New Year's resolutions for the Jets in 2018

New Year's resolutions for the Jets in 2018

Once allegedly rife with vulnerability, the Patriots have again proven they're still the ones to beat by reaching an unprecedented level of dominance. It was a game that would determine home-field advantage for the Patriots, after their win in Pittsburgh the week before secured them a bye in the post-season.

Nope. New England went on to win 10 of its next 11 games, moving to 12-3, and today has the opportunity to seal the No1 seed in the AFC for the third time in the last four years.

While the Patriots now hold the number one seed in the AFC, the Pittsburgh Steelers have the same record and could overtake them in week 17 with a Pats loss to the New York Jets and a Steelers win over the Cleveland Browns. He played well, too, setting career-highs in completion percentage (67.3), passing yards (2,926), passing touchdowns (18) and rushing touchdowns (5). He's a disruptive athlete who will move around a bit and challenge more than one blocker. The play came one snap after the Patriots converted on a third-and-1 with a reverse play highlighted by Brady setting a block to spring Cooks free.

The Steelers also finished the season with a 13-3 record but they will be the No. 2 seed in the AFC, after losing to the Patriots head-to-head.

NEW ADDITION: The Patriots' defense has battled injuries this season.

It's also passed Sam Raimi's Spider-Man film to become the highest-grossing superhero origin movie ever to release. Wonder Woman won ComicBook.com's Golden Issue Awards for Best Movie , Best Fight Scene , and Best Director .

The total has gone over in 13 of the Patriots' last 17 games at home in December. The Patriots have had their ups and downs against all skill levels, but getting the Jets in week 17 is a gift for the AFC East champions.

The offense then hit a cold spell as the Jets harassed Brady and erased Gronkowski with a host of heavy coverages while he still had a full workload.

The Jets committed nine penalties for 84 yards.

The second-year quarterback has been active for only four games, including the last two, since being taken in the second round out of Penn State. He clinched the initial $3.5 million by passing 1,000 yards receiving; he had 1,084 coming into Sunday. He has four 1,000-yard seasons, tied for most in National Football League history by a tight end (Tony Gonzalez & Jason Witten). It was the 11th time this season the Patriots scored in the final minute of the first half.
