Jets Paint tracked throughout the Jets’ end zone.

On Sunday, something went wrong for the New York Jets even before kickoff of their home game against the New England Patriots. As NESN’s Zach Cox noted, the end zone paint of “Jets” at MetLife Stadium wound up being tracked throughout the end zone:

That drew a lot of commentary. Here’s some of that:

This also escalated quickly:

The Patriots are favored by 2.5 points in this one. But given both teams’ offensive struggles to date, there are a lot of people expecting the game to hit the under (the total is at 36.5). So there may not be too many end zone tracks on the day. But it’s certainly interesting to see all the footprints there long before the game.

The Jets are 1-1 on the year, thanks to a season-opening 22-16 overtime victory against the Buffalo Bills (but a Pyrrhic one, as they lost Aaron Rodgers along the way) and then fell 30-10 to the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2. The Patriots are 0-2 following a 25-20 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles and a 24-20 loss to the Miami Dolphins. We’ll see if the Jets can do better than their end-zone painters.
