Did the Patriots just start Thermometergate with the Jets?

Did the Patriots just start Thermometergate with the Jets?

Belichick, though? This is beach weather for him.

The Patriots last lost a playoff game at home during the 2013 playoffs when the Baltimore Ravens defeated them 28-13 in the AFC Championship Game.

By dispatching the Jets today, 26-6, the Patriots locked up home-field advantage for the AFC playoffs. The Pats offense sputtered throughout, leaning heavily on Dion Lewis to create yards. Cooks also drew a long 39-yard pass interference penalty that set up his own 5-yard touchdown in the second quarter for his seventh receiving touchdown on the season. He finished the regular season with 4,577 passing yards and 32 touchdown passes with eight interceptions. As of now, they don't know who they will end up facing, but it will be the lowest seeded team remaining after the Wild Card round is over.

That march concluded with a one-sided drubbing of the Jets at a frigid Gillette Stadium, where the wind chill at kickoff was minus-2 degrees. When the Jets chose to extend head coach Todd Bowles for another two years, a plethora of players chimed their thoughts to the media. Brady and the offense went to work, quickly moving 75 yards in just 13 plays to take a 7-0 lead on a 3-yard TD run by Lewis.

Gostkowski would add a 21-yard field goal in the third quarter to put the Patriots up 24-3.

Wind chills made it feel below zero, but the Patriots defense was hot for much of the game, keeping the Jets from scoring a touchdown and notching a safety in the fourth quarter.

James Harrison, signed this week after being released by the Steelers, recorded sacks on the games final two plays, forcing a fumble on his first sack that was recovered by NY. New England got into the end zone three plays later via another 5-yard TD pass, this time from Brady to Lewis.
