The New York Jets faced an astonishingly challenging opponent when the Ryan Fitzpatrick football squad faced the New England Patriots last week. As the undefeated NFL team handed a 30-23 loss to the New York Jets, members of the Geno Smith crew admitted that they went to the football match not adequately prepared for the ability of Tom Brady to lead his group to victory regardless of the odds. In fact, the New York Jets disclosed that Tom Brady went in the game with the fierce determination of slaying the opponents - and the nobody from the Todd Bowles football squad prepared enough for the slaughter.

The New York Jets faced an astonishingly challenging opponent when the Ryan Fitzpatrick football squad faced the New England Patriots last week. As the undefeated NFL team handed a 30-23 loss to the New York Jets, members of the Geno Smith crew admitted that they went to the football match not adequately prepared for the ability of Tom Brady to lead his group to victory regardless of the odds. In fact, the New York Jets disclosed that Tom Brady went in the game with the fierce determination of slaying the opponents - and the nobody from the Todd Bowles football squad prepared enough for the slaughter.

"We tried to switch things up on Tom and show him different looks, but Tom is great," confessed New York Jets star Darrelle Revis, referring to the attempts of his team to curb the intensity and energy brought to the field by the New England Patriots star quarterback, Tom Brady, according to ESPN. The cornerback went on to share, "He [Tom Brady] suckered in the defense. That's what he did down the stretch." 

While this may seem like the New York Jets completely failed to control Tom Brady, fans and followers of Ryan Fitzpatrick and his football squad would not agree. The New York Jets managed to sack the New England Patriots star three times and even forced the quarterback to rush throws at certain parts of the football match. All these efforts, however, were in vain since the New England Patriots prepared very well for the game, thereby making Tom Brady virtually unstoppable during the NFL game.

The Nfl game of the New York Jets against the New England Patriots saw Ryan Fitzpatrick complete 22 of the 39 passes he made as well as pitched in 295 yards and two touchdowns. The New York Jets quarterback also contributed an additional 29 yards on the ground. Meanwhile, Erick Decker added 94 yards in six receptions at the receiving end. As for Chris Ivory, he had 17 attempts for 41 yards. Four catches and 67 yards were pitched in by Brandon Marshall.

Perhaps one of the serious concerns for the New York Jets was the seemingly hasty addition of punter Steve Weatherford. It could be recalled that the entry of Steve Weatherford to the New York Jets roster came mere days for the NFL team. As a result, the punter struggled to keep up with the pace of the NFL team - a consequence that clearly manifested itself during the match against the New England Patriots.

"It wasn't good, you know?" shared Steve Weatherford, who substituted for the injured Ryan Quigley during the football game of the New York Jets against the New England Patriots, according to the official website of the NFL team. The punter further revealed, "It's a bit disappointing, a tough situation to be in, coming in and not having any work with these guys. I wish I could've given more to the Jets today. I thought they played incredibly well. It was fun being back out there, but obviously I'm not very happy at all with the way I punted."
