The Patriots got off to a quick start - going six plays and 81 yards on their opening drive. Quarterback Tom Brady found rookie receiver Aaron Dobson for a 39 yard touchdown on his first career NFL snap. Dobson was lined up as an h-back, and snuck behind the Jets defense on a wheel route off a play action. Brady connected with him for the easy score.
The Patriots also tacked on a field goal following a Stephen Hill fumble that was recovered by Devin McCourty and returned to within the 10 yard line.
The Jets have the ball to begin the second quarter.
