Patriots-Jets rivalry is over

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — R.I.P. to the rivalry between the Patriots and the New York Jets. Unlike (Off the) Mark Sanchez and the Jets, it has easily reached the end zone.

The Jets have gone from formidable foil for the Patriots to punch line/punching bag. Thursday night’s Thanksgiving Massacre at MetLife Stadium, a 49-19 mashing of the Jets eulogized — or was it euthanized? — the latest iteration of the Border War. There still might be enmity between the teams, but the gap between them has grown wider than the one between Rex Ryan’s predictions and the Jets’ on-field achievements.
