Monday Night Football: Jets take on the Patriots at MetLife Stadium on PIX11

Darnold had a 3.7 passer rating, which is the lowest mark by an opposing quarterback against the Patriots in Bill Belichick's 21-year tenure as the team's head coach.

The New England Patriots needed to upgrade at receiver, and they obtained it mere hours after thumping the New York Jets. And that's when he uttered two words he will probably come to regret.

"I think, for me, when I talk to the coaches, I just got to be straight up", Darnold said.

And the top-ranked Patriots defense was a big reason in this one. He's thrown only four touchdown passes over the past four games, three of them in one game against the Redskins on October 6.

Overall, the Jets turned the ball over six times.

United made the most of that escape as Arsenal's long-running set-piece issues resurfaced in the 30th minute. But we needed to produce a big performance because we were playing a team who are a historic football club.

The Jets were unable to get anything done in all three phases of the game, falling 33-0 for their first shutout of the season. "For me, I just got to see the field a lot better".

"Obviously, that first pick, it wasn't a good feeling", Darnold said.

Whether they were ghosts, boogeymen or Patriots dressed in white, the Jets quarterback was too often throwing to the wrong team.

NY is ahead 4-3 in the previous meetings.

Brady's Patriots offense broke through for an opening-drive touchdown against the Jets on Monday, setting the National Football League season's record as the longest opening drive by number of plays, at 16 total, per ESPN Stats & Info. That's something you simply don't see every day.
