The Patriots featured several key additions: Brandon LaFell, Darrelle Revis, and Brandon Browner (even though he was suspended for the first four games). After forcing a Patriots three and out, Chris McCain blocked the punt by Ryan Allen with Jason Trusnik recovering at the Patriots 15. Four plays later, Lamar Miller scored on a 4 yard touchdown pass from Ryan Tannehill, for a 7 0 Dolphins lead. The Patriots responded, marching 80 yards in 13 plays, with Shane Vereen tying the game on a 2 yard run. On the third play of the Dolphins next drive, Mike Wallace was stripped by Jamie Collins with Jerod Mayo recovering at the Dolphins 35. The Dolphins defense stiffened, and held New England to a 47 yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski. The Dolphins responded by driving all the way to the Patriots 37, but Alfonzo Dennard intercepted Tannehill at the Patriots 6 yard line. The Patriots proceeded to march 94 yards in 11 plays, aided by a 44 yard bomb from Tom Brady to Julian Edelman, culminating with Brady finding Rob Gronkowski on a six yard touchdown pass giving the Patriots a commanding 17–7 lead midway through the second quarter. After reaching their own 47, the Dolphins turnover woes continued with Logan Ryan stripping Miller and Darrelle Revis recovering at the Patriots 34. The Dolphins defense stiffened and the Patriots punted. The Dolphins answered with a drive deep into Patriot territory, but had to settle for a 38 yard field goal from Caleb Sturgis, trimming the score to 17 10 with 1:59 to go in the half. A 30 yard kickoff return by Patrick Chung and a 33 yard catch by Edelman, helped the Patriots reach the Dolphins 27 where Gostkowski drilled a 45 yard field goal, giving the Patriots a 20 10 at halftime. The second half was a different story entirely. The Dolphins stormed all the way to the Patriots 6 yard line on their first possession, but the Patriots defense clamped down and held the Dolphins to a 24 yard field goal to trim the lead back to 7. On the fourth play of the Patriots next drive, Brady was strip sacked by Cameron Wake with Louis Delmas recovering at the Patriots 34. Four plays later Tannehill found Wallace for a 14 yard touchdown pass to tie the game midway through the third quarter. Following a Patriots three and out, the Dolphins were set up with good position at their own 47. They reached the Patriots 3, but once again the Patriots clamped down and Sturgis booted a 21 yard field goal, regaining the lead for the Dolphins, 23–20. It only got worse for New England. Early in the fourth quarter, facing a 3rd and 9 at the Dolphins 44, Brady had his best pocket of the 2nd half, but overthrew an open Edelman and the Patriots punted. The Dolphins pulled away on their next drive, methodically marching 85 yards in 12 plays, converting three third downs, with Moreno rushing for a 4 yard touchdown, increasing the Dolphins lead to 30 20 with just 3:29 remaining in the 4th quarter. Any hope of a Patriots comeback died on their next possession when Brady was sacked by Anthony Johnson on 4th and 10. The Dolphins didn't get a first down, but Sturgis' 27 yard field goal, his 4th, was good and the Dolphins led 33 20. The Patriots drove deep into Miami territory in the final seconds, but turned the ball over on downs. The loss was the Patriots first to open a season since losing 31–0 to the Buffalo Bills in 2003. Tom Brady was sacked four times, losing two fumbles and finishing the day completing only 29 of 56 pass attempts, including 14/35 in the second half, for 249 yards and 1 touchdown. Edelman had 95 yards on just 6 catches, but Brandon LaFell, the new deep threat, didn't have a single catch. The Patriots defense played well in the first half, forcing three turnovers and holding the Dolphins to just ten points, but allowed 23 points and forced no turnovers in the second half. Ryan Tannehill was efficient, 18 of 32 for 178 yards, 2 touchdowns, and 1 interception. Moreno ran for 134 yards, including 91 yards in the 2nd half, and the Dolphins as a team rushed for 191 yards and out gained the Patriots in total yards in the second half, 222 67.

