(Foxboro, MA) -- Tom Brady and the Patriots struggled during a sloppy, rainy "Thursday Night Football" game and held on to beat the Jets 13-10 in Foxboro. Brady finished 19-of-39 for 185 yards and a touchdown for New England, which improved to 2-0. The Pats were held to 54 yards on the ground on 24 rushes. Jets head coach Rex Ryan says they made it too easy for Tom Brady.
Julian Edelman hauled in 13 receptions for 78 yards while Aaron Dobson had the TD grab. Geno Smith was 15-of-35 for 214 yards and three interceptions for New York, which dipped to 1-and-1. Bilal Powell ran for 48 yards and the lone score for the Jets. New York offensive linemen Willie Colon and D'Brickashaw Ferguson were ejected with under a minute left after tempers flared following a late penalty by Jets center Nick Mangold.
