Week 7: Pats Overpower Jets in OT
In yet another nail biting Sunday for New England, fans watched as the Patriots beat the NY Jets by the skin of their... football.
In what has become a recurring theme, the Pats barreled down the field for three quarters with impressive momentum. But as the fourth quarter rolled around, their 10-point lead was quickly diminished. The Jets reached a 26-23 lead giving the Pats final possession with 1:37 left in the game. Gostkowski came through with the tying 43-yard field goal to send the game into overtime.
NE won the coin toss and was first to receive the football in OT. They were only able to come up with a field goal for 3, giving NY a chance to tie again or win with a TD. Despite the lucky opportunity for the Jets, Rob Ninkovich was able to knock the football from Mark Sanchez's grip, effectively ending the game in Pats' favor.
Rob Gronkowski caught both NE touchdowns in the 1st and 3rd and totaled 6 receptions for 78 yards. Ridley made 17 rushes for 65 yards, and Tom Brady went 26-42 for 259 yards. Final Score 29-26 Patriots.
Ruling on the field: NO PATS 4Q TD