The Vikings took the ball and marched right down the field 80 yards in just 7 plays, with Cassel finding Matt Asiata on a 25 yard touchdown pass for a 7 0 lead just over four minutes into game. This would the highlight of the game for the Vikings. After a Patriots three and out, safety Devin McCourty intercepted Cassel at the Patriots 39 and returned it 60 yards down to the 1 yard line. Two plays later, Stevan Ridley scored on a 1 yard run to tie the game. After a Vikings punt, the Patriots reached the Vikings 30 yard line where Gostkowski gave the Patriots a 10–7 lead on a 48 yard field goal from Gostkowski. On the fifth play of the Vikings' next drive, Cassel threw his second interception, this one to Darrelle Revis at the Patriots 39. The Patriots put together a 7 play, 61 yard drive, with Brady finding Edelman for a 9 yard touchdown pass, increasing the Patriots lead to 17 7. Late in the second quarter the Vikings drove to the Patriots 30, but Chandler Jones blocked Blair Walsh's field goal attempt and returned it 58 yards for a touchdown, widening the Patriots lead to 24–7 at halftime. The Patriots reached the Vikings 43 early in the third quarter, but were forced to punt, but the Vikings gave it right back when Cassel threw his third interception, this one to Ryan at the Vikings 45. The Patriots could only reach the Vikings 28, where Gostkowski was connected on a 46 yard field goal and the Patriots led 27 7. Following another Vikings punt the Patriots stormed to the Vikings 9, but their struggling offense couldn't get in the endzone, and Gostkowski's 39 yard field goal gave the Patriots a 30 7 lead. With less than seven minutes remaining in the game, rookie Dominique Easley intercepted Cassel at the Vikings 35. Neither team did anything for the rest of the game and the Patriots won the game. Brady was efficient completing 14 of 21 passes for 149 yards, one touchdown, and no interceptions, but continued to not be the superstar that he was known to be. Stevan Ridley led the Patriots in rushing, carrying the ball 25 times for 101 yards and a touchdown. Filling in for the suspended Adrian Peterson, Matt Asiata carried the ball 13 times for only 36 yards. Matt Cassel went 19 of 36 for 202 yards with 1 touchdown, but was intercepted 4 times by the Patriots. Week 3: vs. Oakland Raiders Week 3: vs. Oakland Raiders Week Three: Oakland Raiders at New England Patriots – Game summary 9 Patriots 16 at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts Date Game time Game weather Game attendance Referee TV announcers (CBS) First quarter First quarter Raiders 3–0 Drive: 13 plays, 50 yards, 6:10 Second quarter Second quarter Patriots 7–3 Drive: 15 plays, 84 yards, 6:43 Patriots 10–3 Drive: 10 plays, 48 yards, 2:45 Third quarter Third quarter Patriots 10–6 Drive: 7 plays, 29 yards, 3:13 Patriots 10–9 Drive: 9 plays, 57 yards, 3:48 Fourth quarter Fourth quarter Patriots 13–9 Drive: 10 plays, 57 yards, 3:39 Patriots 16–9 Drive: 12 plays, 63 yards, 4:55 Top passers Top passers Top rushers Top rushers Top receivers Top receivers Top tacklers Top tacklers After back to back sub par performances by the Patriots offense, they faced Derek Carr and the lowly Raiders in their 2014 home opener looking to have their first breakout performance of the season. After both teams punted on their opening drive, the Raiders reached the Patriots 31 and struck first blood on a 49 yard field goal by Sebastian Janikowski. After both teams punted again, the Patriots embarked on a 15 play, 84 yard drive, converting four third downs, and scoring on Brady's 6 yard touchdown pass to Gronkowski midway through the second quarter to take a 7 3 lead. The Raiders punted on their next drive, and Marquette King punted only 22 yards to midfield. With the great field position, the Patriots drove all the way to the Raiders 2, but their red zone struggles continued, and they settled for a 20 yard field goal by Gostkowski, giving them a 10 3 lead at halftime. Strong defense continued in the second half. The Raiders drove deep into Patriots territory early in the second quarter, but could only score on a 37 yard field goal by Janikowski. Following a Patriots punt, the Raiders drove from their own 14, to the Patriots 37, but a false start penalty on guard Donald Penn made it 3rd and 15, and then Carr completed a 13 yard pass to James Jones to the Patriots 29, bringing up a 4th and 2. The