In the first half it was all Patriots. The Jets offense was nonexistent, as is customary in the first half. Meanwhile the Jets defense failed to show up for the game. The Patriots scored on every possession of the first half to rack up 31 points at halftime. The Jets defense put up only token resistance, allowing big play after big play to a Patriots offense not known for the big play. It was an embarrassing first half to say the least for the Green and White. To rub salt into the Jets’ wounds, Zach Wilson injured his knee and the Jets offense was left to fend for itself as best it could with Mike White at the helm. That wasn’t nearly good enough. The Jets entered halftime with the game all but over at 31 - 7, Patriots.
The second half was little more than extended garbage time. The Patriots ended up scoring on 9 out of their 10 drives of the game prior to going to victory formation on their final possession.
This was a humiliating game for the Jets. They were dominated in every aspect of the game. After a bye week in which the Jets tried to fix their numerous offensive woes, the team looked worse than ever.
With the loss the Jets go to 1-5 on the year.
