The New England Patriots have won eight consecutive meetings against the New York Jets, many of them by lopsided margins.

 

The Jets have lost all eight of their games this season, many by lopsided margins.

 

Unless New York suddenly figures out how to start putting points on the board, both trends are likely to continue when the Patriots (2-5) visit the Jets for an AFC East contest on Monday night in East Rutherford, N.J.

 

New York has mustered a league-low 94 points this season, 39 fewer than the next-closest team (Washington, which has played one fewer game). The Jets have only scored two touchdowns in their past four contests. Embattled coach Adam Gase's squad ranks last in total offense (259 yards per game), last in passing (155.9 yards per game) and last in third-down conversions (28.3 percent).

 

The Patriots haven't won a game since Week 3, dropping four in a row, and they have taken a back seat to the Buffalo Bills in the division race. However, Bill Belichick's gang still ranks 12th in scoring defense (23.9 points per game) and 14th in total defense (357.3 yards per game). That's plenty good enough to stifle the Jets, who have scored more than 17 points only once and gained more than 300 yards only once.

 

Belichick sounded cautious this week, however. Perhaps remembering two losses to the Dolphins when Gase coached there, including the 2018 "Miami Miracle," he made a somewhat surprising observation.

 

"They're a lot better than they were last year," he said. "I think they have played very competitively. The offense is improved. They get a little bit better each week. ...

 

"It's a scrappy, hard-nosed team, and Coach Gase is always a great game plan coach every week. He presents a lot of problems every week for the defense schematically."

 

Last year, New England swept New York by a combined 63-14 margin as Belichick improved to 30-10 in the rivalry. That record includes a 29-7 mark with Tom Brady. The post-Brady Patriots have lost four consecutive games for the first time since 2002. New England hasn't lost five in a row since 1995.

 

The Jets' best hope for a primetime breakthrough on Monday might be the erratic play of Patriots quarterback Cam Newton. The former MVP has eight turnovers (seven interceptions, one lost fumble) and just two touchdown passes.

 

Newton has also rushed for a team-high 298 yards and six touchdowns this season, numbers that concern Gase.

 

"The run game with him being able to do all the zone-read stuff, this is difficult when you see a guy this size moving at the speed he does," Gase said. "Our guys have to do a really good job of following the rules we're going by on the zone-read stuff because the last thing you want to do is give a guy like this that kind of hole."

 

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) did not practice Thursday but Gase said he felt "good" about Darnold playing Monday. Also missing practice were defensive linemen Nathan Shepherd (back) and Quinnen Williams (hamstring), wide receiver Jamison Crowder (groin) and linebacker Blake Cashman (hamstrings).

 

Cornerback Stephon Gilmore, the 2019 Defensive Player of the Year, did not practice for the Patriots on Thursday due to a knee injury. Also absent were defensive tackles Carl Davis (concussion) and Lawrence Guy (shoulder, elbow and knee), running back J.J. Taylor (illness) and wideout N'Keal Harry (concussion).

New England Patriots vs. New York Jets

Nick Folk booted a 51-yard field goal with no time remaining as the New England Patriots rallied from a 10-point, fourth-quarter deficit to record a 30-27 victory over the winless New York Jets on Monday night at East Rutherford, N.J.

Cam Newton rushed for two touchdowns and completed 27 of 35 passes for 274 yards as New England (3-5) snapped a four-game losing streak. Folk kicked three field goals, Rex Burkhead rushed for a touchdown and Jakobi Meyers established career highs of 12 receptions for 169 yards.

Newton's 20-yard pass to Meyers with three seconds left set up the winning kick.

Joe Flacco passed for 262 yards, three touchdowns and one interception for the Jets (0-9), who have lost nine straight to the Patriots. New York is the lone winless NFL team this season.

Flacco threw two touchdowns passes to Breshad Perriman (five receptions, 101 yards) and one to Jamison Crowder. He completed 18 of 25 passes in his third start of the season and passed Hall of Famer Joe Montana for 20th place on the all-time yardage list.

New York quarterback Sam Darnold (shoulder) missed the game after aggravating an injury he initially sustained on Oct. 1.

New England cornerback Stephon Gilmore (knee), the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year, missed his second consecutive game.

The Patriots controlled the clock for 36:58 and held a 433-322 edge in total yards.

New York ran just one offensive play in the first 13:03 of the fourth quarter to aid New England in rallying from a 10-point deficit.

The Patriots pulled within 27-20 on Folk's 29-yard field goal with 6:04 remaining, and J.C. Jackson followed with his league-high fifth interception on New York's next offensive play. Newton guided the Patriots on a 11-play, 72-yard drive and scored on a 1-yard sneak to tie the score with 1:57 left.

The Jets scored more points (20) in the first half than they did in seven of their first eight full games. Flacco tossed two touchdown passes to help New York take a 10-point halftime lead.

Sergio Castillo's 35-yard field goal capped New York's opening drive before Newton scored on a 5-yard run to give the Patriots a 7-3 advantage with 3:34 left in the opening quarter.

The Jets moved back ahead when Flacco threw a 50-yard scoring pass to Perriman with 9:59 remaining in the half. The long play moved Flacco past Montana (40,551 passing yards). Flacco concluded the contest with 40,726.

Castillo kicked a 50-yarder to give New York a 13-7 lead with 4:33 left before Folk knocked a 45-yard through the uprights for New England with 1:03 left. But Flacco finished the half with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Crowder with 25 seconds left.

The Patriots opened the third quarter with an impressive 13-play, 78-yard drive that ended with Burkhead scoring from the 1 with 7:27 left. But the Jets responded with an 11-play, 75-yard excursion that culminated in Flacco's 15-yard scoring pass to Perriman with 30 seconds remaining in the third period.
