James Harrison clears up anthem confusion after Patriots win

Jets-Patriots preview

This week should have been fairly unremarkable by National Football League standards. New England will now have some time to get patched up with their first-round bye in the playoffs. Burkhead was not in the game on Sunday due to injury, but Gillislee had a handful of yards and a touchdown. The Patriots scored 26 points and won comfortably, but it wasn't a performance the offense will want to duplicate in the postseason.

Are the New England Patriots laying too many points to their AFC East rivals, the New York Jets, Sunday at 1:00 p.m. ET?

But nothing about this week, or Sunday in particular, was ordinary.

In Petty's defense it was a whopping 13 degrees in Gillette Stadium at kickoff and any extra warmth that could have been tacked on was certainly justified. Only the playoff game against Tennessee was colder. He was sacked twice and completed less than 50 percent of his throws.

"I'm planning to put hand warmers (jn my shoes) before we head over to the stadium, so I hope that will help", he said. Adams admitted after the 26-6 loss to the New England Patriots that he developed a cough, perhaps because of his brazen, pregame behavior. Last week against Buffalo, he rushed for a career-high 129 yards.

Even the special teams had a banner day. Ryan Allen was busy, though, as he punted eight times on the day and in a very impressive fashion. The fourth win came over the defending champion Seahawks, coached by Carroll, on the final play. But in the meantime, they'll get some much-needed and well-deserved rest. "We were definitely ready for it". Between his ability to gain yards after contact, to elude would-be tacklers, and to read defenses, Lewis is a lethal multi-purpose threat that stands to become even more unsafe when the returns of James White and Rex Burkhead allow Josh McDaniels to deploy him in situations that are more specifically suited to his skills (than to those of a traditional every down back). Once again he was up to the task.

"I just got here, so that's all irrelevant", he said. "I like having the ball". Usually in cold weather games, the Team that scores first wins. "For me, three games is invaluable, the experience I got, what I got to see from a quarterback standpoint of things I need to work on in the offseason".

The players and coaches all handled the conditions differently. Belichick was also spotted during warm-ups just wearing shorts and t-shirt, despite the chilly temperature.

"It's a great way to end the year", said Tom Brady. I mean, we have heated benches and they don't, but they still were here, cheering for us and being rowdy. "A lot of people said, 'Oh, it's kind of cold.' I wanted to go out there and face it a little bit - shirtless - and see where it gets me".

"I'm a sleeves guy, but we have a lot of guys out there with no sleeves". The impact, or more specifically Bademosi's reaction, was even enough to make the corner's sideline jacket fly off.

New England knows the value of securing home field - it has advanced to the Super Bowl in five of the six seasons in which it had the No. 1 seed and hoisted the Lombardi Trophy three of those times (2003, 2014, 2016).
