Jets Shock Pats!

January 17, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

The New York Jets talked all week.

On Sunday they backed it up beating  Tom Brady and the Patriots.  28-21. The Jets go to Pittsburgh to face the Steelers in the AFC Championship game next Sunday at 6:30 pm

In a game that saw New England  try to confuse the Jets in the early stages  with tweaks to offensive sets, Rex Ryan’s’ defense responded by pummeling  Brady, with 5 sacks, and an onslaught  of hits,  rushes, swats.

A momentum changing interception by the Jets David Harris of Brady during the Pats first drive  gave the Jets a chance to exhale, and from there it was their defense dominating the Patriots for the rest of the game.

It was Brady’s first interception since Week Six.

Even though the Pats dodge a bullet with the Jets can't convert on the field goal, Shaun Ellis makes life terrible for Tom Brady, sacking him in the first quarter ...

They Jets threw him around like a rag doll circa the 2007 Super Bowl champs New York Giants and like game in 2007 Brady was noticeably frustrated throughout the rest of  game.

Defensive Linemen David Pryce said, “He’s not a running quarterback so he knows he’s going to get hit. And he got hit plenty.”

Opposite Brady, Jets QB  Marc Sanchez operated coolly, calmly, with dink and dump-off approach.

Sanchez’s three touch down passes a 7- yarder to Ladainian Tomlinson, a 15-yarder to wide receiver Braylon Edwards, and a Lynn Swannesque acrobatic catch by Santonio Holmes for 7-yards in the corner of the end zone for a 21-11 lead in the first two minutes of the 4th quarter.

Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes catches a TD pass in the fourth quarter.

Holmes, a Super Bowl MVP with the Steelers gets to go back to Pittsburgh, looking for a chance to get  his second ring.

“We can’t let up right now,” Sanchez told the New York Daily News, “We’ve got to move on.”

“Now on to Round 3 of mission impossible,”  Ryan said.

Manning, then  Brady, and now Roethlisberger.  Quarterback’s of the  last three AFC Champs.

Mission impossible indeed.
