The Jets more or less matched the Pats today. They moved the ball as well or better, they generated some good pass rush, their defensive backs played out of their minds and they made some big plays on offense. What the Patriots proved today is that they can win when they're out of their element. How many talking heads have exclaimed that the Patriots can be beat because their defense is a step slow and they have no reliable running back? So much for that. Maroney was constantly able to generate 3-5 yards on a day where he got the most carries of his career. The defense buckled down in the red zone to come up with several big stops. The special teams made plays when the were needed. To sum it up, today the 2007 Patriots won a game like the 2003 Patriots used to. Tough, fundimental and physical. If the Baltimore and Indy games proved that the Patirots had the poise and the endurance to come back from a big deficit in adverse conditions, this game proved that the Patirots can win when their greatest strengths are neutralized.
