Jets react to loss to Patriots

Nick Laham

The New York Jets were disappointed following a tough loss to a divisional rival, although Rex Ryan and Mark Sanchez felt the team showed good effort in the 29-26 loss.

The New York Jets came close against the New England Patriots, pushing their division rivals to overtime despite a double-digit deficit heading into the fourth quarter, but lost by a field goal in overtime - something that didn't sit well with the team or its head coach in their post-game press conferences.

Rex Ryan praised his team's effort, but noted that his team "made too many mistakes" and "didn't get it done":

Shoot, We knew it was going to be a dogfight, there's no question about it. I tell you it just stinks being on this end of it.

For quarterback Mark Sanchez, the disappointing loss came down to a lack of execution:

It stings. It really stings. We said it, early in the week, we can't kick field goals against this team. You've got to get seven points. We came up short a couple of times and missed some opportunities.

Both quarterback and coach agreed that the team had a good showing in the loss against the team now alone in first place in the AFC East, but that good performance wasn't reflected in the result.
