Patrick Chung was the one who called for the fake punt late in the second quarter of Sunday's playoff loss to the Jets, according to punter Zoltan Mesko. Mesko told NESN.com that Chung, who was working as the up-man on the play, made the call. "We trust the decision Patrick makes," Mesko said. "It just didn’t work out in that particular occasion. That’s why the coaches trust him to run it, and that's why they give him the green light, if he has it." Chung appeared to bobble the snap and lost a yard, giving the Jets great field position as the Patriots turned it over on downs. New York cashed in four plays later when Mark Sanchez hit Braylon Edwards on a 15-yard pass play to give the Jets a 14-3 lead shortly before the end of the half.

FOXBORO -- Jets linebacker Bart Scott met with the media following his team's 28-21 win over the Patriots. Scott was asked when he knew that the Jets were in the head of Tom Brady on Sunday.
"When he started looking for the rush when there was no rush," said Scott. "When he thought after a certain amount of time, he was fidgeting. I give Ben Roethlisberger a lot of credit, he's man enough to stay in the pocket, look in the barrel of the gun and take the hit. Most quarterbacks don't like getting hit. When they get hit, they turn into a totally different person."
Scott had lectured the media earlier in the week about the difference between the regular season and the playoffs, and he hammered that point again Sunday night in the locker room.
"We were given virtually no chance, but we knew that his [Brady] TD/INT ratio was high in the last four, five playoff games," said...
FOXBORO — Following his team's 28-21 victory over the Patriots, Jets linebacker Bart Scott clarified the comments he made Friday about Wes Welker m when he said the receiver's days in a uniform are numbered. "I meant I was going to try and take my helmet and ram it through his chest," Scott said.
The Jets linebacker took offense to Welker's press conference on Thursday in which he made 11 foot or toe references.
"That's my coach," Scott said. "I can take comments any way I choose to, that's my privilege. And I took offense to it and I handled it that way."
Scott played under Rex Ryan in Baltimore and signed with the Jets as a free agent in 2009 after Ryan was named head coach.
"I stand behind my words, and if I get another opportunity for him to come through the middle, I'm going...
FOXBORO — Patriots wide receiver Deion Branch ripped some of the Jets for what he called “classless” postgame celebrations in the wake of the Sunday’s divisional playoff game at Gillette Stadium.
Branch would not single out any individuals, but several Jets players were seen giving the finger to fans on the way off the field after the 28-21 win by New York.
“There was a lot of classless play on the football field after the game. But you have to expect that from some of the guys over there,” Branch said. “Some of the guys … that was the only thing that was embarrassing. I think right now, there’s just a lot of frustration.
“I’m a champion. I’ll always congratulate the guys upon victory. They beat us today. They beat us when it mattered. So the ones with class, I shook their hands. The other ones, I didn’t. They don’t...
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady said the team just "made too many mistakes," in its 28-21 loss to the Jets in the divisional round of the AFC playoffs. "Too many plays that weren't the way we drew them up," he said. Brady also praised the Jets saying, "It was a good plan by them. You have to give them a lot of credit."
Asked if he was shocked that the season came to such an abrupt end, Brady said, "It's like you're on the treadmill running 10 miles and hour and then somebody hits the stop button. I think we're a pretty good football team, but not the way we played."
