Maybe if the Patriots didn't play so horrendously in the second half, they wouldn't have been in the position they were in in overtime, where they lost to the Jets.

Up 21-10 at the start of the third quarter, the Patriots came out completely flat.

Tom Brady threw an interception that was returned for a touchdown, to kick things off. He was sacked and pressured on numerous occasions. In all, they had three drives of negative yardage in the third quarter. The fourth quarter was a bit better by default, but not by much. They scored just six points in the second half.

Mike Felger, Troy Brown, and Mike Flynn discuss the disastrous second half.

"In the third quarter quarter and large stretches of the second half, the Patriots got their butts kicked," Felger said. And that's why you were in that situation to begin with. The Patriots were up two possessions."

Flynn agrees that the Pats were no-shows in the second half.

"Offensively they didn't show up. You let this team back in the game," Flynn said. "At halftime, they were dead to rights. Geno Smith awful pick. Really couldn't run the football. They had everything in their advantage. Statistically it wasn't there, but they had this game, and they let them back in it. They didn't play well at all offensively.
