Foxboro, MA (Sports Network) - After Stephen Gostkowski kicked a field goal in
overtime, Rob Ninkovich sealed a 29-26 win for the New England Patriots over
the New York Jets.
On 2nd-and-10, Mark Sanchez was sacked by the linebacker, who jarred the ball
loose and dove on it to give New England the victory.
Trailing by three with less than two minutes remaining in the game, Tom Brady
completed four passes to move the Patriots into field goal range for
Gostkowski, who nailed a 43-yard field goal as the game clock expired to send
the game to OT.
Brady threw for 259 yards and two touchdowns on 26-of-42 efficiency to help
the Patriots (4-3) take over sole possession of first place in the AFC East.
The Jets (3-4) trailed by 10 points after three quarters, but Sanchez led New
York to scores on all three of its possessions in the fourth to put them on
top late in regulation. He completed 28-of-41 passes for a season-high
328 yards while throwing for a touchdown and an interception in the setback.
