The New England Patriots beat the New York Jets and it was amazing. The team looked really good on the field, but head coach Bill Belichick believes there’s a lot of room for improvement. Patriots players threw an incredible locker room celebration. I mean… They know how to celebrate their wins!
This is a good sign for us all. The Patriots are winning games and this win goes in the face of pretty much every doubter out there. A lot of analysts criticized the Patriots head coach for putting a rookie at center. We all know that Belichick made a good decision.
Mac Jones did a good job in the preseason and he was great in Weeks 1 and 2. The first-rounder completed his initial seven passes in Sunday’s game. Jones finished the game 22-of-30 for 186 yards with zero touchdowns and interceptions.
Zach Wilson was 19-of-33 for 210 yards and four interceptions in the game. Compare this to Jones’ performance. Belichick has a better option, right?
Patriots players deserved this locker room celebration
Damien Harris had another incredible performance. This was the best solution to the fumble he had in the season opener against the Miami Dolphins. Harris’ fumble came like a shock, but he repaired the damage last night. The running back got the opening handoff against the Jets. He had 16 for 62 yards and went through seven missed tackles for a touchdown of 26 in the third.
Jonnu Smith and Hunter Henry combined for 73 yards in the first game they played together. In the second, these two combined for 70.
Smith caught four passes for 28 yards. Henry saw four targets and caught two for 42 yards.
The Patriots trusted Nick Folk and he died a team record held by Stephen Gostkowski. Folk spent seven years with the Jets, and now he won a game against them. Interesting, right?
The Patriots won’t stop here and they will fight even more to win more games this season. They are on a good way to make the playoffs this season. That’s the ideal scenario, right?
