EAST RUTHERFORD -- There was rampant speculation inside MetLife Stadum when the Jets fell behind 35-0 late in the second quarter that Tim Tebow would finally appear at quarterback, replacing Mark Sanchez.
After the 49-19 thrashing of the Jets was complete, Tebow explained why he was never inserted into the game, despite being active.
"Two fractured ribs," Tebow announced, adding he suffered the injury on Nov. 11 in Seattle.
The crowd began chanting "Te-bow, Te-bow" as the Jets fell behind by 35 points. But Jets coach Rex Ryan said afterward that he wasn't going to put Tebow in the game when he was hurt.
"I was only going to play Tim if we absolutely had to have him," Ryan said. "That's why he wasn't on the punt team and didn't have any snaps on offense."
"I appreciate his concern," Tebow said. "I had to do a little bit of talking just to dress but I...
EAST RUTHERFORD -- Bill Belichick became just the eighth coach in NFL history to reach 200 wins in a career in the 49-19 blowout of the Jets Thursday night at MetLife Stadium. The mark includes regular season and the playoffs.
"It's been a privilege and a great opportunity to coach the players that won those games," Belichick said afterward. "I never made a block, didn't make a tackle, didn't throw a pass, didn't kick a ball. The players won them.
"It's an honor to coach the group of players that go out there and make the plays and to win those games, and that's what happened [Thursday]. The players went out there and made the plays and they deserved to win. It's a privilege to coach this team for Mr. Kraft, the Kraft family, the Patriots organization and the players that are on it. It's nice but it's really more a reflection of what the players have done."
Belichick is now 200-107 in his career, including 17-7...

EAST RUTHERFORD -- For the first time since Oct. 21, Aaron Hernandez will be active for the Patriots as they take on the Jets at MetLife Stadium. But starting right tackle Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee) will be inactive, as will newly activated offensive lineman Markus Zusevics.
Hernandez' return coincides with the loss of Rob Gronkowski for several weeks with a broken left forearm, suffered last week against the Colts. Zusevics was activated hours before the game off the non-football injury list.
Vollmer (knee/back) and Zusevics join rookie defensive lineman Jake Bequette and Marquice Cole as game day inactives. Rob Gronkowski, Logan Mankins and Chandler Jones were ruled out on Wednesday.
