Always like watching Showtime’s Inside the NFL because they have some angles and on-field audio you wouldn’t ordinarily get.
A few things stuck out:
- In the Jets’ pre-game huddle, Jets running back LaDainian Tomlinson kept screaming over and over again, “We’re physical, they finesse!” while pointing to the Patriots.
- At one point during a sideline session with his defensive backs, Patriots coach Bill Belichick told his players, “Just stay close to these receivers, OK? I mean, he’s not putting the ball on the money. Let’s get one now.” Patriots then intercepted Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez three times.
- Remember that play when Patriots linebacker Jermaine Cunningham appeared to have Sanchez lined up for a sack only to see Sanchez escape and throw the ball away? Now we know why: a camera angle showed Sanchez grabbing Cunningham’s face mask and dragging him to the ground.
