Jets vs Patriots Second Half Thread

NFL: New England Patriots at New York Jets Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

The first half of the New York Jets game against the New England Patriots is in the books, and the Jets are leading the Patriots 10 - 6.

In the 1st quarter the two teams exchanged three and outs before the Jets drew first blood. A long drive highlighted by a 54 yard Zach Wilson to Garrett Wilson bomb set up a short Jets field goal and an early 3 - 0 Jets lead. The Patriots answered with a long field goal drive of their own to close out the quarter and tie the score at 3 - 3.

The Jets came right back with a 75 yard touchdown drive to open the 2nd quarter, with most of the damage coming through the air. The drive culminated in a Zach Wilson touchdown pass to Tyler Conklin for a 10 - 3 Jets lead.

The Patriots put together an impressive drive down to the Jets 21 yard line late in the half, but they failed on a 4th and 1 play and turned the ball over on downs.

A wild final two minutes of the half followed. Zach Wilson threw a terrible interception to give the Patriots the ball back in Jets territory. Mac Jones then endeavored to return the favor, throwing an apparent pick 6 to Michael Carter II, only to have the play negated by a John Franklin-Myers roughing the passer penalty. The Patriots eventually settled for a 40 yard field goal to bring the score to Jets 10, Patriots 6 as the half expired.

The Jets go into the locker room with a four point lead that should have been much more.

Enjoy the second half everyone.