Raiders decided to settle with Janikowski's 47 yard field goal, making the score 10 9. Matthew Slater returned the ensuing kickoff 26 yards to the Patriots 41. With the good field position, the Patriots drove to the Raiders 2 again, but were once again held out of the end zone, and increased their lead to 13 9 on another 20 yard field goal by Gostkowski. After the Raiders went three and out, the Patriots marched 63 yards culminating with Gostkowski's 36 yard field goal, increasing the lead to 16 9 midway through the fourth quarter. The Raiders, though, couldn't muster up any offense against the Patriots and they went three and out again, but the Patriots failed to put the game away and punted. In just three plays the Raiders reached Patriots territory, but two plays later, on 3rd and 7 at the Patriots 30 yard line, Carr threw an incomplete pass seemingly bringing up a do or die 4th down, but Ryan was called for pass interference moving the ball to the Patriots 6 yard line. On the very next play, Darren McFadden scored on a 6 yard touchdown run, but the score was nullified by a holding penalty on Raiders left guard Gabe Jackson. On the next play, Carr's pass attempt was tipped and intercepted by Vince Wilfork with 0:51 seconds left, which sealed the win for the Patriots. Tom Brady had his best game to date, despite being pressured relentlessly by the Oakland defensive line, including being sacked twice, completing 24 of 37 passes for 234 yards, with 1 touchdown and no interceptions. The running game struggled, with Ridley leading the team with only 54 yards on 19 carries. Julian Edelman was the leading receiver for either team, with 10 catches for 84 yards. Rob Gronkowski continued to slowly work himself into the offense catching only 3 passes for 44 yards, but also caught the only touchdown. Derek Carr had a sub par day, going 21 of 34 for only 174 yards, with no touchdowns and an interception. Both defenses were spectacular holding the opposing offense to under 300 yards of offense (241 for the Raiders, 297 for the Patriots). With the win the Patriots advanced to 2 1 and Brady won his 150th career game, 3rd most by a starting quarterback in NFL history. Week 4: at Kansas City Chiefs Week 4: at Kansas City Chiefs Week Four: New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs – Game summary 14 Chiefs 41 at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri at Arrowhead Stadium, Kansas City, Missouri Date Game time Game weather Game attendance Referee TV announcers (ESPN) First quarter First quarter Chiefs 7–0 Drive: 11 plays, 73 yards, 5:58 Second quarter Second quarter Chiefs 14–0 Drive: 3 plays, 86 yards, 1:27 Chiefs 17–0 Drive: 7 plays, 85 yards, 2:24 Third quarter Third quarter Chiefs 24–0 Drive: 2 plays, 9 yards, 0:45 Chiefs 27–0 Drive: 4 plays, 0 yards, 1:34 Chiefs 27–7 Drive: 4 plays, 81 yards, 2:03 Fourth quarter Fourth quarter Chiefs 34–7 Drive: 12 plays, 80 yards, 6:34 Chiefs 41–7 Chiefs 41–14 Drive: 7 plays, 81 yards, 3:09 Top passers Top passers Top rushers Top rushers Top receivers Top receivers Top tacklers Top tacklers In front of a crowd that set the new record for highest decibel level at an NFL Game, the Chiefs dismantled the Patriots 41–14 on Monday Night Football. The Patriots' struggling offensive line combined with Brady's accuracy issues doomed them against Tamba Hali and Justin Houston while the Patriots had no answer for the Chiefs' balanced offensive attack. Monday Night Football The Chiefs had a strong opening possession, reaching the Patriots' 46, but were forced to punt. After a Patriots three and out, the Chiefs struck with an 11 play, 73 yard drive, with Jamaal Charles scoring on a 2 yard touchdown run. The Patriots managed to reach the Chiefs' 42 yard line on their next drive but were once again forced to punt. On the Chiefs' next possession, Knile Davis powered his way for a 48 yard carry to the Patriots' 38 yard line. Next, Alex Smith hit star tight end Travis Kelce on a 33 yard catch and run to the Patriots' 5 yard line. Finally, Smith hit Charles for a five yard touchdown pass, extending the Chiefs' lead to 14–0. The Patriots once again drove into Chiefs' territory on their next drive, but again punted away. Later, the Chiefs drove all the way to the Patriots' 4 yard line, and Smith hit Dwayne Bowe at the Patriots' 1 yard line, which should have ended the half, but Logan Ryan was called for a