Jets Defenders Show Respect, go Easy on Brady

Victory: Tom Brady led the Patriots to a comeback win over the Jets.

Backup quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo has taken most of the reps in practice but, according to a report for the Boston Globe's Ben Volin, the Patriots might be looking to bring Jacoby Brissett off the injured reserve this week for help. "It never gets old". Yet by the time he was done he had connected on 30 of 50 passes for two touchdowns to Mitchell to tie Peyton Manning as the all-time National Football League winning quarterback.

"It is a possibility", Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said on Tuesday. "That's what it's all about". I mean that's what it's all about, that's what a quarterback's job is, is to win. "He's given up more plays this year than in the past, but you've got to have a lot of respect for his style and his game". If it would have been any other guy I would have been just as happy. "He does a great job of executing and putting his teammates in the best position to make plays".

Volin's sentiment wound up falling a little short, especially as Brady drove the Patriots 83 yards down the field for the game-winning score. He missed some throws on third down and the Jets receivers dropped some passes, but he had time to make the throws and they had space to catch them. The Patriots improved to 9-2 on the season, trailing only the Raiders in the AFC standings based on the strength of victory tiebreaker.

But on second-and-5 from the 30, Chris Long hit Ryan Fitzpatrick before he could throw, resulting in a fumble that was recovered by Trey Flowers. Seven of the team's eight final drives finished in scoring position.

Brady, however, doesn't think it's entirely Revis' fault. "Brady!" in the final moments at MetLife Stadium, which had lots of empty seats as frustrated Jets fans apparently stayed home.

"It's better than last Monday, so I'm very happy about that", Brady said. While Brady wasn't sacked in the victory, he was under siege more than you'd like.




Hogan hauled in a 25-yard pass, getting open inside the Jets 10-yard line just before the two-minute warning, setting up the eventual winning touchdown. An intentional grounding call on Fitzpatrick killed the next Jet drive, and the Patriots got the ball back at their 17 with just over five minutes left in the game.

"Playing against the Patriots, you don't have to play the ideal game", Fitzpatrick said, "but you can't make mistakes".

The Jets had taken a 17-13 lead with 10:17 left when Quincy Enunwa leaped over Malcolm Butler in the end zone to grab a pass from Fitzpatrick.

Saints coach Sean Payton also victimized his former defensive coordinator, Gregg Williams, with some razzle-dazzle that produced a 50-yard touchdown pass from receiver Willie Snead to running back Tim Hightower.

Gostkowski connected on four kicks on Sunday: an extra point, and 28-, 29-, and 41-yard field goals. There wasn't a catch but there was a 31-yard pass interference call on Roberts to set up the first of three Stephen Gostkowski field goals.

It was a milestone-filled day for Brady, who also became the fifth quarterback in history to reach 60,000 passing yards when he completed an 18-yard pass to Julian Edelman in the second quarter.
