Patriots Handle Jets 30-14 [VIDEO]
Don't let the final score fool you. The New England Patriots dominated the New York Jets 30-14 but it was not that close.
The (3-0) Pats jumped out to a 20-0 lead at halftime, scoring on their first three possessions. A Sony Michel five-yard touchdown run. A Tom Brady to Phillip Dorsett 25-yard TD pass. And, a a 3-yard TD pass to Julien Edelman.
Meanwhile, the Patriots defense was dominant again, allowing the Jets just 105 total yards. There were five quarterback sacks with Jamie Collins getting two of them. The Pats become the first team where the defense hasn't given up a TD in the first three games since the 1937 Bears.
The only Jets scores came on a muffed punt return that was recovered in the end zone for six points and a Jarrett Stidham pick-six throw.
Brady finished 28-for-42 passing, 306 yards and two TDs.
Josh Gordon caught six passes for 83 yards. Julien Edelman led with seven catches before leaving with a rib injury. Phillip Dorsett and Rex Burkhead both caught six balls.
Brady moves into second place all-time in touchdown throws with 522. Only Peyton Manning has more.
