Even against one of the NFL’s weakest defenses and pass rushes, New York’s offensive line struggled against New England. Through the first five games of the season, the Patriots defense only had ten total sacks.
Against the New York Jets on Sunday, they sacked Josh McCown four times and pressured the veteran signal-caller all afternoon.
It wasn’t a good day for running the ball either as behind the offensive line, New York only averaged 3.1 yards per rush against a porous run defense. It’s been a rough season for this unit and it didn’t get much better against New England.
