A three-time All-Pro, Gronkowski finished the regular season with 69 catches for 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns. No one has ever done it a couple of times. He caught six passes for 40 yards and ran 26 times for 93 yards. The Pats offense sputtered throughout, leaning heavily on Dion Lewis to create yards. He had 1,110 yards from scrimmage this season and 10 total touchdowns, including a kickoff return.

The last game of the regular season for the Patriots is extremely important because they could lock up the number one seed in the AFC.

To reach this point, the Patriots have overcome season-ending injuries to Julian Edelman, Dont'a Hightower and Marcus Cannon, extended absences from Chris Hogan, Rex Burkhead and Kyle Van Noy, and early-season defensive meltdowns that led to loud, strong messages from coaches and captains.

New England has defeated NY in four straight meetings, and the Patriots (13-3) haven't lost to the Jets (5-11) at home during the regular season with Tom Brady starting since 2006.

The report also said the thermometers were placed behind the Jets' bench, but not New England's.

They won the coin toss and elected to receive, going away from their typical decision to defer until the second half.

After the Jets went 57 yards in 7 plays, including long gains from WR Jermaine Kearse and RB Bilal Powell, K Chandler Catanzaro split the uprights from 48-yards.

That included a second-quarter reverse that had Brady out on the edge blocking a Jets defender as Brandin Cooks came around the corner. At game time, the temperature was 13 degrees with a -2 wind chill.

Gostkowski's 21-yard field goal extended the margin to 24-3 in the third quarter, and Eric Lee's fourth-quarter safety made it 26-6.
