This is the full strength of the jets.
How did you like the look, Jets fans?
You know that your start quarterback for the first time plays his second game in a row season and with your best defensive player for the first time since week 1 back in the lineup?
Were there 33-0 Patriots you expected at the MetLife Stadium on Monday night, a week less than what looked like inspiring, seasonal savings? Mad victory over the cowboys?
Saving in the season?
This victory against Dallas now seems to be a mere interruption of what seems to be developing in a season of incompetence – a burp in the midst of a long supper.
The Jets had not been as strong since the third quarter of the season opener as on Monday night, just before linebacker CJ Mosley dropped out of the game over a groin injury and quarterback Sam Darnold contracted mononucleosis.
"You have high expectations when you get your best players back," said defender Steve McLendon.
"This is not something we expected. We did not expect to lose that way, "linebacker Jordan Jenkins said.
Darnold played his second game since returning from his compulsory break in three games and played more like Luke Falk, the third striker who played in his game, and is no longer in the team, being the # 3 overall in the draft 201
A week later it was no longer possible to increase the game of all around him against the cowboys. Darnold threw four interceptions and lost a fumble. It was his worst game as a pro, possibly his worst on every level.
After throwing the second of his four picks in the second quarter at Patriots Safety Duron Harmon – Darnold, who became mic from ESPN Man heard the game mumble, "I see ghosts."
He finished 11 of 32 for 86 yards, the four interceptions and a rating of 3.6 (no, that's not a misprint).
How damned was this performance? The Jets, with Falk as quarterback, were more competitive against the Patriots in New England three weeks ago, losing 30-14.
Mosley, quarterback of the Jets defense, made no impact on Monday night, apparently still not fully recovering from his groin injury.
So much for the full strength.
"It definitely hurts, because when we played against the Patriots for the first time, we did not have these key components and we thought the main reason we lost so badly," said defender Leonard Williams. "After we got those guys back, had a full squad and won a big win against the cowboys last week, we thought we could add some momentum to the game.
" We played at home on the big stage, we came after a big win, we had Sam and CJ back and at the end of the game were only Patriots fans in the stadium and we had no points on the board. It was bad. "
Security Jamal Adams, who was furious after the game, used the word" embarrassing "several times in his brief conversation with reporters.
The Patriots pay for inferior teams for their mistakes, the jets awarded their AFC East Fathers were always inferior, were so willing that evening that they had the feeling of having the notorious "Buttfumble" game of 2012 – the destruction of the jets by 49:19 New England in front of a Thanksgiving-night citizen TV audience
The only things missing on Monday night were Mark Sanchez's head and Brandon Moore's butt.
We would count how the Patriots let the jets pay for every mistake, but we do not have enough time.
After the Jets won and postponed the coin and New England scored the first ball, the Patriots rode 78 yards in 8:47 in 16 games to secure a 7-0 lead in a 3-yard run by Sony Michel to achieve. the first of his three hurried TDs. The ride looked like she could have gone to Foxborough as far as I-95, without the Jets defense stopping her.
In the Jets second offensive, Darnold threw an interception at Patriots Safety Devin McCourty. Four games later, the Patriots went after a 34-yard field goal 10-0 in the lead.
"I did not expect that at all," said Jets coach Adam Gases. "That was brutal. We did not do anything right. We move and they go nine minutes. [and then] We throw a pickaxe. Not really an ideal start. Nothing went prematurely and we could not regroup. It was just one bad thing after the other. We could not get out of the way.
The Jaguars in Jacksonville are next in six days for the jets. The jags have to lick their collective chops.
"If you erase the tape like this, you will see it again," Gases said. "You'll see it until you stop."
