It looked like the Jets might do the unthinkable and win a game Monday night, but they blew it, falling 30-27 to the Patriots at MetLife Stadium.
Former Jets kicker Nick Folk made a 51-yard field goal as time expired to give the Patriots the win and hand a Jets a heartbreaking loss. The kick was set up by a 20-yard pass from Patriots quarterback Cam Newton to receiver Jakobi Meyers, who had 12 catches for 169 yards.
The Jets blew a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead thanks to a Joe Flacco interception, a defense that could not stop the Patriots late when it needed to and the offense going three-and-out when it got the ball with less than two minutes left.
“That was a tough loss right there,” wide receiver Jamison Crowder said. “That was a game that we should have won.”
The Jets fell to 0-9 for the first time in franchise history. It is the first time the Jets have had a nine-game losing streak during one season. It is the second-longest losing streak in team history. The Jets lost 12 straight games spanning the 1995 and ’96 seasons. The Jets’ losing streak against the Patriots is now nine games.
