Best Of Social Media: Week 7 Jets vs PatriotsDavid Butler II-USA TODAY Sports

The New England Patriots looked to get a much-needed win in week seven against a struggling Jets team at Gillette Stadium.

Offensively, the Jets entered Sunday scoring a league-low 13.4 average points per game under first-year quarterback Zach Wilson. Back in week two, the Patriots won their first game of the year in blowout fashion over the Jets at MefLife Stadium in New Jersey by a 25-6 score.

Could the Patriots duplicate their success against their division rivals? Take a look back at the game through all the best postings shared across social media as they unfolded below.


In the first quarter, the Patriots offense unleashed some trickery when wide receiver Nelson Agholor hauled in a 25-yard touchdown pass from Kendrick Bourne for the early lead.

Two drives later, running back Damien Harris extended the Patriots lead to 14.

Back in action for the first time after two healthy scratches, running back J.J. Taylor showed off the ability that dazzled many during training camp.

After one quarter of play, kicker Nick Folk hit a career milestone to open the second, nailing a 39-yard attempt for his 300th made field goal.

Teammate and punter Jake Dailey shared this congratulatory message over Instagram following the game.

Midway through the second, the Jets finally got on the scoreboard thanks to a Corey Davis touchdown reception from quarterback Mike White, who replaced Zach Wilson following a hit by Matthew Judon leaving him with a right knee injury.

Leading 17-7 with seven minutes to go in the second, Mac Jones showed off his running ability on a third long. He was predictably pumped up after getting the first down.

The play helped setup a Brandon Bolden 15 yard touchdown pass from Mac Jones to extend the Patriots lead to 24-7.

With the clock winding down on the first half, Hunter Henry celebrated “National Tight Ends Day” the right way by hauling in yet another touchdown pass to put the Patriots up 31-7 just before halftime.

At halftime, the Patriots held a special ceremony honoring its newest inductees to the team Hall of Fame.

To open the second half, the Jets found the end zone for the second and final time of the game when Elijah Moore scored from 19 yards out, a two-point conversion attempt failed. The score was now 31-13 still very much in favor of New England.

A drive later Nick Folk added his second field goal of the game, this time from 50 yards (a first this season).

Meanwhile on defense, the Patriots secondary continued to pick apart Jets backup quarterback Matt White and the rout was on.


In the fourth quarter, the Patriots put the game well out of reach as Damien Harris scored for the second time and J.J. Taylor added two touchdowns of his own. Mac Jones meanwhile went over 300 yards passing for the first time in his career as the Patriots went on to win in dominating fashion by a final score of 54-13 to get back within a game of .500 at 3-4.

The victory marked the Patriots 12th straight win over the Jets and their first win at home this season, they’ll look to put together their first winning streak of the year when they travel to Los Angeles to take on Justin Herbert and the Chargers next Sunday.
