It was the biggest Christmas gift that Bill Belichick and the New England Patriots could give the New York Jets. After tying the game at twenty a piece in regulation, it was on to the coin flip in overtime and after winning the toss Matthew Slatter informed the referee that the Patriots will kick off to the Jets.
From the orders of head coach Belichick, Slatter was told to kick the ball to the Jets to start the overtime period and later had a confused look on his face and it was too late to change the call. After a 2yd run by Ivory to start the overtime, Ryan Fitzpatrick finds Quincey Enunwa on the far side with a catch & run for 48 yards, then after another Ivory 4yd run Fitzpatrick finds Brandon Marshall for 20 Yards and a first & goal on the Patriots 6yd line.
And the dagger to end the game as Fitzpatrick throws a 6yd fade to the near side and inside the end zone to Eric Decker who made the catch and over 82,000 Jets fans exploded into a happy frenzy and one step closer to clinching a playoff spot as the Baltimore Ravens did the job to throw a loss at the Pittsburgh Steelers and at the moment these two sides have flip flopped their positions.
It was another magical game for the Jets as Brandon Marshall & Eric Decker made NFL history as both players converted a touchdown catch in the same game for the 8th time & for Marshall he was able to make plays caught the ball eight times for 115 yards and two touchdowns. A quick 2yd screen pass and breaking the plain of the goal line for a 10-3 lead before the 1st half ended and then in the 3rd Quarter a big 33yd throw just inside the end zone while in coverage that brought all Jets fans to their feet.
While Chris Ivory looks like he has run out of gas, Bilal Powell is revving up his motor and made some spectacular runs to attack a weakened Patriots defense. Running it seven times for 56 yards and several catches and runs five times for 34 yards, running rough shot all over the place.
Ryan Fitzpatrick was fantastic once again as he found Enunwa, Decker & Enunwa several times in the open field and while he had a slow start and overthrowing passes early he tied Vinny Testeverde for most Touchdown throws with three today and twenty nine for the season with one game left. He completed 26 out of 41 passes for 296 yards and of course the strip sack fumble that was returned for a touchdown.
While the Jets were able to prevent Tom Brady for most of the game from doing any damage once again it would be a moment while down by a score to get back out there and tie the game, which did happen with a big 9yd catch in the middle of the field and was wide open for the score. While the Jets stopped the Patriots on 3rd down and they converted once in ten tries, the 4th down conversions were perfect at three for three.
But at the end of the day the Jets while lucky by a flip of a coin and a poor decision from Belichick, they took the bull by the horns and took control for most of the game and found a way to win and continue their march to a playoff spot. Celebrate now and then get ready for the Buffalo Bills in Western, NY.

Join Daniel Feuerstein & Rick Laughland as they Preview the Week 16 Matchup as the New York Jets face off against the New England Patriots in a hotly contested AFC East Divisional Game
Posted by Daniel Feuerstein Posted on 2:41:00 AM with No comments
As the days continue to pass after the Week 15 matchup for the New York Football Giants losing by a field goal to the undefeated Carolina Panthers, it sounds like Odell Beckham Jr. has been the target by all the Giants opponents and it looked like this game was the last straw for him taking all these verbal and physical cheap shots.
His manhood was attacked and the way he plays the game has been questioned along with his new celebrity coming so suddenly since that fantastic one handed catch last season against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football. But the truth is that Beckham should’ve known he was going to become a target in his second season of performing in the NFL.
The final straw that broke the Camel’s back was video evidence of the Panthers bringing a baseball bat to warm ups and one of the players or a member of the coaching staff shouting at Beckham and pointing it in his direction. Video evidence has shown ODB getting unhinged at the situation towards him and ripped off his helmet to shout obscenities back at the Panthers.
The rest is history as Beckham and Josh Norman were physically and mentally grabbing, jawing and wrestling with each other on nearly every single play and it all came ahead when Beckham who went past Norman, circled back and decided to become Ram Man (Masters of the Universe Character) and intentional launched himself with a flying head butt into the helmet of Norman and could’ve caused a concussion.
Thankfully the impact wasn’t that sever and Norman was able to walk off on his own power. This was the singular moment for the NFL Officiating Crew to not just throw flags, but use the power that was given to them by head of officials and the head of the rule book from Dean Blandino to eject Beckham Jr. and send him back to the showers early. That never happened and now after all the evidence was sent to the leagues office in Manhattan Odell Beckham Jr. is suspended for the Sunday night game at the Minnesota Vikings.
After it’s all said and done the truth is that Beckham went too far and he is showing that his skin is not so thick, because he can’t handle the insults and the cheap shots he is getting from his opponents. I’m not saying what’s going on is right and he should let it go, but he is showing at the moment he is not mature enough in the NFL to handle all of this negativity towards him and his opponents know that they can get to him mentally with ease.
