    Jets One

    This is a game I've been looking forward too. I expect the Pats to win, but, at the same time, I would not be shocked if the Jets did. It is a big game, though, since they're just one back, and it is a division game.

    We have a lot of notable inactives. Keshawn Martin, Dion Lewis, Jabbal Sheard, Shaq Mason, Brandon Bolden, and Marcus Cannon are all down. I wonder a little about having some of them sit with minor injuries because we play Thursday. But, it also has lineup implications. With Lewis and Bolden down, that means James White will be the backup to Blount. With Martin down, it means Dobson will play. LaFell is also back, but I expect him to be on a snap count. It might also lead to a lot of 3 TE sets and Blount power running. It definately makes things interesting.

    The Jets have Bilaal Powell down, and with Ridley still on PUP, that makes them have less backfield depth. Ryan Quigley, the punter is also down.

    Bill Vinovich is the ref, Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts on the call. The weather will be high 50s to low 60s with a 30 percent chance of rain.

    Go Pats!

    We have just 18 guys suited up on offense. We're banged up. The short week, then the mini bye, may be a bit of a blessing. Especially if we can win both. With TE being the most healthy skill position, I'm thinking we'll see a lot of 3 TE today.

    On the Jets side, they signed Steve Weatherford, the ex-Giant. They gave him his jersey on the field during warmups. That's a pretty good indication he hasn't had time to practice with them. Could we see a punt team snafu or two?

    Jets P1: Start at the 20. Two play drive! After Collins stops Ivory for a loss of 4, Chandler strips Fitz, and Hightower recovers the fumble.

    Pats P1: Start at the Jets 19. Bad drive. We miss Jules under pressure, find Gronk for 5, then Richardson with a sack. No running plays called. We get the FG. 3-0 Pats. 12:48 left in the first.

    I am concerned with playcalling here. We went with heavy spread calls all three plays and the Jets got pressure. But, we were in chipshot range. Run at least one time with Blount or White.

    Jets P2: Start at the 20. This was a pretty strange drive. It was also a successful drive for the Jets. It started with a rollout pass to Cumberland for 16. But, we stopped Stacy at the line and Nink batted down a pass to bring up 3rd and 10. The Jets converted on a 24 yard pass to Decker. Fitz when deep to Decker and missed, then Nink batted down another pass. On 3rd and 10, they go back to Decker for 12. Stacy gets 3, then Marshall gets a nice 13 yard catch. Fizt threw it away under pressure, then ran for 3. We were called for hands to the face on Coleman, which gave them first and goal at the 5. Stacy ran for three on first. On second, Coleman defended a pass, and on 3rd, Chung did the same. They took the FG. 3-3. 7:30 left.

    Ivory did not play on the drive. He was on the bike, but there is no injury report on him at this point.

    Pats P2: Start at the 20. 5 plays and a punt. All passes. All decent passes, but nice tackling and a drop by White limited us.

    Jets P3: Start at the 17. The Jets have another impressive drive and end the quarter. They start on the ground. Ivory gets 3, and Fitz gets 11. Nink then knocks down his third pass of the game. On the next play, Hicks has a clean sack, but Fitz makes him miss and finds Bohannon for 17. After Ivory gets 6 on two carries, we fail on 3rd and let Decker pick up 17. Then Fizt misses Owasu, Ivory gets nothing, and Kerley gets 11 on 3rd and 10 to end the quarter.

    The Jets won the first quarter.

    They push it. Three runs give them a first and goal at the one. After a false start, they get the 6 yard TD to Kerley. 10-3 Jets. 12:30 in the half.

    We need to get off the field on third.

    Pats P3: Start at the 39. A return to the 24, and a low block call on the Jets adds 15 more. But we three and out. 3 more passes.

    Why aren't we running? They respect it. The first down play on this drive was playaction off a fake to Blount. They bit, and if Pryor doesn't make a great play on the ball, we have Gronk for at least 15. We've made ourselves one dimensional.

    Jets P4: Start at the 8. 3 and out.

    Pats P4: Start at the Jets 47. We answer, but it was hard work! On first down, LaFell beats Revis and drops the pass. It would have been a 22 yard gain. Blount gets 3, and it's 3rd and 7. But Danny makes a play to get the first, and then makes a second catch, for 24. That put us at the 13. Wilkerson knocks a pass down, and then White is missed. On 3rd and 10, under pressure, Brady runs for 11! First and goal at the 2. White gets 1 (Pryor saved the TD). Back to back plays to Gronk are incomplete, and then stopped about an inch from the goal On 4th, Brady keeps and gets the TD. 10-10. 6:23 in the half.

    Jets P5: Start at the 20. 3 and out. We had to burn a challenge because of a bad spot on 3rd down.

    Ivory has a hamstring injury. We do not know how bad.

    Pats P5: Start at the 41. Jules had a nice return. Another strange drive. It starts with Lafell's third drop of the game. But then the TE's come into play. Williams gets 4, then Gronk gets 26. We find Jules for 8, but that comes back on holding on Flemine. After a 1st and 20 miss to Jules, we find LaFell for 19! It's ruled a first down, challenged by the Jets, and we get 3rd and 1. Rather than run the ball, we try playaction. Pryor gets the sack and we get a 46 yard FG. 13-10 Pats. 2:00 to go.

