Patriots vs. Jets score update: New England remains in control with 35-12 lead after three quarters

Following a tremendously impressive 35-point second quarter, the visiting New England Patriots took a commanding 35-3 lead into the second half at MetLife Stadium on Thursday evening.

In what was without a doubt the scariest play of the game thus far, Patriots' receiver Julian Edelman appeared to have sustained a concussion on a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit from Jets' safety LaRon Landry. Though it wasn't technically against any rules, nor did it result in a penalty, it was without a doubt an unnecessarily ruthless hit that was followed quickly by an exorbitant celebration. A sincere congratulations goes out to Mr. Landry on nearly knocking another man out cold in a 35-3 football game. You're all class, my friend. All class.

The Jets would then march the ball down inside the Patriots' 1-yard-line, where they would be halted by strong goal-line defense. On 4th-and-1 from the 3-inch-line, tailback Shonn Greene was stopped for a loss, turning the ball over to New England.

However, on the very next play, Patriots' tailback Stevan Ridley was called for a chop-block penalty in the endzone, resulting in a safety and two points awarded to the Jets. On the ensuing drive, Mark Sanchez was able to quickly lead his team back down the field for a score. Back-up running back Bilal Powell finished off the drive with a short touchdown run from just inside the 5-yard-line, cutting the Patriots lead to 23 at 35-12.
