Jets quarterback Zach Wilson threw three interceptions, John Frankin-Myers committed a critical penalty and Gang Green blew a halftime lead in a 22-17 loss to the Patriots. It was New England’s 13th straight win over the Jets and ended a four-game winning streak for the Jets.
Wilson started off strong but then became a turnover machine. Wilson had gone three consecutive games without a turnover but gave the Patriots three of them Sunday. In their first game without running back Breece Hall, the Jets struggled to move the ball.
Patriots quarterback Mac Jones was not much better than Wilson, but New England played ball control in the second half and erased a 10-3 Jets lead with 19 unanswered points. Jones completed 24 of 35 passes for 194 yards with a touchdown and one interception. Wilson completed 20 of 41 passes for 355 yards and two touchdowns, but also the three interceptions.
Former Jets kicker Nick Folk booted five field goals for the Pats.
The Jets fell to 5-3 and the Patriots moved to 4-4. The Jets have another big AFC East game next week against the Bills.
