It's finally week three, and the Patriots are set to play the Jets at MetLife Stadium in a must-win game to get their season back on track. After losing two very winnable games due to mistakes that had them playing from behind, the hope is they'll write a different story against their longtime foe and extend their winning streak to 15 straight games.
Although the Jets have always been the butt of the joke when discussing the AFC East over the last two decades, they became favorites to win the division once they acquired Aaron Rodgers in a blockbuster trade earlier this year.
Unfortunately for them, that didn't last long, as the quarterback suffered a season-ending injury in week one. But it works in the Patriots' favor to be forced to play against good friend Zach Wilson instead.
It's New England's first road game of the year, and luckily for them, it's a familiar opponent. As both teams took the field hours before kickoff, there was a noticeable mishap on the field that some reporters couldn't help but laugh about.
Zack Cox of NESN took to Twitter/X to point out the absolute failure of a paint job someone did in one of the Jets' endzones where white footprints are seen all around the lettering of the team's name.
But that's not all.
Apparently, not only did the original painter leave tracks all over the endzone, but it appears the paint job didn't get the proper chance to dry before game time, as MassLive's Mark Daniels shows with an updated image.
The easiest way to summarize this is, 'Jets will Jet,' the age-old saying that most of the Patriots fanbase has coined throughout the years.
It's a funny way to start the day and probably something that will be pointed out during the game because when has this ever been seen before? You had one job and couldn't help but walk through the white paint and not even fix it before game time?
It's almost too good to be true, but we have the pictures to document this moment forever.
