Jets @ Pats

Recommended Posts





The Jets have lost nine straight regular-season games at Gillette Stadium, the longest road losing streak against any opponent in franchise history. Overall, the Patriots are 13-2 (.867) against the Jets since 2011, the best record by any team against any divisional opponent.

New York's overtime loss to the Packers last week dropped the Jets to 2-6 (.250) in one-possession games this season, tied with Jacksonville for the worst such record in the NFL. That would be the Jets' worst record in one-possession games since 1996 (0-7).

With last week's win over Buffalo, New England clinched its 10th straight division title, extending its own NFL record, and reached 10 wins for the 16th straight season, tying the 1983-98 49ers for the longest streak all-time.

Tom Brady (41 years, 149 days) and Sam Darnold (21 years, 208 days) are separated by 19 years and 306 days, the largest differential between two starting quarterbacks in NFL history. Rookie quarterbacks are 0-10 on the road against the Patriots under Bill Belichick.

Last week, Darnold became the fifth quarterback in franchise history to post 340+ passing yards, 3+ TD passes and zero interceptions in a game, joining Al Dorow, Joe Namath, Ken O'Brien and Geno Smith. Darnold was the only one of those five to do so in a loss.

Tom Brady is 20 completions away from becoming the fourth player with 6000 career completions. Brady also needs nine completions to reach 700 in his career against the Jets; the only players with 700+ against any opponent are Favre vs. Detroit (775) and Chicago (745) and Brees against the Falcons (722).
