Patriots rout Jets to clinch No. 1 seed in AFC playoffs

Patriots Ask Fans To Bundle Up For Sunday's Game

The New York Jets are in town for what will be one of the coldest football games ever played in Foxboro.

Belichick, though? This is beach weather for him.

Up Next: The New England Patriots now have a week off before having to really get things going for the playoffs, as they have secured a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the postseason. It was officially the coldest regular season game in Patriots team history. Tom Brady threw for 190 passing yards and two touchdowns. Two of those completions were touchdowns, however, and Dion Lewis ran the ball 26 times to keep the clock moving on a cold afternoon in New England.

Lewis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Brady with 23 seconds left in the first half.

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.

Sharma's look was designed by Sabyasachi Mukherjee, who also created her couture for the wedding day. The red bindi, the sindoor, the mogras in her hair just made the look more potent and powerful.

The win gives the Patriots the number one seed in the AFC playoffs for the seventh time since 2003 and the third time in the last four years. Brady and the offense went to work, quickly moving 75 yards in just 13 plays to take a 7-0 lead on a 3-yard TD run by Lewis. When the Jets made a decision to extend head coach Todd Bowles for another two years, a plethora of players chimed their thoughts to the media.

Stephen Gostkowski hit his lone field goal attempt of 21 yards and all three of his extra points.

Patriots linebacker Eric Lee would sack Jets quarterback Bryce Petty in the end zone for a safety to put the Patriots up 26-6.

James Harrison, signed by New England last Tuesday after being cut by Pittsburgh, had two sacks - on consecutive plays to end the game - and finished with five total tackles and a forced fumble.
