Weiss Preview: Painfully Close

Posted Oct 21, 2012

Sunday's 29-26 overtime loss to the New England Patriots is a tough one to swallow. The Jets had the lead with 1:37 left in regulation but couldn't stop Tom Brady from driving down the field for a game-tying field goal and, in overtime, couldn't stop him from setting up Stephen Gostkowski for the game-winning field goal.

Mark Sanchez threw for 328 yards (28-for-41) and he connected with eight different receivers. And he led a superb 92-yard drive late in the fourth quarter with the Jets down by 10. Despite this success, Sanchez still had a bad game. Check out my post later this morning for an explanation.
