- This was a close, hard fought game. If the Jets are going to play a lot of close games this year though, they can’t afford to burn timeouts like they did in this one. On one offensive drive in the 3rd quarter down 21-14, they burned two timeouts at 10:01 and 7:21, which left them with only one timeout for the remaining quarter and a half of the game.
- After allowing the Jets a quick 14-0 lead, the Patriots did a good job of adjusting on defense from the 2nd quarter on. Even though the defense allowed another 300-yard passer for the sixth consecutive game, one can see that Bill Belichick and his staff are becoming better acquainted with their defensive unit and the players are playing with more confidence.
