Folk's 42-yard FG leads Jets past Pats 30-27 in OT
NY JETS 30, NEW ENGLAND 27

By DENNIS WASZAK Jr.
AP Sports Writer

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) -- Rex Ryan was fired up. Bill
Belichick was ticked off.

Everyone else was, well, a bit confused.

After a newly instituted rule gave New England a penalty and
Nick Folk another chance, he booted a 42-yard field goal with
5:07 left in overtime to give the New York Jets a 30-27 victory
over the Patriots on Sunday.

"I was like, `You know what? It's about time we got a break,"'
Ryan said, smiling. "That's really what I was thinking. It just
worked out."

Folk was wide left on a 56-yarder, but the miss was negated when
New England's Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct
on a 15-yard penalty that had never before been called in an NFL
game.

Referee Jerome Boger explained in a pool report that Jones was
called for pushing his teammate "into the opponents' formation."
Umpire Tony Michalek threw his flag "almost instantaneously as
he observed the action," Boger said. "We just enforced it as he
called it."

Belichick disagreed with the application of the rule.

"You can't push in the second level," Belichick said. "I didn't
think we did that."

New York (4-3), given new life, ran the ball three times to set
up Folk's winner and send the green towel-waving fans at MetLife
Stadium into a frenzy.

"It was something that we talked about probably in camp and
stuff, and it just skipped out of my mind," Jones said. "It was
my mistake and nobody else's. I've just got to man up to it and
fix it next time."

Folk thought the Patriots (5-2) might have been called for 12
men on the field. So did a few other Jets.

"I think I heard the whole stadium saying, `Please be on them,"'
Ryan said.

Then folk won it.

"Folk Hero was the man he always is, kicking game-winner for
us," Jets defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson said. "It was a
great win across the board."

It also kept Folk's consecutive kicks streak intact, giving him
16 straight to start the season.

"Yeah, we're not going to talk about that right now," he said,
smiling.

Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley and ran for
another as the Jets topped Tom Brady and the Patriots, who tied
it at 27 with 16 seconds left in regulation on Stephen
Gostkowski's 44-yard field goal.

New England had defeated New York in six straight regular-season
meetings, and saw its 12-game winning streak against AFC East
opponents end.

"Everyone has to look at themselves and do a better job," Brady
said, "because what we're doing now isn't good enough."

Brady opened overtime with a 16-yard pass to Rob Gronkowski,
making his season debut. But the Jets stopped forced New England
to punt.

Gronkowski almost made a one-handed grab late in regulation when
he had a clear lane into the end zone. Gronkowski, who missed
the first six games after having offseason surgery on his back
and broken left forearm, had eight catches for 114 yards.

"I'm still mad about that one," Gronkowski said.

Brady threw a 17-yard TD pass to Kenbrell Thompkins with 5
seconds left to beat previously unbeaten New Orleans last week -
leaving defensive coordinator Rob Ryan grimacing on the
sideline. This time, Rob's twin brother walked off the field
celebrating a win.

It was the second time in three games Brady was held without a
touchdown pass, both losses. Brady finished 22 of 46 for 228
yards and had an interception returned 23 yards for a touchdown
by Antonio Allen.

"That was huge," Smith said.

Smith, who threw three fourth-quarter interceptions in a Week 2
loss at New England, was 17 of 33 for 233 yards. He had a
first-quarter interception returned 79 yards for a touchdown by
rookie Logan Ryan that appeared to set the tone for an ominous
afternoon for Smith.

Smith rebounded and gave the Jets a 24-21 lead in the third
quarter on an 8-yard run that left the crowd chanting "GEE-NO!
GEE-NO!"

"I'm never going to crumble," Smith said. "No matter what
happens. You know, that's just not in me."

On third-and-14 from the 24, Smith took off left and was met by
Marquice Cole, who slammed into the quarterback. But Smith
reached out as he was going down and got the first down.

He again had all receivers tied up two plays later when he
sprinted to his right, faked out Cole with a nice shake move and
dived into the corner of the end zone.

The Jets, in a 21-10 hole, opened the second half by immediately
putting pressure on Brady and getting a score out of it. Brady
threw for Gronkowski and Allen stepped in front. He did a diving
somersault into the end zone just 33 seconds into the third
quarter.

Stevan Ridley had given the Patriots a 21-10 lead with a 17-yard
run on which he bounced outside right tackle and scored
untouched. The drive was set up by a 38-yard punt return by
Julian Edelman.

NOTES: Brandon Bolden had a 1-yard TD run for the Patriots. ...
Kerley caught eight passes, six of them for first downs on
third-down plays. ... Chris Jones and Chandler Jones each had
two sacks for the Patriots. ... Logan Ryan's INT marked the 34th
straight game in which New England has forced a turnover, the
longest active streak in the NFL.