hands to the face on Donnie Avery, giving the Chiefs one more play, and Cairo Santos booted a 22 yard chip shot field goal for a 17–0 Chiefs' lead at halftime. The Chiefs had gained 303 yards of offense in the first half, the most allowed in one half by the Patriots under Belichick. Both teams punted on their initial second half possession, but on 2nd and 7 on the Patriots' next possession, Tamba Hali, almost completely untouched by left tackle Nate Solder, strip sacked Brady and recovered for Kansas City at the Patriots' 9. Two plays later, Smith threw a quick pass to Charles out of the backfield for a touchdown, Charles' third, increasing Kansas City's lead to 24–0. On the Patriots' second play of their next drive, a miscommunication between Brady and Edelman led to an interception by Sean Smith, who returned the ball 34 yards to the New England 13 yard line. The Patriots' defense managed to keep Kansas City out of the end zone, but Santos booted a 31 yard field goal, giving Kansas City a 27–0 lead. On the Patriots' next drive, Vereen ran for 9 yards on 1st down. After being stuffed for no gain on the next play, Brady hit Vereen for a 28 yard gain to the Chiefs' 44. On the very next play, Brady hit Brandon LaFell, who broke through three defenders and raced off for a 44 yard touchdown, making the score 27–7. However, the Chiefs couldn't be stopped. Kansas City answered right back, marching 80 yards in 12 plays, converting two third and longs in the process, and scoring on Smith's two yard touchdown strike to Kelce, extending the lead to 34–7, and killing any hope of a Patriots' comeback. On the ensuing Patriot drive, facing a 3rd and 4 from their own 26, Husain Abdullah intercepted a Brady pass and returned it 39 yards for a touchdown, giving the Chiefs a 41–7 lead. Abdullah fell to his knees in a Muslim prayer, and was flagged for unnecessary roughness. This caused controversy as many thought it was for his praying. With the deficit an insurmountable 41–7, Brady was benched and rookie Jimmy Garoppolo stepped in. Garoppolo completed 3 passes on the drive: a 5 yard pass to Edelman, a 37 yard screen to LaFell, then a 13 yard touchdown pass to Rob Gronkowski, for a 41–14 score. After both teams punted, the Chiefs ran out the rest of the clock to end the game. Jamaal Charles was the main weapon of the Chiefs' offense, totaling 108 yards from scrimmage (92 rushing, 16 receiving) and three touchdowns. Knile Davis ran the ball 16 times for 107 yards. Alex Smith was 20/26 for 236 yards, 3 touchdowns, and no interceptions. The Chiefs forced three turnovers and converted them into 17 points while committing no turnovers themselves. Brady completed 14 of 23 passes for a pedestrian 159 yards, 1 touchdown and 2 interceptions while being sacked 3 times. Brandon LaFell was the sole offensive star for the Patriots, catching 6 passes for 119 yards and a touchdown. The 27 point margin of defeat represented the second largest loss for the Patriots in the Bill Belichick era (the Patriots' worst loss was a 31 point loss (31–0) to the Bills in Week 1 of the 2003 season). With the loss, the Patriots' record dropped to 2–2. In his regular press conference the ensuing Wednesday, when asked about the loss (primarily by Albert Breer), Belichick replied several times with his now famous line, 'We're on to Cincinnati.' The Patriots would proceed to win ten of their final twelve regular season games, clinch the #1 seed, win the AFC Championship, and win the Super Bowl, making that quote a piece of Patriots lore. Following their Super Bowl victory over the Seahawks, several Patriots players, including Brady himself, pointed to this game as the turning point in the Patriots' season. Week 5: vs. Cincinnati Bengals Week 5: vs. Cincinnati Bengals Week Five: Cincinnati Bengals at New England Patriots – Game summary 17 Patriots 43 at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts at Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts Date Game time Game weather Game attendance Referee TV announcers (NBC) First quarter First quarter Patriots 7–0 Drive: 10 plays, 80 Yards, 4:57 Patriots 14–0 Drive: 6 plays, 58 yards, 2:33 Second quarter Second quarter Patriots 14–3 Drive: 10 plays, 57 yards, 4:19 Patriots 17–3 Drive: 11 plays, 50 yards, 3:21 Patriots 20–3 Drive: 5 plays, 24 yards, 0:51 Third quarter Third quarter Patriots 20–10 Drive: 1 play, 37 yards, 0:05 Patriots 