Worst coverage: Malcolm Butler tried to undercut a route by Jeremy Kerley, who caught a pass from Josh McCown and easily ran in for a 31-yard touchdown to give the Jets a two-touchdown lead in the second quarter. Patriots running back Dion Lewis ran in a one-yard score on the next play, cutting the score to 14-7. The next set of downs, they converted third and eight. The win pushes New England to 4-2 on the season.

The Jets appeared to make it a 24-21 game midway through the fourth quarter, but the officials took the touchdown away after a controversial review.

"Every time he gets mad, you know he's in the game", said Gronkowski, who missed the last game with a thigh injury. The surprise was in the fact that the lead was held by the Jets, and not the Patriots.

The CBS broadcast was baffled by the ruling, as were the fans at MetLife Stadium. Elijah McGuire was the top rusher for the team with just 20 yards in the game. New England and NY are both tied with the Buffalo Bills for first place in the AFC East heading into Week 6, so this game means a heck of a lot.

He made it back onto the field eventually, avoiding the full Stevan Ridley, but Gillislee sat out the final 19 plays of the first half after he fumbled. McCown finished with 354 yards and two scores but was also picked off twice in a frustrating loss. Helped by a 42-yard bomb to Brandin Cooks, the Patriots scored on a two yard touchdown throw to Gronkowski.

The New York Jets can be considered the surprise team of the National Football League so far with a 3-2 record and a flawless 2-0 start on their home field.

Pats that, though. New England got the break and is now in sole possession of first place in the AFC East, while Jets fans are left wondering "what if". But at least the Patriots cleaned up some of the sillier stuff.
