On Sunday, the Jets will have one last chance to end the franchise's 15-game losing run against the Patriots, as they shamble toward the end of a miserable 2023 season.
Some of the athletes are thinking it's an accomplishment.
Linebacker Quincy Williams told reporters on Monday that the team's motivation and vibes are going well heading into this week's game against the Patriots, which is a big game. "Honestly, we're just trying to end this losing streak."
Williams was just a sophomore at Murray State when the Jets last defeated the Patriots on December 27, 2015.
His sibling, Quinnen Williams, a defensive lineman with the New York Jets, was a senior in high school. Quincy stated that the players are aware of the streak, even if it is not talked much in the locker room, while Quinnen noted that it is simply another game for him.
I can say that, even though it's not something that's verbally discussed..."Quincy speculated that there may be a casual discussion going on behind everyone's backs.
The only genuine reason is the intense animosity between the two teams.
"The concentration is the same, it's not like the whole thing is dependent on this one game mentality."