27–10 Drive: 10 plays 86 yards, 5:21 Patriots 34–10 Patriots 34–17 Drive: 6 plays, 82 yards, 2:17 Fourth quarter Fourth quarter Patriots 37–17 Drive: 9 plays, 75 Yards, 3:49 Patriots 40–17 Drive: 9 plays, 43 yards, 4:21 Patriots 43–17 Drive: 8 plays, 32 yards, 4:11 Top passers Top passers Top rushers Top rushers Top receivers Top receivers Top tacklers Top tacklers After the Kansas City loss many analysts believed not only was the Patriots season over, but so was their 13 year dynasty. A wave of public criticism of the organization on national and local media (led by scathing analyses by Trent Dilfer and former Patriot Tedy Bruschi, including a disputed report before the game of a confrontation between Josh McDaniels and receiver Aaron Dobson), the Patriots faced the 3–0 Bengals, the last remaining undefeated team, on Sunday Night Football. The Patriots wasted no time against the Bengals highly touted defense, storming 80 yards in 10 plays, including Brady running for 4 yards on 4th and 1, with Ridley scoring on a 1 yard touchdown run. The Bengals responded by driving to the Patriots 29, but Mike Nugent missed a 52 yard field goal. Taking over at their own 42, the Patriots raced 58 yards in only 6 plays, scoring on Brady's 17 yard touchdown pass to Tim Wright, increasing the lead to 14 0. A 27 yard pass to Gronkowski earlier in the drive gave Brady 50,000 career passing yards, making him the 6th quarterback in NFL history to throw for 50,000 career yards. After both teams punted on their next two drives, the Bengals finally got on board towards the end of the 2nd quarter, marching 57 yards in 10 plays aided by 25 yards in Patriots' penalties, before Nugent drilled a 23 yard field goal. The Patriots answered though on a 48 yard field goal by Gostkowski, increasing the lead to 17 3. On the first play of Cincinnati's following drive, Andy Dalton hit superstar receiver A. J. Green for a 19 yard gain, but Darrelle Revis forced him to fumble with Jamie Collins recovering, fumbling himself, and cornerback Kyle Arrington recovering at the Bengals 25. The Patriots drove to the Bengals 1 yard line, but had to settle for a 19 yard Gostkowski field goal and a 20 3 halftime lead. After forcing the Patriots to punt early in the second quarter, Adam Jones returned Ryan Allen's punt 47 yards to the Patriots 37. On the first play of the drive, Dalton bombed a 37 yard pass to Mohamed Sanu for a touchdown, trimming the deficit to 20 10. However, Brady and the Pats struck right back, advancing 86 yards, aided by a 19 yard run by Shane Vereen on 3rd and 16, with Brady firing a 16 yard pass to Gronkowski, giving the Patriots a 27 10 lead over the flustered Bengals. On the ensuing kickoff, former Patriot Brandon Tate was hit by running back Brandon Bolden and fumbled with Kyle Arrington recovering and scampering 9 yards for the touchdown, widening the lead to a shocking 34 10. The Bengals responded by racing 82 yards in just 6 plays, scoring on Dalton's 17 yard touchdown pass to Green, trimming the deficit to 34 17. The Patriots kept hitting though, as they marched 75 yards in 9 plays to the Cincinnati 5. The Bengals managed to keep the Patriots out of the end zone, but Gostkowski kicked a 23 yard field goal on the second play of the fourth quarter, increasing the lead to 37 17. Gostkowski kicked two more field goals and the Patriots, who were left for dead less than a week ago, won a resounding defeat over the best team in football. Before the game, the Patriots paid tribute to Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still, whose daughter is battling cancer, with a short film during a television timeout saluting his daughter while the Patriots cheerleaders donned Devon Still #75 jerseys; the gesture and donation by the Kraft family to the Cincinnati hospital at which she is being treated, brought a standing ovation and moved Still to tears. With the win, the Patriots advanced to 3 2, making many rethink the 'death' of the Patriots. The 505 total yards of offense was the Patriots highest output of the season. The Patriots forced the Bengals into three turnovers (all fumbles) while the Patriots didn't turn it over at all. Tom Brady returned to form going 23/35 for 285 yards and 2 touchdowns and no interceptions. Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen combined for 203 rushing yards on 36 carries as the Patriots ran for 220 on the night.

