PATRIOTS OUTLAST JETS AND PULLOUT WIN IN 20-10 THRILLER!!!! This was not a pretty game for either team, and it was evident for the get go. The Patriots started out on fire with Rob Gronkowski scoring on a short pass over the middle on a Jets all out blitz leaving him wide open. The Patriots put up another 3 points a few drives later after a dropped pass that would have ended up as a touchdown by Aaron Hernandez. The last touchdown was scored by Wes Welker 5 minutes before end of first half after a missed tackle by cromartie. The Jets answered with a long pass and run after the catch by Dustin Keller going into the half 17-7. The second half is when things got ugly for both teams, as the Patriots couldn't do much offensively with pivotal dropped balls on key 3rd downs. The jets took advantage on a fumble and scored on a field goal in the 3rd quarter. The Pateiots defense came up huge on 2 plays late in the game. The first was a 4th and goal on the Patriots 1 yard line, and shone Greene was stuffed in the backfield. The next was on a late 4th quarter interception picked off by Will Allen to end a drive putting Patriots up 20-10. The rematch later this season looks to be another thriller, and this time will be held in New Jersey. The Patriots are now 6-1 , and well on track, but the Jets are now 2-5 and off to a rough start. THE STORY OF THE DAY WAS SHORTLY AFTER THE PATRIOTS GAME, THE ANNOUNCEMENT CAME THAT WES WELKER WAS DEALT TO THE RAIDERS FOR a 1st and 2nd RND PICK!!!
