    After the loss to the Jets a few weeks earlier, the Patriots have marked this game on their calendar. The Patriots would force a 3 and out on the games 1st possession. On the Pats 1st drive of the game, the Jets would force a fumble with the Pats in scoring position. However, the defense of the Patriots would not yield any positive yardage to the Jets offense. On the next drive the Tom Brady would drive the team downfiel and connext with Hernandez for a 5 yard TD. The Jets were unable to move the ball to a scoring oppurtunity once again. Back on the field and driving down the field, Tom Terrific would hit Gronk to make the game 14-0. After both teams had turnover on downs an int by cb D. McCourty, the offense qould add a fg and make it 17-0 at the half. The Patriots would be driving the ball on to have the drive stall to open the half. The defense was playing lights out all game. The Jets qould not be denied as qb S. Hardin hit S. Holmes for a TD. Brady and the Pats offense would add a fg. With the score 20-7, the defense was determined not to allow a late game comeback. On the ensuing Jet drive Lolb and team def mvp would pick Hardin as he tries to hit Sproles after lined up in the slot. The Patriots would hold on for the win.