On the third play of the Bills resulting possession, though, Kyle Orton was intercepted by Jamie Collins at the Patriots 39 yard line. The Patriots marched 61 yards in just five plays to take the lead on a 1 yard touchdown pass from Brady to Tim Wright. After both teams punted, the Bills lugged 67 yards in just under 5 minutes to tie the game 7 7 on a Kyle Orton touchdown pass to Robert Woods. After a Patriots three and out, Orton was strip sacked by Chandler Jones with Jones recovering at the Bills 24. The Patriots didn't gain a single yard, however, but Gostkowski was successful on a 42 yard field goal try. With 0:06 seconds left in the half, the Bills were attempting to run out the clock, but McCourty stripped C. J. Spiller with Zach Moore recovering at the Bills 42. Brady hit Edelman on a quick 7 yards pass and Gostkowski kicked a 53 yarder for a 13 7 lead at the half. After receiving the opening kickoff of the second half the Patriots reached the Bills 43 in just five plays before Brady launched a bomb to Brian Tyms for a 43 yard touchdown, increasing the New England lead to 20–7. The Bills struck right back with a 13 play, 80 yard drive in just under 7 minutes, culminating in Fred Jackson scoring on a 1 yard touchdown run. The Patriots marched 56 yards on their next possession with Gostkowski adding a 40 yard field goal to increase the lead to 23–14. After a Bills punt Brady led the Patriots down the field and, with just over 6 minutes remaining, found his favorite target, Gronkowski, for a 17 yard touchdown, but the play was nullified for an offensive holding penalty on Jordan Devey. This would prove to just be a delay, because Brady threw an 18 yard touchdown pass to LaFell two plays later, capping a 12 play, 80 yard drive. The Patriots now led 30 14 and looked to be well on their way to victory. However, the Bills wouldn't go away quietly. Kyle Orton calmly engineered an 8 play, 80 yard drive, aided by a 35 yard completion on 4th and 2, that ended in his 8 yard touchdown pass to Chris Hogan, with a successful two point conversion, trimming the deficit to one possession, 30 22. Starting at the Patriots 7, Brady converted a 3rd and 16 with a 17 yard completion to Gronkowski, and a few plays later found LaFell on a medium pass, who turned upfield and raced down the sideline for a 56 yard touchdown, increasing the Patriots lead to 37–22. The Bills reached their own 42 on their final drive, but a sack by Rob Ninkovich and an incomplete pass intended for Scott Chandler on 4th and 9 officially sealed the deal. Brady completed 27 of 37 passes for 361 yards, with 4 touchdowns and no interceptions. Kyle Orton was equally very impressive, finishing the game 24 of 38 for 299 yards, with 2 TDs and 1 INT. With 4 catches for 97 yards and 2 touchdowns, LaFell continued to be the Patriots awaited deep threat at wide receiver. Both teams struggled to run the football. Stevan Ridley ran for only 23 yards on 10 carries, while Fred Jackson ran for only 26 yards on 10 carries. Unfortunately, it was later learned the Patriots lost Stevan Ridley and linebacker Jerod Mayo to season ending injuries.

