Best and worst from Patriots' 24-17 victory over the Jets

Posted October 16, 2017

On his first three drives, Tom Brady amassed stats of five completions on ten attempts for 33 yards.

Sunday's National Football League schedule brings a slew of early games for fans to enjoy including #Tom Brady and the New England Patriots in action against a surprising New York Jets team.

A leaky Patriots defense put the offense in a hole, letting the Jets pull out to a 14-0 lead before the first quarter came to an end. It also wasn't the prettiest of his 187 regular-season wins.

But every scored play is reviewed, and they looked really, really close at that one, because the touchdown call was reversed and the ball was given to New England.

Branson said he was "looking forward to helping turn this cutting edge engineering into a global passenger service", he added. Branson said the company was working on "exciting projects" around the world but no lines have been confirmed as yet.

Instead, the national football debate will center around a controversial call that wiped away a would-be Jets touchdown and gave the football to the Patriots in a 10-point game in the fourth quarter. Seferian-Jenkins didn't regain control until after he had stepped out of bounds, resulting in a touchback - despite the ball never hitting the ground.

"I wish we would have done better, but we won", he said after the game. Brady's winning percentage of 77.6 percent is the best of any quarterback to ever start more than three games in the league.

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. If New England can get him blocked and get the run game going early that will force the Jets to stack the box and allow New England plenty of opportunities in the passing game. They held a 14-0 lead in the first half and pulled to within a touchdown of the Patriots in the fourth quarter. In the receiving end, Jeremy Kerley posted 39 yards in four receptions while Jearmaine Kearse added 38 yards and a touchdown in four catches. They went 75 yards on eight plays for the score.

The Patriots are back at home next Sunday to face the Atlanta Falcons for a rematch of last season's Super Bowl.
