NFL Playoffs, Jets Vs. Patriots: Patriots Held Short, But Take 3-0 Lead

The Patriots got the ball back deep in their own territory again, and drove right down the field again.

Wes Welker, back in the game, made a leaping reception to pick up an important first down before the Jets shot themselves in the foot with a facemask penalty.

Now in Jets territory, Brady found Alge Crumpler for a big gain, but the veteran tight end dropped a pass in the end zone on a 2nd-and-5 play just eight yards out, and Brady was sacked to force the field goal. Shayne Graham proved up to the task, and the Patriots took the early lead.
