A New York Jets fan was angry during their second loss of the season and lost more than his temper in the stands.
On a rain-soaked afternoon at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, the Jets lost 15-10 to their AFC East division rival, the New England Patriots.
Early in the second quarter, with the Jets down 3-0 and quarterback Zach Wilson leading their offense to minus-12 yards on a three-and-out drive, a fan expressed his thoughts.
One Jets fan was so angry his teeth even dropped as he yelled at players as they left the field.
CBS analyst Tony Romo jokingly commented on the replay: “You know you’re frustrated when your teeth come out!”
Later on NFL Redzone, host Scott Hanson commented, “Oops, Fixodent and forget it.”
And fans quickly flocked to X, formerly known as Twitter, when the clip went viral.
“Poor guy turned into a meme,” one fan commented.
Another replied: “Scott Hanson made a reference to ‘Fixodent and forget it’ and I’ve been in shambles ever since.”
While a third said: “That’s mean to highlight on national television.” #TonyRomo and CBS should pay for this man’s dental implants or something instead of making fun of him.” @NFLonCBS

“Plus the Jets are terrible.”
Unfortunately for the viral fan, things only got worse as the game went on.
Wilson finished 18 of 36 yards for 157 yards, while the Jets’ offense managed a paltry 38 yards on 22 carries.
And with star quarterback Aaron Rodgers apparently hoping for a comeback from his torn Achilles tendon late in the season or in time for the playoffs, things could get worse before they get better in Week 4 when they face the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Jets will host the reigning Super Bowl champions on October 1 in this week’s Sunday Night Football matchup.
