By Jim Donaldson Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski, who had a bad game last Sunday in Pittsburgh, continues to struggle, pulling an almost-automatic, 27-yard, field goal attempt wide left just before halftime. The Pats, after driving from their own 9-yard line, had a first down at the New York 11 with 55 seconds left in the half and appeared about to break a scoreless tie. But not only did they fail to get the ball into the end zone, they also failed to get on the scoreboard after Gostkowski's miss from chip-shot range. Against the Steelers, Gostkowski hit the right upright with a 42-yarder late in the third quarter.
