The New England Patriots are dominating the New York Jets early on in the middle of the pouring rain. The New England defense continues to play at an exceptional level and have picked up two sacks and an interception over the first quarter.
CB Malcolm Butler collected a nice tip drill grab here:

And QB Tom Brady did the rest, quickly moving the Patriots back into scoring position before connecting with TE Martellus Bennett for a gorgeous toe-touching grab.
Catch. Toe tap. Touchdown, @MartysaurusRex! #NYJvsNE https://t.co/PRD94hMQ2f— New England Patriots (@Patriots) December 24, 2016
The Patriots lead the Jets 10-0 through one quarter and New York doesn’t appear to have an answer. If the Patriots can build up an early halftime lead, look for the back-up players to have more of an opportunity late in the game.
