After the Jets’ surprising 24-22 win over the Cowboys in quarterback Sam Darnold’s return last week caused many to bury Dallas, New York has a chance to prove that result was its own doing with a strong showing Monday night against the Patriots.
In Week 3, New England dominated the Jets, opening up a 30-0 lead en route to a 30-14 win. Darnold was out with mononucleosis for that loss and two others before beating the Cowboys in his first start since Week 1, providing a glimmer of hope that the Jets can turn their season around.
The Patriots, though, have looked every bit the juggernaut they were expected to be, rolling to a 6-0 start with an average victory margin of nearly 24 points.
So, even though New York is at home for the rematch with New England, simply avoiding a blowout could be seen as an impressive performance from coach Adam Gase’s team.
