Patriots clinch top seed in AFC with win over Jets

Week 17 New England Patriots

3 New Year's resolutions for the Jets in 2018

If the Jets spoil today's season finale at Gillette Stadium for the Patriots, it would not only ruin their plans of home field advantage throughout the NFL Playoffs but would be a huge way to end the season on a high note.

Lewis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Brady with 23 seconds left in the first half.

The Patriots last lost a playoff game at home during the 2013 playoffs when the Baltimore Ravens defeated them 28-13 in the AFC Championship Game.

Rob Gronkowski, who played sparingly, wasn't targeted with a pass for the first time in his career and finished the season with 69 catches, 1,084 yards and eight touchdowns, so he earned $8.75 million of a possible $10.75 million in incentive-based salary.

Brady's other touchdown pass was completed to Brandin Cooks. Once the day was done, Lewis had 93 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries while picking up another 40 yards on six receptions.

The win gives the Patriots the number one seed in the AFC playoffs for the seventh time since 2003 and the third time in the last four years.

After the Patriots defense came up with a stop on the Jets next possession, New England would get the ball back with two minutes left in the half.

It was the coldest regular-season home game in Patriots history.

After the Jets went 57 yards in 7 plays, including long gains from WR Jermaine Kearse and RB Bilal Powell, K Chandler Catanzaro split the uprights from 48-yards.

The Patriots created separation late in the second quarter. Brady even provided a key block, chipping Darron Lee to spring Cooks for 12 yards on a third-and-1 reverse. At game time, the temperature was 13 degrees with a -2 wind chill.

Stephen Gostkowski hit his lone field goal attempt of 21 yards and all three of his extra points.
