Thanksgiving came early for NFL fans watching Patriots-Jets.
New England and New York each scored three points heading into the final 30 seconds of the game. The game felt like a throwback in the worst way possible. The Jets accumulated two total yards in the second half, and the Patriots only averaged five yards per play.
Overtime felt inevitable, but rookie Marcus Jones took a Braden Mann punt 84 yards to the house. The touchdown left five seconds on the clock, but Zach Wilson didn’t return to the field, much to the delight and thanks of NFL fans.
The 10-3 win for the Patriots puts them in position to make a run for an AFC wild card spot, and New England’s 6-4 record after Week 11 puts it at third in the AFC East.
The Patriots will have to hope their offense can dramatically improve in a short week when they take on the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving Day.
