Patriots Score in All Three Phases, Talk 16-10 Halftime Lead over Jets

The Patriots scored in all three phases of the game in the first half against the Jets, and are taking a 16-10 lead into the second half.

It's been a game of variety for the Patriots in the first half against the New York Jets. New England takes a 16-10 lead into halftime, and they have scored in all three phases: on offense, on defense, and on special teams.

The Patriots' only score of the second quarter was a safety. Shonn Greene and Mark Sanchez fumbled a handoff exchange due to an incoming Vince Wilfork. Sanchez' only choice was to kick the ball out of the end zone and give up the two points.

New England continued strong defensive play in the quarter, with rookie cornerback Alfonzo Dennard coming up with an interception on a Mark Sanchez under thrown deep pass.

On offense, the Patriots couldn't muster much in the quarter. They didn't have any three and outs, but yet again, can't seem to finish out drives. Tom Brady and his receivers haven't been able to get on the same page for most of the game. And while the running game is improved over last week, it's still not anywhere close to what it was against the Bills and Broncos.

The Jets closed out the first half with a long field goal by Nick Folk to cut the score to 16-10. They'll get the ball to start the second half.
