But there was Austin Seferian-Jenkins plowing through the pylon with a 4-yard Josh McCown pass, and there were these gritty, lovable underdogs and virtually all of MetLife Stadium awash in euphoria, about to close to within 24-21 of the great Tom Brady, celebrating the Touchdown That Could Have Changed Everything with 8:24 left. I'm going with what the ref said.
Seferian-Jenkins did get a hold of the ball again, but he didn't get any body parts down in the field of play before he landed out of bounds.
Brady, who finished 20-of-38 for 257 yards with two touchdowns and an interception, got the Pats on the board midway through the 2nd thanks to engineering a nine-play, 93-yard touchdown drive capped off by a Dion Lewis one-yard touchdown run. Now he has the most regular-season victories as well. For us, we have a standard we want to play by and at the end of the day we didn't play well enough.
Jets coach Todd Bowles downplayed the impact of the controversial call, saying his team had other opportunities to win.
Cong wins 73; NCP, MIM draw blank in Nanded civic polls
In 2012, the Congress bagged 41 seats, Shiv Sena 14, AIMIM 11, NCP 10, BJP two while independents notched three seats. Ahead of the municipal elections, the BJP had inducted Chavan-rival Prataprao Chikhlikar in the party.
Since the ball was technically fumbled out the back of the end zone, the Patriots were given the ball on a touchback. "But at the end of the day that's what the ref called". They gave New England a fight and that's more than most expected.
It didn't cost the Jets, 24-17 losers to the Patriots, the damn game. "I promise you, we'll get better at that, but it's just frustrating".
"I wish we'd have done better", Brady said.
Added McCourty: "We felt the ball was juggled a little bit, but I didn't know which way it was going to go". But their last-minute comeback attempt fell short. In a slow first half for New England, the Patriots were down 14-0. "It's not just the one play". McCown floated a pass over the outstretched arms of Butler and right to Jeremy Kerley, who leaped over the cornerback to snatch the ball and then skipped into the end zone untouched to make it 14-0. New England still allowed 408 total yards, but two interceptions of McCown proved costly - as did the play with Seferian-Jenkins.
By the seventh question, Seferian-Jenkins had had enough.
