The New England Patriots entered their Week 12 matchup with the New York Jets seeking to bounce back from a disappointing loss to the Tennessee Titans two weeks prior.

Following a bye week to recuperate, the team welcomed back offensive weapons Sony Michel and Rob Gronkowski, both of which wound up playing big roles on Sunday.

In the first quarter, it was the Jets that struck first, as the Patriots early game struggles continued into another week coupled with costly penalties.

By the end of the quarter, Brady went to his best targets to tie the game at seven all when he found tight end Rob Gronkowski from 34 yards out.

The touchdown was setup thanks to curious decision making from Jets head coach Todd Bowles.

In the second quarter, Tom Brady re-wrote the record books some more.

The Patriots and Jets traded field goals in the second for a 10-10 tie going into halftime.

In the third, rookie running back Sony Michel continued his career day and helped setup a go-ahead 32-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski. The  Jets quickly responded with a 38 yarder by Jason Myers. 13-13 with five to go in the third.

With the Patriots struggling to find the end zone for the majority of the game, Brady found Edelman to put the Patriots back in front for good at a 20-13 lead.

Entering the fourth with a seven point lead, Michel continued to grind out yards.

With nine to play in the game, Michel found the end zone for the first time on the day to cap off his impressive performance.

The defense handeled the Jets and Josh McCown for the remainder of the fourth, and the Patriots walked out of North Jersey with an 8-3 record following a 27-13 victory.

The win, coupled with a Steelers loss later Sunday afternoon, put the Patriots back in the two seed as they head home to face the Minnesota Vikings at 4:25 next Sunday.
