After a promising 30 minutes gave way to an all-too-familiar second half of silliness, New York Jets safety Jamal Adams vowed to find a solution to the team’s increasing woes.
EAST RUTHERFORD, NEW JERSEY—Jamal Adams frustration has become an increasingly familiar sight and sound on Sunday afternoons in East Rutherford. The trend carried on this weekend with his New York Jets dropping a 27-13 decision to the New England Patriots at MetLife Stadium, their fifth loss in a row.
Even the optimists in the Jets fan community probably had reservations about a visit from thePatriots, unchallenged leaders of the AFC East for the umpteenth year in a row, but a surprisingly spirited first half of football perhaps instilled cautious hope in the hearts of a fanbase starving for any kind of gratification in a season gone horribly awry.
Thanks to a strong defensive effort, the Jets played the Patriots to a 10-10 tie after the first 30 minutes, one headlined from four tackles from Adams. But, as Adams met with the media after the loss, his weekly outpour of frustration was mixed with a feeling of hope and a potentially fateful promise.
