The New York Jets defeated the New England Patriots in overtime on Sunday, their first win against the Pats since the 2010 playoffs. 

After a flat first half from the Jets, they were clearly the better team in the second half, sparked by a defense that sacked Tom Brady four times on the day. The Jets defense forced three three-and-outs in a row in the third quarter, as New York seized the lead and hung on until it could kick the game-winner in overtime.

Geno Smith and the Jets' ground game moved the ball well in the second half and avoided the critical mistakes that they made in the first meeting in Week 2. Smith ran for a touchdown and threw for one as well.

The Jets got a fortunate call in overtime that gave them new life and ultimately the win. New England fought hard down to the wire, but the its offense just wasn't good enough.

The Pats drop to 5-2 but remain in first place in the AFC East. Here are the takeaways.
