FINAL: Patriots 28, Jets 14 – Patriots’ offense wakes up to finish off season

(Adam Richins for BSJ)

FOXBOROUGH — Well, that was fun ... let's not do it again ...

Offense erupts in unusual ways: The Patriots took the opening kickoff and went 94 yards for Cam Newton's first TD pass since Week 13. Then they punted on their next five possessions ... then scored TDs on their next three, including a Newton reception from Jakobi Meyers, Devin Asiasi's first career TD, and a Sony Michel 31-yard receiving touchdown. Patriots came back from a 14-7 deficit.

Big plays from the defense: Seemed like a vintage defensive game against the hapless Jets as the Patriots got sacks (two from Chase Winovich, one from Adam Butler) and interceptions from JC Jackson and Jonathan Jones.
