Analyzing the disappointment of Patriots vs Jets
By Richard Rodgers
On the most recent episode of new podcast “Talking New York Jets and Giants”, co-hosts Richard Rodgers and Justin Witmondt discuss and analyze the New York Jets’ heart breaking loss to Tom Brady and the New England Patriots.
It was another tough loss at MetLife Stadium for the New York Jets this past Sunday. The team got off to a scorching start in the first quarter with a 10-0 lead. As he usually does though, Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady came back from the deficit with a vengeance. In the late stages of the fourth quarter, he led his offense down the field for a game winning drive.

The Jets gave Patriots’ head coach Bill Belichick along with Brady and company all that they could handle as usual. An all too streaky offense along with a defense that ended up breaking down in the fourth quarter doomed New York them on their way to the 17-22 loss.
For their Week 12 recap episode of Talking Jets and Giants, Richard and Justin went through their normal format to thoroughly analyze the game. This entails them going through the negatives and positives (in that order) out of each position group on the team.
Among the most notable factors from the game, they discuss the lack of a running game, the poor play from the cornerbacks, and the continuously disappointing special teams unit. The Jets almost beat the Patriots but again, fell short to a better team.
