Patriots roll through Jets for quick touchdown

Getty Images

The Patriots wrap up the top seed with a win on Sunday afternoon and they wasted no time getting on their way to that result.

New England went 75 yards in a little over five minutes and took a 7-0 lead over the Jets on a three-yard touchdown run by Dion Lewis.

It looked for a moment like the Patriots might have to settle for a field goal, but Bill Belichick left the offense on the field for a fourth-and-two that Tom Brady converted with a pass to Danny Amendola. Lewis got the ball six times and figures to continue to see a lot of work as the Patriots are playing without Rex Burkhead, Mike Gillislee and James White.

That should keep Lewis warm on a frigid day at Gillette Stadium and more Patriots points should keep anyone from feeling too much of a chill in the stands.

  1. Brady 8-14 for 69 yards. average air yards per pass -.3 yards, rac average 8.625 yards. Good thing his receivers can run or he would be negative yards passing. LMAO

    How many sacks does James Harrison have to this point in the game ?

    Your continued obsession with a spare part is duly noted.

    And yet still 10 times better than whoever plays QB for whatever team you root for.

    And he’s 11-19 for 93 yards and a td.

  4. Harrison has played well. Taking about 40% of the snaps. They have run at him once and he made the tackle. He’s been around the ball when the run away from him. NY isn’t really passing that much. He has been dropping in coverage and took away the primary read twice, no passes completed against him. He’s rushed once but the throw came out quickly. All in all, the guy has integrated well and played well.

  5. Meh, average game for Brady. Only 2 TD’s and mid 90’s passer rating. He’s missed some throws and had some dropped. It’s windy and cold. -3 wind chill. 2nd coldest game in 25 years. There has been a long PI as well. Great 2 minute drive before the half (what else is new).

    4 automatic first downs in 1 half must be nice to be The Patsys .
    =======================================
    Any more excuses?

  7. The four first downs by penalty were all obvious. Two were against the intended target and stopped large gains, particularly the D-holding call on Skrine. The two away from the ball were obvious as well and yet unnecessary. They were the types of plays bad teams like the Jets make. The game is being officiated well so far.

    Patriots are frauds. Can’t move the ball without officials.

    ———————
    Thats not the officials, the calls are valid the Jets Dbacks keep making mistakes. But I would like to see more moving the ball without the Jets Dbacks helping.

    14 points off bad calls—

    None of them were bad calls clear and obvious holding on third down

    Are you the ONLY one who didn’t see it when they showed the replay
    Even with Romo pointing it out

    Well you posted back near the beginning of the game. But all in all he has played well. He has stopped the one run they sent at him, disrupted some pass routes (not something I was expecting of him) and just a moment ago made the key third down stop to end the Jets opening second half drive. Sorry we dont have any big highlight reel plays yet but he is fitting in effectively and doing his job. The Jets have been running away from him so they are noticing the presence.

    LMAO, there’s no point in illustrating facts for chip’s sock puppet drawer. If she was actually watching the game she’d be hearing Romo calling out the penalties as they happen. Simple truths like bad teams drawing flags because they aren’t good enough to keep up are lost on her.

  12. Harrison has as many tackles in 3 quarters for the Pats as he had in Pittsburgh’s first 15 games.
