Rich Cimini of ESPN New York has some stats from Sunday Night’s New York Jets loss to the New England Patriots that may alarm you.
Patriots head coach Bill Belichick started two undrafted rookies, S Sterling Moore and LB Jeff Tarpinian, who, prior to the game, had never played a single snap in the NFL before. Moore never even played Safety before.
