New England's seven-point win Sunday was not without controversy as Jets tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins had a touchdown taken away by a questionable call. "But at the end of the day ... they make the calls and I've gotta have better ball security and I've gotta review the tape and make sure I make the necessary corrections so that doesn't happen again". "I saw it bobbled and I saw him gain control of it". Favre's teams lost 123 times in 322 games.
Corrente said the ball came out "a second time" as one knee hit the ground, adding, "Now he's out of bounds in the end zone, which now created a touchback". From what we could see in the stadium it was hard to tell how they would overturn it.
While Brady picked up his 24th career win over the Jets - his most over any team other than the Bills (26) - he didn't have his trademark accuracy and smart decision-making throughout. But Brady also finished with 257 yards through the air and connected with Rob Gronkowski for a pair of touchdowns as the Pats came up with a big road win. The New York Jets pass defense seemed to be playing some of their best football against one of the greatest. I wish we could've played a little bit better offensively. But their last-minute comeback attempt fell short.
Worst momentum killer: With the Patriots driving into Jets territory in the first quarter, linebacker Darron Lee poked the ball loose from running back Mike Gillislee's grasp and cornerback Buster Skrine recovered for the hosts. Todd Bowles set the right tone in the losing locker room, telling his players that one play didn't cost this team a shot at first place, and the head coach is right. Don't look now, but a team predicted to struggle for the season has now won three-straight games. The play was reminiscent of many long passes the Pats gave up this season on miscommunications in the defensive backfield.
That wasn't the case early, though.
The New England Patriots now sit alone at the top of the AFC East with a record of 4-2. If I take care of the ball like I'm supposed to and don't let it move or anything like that, we don't have this discussion.
Tom Brady and the New England Patriots look to make it two wins in a row as they visit the Jets on Sunday.
