Tom Brady breaks historic record with win over Jets

Posted October 16, 2017

There's still plenty of time left for the Patriots to win the game, but let's acknowledge the Jets' rare accomplishment, because what's happening in the first half on Sunday nearly never happens. McCown finished 31 of 47 for 354 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions.

The visceral loathing some National Football League fans have for five-time Super Bowl winning quarterback Tom Brady is unparalleled.

And that's how the Jets took a 14-0 lead over the Patriots in the first half.

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. As a result, a touchback was called and the Patriots were given the ball back on the 25-yard line. If the Patriots aren't leading the National Football League in giving up big plays, they have to be close.

The play was overturned when the officials determined Seferian-Jenkins lost control of the ball before he crossed the goal line and didn't recover possession until he was out of bounds in the end zone.

The Jets jumped out to a 14-0 lead, shocking the crowd which was about 50 percent Patriots fans.

Best tracking device: Tom Brady threw a flawless toss down the left sideline for Cooks, who did an excellent job to stay locked on to the pass and catch it for a 42-yard completion to the 2 near the end of the second quarter.

Seferian-Jenkins was headed to the end zone when he briefly bobbled the ball before falling into the pylon.

The call on the field was a touchdown. Dion Lewis also had a 1-yard TD run. New England dominated the clock game to start the second half. Two plays later, Brady hit Gronkowski for a 2-yard touchdown to send the game to halftime tied at 14-14.

A week after a 12-penalty performance came on the heels of a contest where they put themselves in precarious spots with a series of ill-timed infractions, the Patriots didn't commit their first penalty until the early minutes of the third quarter. In the receiving end, Brandin Cooks posted 85 yards in five receptions while Danny Amendola added 77 yards in eight catches. Gronkowski beat Adams, who laid out to get the ball and missed. "We haven't played particularly well in the fourth quarter".