Tom Brady made his 200th career regular season start. On the fourth play of the game, Shane Vereen went completely unnoticed by the Jets' secondary, on a wheel route, and Brady hit him for a 49 yard touchdown, just 1:29 into the game. Following this, the Jets drove all the ways to the Patriots 9. On 1st and goal, Geno Smith hit Jeremy Kerley for a touchdown, but the play was nullified when offensive guard Oday Aboushi was flagged for holding. The Patriots defense kept them out of the end zone over the next three plays and the Jets settled for a 22 yard field goal from Nick Folk. After a Patriots three and out, the Jets seemed primed for a touchdown, but another critical holding call moved the Jets out of the red zone, and Folk kicked a 47 yard field goal, making the score 7 6. The Patriots went three and out yet again, but once more the Jets could only get a Folk field goal, this one from 46 yards, but the Jets took their first lead, 9 7. This time the Patriots responded this time, racing 80 yards in 10 plays to take the lead on Brady's 3 yard touchdown pass to Vereen, this one for 3 yards, to take the lead. The Jets reached the Patriots 9 for the second time, but the Patriots defense once again turned into a brick wall in the red zone, and Folk had to kick his fourth field goal of the half to bring the score to 14–12. A crucial pass interference penalty on Asher Allen on the Patriots' next drive, helped them reach Jets' territory and Gostkowski kicked a 39 yard field goal, giving the Patriots a 17 12 lead at halftime. On the Jets first drive of the third quarter they continued their clock draining strategy with an 11 play, 6:02 drive, this time reaching the end zone again with Chris Ivory scoring on a 1 yard touchdown plunge, giving the Jets their second lead of the game, 19–17. Once again though, the Patriots countered, moving 53 yards to the Jets 18, and Gostkowski banged in a 36 yard field goal, taking a 20–19 lead. The next five combined possessions ended in punts. With 10:51 remaining in the game, Tom Brady engineered a Brady esque drive reaching the Jets 4. A 6 yard false start penalty on Wright and a 10 yard offensive pass interference penalty on LaFell sent them back to the Jets 19. Following an in completion to Vereen, on 3rd and Goal, Brady rolled out to the left and found Danny Amendola for the touchdown, extending the Patriots' lead to 27–19. This was Amendola's only catch of the game. The Jets didn't give up though. Geno Smith engineered a 12 play, 86 yard drive, finding tight end Jeff Cumberland for a 10 yard TD pass to cut the Patriots' lead to two points with 2:31 remaining. However, the 2 point conversion failed and the Jets still trailed, 27–25. Amendola recovered the onside kick, but the Jets defense stepped up, preventing the Patriots from running out the clock, giving the Jets one last chance at an upset with 1:06 remaining. Starting at their own 31, Geno Smith hit David Nelson for 11 yards to the Jets 42. Next, completing a pass to Jeremy Kerley for 13 to the Patriots 45. Chris Ivory ran for five yards before heading out of bounds at the Patriots 40. After an incomplete pass, Folk came on to attempt the game winning 58 yard field with 0:05 seconds left, but the kick was blocked by defensive lineman Chris Jones, who had been called for a personal foul on a field goal attempt against the Jets the previous season which led to Folk's game winning 42 yard field goal, and the Patriots escaped with their third win in a row. Though not spectacular, Brady was efficient, completing 20 of 37 passes for 261 yards, 3 touchdowns, and no interceptions. Geno Smith completed 20 of 34 passes for 226 yards, a touchdown, and no interceptions. Vereen was the top rusher & receiver for the Patriots with 43 yards rushing and 71 receiving. It was learned shortly after the game that stalwart defensive end Chandler Jones injured his hip and would miss seven games. The Jets ran for 218 yards on the night, led by Chris Ivory, who continued to be a pest to the Patriots, gaining 107 yards on 21 carries. Chris Johnson added 61 yards on 13 carries. The Jets out gained the Patriots 423 323 and absolutely controlled the clock winning T.O.P. 40:54 19:06, but the Patriots defense tightened down when it mattered.
