The New England Patriots managed to cap another impressive National Football League season with their 26-6 win over the New York Jets.

10 a.m. ET: Greetings from the frozen tundra of Gillette Stadium.

Despite the dominant win over the Jets, it was not the prettiest of victories for the Patriots. The Patriots need a win to clinch home field advantage with a win over the Jets today but that doesn't mean you should pay an inflated price for New England.

Lewis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Brady with 23 seconds left in the first half.

It was also Belichick's 250th career regular-season win, moving him into a tie with Tom Landry for third all-time among head coaches. They started somewhere. Matter of fact, my Pops played with them, and they went 0-16.

"Our biggest games are ahead of us", Brady said. Since the beginning of last season, Powell is tied with Chicago's Jordan Howard for first in percentage of carries that gained 10 or more yards among running backs with at least 200 attempts. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was healthy and on the field but all but absent from the offense, with no catches. Harrison had five tackles and two sacks, both on back-to-back plays to end the game. "Well, we're playing the Jets this week", Belichick said. "Like they say, it's never easy and it's never late".

The Patriots' Defense held the Jets to just 3 points in the 1st Half and 6 points all game. The drive included a fourth-down pass conversion, one of three hookups between Brady and Danny Amendola in the series. Playoff-bound New England is again big chalk for Sunday afternoon's regular-season finale with NY in Foxboro.

New England got into the end zone three plays later via another 5-yard TD pass, this time from Brady to Lewis. Gronkowski and the NY media saw it all up close and personal Sunday.

Mark Wahlberg Reportedly Blocked 'All The Money' Reshoots Without Million Dollar Paycheck
According to USA Today and two sources familiar with the production, Wahlberg had co-star approval in his contract. Spacey was removed from the production after numerous sexual misconduct allegations against him came to life.

Parcells had a decision to make. "We went through adversity, ups and downs, but more downs than we wanted. Looking back at it now, it was a great thing to go through and stick together".

Jets rookie safety Jamal Adams is onboard with the "why not us?" attitude about toppling the Patriots in the AFC East.

"It felt good", Harrison said following the game, as transcribed by WEEI. But given the injuries he has been forced to work around, and given what these Patriots might look like without their otherworldly signal caller, there appears a legitimate chance that honor might be headed to Patriots Place on Brady's behalf for a third time. Time for NY to play spoiler as they are set to miss the playoffs for the seventh straight season. The temperature at game time was 13 and the wind chill was in single digits.

Bill Belichick, an apparent expert at all things air pressure, tried to gain an advantage when the weather turned frigid Sunday in Foxborough, Mass., for the Patriots-Jets game.

The Patriots 2017 regular season is officially in the books.

New England's postseason quest for a sixth title kicks off at Gillette Stadium on Saturday night, January 13, at 8:15 versus the lowest remaining seed (Bills, Titans or Chiefs) from this upcoming AFC wildcard weekend.

Yes, the Jets this season were a younger, made-over, and more functional team, in terms of chemistry, than last year's veteran-filled, dysfunctional bunch.

The Patriots defense is the very definition of bend but don't break.

Even after eight consecutive wins, a 27-20 loss on the road in Miami sent fans into a tizzy.
