Jets Shock Patriots In OT
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Rex Ryan was fired up. Bill Belichick was ticked off.
Everyone else was, properly, a bit confused.
After a newly instituted rule gave New England a penalty and Nick Folk another chance, he booted a forty two-yard subject objective with 5:07 left in additional time to give the New York Jets a 30-27 victory in opposition to the Patriots on Sunday.
“I was like, ‘You know what? It’s about time we got a break,'” Ryan stated, smiling. “That is really what I was pondering. It just worked out.”
People was extensive left on a 56-yarder, however the miss was negated when New England’s Chris Jones was known as for unsportsmanlike conduct on a 15-yard penalty that by no means had before been called in an NFL sport.
Referee Jerome Boger explained in a pool report that Jones was referred to as for pushing his teammate “into the opponents’ formation.” Umpire Tony Michalek threw his flag “nearly instantaneously as he observed the motion,” Boger said. “We simply enforced it as he referred to as it.”
Belichick disagreed with the applying of the rule.
“You may’t push in the second stage,” Belichick mentioned. “I did not suppose we did that.”
New York (four-3), given new life, ran the ball thrice to arrange Folk’s winner and ship the inexperienced towel-waving fans at MetLife Stadium right into a frenzy.
“It was something that we talked about probably in camp and stuff, and it simply skipped out of my thoughts,” Jones said. “It was my mistake and nobody else’s. I’ve simply bought to man as much as it and repair it next time.”
People thought the Patriots (5-2) might have been known as for 12 men on the sector. So did a couple of different Jets.
“I think I heard the whole stadium saying, ‘Please be on them,'” Ryan mentioned.
Then Folks received it.
“Folks Hero was the man he at all times is, kicking sport-winner for us,” Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson said. “It was an important win throughout the board.”
It also saved People’s consecutive kicks streak intact, giving him sixteen straight to start the season.