It’s also showing that Tom Coughlin and the Giants are not doing the job to reign him in and trying to regain his composure after a hard nose battle on the field, or when he is getting insulted intentionally. Someone needs to tell Beckham that he isn’t in the college game anymore & he is not facing kids in the SEC, these are grown men which he is becoming and needs to learn to be a professional at all times. I understand it’s hard for him to hear all of these nasty and terrible insults that are being flown all over the field, but he needs to understand that he is now considered a target by the defense as they will try and stop him from being one of the best wide receivers in the game.
Because he has the talent and the makeup to be one of those great players that could have a hall of fame career and right now he is proving that he is still immature and he could’ve ended Josh Norman’s career with his human cannonball trick. It’s really a shame that the Panthers who brought a baseball bat and intentionally pointed at Beckham went so low in the insults war, but at the same time it’s a bigger shame that Beckham allowed himself to lower his level and take the bait.
We all know how special he is and what he is going to do for the future of the Giants, but once again he needs to lower his anger and he needs help from either himself, his teammates, coaches and others from within the organization to calm him down or else the next time he faces another top corner and it goes badly like the last time, it could be a lot worse and so could the punishment.

Join Daniel Feuerstein & Rick Laughland as they Review the big Week 15 matchup at AT&T Stadium as the New York Jets defeats the Dallas Cowboys 19-16 and go 9-5 with two games remaining.
Posted by Daniel Feuerstein Posted on 1:46:00 AM with No comments
There is no way to sugar coat this performance down at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. The New York Jets had their worst performance in the first season of the Todd Bowles coaching era as they found a way to win ugly against the Cowboys and pushed their record to 9-5 with a 19-16 victory.
But that big drive in the fourth quarter that put the Jets ahead for good was a fantastic throw by Ryan Fitzpatrick to Kembrell Thompkins down the near sideline for 43 yards and just stepped out of bounds at the Cowboys 26 yard line. A couple of running plays to try and get close for Randy Bullock who kicked a 40yd field goal right down the middle for the lead and the win.
A big Interception by Marcus Williams with 10 seconds remaining in the game solidified the victory and his sixth of the season to make sure the Cowboys had no more life left as they are officially eliminated from playoff contention. But to be fair when Jason Garrett changed quarterbacks from Matt Kassell to Kellen Moore, the Cowboys showed some life and made things difficult for the Jets.
But there were still mistakes made by the Cowboys as Moore threw three interceptions and a touchdown pass to Dez Bryant that made it 10-9 in the second quarter. The Jets also made their own errors as well by dropping sure passes and sadly Chris Ivory was not effective in this game as the Cowboys defense stopped the run.
But the Jets who committed seven penalties in the first half and cleaned it up in the second half only committed one were able to make some plays and found Brandon Marshall who made four catches for 75 yards and the big 3yd grab by Eric Decker who faked out the defense going from the near side to the far and had lots of room to make the catch.
With that touchdown catch by Decker he and Marshall have made a new Jets record for WR Touchdowns combined with 21 passing Keyshawn Johnson & Wayne Chrebet from the 1998 season. But Decker also went six catches for 55yds and thankfully wasn’t injured early in the first half on that tackle where it looked like he might have injured a leg.
Since Nick Folk went down with an injured hip and is out for the season Randy Bullock has been a decent replacement, but this time around he failed to convert an extra point and as he converted a 40yd field goal before the first half ended; a penalty flag was thrown for an illegal shift.
So as Bullock retook the field goal for 45yds the ball sailed wide right and kept the Cowboys ahead by a point. So while Bullock dropped four points, Todd Bowles dropped three points on his own as he decided to go for it on 4th & 1 early in the first quarter instead of kicking a sure field goal to tie the game at three.
But as the dust settles the New York Jets eventually win the game and are now heading back home to host the New England Patriots for another pivotal AFC East Divisional match up.

Join Daniel Feuerstein & Rick Laughland as they review the Week 13 match up as the New York Jets destroy the Tennessee Titans by a final of 30-8 and go 8-5
Posted by Daniel Feuerstein Posted on 10:33:00 PM with No comments
This was a crucial game for the New York Jets because of remaining in the playoff hunt as well as attempting to create a three game winning streak for the first time in a long time. But with the Tennessee Titans whimpering to Met Life Stadium to try and throw a wrench into the works.
But it was the Jets who had a big game in the first half that put the Titans away early and often as they converted five times out of six possessions either thru a touchdown or a field goal to win 30-8 and going 8-5. Ryan Fitzpatrick and the offense found a way to carve thru the Titans defense as they started on a 14 play 80yd drive that saw Eric Decker make a 16yd catch inside the end zone for the early lead.
After a couple of field goals from Randy Bullock from 47 yards and 23 yards (also missed one from 53yds) the Jets would go to work again and this time they would find Bilal Powell with a quick slant and slashing through the Titans defense with a 16yd catch and run for his second touchdown of the season.
