The Patriots experienced their share of near misses in opening the season with four consecutive losses at Gillette Stadium. On Sunday there wasn’t much they didn’t do well in routing the Jets 54-13 to post their first home victory of 2021. “Players were ready to go,” coach Bill Belichick said.
The New York Jets' already disappointing season took a more ominous turn when rookie quarterback Zach Wilson suffered a knee injury in the second quarter of a 54-13 loss to the New England Patriots on Sunday. Wilson said he felt a “pop” and a “twist” in his knee when Patriots linebacker Matt Judon fell on the back of his legs early in the second quarter. Wilson said the initial diagnosis was an injury to his posterior cruciate ligament, and he was to have an MRI on Monday.
