Patriots troll Jets with butt fumble Throwback Thursday

Thursday October 22nd, 2015

The Patriots are taking on the Jets for the first time this season and the reigning Super Bowl champs are riling up their division rivals fans with a trolling take on throwback Thursday, that was later deleted.

Predictably, fans of the Jets, and just about every other team, quickly lost their minds in the replies.

The post deletion seems odd as New England reminding New York fans of the butt fumble is becoming a yearly tradition, with the team's Twitter account sending out a similar tweet before a matchup last season, that still remains avaliable (for now.)
