Glazer: The Jets got away with one against the Patriots
We all saw the controversial call that cost the New England Patriots a game against the New York Jets in Week 7. The refs flagged the Patriots for pushing a player into the offensive line on a field-goal attempt, giving Gang Green prime position to kick the eventual game-winner just a few plays later.
Patriots coach Bill Belichick claimed the Jets did the exact same thing on a play earlier in the game, but weren’t penalized. Jets coach Rex Ryan denied that such a push took place.
However, the NFL sent out a video to all 32 teams this week which backed up Belichick’s claim. FOX Sports NFL Insider Jay Glazer got the tape and sure enough, it seems Belichick had a legitimate gripe.
