Jets fall to Patriots after controversial replay call

A short touchdown reception by Seferian-Jenkins was overturned by replay, with the officials ruling he fumbled the ball out of the end zone for a touchback for the Patriots. For a call that was ruled a touchdown on the field, there was very little to make that call.

Malcom Butler picked off a McCown pass with 35 seconds left in the half, and Brandin Cooks hauled in a 41-yard toss from Brady to set up a touchdown throw to Rob Gronkowski with 12 seconds left in the half. The Jets gained just 40 yards in the half after taking a 14-0 lead. The Jets held the Pats to a three-and-out on the next possession, then kicked a field goal to bring the score to 24-17 on the next drive. His first touchdown went to tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who is beginning to emerge as a legit weapon in the red zone.

See how Twitter is reacting the the Jets' lead over the Pats.

The Jets appeared to make it a 24-21 game midway through the fourth quarter, but the officials took the touchdown away after a controversial review.

Worst flashback: On a bad breakdown in the secondary, Jermaine Kearse caught a 44-yard pass on fourth down with no one around him in the fourth quarter.

Best tracking device: Tom Brady threw a flawless toss down the left sideline for Cooks, who did an excellent job to stay locked on to the pass and catch it for a 42-yard completion to the 2 near the end of the second quarter.

Detroit (3-2) travels to New Orleans (2-2), which has won two in a row after losing the first two games of the season. If the Patriots aren't leading the National Football League in giving up big plays, they have to be close. As was the case most the day, the Jets contained Brady.
