The Patriots have had the Jets' number over the past decade, much to the chagrin of resident New Yorkers. As for those up in the Boston area, they relish in the misery of their Gang Green counterparts.
Just ask Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman, who decided to post a series of photos on his Instagram account showing him facing he Jets from 2009 up until 2019. To add salt to the wound, Edelman added the caption "times change, rivalries don't."
That's some shots fired by Edelman.
Jets safety Jamal Adams, who was featured in the post, saw this and decided to bring some facts tonight. In the photo, it looks like Edelman stiff-armed Adams. But the third-year safety clapped back, saying that he tackled him on that specific play.
"I made the tackle...," commented Adams.
With the Patriots taking the first matchup up the 2019 season, the Jets feel mighty confident heading into Monday night. New York has their starting quarterback in Sam Darnold, who torched the Dallas Cowboys last week, while the Patriots have a plethora of injuries on the offensive side of the ball.
Make no mistake about it, there's going to be some bad blood between the Patriots and Jets.
