New York Jets Believe They Can ‘Shock’ the Patriots Tonight
They haven't won the AFC East title since Kelly Clarkson won American Idol, and their current quarterback was five.
Tonight, the undefeated new England Patriots travel to MetLife Stadium, facing a team who have only won a single game this season. However, the New York Jets enter the game confident.
For one, they are getting healthier. When quarterback Sam Darnold returned last week, they sent the Dallas Cowboys to their third straight loss. This spark sent a wave of optimism through the locker room.
Darnold told Boston.com “It’s up to us how much we execute or how well we go out there and play. It’s really up to us how many points we score. If we get outside of ourselves, and try to take down Tom Brady, take down (Bill) Belichick, those are all legit things. But for us, it’s really just about focusing on what we need to do and how we need to execute.”
As far as going up against the Patriots dynasty?
Jets' running back Le’Veon Bell told Boston.com: " I think we have a really great opportunity to shock the world in a sense.”
