5 things we learned from Patriots blowout against Jets

5 things we learned from Patriots blowout against Jets

The Patriots finished the season (13-3, as the No. 1 seed in the AFC) with as many wins as degrees at game time (It was 13 degrees at kickoff, which qualified the game as the coldest in Patriots regular season history; the coldest was the four-degree playoff evening against the Tennessee Titans in 2004). That's bone-chilling weather for a Jets team that was playing out the string, and Belichick, trying to wrap up home-field advantage in the AFC, might have been trying to get the Jets to look ahead to the offseason. Lewis's late-season surge came at the right time, when the Patriots suffered a number of injuries at running back and wide receiver. Petty is 0-3 as a starter this season and 1-6 over the last two years. Harrison had five tackles and two sacks, both on back-to-back plays to end the game.

Tom Brady bookended his regular season with a pair of games in which he completed less than half of his pass attempts, hitting on just 18 of 37 throws to connect on sub-50 percent for the first time since a awful showing in the opener.

It is going to be a cold one on Sunday, with temperatures expected to be in the low teens, not including the wind chill. With that, the quarterback finished his season with 4,577 yards through the air, 32 touchdowns, eight picks, and a completion percentage of 66.4 percent.

Due to the injury to Carson Wentz of the Philadelphia Eagles a few weeks ago, Brady became the clear front-runner for the award.

Big Yellow Group (BYG) Rating Reiterated by Liberum Capital
After $1.42 actual EPS reported by Citigroup Inc. for the previous quarter, Wall Street now forecasts -11.27% negative EPS growth. The stock was bought at an average price of GBX 1,036 ($14.05) per share, for a total transaction of £207,200 ($280,987.25).

A New England win would also mark another milestone in Belichick's career. He played quite a bit in the preseason, then seemed buried behind James White, Rex Burkhead, and Mike Gillislee when the real games began. Since Tom Brady took over at quarterback, the Patriots are an absurd 17-3 in the playoffs at home. Lewis answered the call, finishing his night with 93 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries.

Lewis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Brady with 23 seconds left in the first half. But it turns out there's a significantly more innocent explanation. "They counted on me today and I just got to try and make plays for the team and have fun out there". So might the lingering effects of his knee reconstruction. Each day it went, it got better. Only a reckless fool bets against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick this time of year - especially this year, when eight of 12 teams in the National Football League playoff field did not make the playoffs last year. "It's that time of the year where you don't want to go out there and just not be prepared, not go and play a good game".

Brandin Cooks was the top receiver for Brady, catching five passes for 79 yards and a score. But with the playoffs next, more valuable than the production might've been the goal. The Pats beat their AFC East rival New York Jets by a final score of 26-6. But Jets outside linebacker Jordan Jenkins doesn't believe the Jets are all that far away from the Patriots. Playoff-bound New England is again big chalk for Sunday afternoon's regular-season finale with NY in Foxboro. He's appeared in just five games this season, getting one sack.

Most the players on the Jets' defense didn't wear sleeves Sunday.
