Jets' Enunwa takes shot at fans over attendance

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Once again, Patriots fans were out in full force despite being on the road.

At times in the Patriots’ 22-17 win over the Jets at MetLife Stadium there were “Brady, Brady, Brady” chants heard and also loud cheers when the Patriots made big plays.

With the Jets falling to 3-8 on the year, wide receiver Quincy Enunwa would like there to be more of a homefield advantage.

“It’s tough, but I know as a fan, you know, it’s hard to support when your team is not playing the way you want them to,” he said when asked how he felt about the Tom Brady chants. “I don’t blame them, but at the same time it would be great if we could have more of our fans in our home stadium.”

Enunwa finished the game with five catches for 109 yards and a touchdown in the loss.

Brady on win No. 200: Winning never gets old

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Sunday’s 22-17 win over the Jets was a special one for Tom Brady.

It was his 200th career win overall, which tied Peyton Manning for the most wins by an NFL quarterback. Brady reached the 200-win mark in 261 career starts, 31 fewer than the 292 by Manning.

“It’s a team sport,” Brady said. “Individual awards and things like that mean that I’ve been part of great teams with great coaches and great teammates, and I’ve had a lot of really great support over the years, so hopefully we can keep wining. It never gets old.”

It was a battle throughout as the Jets pressured Brady all game long. The Patriots trailed 10-0 and then 17-13 early on in the fourth quarter, but Brady led the Patriots on two scoring drives in the fourth quarter, the last being an 8-yard touchdown to Malcolm Mitchell with less than two minutes remaining for the game-winning score as they trailed by...

Bennett on success: 'We work [expletive] hard'

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Martellus Bennett is enjoying life with the Patriots.

The big tight end, who had three catches for 22 yards in Sunday’s win over the Jets, was knocked around a bit by New York, but he still managed to put on a smile after the game: Asked what it was like to be a part of a team that’s guaranteed to finish with a winning record — and have a quarterback in Tom Brady who captured his 200th career win — he let out a laugh.

“I wasn’t thinking about that [but], it’s a milestone for me. I’ve never won nine games in a season before. I was just like, ‘Oh, we’re 9-2! Let’s go.’ I was like, ‘He has 200 wins.’ I was like, ‘[Expletive], I haven’t won 200 games in my life,’” he said.

“I’m just happy to be in the position that we’re in, with a chance to play for something that matters.”

Setting aside the fact that Bennett has been on a couple of teams that topped nine wins — including the 2009 Cowboys, who finished 11-5 — it...

Branch addresses 4-game drug suspension

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Alan Branch was suspended four games early last week for failing a drug test, but played in Sunday’s win over the Jets because he’s appealing it.

The defensive lineman can play while the appeal is ongoing and Branch said he has “no clue” how long it will take.

“You’d have to ask the NFL. … The appeal’s in there,” Branch said. “I’m just waiting to see what happens from now.”

If Branch keeps the appeal going another few weeks, there’s a scenario where he could miss playoff games if he loses. For example, if Branch continues to play and a ruling comes out with three regular season games remaining and he loses, Branch would be suspended those three games and the first playoff game.

To avoid that, Branch could take back his appeal and immediately start serving his suspension. He hasn’t thought about that just yet.

Report: Gronk back injury 'not serious'

EAST RUTHERFORD — Things didn’t look good for Rob Gronkowski when he walked to the locker room in the middle of the second quarter of Sunday’s game against the Jets.

The team announced the injury was to his back and the tight end didn’t return.

Gronkowski was listed as questionable for the game to begin with because of a chest injury suffered a few weeks ago against the Seahawks.

He didn’t play last week against the 49ers.

According to Pro Football Talk, the back injury is “not serious.” The report adds Gronkowski is not expected to miss time beyond Sunday’s game.

“I haven’t seen Rob. I don’t know,” Bill Belichick said when asked about Gronkowski’s status after the game.
