I took a catnap in the 4th quarter when the Jets had the ball. I woke up and they still had the ball in the same spot and I was unsure if I had taken a nap. The Jets did not get beyond the 36 in Q4.

Nick Folk is the Mac Jones of kickers. Give him perfect conditions (under 50 and no wind) and he can be nearly perfect, as consistently as just about anyone. Increase the difficulty just a little bit (with wind or distance), and you wonder why he's on the field at all.

Judon, Dugger, Marcus Jones.

Game ball to Marcus Jones. Just glad this time it happened to the Jets and not SMU. Why did we kick off to him again?

Game ball to Mac, Harris, and Rham on offense.
Edit: I thought Mac had a decent game today but I might be in the minority here.

The entire defense gets a game ball. Hard to single out guys when virtually everyone made impact plays!

Marcus Jones, obviously.
What a fucking game for the defense. Judon is just incredible.
Offense really doesn't deserve any in a game they scored three points, but mini game balls for Harris and Stevenson.

Weird game for Mac. I thought he cleaned a lot up today, but a lot of those sacks were ones a better QB wouldn't have taken. Not a game ball, but a small step in the right direction.

The Jets had two yards of offense in the second half. This defense is Super Bowl level. Unfortunately the offense is not, but they are going to be a pesky team down the stretch.

Throw a dart 3 times and pick 3 guys on D. The entire unit was monstrous today. I loved the way Dugger played. He was Roy Kent.

Agreed – Mac has gone from being overly careless with the ball before he got hurt to overly cautious since he’s come back. But given the conditions and how good the Jets defense is it made sense.

Who here thought Jonnu would have scored a TD on the play he fumbled?

That plus two missed FGs… that’s some points left out there for sure.

But game ball to Marcus and Judon for sure.

The defense was unbelievable today against Zach Wilson and against the Colts with Ehlinger.

Those two QBs are legitimately awful. The defense is phenomenal but they were also playing against really bad offenses.

They would have had negative yards had that pass "reception" been called correctly

The DL is playing with a swagger. The linebackers were great. And great plays by everyone: Uche, Jennings, Mack Wilson, McMillan,...

This is elite message board sarcasm. I love it.

I don't think this is fair. In 50 games as a Ptriot today might be the only bad game he has had.

1. Marcus Jones
2. Judon
3. The rest of the defense

I’m saying this independently of Mac (truly).

It is fun to think about the little bit of noise this squad could make come playoff time if they had average quarterback play. A Ryan Tannehill type of guy. Nothing flashy, but good for a handful of trips to the red zone and 60 minutes of smart situational football.

Anyways, game ball to the defense and Marcus.

I have not heard a lot of good things about Matt Tannehill. That said, he's probably better than Mac.

I get the sense that you have lost faith that Mac Jones is good enough to QB this team going forward. Its subtle but its a feeling I get...

I went back and re-read that and realized getting up at 3:45am in Copenhagen and flying back home has caught up with me. :)

Anybody have a link of those jets guys that watch together and live stream the game? I think I’d enjoy watching their misery during the PR
