EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Rex Ryan sent a message to the fans. His New York Jets delivered one of their own.
On the Mark Late
After having limited opportunities in the first half, Jets rookie QB Mark Sanchez connected on nearly 65 percent of his second-half attempts, including the go-ahead, nine-yard TD to Dustin Keller that gave the Jets the lead for good.
|First Half||Second Half|
• The Jets stopped two Patriots drives in the final five minutes of the game to improve to 2-0 for the first time since 2004.
• The only touchdown in the game was a nine-yard pass from Mark Sanchez to Dustin Keller in the third quarter.
• Tom Brady's streak of 21 consecutive wins as starting quarterback (one shy of Jim McMahon's record since the merger) came to an end. He finished without a passing TD for just the third time in his last 21 games (twice against the Jets).
• The Jets snapped the Patriots' nine-game win streak at the Meadowlands (eight at Jets, one at Giants) and won for just the third time in the teams' last 14 meetings including playoffs.
It was the first time New England was held without a touchdown since Dec. 10, 2006 at Miami (first time in 37 games), as the Patriots went 0-for-3 in the red zone.
