On Sunday, the Jets jumped out to a quick 14-0 lead over the Patriots at MetLife Stadium thanks to Josh McCown, who threw two touchdowns. If the Patriots aren't leading the National Football League in giving up big plays, they have to be close. "I just asked Malcolm what happened".

Last week, Brady's Pats managed to survive a scare as Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers had a shot at the end zone to win the game in the final seconds.

The Jets punted away on their next possession, opening the door for the Patriots to build some momentum, but Tom Brady was intercepted while trying to throw deep to Phillip Dorsett.

With 8:31 remaining in the contest and the Patriots ahead 24-14, Seferian-Jenkins appeared to get to the pylon with possession of the football.

Considering the Jets lost the game by exactly seven points - and because the rule was not properly understood by the broadcast crew calling the game - this overturn will be looked at as arguably the single biggest reason the Patriots won the game.

With the win, Brady passed both Peyton Manning and Brett Favre, who were tied for first with 186 career regular season wins. Elijah McGuire was the top rusher for the team with just 20 yards in the game. New England dominated the clock game to start the second half. McCown finished with 354 yards and two scores but was also picked off twice in a frustrating loss. If the Patriots have been slowly working the oft-injured Lewis back into prominence, Sunday's events should instill even further confidence that Lewis is ready for more responsibility.

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.

Pats that, though. New England got the break and is now in sole possession of first place in the AFC East, while Jets fans are left wondering "what if". With the win, the Patriots moved to 4-2 on the season, and the Jets fall to 3-3. But at least the Patriots cleaned up some of the sillier stuff.
