In the end, it was too much Tom Brady (20-of-38, 257 yards, two touchdowns, one interception) and Rob Gronkowski (six catches, 83 yards, two touchdowns) and a questionable call by the officials in the fourth quarter that doomed them.
Brady has 1,702 yards and 11 touchdowns against a lone interception to complement his 112.0 rating on the season. Dion Lewis scored the touchdown from there.
Instead, the national football debate will center around a controversial call that wiped away a would-be Jets touchdown and gave the football to the Patriots in a 10-point game in the fourth quarter. But their last-minute comeback attempt fell short.
The Patriots and the Jets last faced, with New England winning 41-3.

ATP Shanghai Final Preview: Rafael Nadal v Roger Federer
The 2014 Shanghai champion took on one of the men who has caused him the most problems in recent years, Juan Martin del Potro. Nadal took the momentum into the next game to immediately break Dimitrov and finally end the Bulgarian's resolve.
The Patriots' second possession ended on a fumble by Mike Gillislee, who had the ball punched out from behind by Darron Lee.
NY turned that into another score. It was determined that he had essentially fumbled the ball out of the end zone, which by rule is a turnover and a touchback for the defense. According to ESPN Stats & Info, Brady has started 30 games against the Jets and this is the first time he's faced a 14-point first-half deficit. The Jets would hold the Patriots again, and had the touchdown initially stood, would have needed just a field goal to tie the game. Brady then found Gronkowski streaking across the middle and hit him on a 33-yard strike to put the Pats on top, 21-14, on the opening drive of the 3rd for the first lead of the day. Skrine almost picked off Brady early in the drive, dropping a pass intended for Gronkowski.
On the replay, it was clear the ball was knocked loose momentarily.
Gostkowski was later wide right on a 47-yard attempt - his first miss after making 12 straight. The Jets extended the lead when McCown connected with Jeremy Kerley for a 31-yard score with 12:18 left in the first half. In the receiving end, Brandin Cooks posted 85 yards in five receptions while Danny Amendola added 77 yards in eight catches.
