These are the five keys to the victory of the Patriots, this Sunday at Gillette Stadium:

The return

When the game seemed destined to go into overtime, Marcus Jones he made the game-changing play: an 84-yard punt return with five seconds left.

It was the first touchdown on a punt return so far this season and the third since 1994 within the last 30 seconds of the fourth quarter.


For the second game in a row (and third of the season), the Patriots’ defense allowed just one field goal.

The Jets offense went 3 of 14 on third downs (New England 4 of 15) and had just 103 total yards, the fewest New England has allowed since the 105 they allowed against the Jets on Sept. 2019.

New York averaged 2.1 yards per play.

Nothing from Zach

The young Jets sophomore quarterback was 9-of-22 for 77 yards, the second fewest of his young career.

Only in that game against New England, on October 24, 2021, did he pass for fewer yards: 51.

This was the First time in history of the Jets who lose a game without allowing a touchdown and without committing any turnovers.

New England’s sophomore quarterback completed 85.2 percent of his passes (23-of-27) for 246 yards and for the second straight game he didn’t have an interception.

As the Patriots’ starter, Jones has a 14-10 record.

Rushing Pats

To complement that terrific defensive display, the Patriots’ run offense generated 99 yards, 65 of them from Damian Harris and another 26 of rhamondre stevenson.

Harris averaged 8.1 yards per attempt, and his performance included a 30-yard run.

Stevenson was also Jones’ most reliable target in the passing game, with six receptions for 56 yards.

In Week 12, the Patriots visit the Minnesota Vikings the night of thanksgiving and the Jets host Justin Fields and the Chicago Bears, next Sunday.
