(GIF) Jets vs. Patriots Fight After Nick Mangold’s Dirty Hit


The New England Patriots would defeat the New York Jets in an AFC East showdown on Thursday Night Football in one of the ugliest games we can remember, but a literal fight resulting in ejections ended Jets vs. Patriots for good.

Jets’ rookie quarterback Geno Smith threw an interception, and as the defensive back moved out of bounds to end the play, Jets’ offensive lineman Nick Mangold took it upon himself to lay a dirty hit at the knees (via SB Nation):

Quite the fitting end for such an ugly game, no? Jets’ offensive linemen D’Brickashaw Ferguson and Wllie Colon were ejected from the game and had to take the walk of shame out of the stadium before Tom Brady could kneel and put the final dagger in the Jets.

Ugly game from both sides, but now the rematch down the line this year should at least be more interesting. So there’s that.
