For the latest on the Patriots, check out WEEI and Audacy's "1st and Foxborough."

Word to the wise: don’t bet against the Patriots when they play the Jets, especially at home.

Unfortunately, former Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall didn’t get that memo, and he now he has to wear it. Literally.

Patriots legend Julian Edelman shared on Instagram that he and Marshall, who work together on Paramount Plus’ “Inside the NFL,” made a friendly wager over the result of their old teams’ divisional matchup last Sunday. If the Jets won, Edelman would have to get a Jets tattoo. If New England prevailed, Marshall had to get Patriots ink.

New England, of course, pulled out 10-3 victory on Marcus Jones’ shocking last-second punt return touchdown, completing the season sweep of their rivals to the south.

That meant Marshall had to get the Patriots logo tattooed on his forearm as punishment for losing.

“A bets a bet. And @bmarshall is a man of his word. Thanks for saving me @patriots,” Edelman wrote in the Instagram post.

Marshall was part of the last Jets team to beat the Patriots in a game – a 30-27 overtime win back in 2015. But luck didn’t favor him this time around.

As for Edelman, he won’t have to face potential retribution for that bet until next season as the Patriots have already taken the Jets down twice this year.
