Patriots Vs. Jets Video Highlights: New England Dominates Sunday Night Football

In what was dubbed by the media hype machine as the biggest game of the season for both teams, the New York Jets fell flat against the New England Patriots at home, as the Pats won by a final score of 37-16.

For the most part, the stats on the Jets' side don't look terrible and certainly aren't indicative of a 21-point loss. That is, until you look at the turnover column. The Jets coughed up the ball three times - twice on Mark Sanchez interceptions - while the Pats didn't turn the ball over. Tom Brady was excellent on the night, though Rob Gronkowski made his life easy with a spectacular performance. Here are the video highlights.

The Patriots now lead the AFC East, though it remains extremely tight. They sit at 6-3, while both the Jets and Buffalo Bills are just one game behind them at 5-4.

Patriots Vs. Jets Final Score: New England Takes Control Of AFC East

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots have complete control of the AFC East following Sunday evening's victory over the New York Jets. Tom Brady led New England to 24 points in the second half, making the final score 37-16 in favor of the Patriots after an ugly first half of football.

Brady's favorite target during the duration of Sunday Night Football was tight end Rob Gronkowski, but six separate receivers were the benefactors of his 26 passing completions for 329 yards and three touchdowns.

Gronkowski definitely was key, however, as caught eight passes for 113 yards and two of Brady's three touchdowns. Veteran wide receiver Deion Branch pulled in a touchdown as well while linebacker Rob Ninkovich iced the game with an interception and touchdown of his own.

The Jets struggled throughout as Mark Sanchez threw two interceptions -- both of which ended up in the hands of Ninkovich -- which mostly offset his 306 yards through the air. Plaxico Burress pulled in Sanchez's lone touchdown pass to begin the fourth quarter.

The New England Patriots play the Kansas City Chiefs next week on Monday Night Football, making it an extra long week of recovery in between back-to-back games in primetime. The Jets are on the opposite end of the spectrum, though, as they have to turn around and play the Denver Broncos on Thursday night during the NFL Network's game of the week.

Patriots Vs. Jets Score: Tom Brady, New England Defense Rolling In Second Half

After a first half that was nearly nap-inducing aside from a few plays worthy of a chuckle, the New England Patriots and New York Jets have began to trade touchdowns on Sunday Night Football. The Patriots followed up a quick strike from Tom Brady to Deion Branch with a pick-six from linebacker Rob Ninkovich to give the Patriots a 37-16 lead as they take control of the AFC East.

Ninkovich's interception was actually his second of the game -- his first wasn't bad either, though, despite being a bit fluky. The veteran linebacker had previously posted two interceptions during his entire seven-year NFL career, meaning Sunday night's performance is probably going to stick with him for quite awhile.

Brady orchestrated an amazing drive to set up the 8-yard touchdown pass to Branch, going no-huddle for the majority of the 14-play drive that ate six minutes and 51 seconds of the play clock. 

Brady has completed 25 of his 38 passing attempts for 312 yards and three touchdowns. Branch has hauled in five of those passes, the longest being a 20-yard catch and run to set up the Patriots for an earlier touchdown.

VIDEO: Plaxico Burress Touchdown Catch Pulls Jets Within Touchdown

Plaxico Burress had been pretty quiet through most of the New York Jets' Sunday Night Football game with the New England Patriots, but Mark Sanchez was able to find him in the end zone early in the fourth quarter. Burress hauled in his third reception of the game for a touchdown, pulling the home team within seven points as New York now trails 23-17.

Burress has caught three of Sanchez's 14 total completions for 39 yards, which probably says more about his quarterback's game than his own. The touchdown catch was a thing of beauty, though, as the showed off a solid timing route.


The Jets are going to need to limit turnovers and find a way to stop Tom Brady from connecting with tight end Rob Gronkowski if they're going to have a chance to win this game, but throwing touchdowns certainly helps as well.

Sunday Night Football: Rob Gronkowski Catches Second Touchdown To Open New England Lead

The New England Patriots are finally making Sunday Night Football exciting, tacking on another touchdown after a first half that featured a 6-2 score at one point in the second quarter. The Patriots currently lead 23-9, however, as Rob Gronkowski has pulled in two touchdown passes from Tom Brady to open up New England's lead.

Gronkowski actually scored on the Patriots' previous possession, but New England had to settle for a field goal after it was determined that he stepped out of bounds before Brady was able to find him in the back of the end zone. The infraction ruined what was an impressive bit of scrambling by the quarterback before a solid catch from his wide receiver, as the video below illustrates.


Following the field goal, the Jets looked like they might be able to answer, but Mark Sanchez decided to audition for Football Follies Vol. 47 first. It is a bit difficult to explain, but the below animation should suffice.

Gronkowski then was able to pull in a second touchdown, one that actually counted, on the ensuing drive. At this point in the game, Gronkowski has been credited with six receptions for 84 yards and two touchdowns.

Bill Belichick and anyone counting on a big night from Gronkowski in fantasy can probably relate with the celebration Gronk pulled out after his second touchdown catch, even if it did result in a penalty flag (Sorry, Donald Strickland).

Patriots Vs. Jets Halftime Score: Tom Brady Touchdown Pass Gives New England Lead

The New England Patriots and New York Jets are locked in what we will call a defensive battle on Sunday Night Football, but both teams luckily eventually put points on the board from the right end zone (example of scoring in the wrong end zone) before halftime. The Patriots lead 13-9 at halftime of a game that once featured a six and a two on the scoreboard.

Tom Brady was able to cap off an awful first half performance from both teams with an 18-yard touchdown pass to tight end Rob Gronkowski with ten seconds left in the half. Brady completed 12 of his 22 passing attempts for 194 yards in the half, but the Gronkowski touchdown was the only one that resulted in points.


The lone touchdown for the Jets in the first half came on a two-yard scamper from Mark Sanchez to give New York a 9-6 lead midway through the second quarter. Sanchez completed the first half with 10 completions for 137 yards, 85 of which went to Santonio Holmes and Plaxico Burress.


Hopefully the last few drives of the first half are indicative of a more exciting second half. Even if it's Brady throwing left-handed passes out of his own end zone that result in penalty flags, at least points are being put on the scoreboard!

Patriots Vs. Jets Score: Stephen Gostkowski Field Goal Puts New England On Board

The New England Patriots and New York Jets are facing off this week on Sunday Night Football to see which team will take control of the AFC East. Early on, the Pats have the advantage on the scoreboard after Stephen Gostkowski was able to do what Nick Folk was not.

Gostkowski kicked a 50-yard field goal to give New England a 3-0 lead after the Patriots' opening drive sputtered to a stop after a solid start. Gostkowski's kick probably should have tied the game at three points apiece, but Folk's 24-yard chip shot on the Jets' opening drive went wide left.

Since that score isn't all that exciting, the NBC camera operators have done their best to find the interesting things in the crowd -- and are doing an excellent job of it, too, as the picture below featuring Shaquille O'Neal and Spike Lee will show.

The Jets haven't lost a game at home so far this season and Tom Brady's Patriots haven't looked quite as invincible as they have in the past so anything is still possible. Early on, though, New England is in the driver's seat for the AFC East.