    Jets P6: Start at the 19. Three and out. We end the drive with a sack by Collins. We call a timeout to make them punt.

    Buster Skirne has gone to the locker room with a shoulder injury.

    Pats P6: Start at the 46. Wasted short drive. Gronk for 8, then we take timeout 2. LaFell with drop #4. With 3 seconds left, we try a hail mary and Richardson gets a sack.

    Observations:

    Bill Vinovich's crew blew two spots within of six plays. Each of the teams has just one challenge left because of that. And both time, they were not even close.

    Where is the running game? Josh McDaniels needs to give the ball to Blount!!

    LaFell has four drops in five targets! Maybe give Dobson some looks? Or throw to White? Or run the ball!!!

    But, all told, we are in the lead with the offense having slept through the first half. If Ivory is hurt, and if Skrine is out, that helps a lot.

    Pats P7: Start at the 29. Well, we become the first team to score on the Jets in the 3rd quarter this season. But it's only three. We start the drive with Gronk behind the defense, but the ball is just overthrown. Then we find White for 8, and Chandler for 25. Pryor is hurt on the play. Blount gets 1, then Brady finds Dobson (12) and Chandler (8). After we miss Jules, White coverts the thrid down play with a 10 yard catch. That gave us first and goal at the 6. But, Brady rushes a throw and misses Gronk, overthrows Dobson, and Jules drops a TD. We get the FG. 16-10 Pats. 11:10 left in the third.

    We have 9 dropped passes today.

    Jets P7: Start at the 20. More of the same for our defense. It starts with an Ivory run for 3. Nink bats down his fourth pass, and then we let Fizt find Smith for 7 on 3rd and 7. Stacy gets two carries for 4, and then Fitz hits Marshall for 13 on 3rd and 6. Ivry gets 3, Fitz finds Kerley for 10, then Ivoet gets 3. On 2nd and 7, Fitz runs for 3, but the play comes back on offsetting fouls. He misses Decker, then on 3rd and 7, finds Decker for 24. Ivory gets 4, then Ivory catches a 9 yard TD pass. 17-16 Jets. 4:07 left in the third.

    Pats P8: Start at the 22. 4 plays and a punt. LaFell drops his fifth pass.

    10 drops now. Where are the running plays??

    Jets P8: Start at the 17. They end the third impressively. Ivory has two carries for 11, then Marshall has a 28 yard catch.

    The fourth starts with a 3 yard run by Fitz. It's negated by holding on Hightower. That gives them two more yards and a first down. After another 3 yard Ivory run, Fitz goes to Decker. Decker slams into Butler, and Butler is called for DPI. 18 yard pickup. Fitz goes to the air to Ivory for 3, Decker (incomplete), and then Marshall drops a TD. They take the FG. 20-16. 12:50 left.

    Pats P9: Start at the 20. Skrine is back. We stick with the passing game. It starts with plays to Danny (8) and Jules (5). We give it to Blount and he loses 7. After Brady sails one over Danny's head, we have 3rd and 17. Then we get it going. Jules for 27. Gronk for 11, 23, and 2. That got us to the 10. Brady ran for 2 on 2nd and 8, and Richardson was hurt. The next play we finish the drive. Danny with an 8 yard TD! 23-20 Pats! 7:16 left.

    Jets P9: Start at the 30. 4 plays and a punt. 5:32 left.

    C'mon offense. Keep the ball the rest of the game.

    Pats P10: Start at the 32. Richardson back in. We stay in the air. Brady goes to Gronk (4), Dobson (7), Danny (with a great catch for 14), the Jules for 8. We hand White the ball and gets 3 and the first down. However, we then go to Williams and the ball is knocked out, then LaFell has drop #6. On 3rd and 10, though, Danny comes up big again. A catch for 11, the first down, and the two minute warning.

    We finish it after the warning. We find Danny for 7, and after the Jets do not call time, they bring the house. Gronk is alone, and it's a 15 yard TD. 30-20 Pats! 1:13 left.

    We had no running game, and 11 drops. And have a 10 point lead with just over a minute to play.

    Jets P10: Start at the 20. The Jets have to go to the air, down 10. Fitz goes to Marshall, but the ball is droped. Then they find Owasu for 21. They take timeout #1 with 1:00 left. Fitz goes back to Marshall who gets 12. Mangold is hurt on the play, and that costs the Jets TO #2 with :54 left. Fitz finds Owusu for 5, and then Stacy for 12. They take TO #3 with 23 seconds left. They decide to try for the FG now. It's a 50 yard try and they false start!!!

    That makes it a 55 yard FG, but they stick with the plan. He makes it! Wow! 30-23. 18 second left. Onsides kick time. We let them line up, see the way they do, then BB calls timeout.

    Jets recover at the Pats 48. 15 seconds left.

    Jets P11: Start at the Pats 48. They had a chance and they blow it! On first down, they find Decker for 12 in the middle of the field. They snap the ball with 1 second left, but Marshall was not set! That's a false start and a ten second run off!

    Game!!!!

    Great game. We played sloppy, a lot of the time, and still won!

    Go Pats!
