FINAL: Patriots 30, Jets 27 – Newton, New England score 13 points in 4th to edge Jets

(Adam Richins for BSJ)

Well, that was ... something.

The Patriots scored the game's final 13 points — a field goal that took 9:26, a 77-yard TD drive after a Joe Flacco interception by JC Jackson, and then a 51-yard game-winning field goal as time expired — to comeback and defeat the winless Jets.

The Patriots are now 3-5. The Jets, 0-9.

Monster game for Jakobi Meyers, as he caught 12 of 14 passes for 169 yards.

Newton finished a very conservative 27 of 35 for 274 yards and he ran for two scores.

After their third-quarter TD, the Jets had two possessions for a combined 1 minute, 15 seconds.

Jets had three possessions total in second half for 7:21, 15 plays and 78 yards.
