Jets Win! Jets Win! Jets Win!

Life is magical and filled with joy...

For this night, at least.  The Jets are only 4-3, true, but they beat the Patriots.  Any time we can take down Evil Little Bill and Tom Brady, it's a day for rejoicing.

Our rookie QB has been blowing hot and cold all season, as rookies will.  Today, aside from that one pick six, he was hot.  He looked really sharp, in truth.  And the Jets D just keeps getting better and better.  Whatever you say about Rex, he knows how to build a great D.

Even so, the Jets almost blew it, allowing Brady and the Pats to tie up the game in the final seconds and send it into overtime.  But in OT, the D came up big, and Geno and offense did just enough to get Nick Folk into range for the winning field goal... aided, I must admit, by a personal foul penalty that I am sure has all the Pats fans howling.  I'd be howling too if the teams had been reversed.

It was by no means the worst call of the afternoon, however.  That distinctiion has to be reserved for a totally bogus offensive pass interference call that negated a beautiful long TD bomb from Geno to Stephen Hill.  If that TD has counted, as it should have, there never would have been an overtime.  So I guess it all evened out in the end.

The Pats still lead the AFC East and will likely win it.  The Jets may not even make the playoffs.  As well as they played this week, they could be awful next week.  It has been that kind of up and down season.  But tonight at least gives Gang Green fans another whiff of hope.  Maybe Geno is for real.  That D sure is.

Looks like House Bolton's, I mean the Patriot's, grip on the AFC East is slowly fading away. I wouldn't be surprised if the Patriots once again run away with division, given how the Bills and Dolphins are hilariously pathetic, but in 5 years, I wouldn't be surprised to see a wide open AFC East race, with Tom Brady likely retired by then.

I don't see Geno Smith as the Azor Ahai for the Jets. He threw a pick-6 in Sunday's game and has 14 turnovers so far this season. But I don't think Geno Smith has to be amazing for the Jets to succeed. Just look at Joe Flacco.
