The Patriots managed to rally, getting a game-tying field goal from Stephen Gostkowski as time expired in regulation, and a game winning field goal in overtime (do those count as “clutch” kicks, or not?) and the defense made a big play in overtime to seal the game for the Patriots.

Following another game in which the New England Patriots nearly squandered a lead in the fourth quarter, Tom Brady finds himself wondering if the expectations among Patriots fans may be too high. Considering they entered the season with one of the easier schedules in the league, it is surprising that the Patriots needed a win over the Jets to crawl over .500. When asked about his...
