Wilfork 'disappointed' in run defense

FOXBORO — Although the Patriots beat the Jets 27-25 on Thursday Night Football to move to 5-2 on the year and won their third straight game in the process — there are still plenty of improvements to be made — particularly when it comes to defending the run.

Not given any favors with the loss of Jerod Mayo to season-ending knee surgery this week, the Patriots allowed 218 yards on 43 carries to the Jets — including a 21-carry, 107-yard performance to running back Chris Ivory. The 218 yards were the most rushing yards the Jets have had in a game since Oct. 14, 2012 against the Colts.

This is something the defense is not taking lightly.

“I’€™m very stingy when it comes to the rush defense,”€ defensive tackle...

Chris Jones: Redemption 'feels good' in win

FOXBORO — Revenge might be sweet but redemption for Chris Jones Thursday night could not have tasted any better.

The Patriots defensive lineman broke through the line and blocked Nick Folk’s potential game-winning field goal from 58-yards with his left hand on the final play, preserving a 27-25 Patriots’ victory at Gillette Stadium.

It came almost a year to the day that he was called for an illegal push at the line in overtime that gave the Jets and Folk a second chance. Folk, who missed from 46 yards, didn’t miss from 41 as the Jets walked out of MetLife Stadium with a 30-27 win.

Jones may not have been thinking about that at the precise moment his left hand saved the Patriots from an embarrassing home loss but he certainly was reminded about it after the game by coaches, teammates and of course, media.

“A few people have...

Pace: 'We let [Rex Ryan] down tonight'

FOXBORO — Coming into the game with a 1-5 record — losers of five straight — the Jets were a desperate team.

Ultimately, they left everything they had on the field — having it come down to a field goal as time expired — but the kick was blocked and the Jets fell to the Patriots, 27-25 Thursday Night on the road at Gillette Stadium.

“€œIt’€™s really frustrating because this is a team you are playing your first divisional game,”€ head coach Rex Ryan said. “Obviously, these are the big dogs in our division. You know, nothing against Buffalo and Miami, they are playing well, but this team has won 10 years in a row, I think — or 10 out of 11. So, this is the one where you are trying to beat them at their place and this is like the third...

What we learned: Pats hang on to beat Jets

FOXBORO — The Patriots held on down the stretch Thursday night to pick up a 27-25 win over the Jets at Gillette Stadium. Chris Jones blocked what would have been a game-winning 58-yard field goal as time expired.

It wasn’t a pretty game, but in the end, New England did enough to hold on down the stretch. The Patriots took the lead for good on a 36-yard field goal from Stephen Gostkowski with 4:10 left in the third and held on late, building what proved to be a decisive advantage with a 19-yard touchdown pass from Tom Brady to Danny Amendola with 7:49 left in the fourth to make it 27-19.

The Jets added a late touchdown, but...