But the best play of them all when the clock was counting down to halftime was the 69yd catch and run by Brandon Marshall as the Jets were ready to snap the ball, the Titans secondary was not sure where to set up and Ryan Fitzpatrick who has great chemistry with Marshall was able to link up for that play and take advantage of the miscommunication.
That entire first half for the Jets scoring 27 points in six possessions with a whopping 46 plays for a combined 330 yards that also includes the missed field goal with a Buster Skrine interception. A terrific game plan from Offensive Coordinator Chan Gailey to rip apart the defense.
Fitzpatrick completed 21 out of 36 passes for 263 yards with 3 touchdown passes and he helped his own cause with a nineteen yard run himself and rushing three times for 23 yards. The three touchdown passes he threw has put him at 25 for the season, he is four short of the record held by Vinny Testeverde who threw for 29 back in the 1998 season when Bill Parcells got the Jets to win the AFC East that year and to the AFC Championship game at Mile High Stadium.
Marcus Mariota had a horrific day behind center and that was helped by a Jets defense that was terrorizing him to no end as he got sacked five times and three of those were by Muhammed Wilkerson who got a season total of 12 so far with three games remaining in the regular season and the others were by Demario Davis and Leonard Williams who is familiar with Mariota being in the PAC 12 conference.
The New York Jets went out on the field to perform a solid game plan that has moved them to an 8-5 record that is still in a tight race with the Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh Steelers as one is still chasing while the other is remaining at the top of the pack with the Jets, but at the moment it the Steelers that have a better conference record than the Jets and that could be a sticky situation coming towards the end of the season.
But right now the Jets are looking strong and are only worrying about themselves and they should be. Just continue to play strong football and be ready for your own opponents on your own schedule. We shall see what the future holds for this team with three games remaining this season.

So after being down by ten points and waiting for the New York Giants to falter in this game that moment came in the 4th quarter with more than eight minutes remaining, saw Tom Coughlin inform Eli Manning to go for it on a 4th & 2 play on the Jets 4yd line. And instead of taking a sure three points Manning threw it into double coverage and Rontez Miles picked it off for the start of a big comeback.
It started off with a 12 play, 80yds possession that set up a 24 yard field goal by Randy Bullock who cut the deficit to a Touchdown and from that moment the Jets fans who were well outnumbered at Met Life Stadium as this was a home game for the Giants were able to force them to a three and out and made their final run of regulation into a Brandon Marshall Touchdown with 27 seconds remaining just inside the goal line.
After several solid plays like a 20yd run by Bilal Powell, as well as some solid catches from Marshall for 10yds and a Fitzpatrick 15yd run on a 4th down and 6 call to himself when no one was open that would set up that big 9yd catch inside the end zone and the conversion of an extra point to tie it up and send the game into overtime.
The Jets won the coin flip and took the opening possession with a good mix of runs and throws to get close to field goal range. A solid 13yd catch from Brandon Marshall with a mix of runs by Bilal Powell and a huge 17yd grab by Eric Decker that got the Jets into field goal range that Randy Bullock kicked for 31yds to give the three point lead.
The Giants had some good moments as well in the overtime session and when it was time to tie the game up with Josh Brown who has been perfect all season and has made long field goal kicks from 53yds had a 48yd field goal that was missed wide right and put the Jets into a two game winning streak and are 7-5 this season. This win also put the Jets back into a playoff spot knocking off the Houston Texans who lost to the Buffalo Bills.
The heroes of this game is not only Ryan Fitzpatrick who had one of his greatest games in his career, but the wide receivers were huge in this game including Eric Decker who made some great catches in the slot that for some strange reason the Giants couldn’t stop him. But catching the ball eight times for 101yds is outstanding.
Brandon Marshall had another spectacular game as well as he caught the ball twelve times for over 130yds & made team history along with NFL History. He became the first 1,000 yard receiver since Jerrico Cotchery back in the 2008 season when Brett Favre was the Quarterback and he has also earned 1,000 yds receiving for four separate teams that includes being with the Broncos, Dolphins & the Bears. He is the first player in NFL history to do this feat.
While there were some great plays in the first and fourth quarters for the Jets, they were absolutely terrible in the 2nd quarter. An 80yd punt return for a touchdown by Dwayne Harris that gave an early 7-3 lead and a 72yd catch and run touchdown by Odell Beckham Jr. that gave the Giants back the lead by seven after Bilal Powell scored one that tied the game at ten. But once again it’s not about how you play some of the time; it’s how you play all the time in the game of football.The Jets took advantage of that big miscue in the 4th quarter that allowed them to tie the game on two consecutive possessions and got into position for the winning field goal as well as the missed field goal by the Giants. But overall the New York Jets are 7-5 and back inside the playoff picture with the Kansas City Chiefs for the Wild Card spots
