Bills lose top spot in AFC East after Patriots defeat Jets

Adjust Comment Print

Brady hit wide receiver Brandin Cooks with a flawless pass down the sideline and over Morris Claiborne for a 42-yard gain.

Instead, Brady drove the Patriots down the field for a touchdown. With Seferian-Jenkins not regaining possession before he went out of bounds, the call was reversed to a fumble in the end-zone. At one point in the third quarter, after being sandwiched in between two Jets defenders as he fell to the ground, Brady thrust his right fist into the ground in frustration. Dion Lewis scored the touchdown from there.

The Patriots and Jets are tied at halftime, 14-all, but you could be forgiven for thinking that someone forgot to tell the Patriots that they were playing for the division lead in the AFC East. Brady connected with Gronkowski again, this time a 33-yard touchdown. Forgive Jets fans for their enthusiasm prior to Sunday's loss.

Controversy aside, Brady's record as a starter is phenomenal. Josh McCown completed 23 of 30 passes for 194 yards and two touchdowns against an interception. New England dominated the clock game to start the second half.

See how Twitter is reacting the the Jets' lead over the Pats.

Having deferred on the opening coin toss, the Patriots were set up to receive the football to open the second half. McCown connected on touchdown passes to Seferian-Jenkins and Jeremy Kerley that put the Patriots in an early hole. As a result, a touchback was called and the Patriots were given the ball back on the 25-yard line.

Typically, referees' decisions are only reversed if it's clear the call was wrong.

Entering the year, the New England Patriots were thought to have a realistic shot at going 16-0 and the New York Jets were thought to have a realistic shot at an 0-16 season.
