  • Bill Belichick Laughs At Mother Nature, Wears Shorts In 9 Degree Cold

Whenever they go up against the New York Jets, it's either they completely obliterate them or it's a close game with the Patriots ultimately leaving victorious. At game time, the temperature was 13 degrees with a -2 wind chill.

As you can see in the video, Jets linebacker Darron Lee comes flying into the screen trying to head off Cooks after he takes the toss from running back Brandon Bolden. Petty was looking to improve on his previous two performances in which he had a quarterback rating of below 50. And for the first time in franchise history, the Pats (13-3) clinched the No. 1 seed while defending a Super Bowl championship. Here is the good, the bad and the ugly from the game...

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.

New England Patriots fans are going to want to mark Week 17 of the 2017 season down in their calendars as the day that Tom Brady threw a block by design on a running play.

Tom Brady threw two touchdown passes and Dion Lewis scored twice to lead New England past NY for the second time this season. He finished the regular season with 4,577 passing yards and 32 touchdown passes with eight interceptions.

Trump says Nigerians living in huts
According the sources, when Trump learned 15,000 people from Haiti had been granted U.S. visas, he remarked: "They all have AIDS". Mr Trump has tried to crack down on immigration into the USA , citing terrorism fears, but has been stymied by the courts.

In the third quarter, K Stephen Gostkowski kicked a 21-yard field goal.

Petty hasn't either and his season ended with back-to-back sacks by new Patriot James Harrison.

Belichick used every opportunity to remind the Jets of those harsh conditions by putting thermometers in the Jets' tunnel for when they take the field along with courtesy thermometers behind the NY bench.

The Jets had 25 yards rushing in the first half and only 40 net total in the game.
