Live Updates: Patriots vs Jets

FINAL: Patriots 30, Jets 27. Cam Newton leads a game-winning drive for the Patriots. Needing just a field goal, Newton completes a massive 20-yard pass to Jakobi Meyers, leaving just two seconds on the clock. And Nick Folk is good from 51 yards, giving the Patriots a walk-off three-point victory.

Q4, 1:57: We’re all tied up. Cam Newton takes three shots to punch the ball into the end zone, and finally gets there on third-and-goal. The Patriots have tied the game 27-27. But the Jets offense gets the ball back with a chance for one more big drive. Damiere Byrd set up the short touchdown with a nice catch-and-run where he nearly scored himself.

Q4, 5:00: Jakobi Meyers appeared to make a big catch over the middle, but the replay showed that the ball hit the ground. The catch is likely to be overturned.

Q4, 6:00: J.C. Jackson redeems himself? This time Flacco’s bomb is ill-advised, as the receiver does not have Jackson beat and it sails over his head and into the hands of the Patriots cornerback. Jackson has had a bad night overall, but may have come up with the big play the Patriots defense has needed for 54 minutes.

Q4, 6:04: Patriots end up with the field goal anyway. Nick Fol is good from 29 yards. The Patriots are still down 27-20, though, and their defense hasn’t had many big plays all night. We’ll see if they can come up with one in a key situation here.

Q4, 7:53: The Patriots were about to kick another field goal, but the Jets inexplicably (tanking?) had 12 men on the field. So the Patriots get first-and-goal.

Q3, 0:30: Flacco and the Jets have burned the Patriots’ secondary yet again. This time it’s a totally busted coverage as Perriman makes it to the end zone all alone, and taps his toes in bounds after the easy catch. The Jets are up 27-17 and embarrassing the Patriots defense tonight.

Q3, 7:27: Patriots cap a nice long drive with a touchdown. Rex Burkhead touches the ball six times on a 13-play touchdown drive, including two third-down conversions to go with the score. The Patriots are still firmly in this game, but it’s 20-17 Jets.

Q2, 0:25: Ouch. Jets go 77 yards on three plays in 20 seconds, including a defensive pass interference flag on Jason McCourty that went for 42. Joe Flacco then hit Jamison Crowder in the end zone. The receiver just barely got both feet in bounds on the catch, which was initially ruled incomplete then overturned to a TD. Patriots about to hit halftime down 20-10.

— Q2, 0:56: The Patriots have to settle for a field goal after a late drive stalls out. An illegal shift by Jakobi Meyers made it first-and-15 and they couldn’t recover. But Nick Folk’s field goal is good and it’s 13-10 Jets.

Q2, 4:33: Jets settle for another field goal, but the Jets continue to make plays on the Patriots defense. Just after getting the ball off a midfield turnover, Joe Flacco hits TE Ryan Griffin for 23 yards. Flacco nearly had another long touchdown, but this time J.C. Jackson has tight coverage on Denzel Mims. Jets got close enough for a field goal to make it 13-7.

Q2, 6:13: The Patriots’ potential response drive comes up short. On fourth-and-1, Josh McDaniels calls a shotgun handoff to James White. The play is immediately blown up and White fumbles, forcing Shaq Mason to just fall on it. Patriots turn it over on downs already trailing.

Q2, 9:59: The Jets make the biggest play of the night so far to go back on top. Joe Flacco hits Breshad Perriman deep for a 50-yard touchdown. Perriman got behind J.C. Jackson again, and this time Jackson can’t make the play.

Q2, 13:07: Good drive by former Patriots linebacker Harvey Langi, who chased down Damien Harris in the flat on a second-down run then read Cam Newton’s eyes before wrapping up James White for a third-down stop. Jets get off the field quickly and get the ball back to their Joe Flacco-led offense.

Q1, 0:22: Patriots get their first defensive stop of the night. With the current makeup of the Pats’ defensive roster, the secondary is going to need to help with tackling ballcarriers more than usual. That’s why Jason McCourty had to be ready for his nice open-field tackle on Jets receiver Denzel Mims behind the line to gain.

Jets forced to punt, but they pin the Patriots at their own 7-yard line. Let’s see what Cam Newton has for the first unscripted drive.

Q1, 3:41: Patriots score a touchdown on their first drive to go up 7-3. The biggest play of the drive was a 33-yard hookup between Cam Newton and receiver Jakobi Meyers. Newton finished the drive off with a five-yard run to the right.

Q1, 8:37: The Jets settle for a field goal after a good-looking opening drive. The Jets converted twice on third down on the drive, once with Frank Gore breaking free from Tashawn Bower and again with Joe Flacco completing to Breshad Perriman. Flacco took a shot at the end zone on the next third down, but J.C. Jackson broke up the pass after Perriman had him beat. Jackson made a nice play to get a hand on the ball and save the touchdown. But the Patriots are now trailing the Jets 3-0.

— Patriots won the toss and deferred their choice to the second half. Jets will receive to begin the game.

— The Patriots elevated two players to the main roster from the practice squad for the first time this season: WR Kristian Wilkerson and LB Terez Hall. Wilkerson will wear No. 17 for the Patriots, while Hall will wear No. 59.

— The Patriots’ inactives are out. Six of them were already known: WR N’Keal Harry, RB J.J. Taylor, CB Stephon Gilmore, DT Lawrence Guy, LB Ja’Whaun Bentley, and TE Dalton Keene. No surprise in the sixth spot, as QB Brian Hoyer will sit. This means kicker Nick Folk is active after being listed as questionable.

Here are the Jets’ inactives:
