Pats win 13-0. Baltimore plays at the same time as the Jets.
One note before the game. After the pregame warmups, all the Jets ran into the lockerroom. Brett Favre met his wife Deanna, their two daughters and a few others for a group shot in the Jets endzone. Will that moment illicit happy memories? On to the game.
Miami won the toss and elected to defer. That’s right, a vote of no confidence for the Jets. And no score on the opening drive for the Jets. A series later, Brett Favre threw his 20th interception of the season.
The stadium didn’t show the Baltimore score until Jacksonville went up 7-3, and then it went on the Jumbotron to loud cheers. No score yet in the game, but the Jets just forced the Dolphins to punt. End of the first Q 0-0.
The good news first. Jets scored when Favre tossed it to Laveranues Coles on a crossing route, Coles ran it in for a 13-yard TD, but a botched snap foiled the PAT. 6-0 Jets. The bad news is the Ravens are up 10-7. No, that revised score has not flashed inside the stadium.
Miami WR Ted Ginn just caught a beautiful 27-yard pass deep in the end zone over Jets CB Dwight Lowery. The score (and successful PAT) make it 7-6 Miami with 2:18 left in the half. And the Ravens lead 17-7 over the Jags.
Even worse. Favre’s first throw from scrimmage was intercepted by Phillip Merling and returned for a TD. Favre tried to tackle and landed on his ailing shoulder, and Kellen Clemens is warming up on the side. It’s 14-6 Miami and Baltimore is up 24-7. The Jets do manage a FG before the half, 14-9 Miami.
Jets fans, don’t be alone this halftime. If you need to, call a friend, reach out to someone who cares. If you have some kind of prescription anti-anxiety medication, consider taking some.
Leon Washington opens up the 2nd half with a 10 yard scoring run and the Jets get the conversion with a pass to Cotchery. 17-14. That Washington. Still though, no Calvary coming out of Jacksonville.
Who said Chad Pennington couldn’t throw deep? He just hit Anthony Fasano in the back of the end zone for a 20-yard touchdown. And had a 44-yard pass before it that was all air. Miami is up 21-17.
Carpenter hits a 48-yard FG for Miami with 9:20 left in the fourth. 24-17 Miami. No change in the Baltimore score.
It’s a wrap. Season over, Favre (probably) over, Sutton, Franks, Baker, Nugent and Barton? Let the speculation begin…
