The New York Jets defeated the New England Patriots in overtime on Sunday, snapping a five-game losing streak.

Geno Smith led the Jets on an impressive opening drive that was capped off with a 12-yard touchdown toss to Jeremy Kerley.

The Patriots would answer on their first drive, as Rob Gronkowski had two catches for 42 yards. Brandon Bolden finished it, as the Pats offense looked impressive with their big tight end back in the lineup.

The Jets marched right back into New England territory and were poised to take the lead until Logan Ryan picked off Smith and took it back 81 yards for the 14-7 lead.

After a Jets' field goal, the Pats got a boost from a 38-yard punt return from Julian Edelman and put up another touchdown from Stevan Ridley, a 17-yard run he bounced outside.

 The Jets' Antonio Allen picked off Brady on the Pats first possession to start the second half, cutting the lead to 21-17 just like that.

Two drives later, Geno Smith converted a big third down with his arm and another one with his legs, before taking it in himself to give the Jets the lead. The Jets came out to play to start the second half and New England couldn't seem to stop the momentum on either side of the ball.

Tom Brady led a two-minute drive to set up the game-tying field goal and send the game into overtime.

The Jets forced a Patriots' punt on the first possession of overtime and drove the ball down the field. Nick Folk missed a long field goal attempt, but a penalty on Patriots rookie Chris Jones gave the Jets 15 yards and another first down.

Folk hit a 42-yarder to give the Jets a three-point win.
