SCORE: Patriots 30, Jets 14

IN BRIEF: The Patriots race out to a 30-0 lead in the third quarter, but special teams and defensive touchdowns from the Jets spoil New England's bid for a second straight shutout in a game also marred by a chest injury suffered by Julian Edelman late in the second quarter.

BOX SCORE

PATRIOTS RECORD: 3-0

HIGHLIGHTS

SONY STRIKES EARLY

Sony Michel caps off a 9-play, 88-yard drive with a 5-yard rushing touchdown to put the Pats on top early — the 22nd straight red zone possession against the Jets that the Patriots have converted (15 TD, 7 FG). The only blemish? Another missed PAT by Stephen Gostkowski.

PHIL IT UP

Surprise, surprise. Another touchdown for Phillip Dorsett, his sixth in his last seven games dating back to Week 17 last season. With the score, Tom Brady passes Drew Brees for second place on the all-time passing TD list.

 

POURING IT ON

Brady connects with Julian Edelman for a 3-yard score. Brady's seventh TD pass of the season sets a new NFL record for most in a season by a quarterback after the age of 42.

CAUSE FOR CONCERN

Just before halftime, Edelman comes up short of first-down yardage on this short catch — but more importantly, he suffers a chest injury and heads into the locker room early. 

NOT JOSHING AROUND

Despite getting banged up earlier in the game, Josh Gordon skies for an incredible 28-yard sideline grab, then makes another impressive catch in the fourth quarter.

NOT-SO-SPECIAL TEAMS

The Patriots hadn't allowed a touchdown since the fourth quarter of last year's AFC Championship Game, but that streak ends after a muffed punt from Gunner Olszewski.

INAUSPICIOUS DEBUT

Jarrett Stidham's first career NFL touchdown... is thrown to Jamal Adams. Brady would replace Stidham on the following drive after the rookie went 2-for-3 for 14 yards and the interception.
