The (12-2) New England Patriots are hosting the (4-10) New York Jets.
The Patriots have clinched another AFC East crown and a first round bye, but they’re turning their focus to clinching homefield advantage in the AFC playoffs. A Patriots victory, along with a loss by the Oakland Raiders at the hands of the Indianapolis Colts would clinch the #1 seed for New England.
The Patriots beat the Jets 22-17 after QB Tom Brady threw a season-high 50 attempts. New England came back from a 17-13 4th quarter deficit to win. The Patriots lost TE Rob Gronkowski for the season early in the game, while RB Dion Lewis was in his second game back from injury.
New England hasn’t lost to the Jets in regular time since 2010, going 9-2 with two overtime losses since falling to the Jets in the 2010 playoffs.
