Adam Gase and the start of a new Jets era.
