They will finish the 2017 season in New England Sunday when they take on Tom Brady and the Patriots, which means they will likely end the calendar year and regular season with a loss.

The Patriots' struggles did not matter, though, because the Jets were inept on offense and the defense made several crucial penalties to aid the Patriots.

New England grabbed a 14-3 lead in the second quarter after Jets penalties kept the Patriots' drive going. With White, Burkhead and Gillislee all inactive Sunday, it's just Dion Lewis, Brandon Bolden and FB James Develin available at the position in a game that the Patriots must win to secure home field throughout the playoffs. He was not targeted in the game. Linebacker James Harrison, just signed after being released by the Patriots, had two sacks in his Patriots debut.

The touchdown catch by Lewis was his second touchdown of the game after he had a rushing touchdown in the first quarter to give the Patriots a 7-0 lead.


Then just before halftime, NY cornerback Juston Burris was flagged for defensive holding on a Patriots' third-down pass attempt. Brady hit Brandin Cooks for a 5-yard touchdown. He went 19-for-36 for 232 yards on a day the Jets went 0-for-12 on third downs.

Patriots: LB Elandon Roberts was shaken up on a play in the third quarter. The Patriots will retain the No. 1 seed based on head-to-head tiebreaker. NY players filed past on their way to and from the field before the game. He finished the regular season with 4,577 passing yards and 32 touchdown passes with eight interceptions.

The Eagles were shut out for the first time since the regular-season finale in 2010. They had a playoff games that was colder - a divisional round game against the Tennessee Titans on January 10, 2004, when it was 4 degrees with a wind chill that made it feel like minus 10.
