EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Tom Brady got one practice in last week before facing the New York Jets. The New England Patriots hope his ailing knee allows him to get a few more in this week before hosting the Los Angeles Rams next Sunday.Im happy the week is over, Brady said after a 22-17 victory over the Patriots AFC East rivals. It was a long week.Brady never considered not playing, despite his knee being sore and leaving him listed as questionable for the game . He was hardly spectacular, going 30 of 50 for 286 yards and two TDs, but he was good as ever in the end.Brady tied Peyton Manning for most wins by a quarterback in NFL history, getting his 200th by throwing a go-ahead 8-yard touchdown pass to Malcolm Mitchell with 1:56 left. It also was the 50th win for Brady after facing a fourth-quarter deficit or tie.The quarterbacks job is to win, coach Bill Belichick said. Hes won a lot. Thats good. Im glad hes our quarterback.The Patriots (9-2) had to play mostly without tight end Rob Gronkowski, who returned after missing last week with a chest injury but left this one with a back injury late in the first quarter.Belichick had no update on Gronkowskis condition, but the tight end was seen walking very gingerly from the locker room to the team buses outside MetLife Stadium.I havent seen Rob, Belichick said. I dont know.While the health of Brady and Gronkowski will again be a hot topic this week leading up to the Rams game, the Patriots proved a little to themselves with this victory.Weve been the same team all year, tight end Martellus Bennett said. Wherever we go, we bring the fight with us. I always say, B.Y.O.E., which is Bring Your Own Energy. When you come to a place like this, thats something we have to do. We were able to make plays when it counted.Trailing 17-16 with 5:04 left and the ball on the Patriots 17, Brady led a solid drive by completing six passes. After James White stretched for 4 yards on fourth-and-4, a 25-yard catch by Chris Hogan put the ball at the 8. Brady then zipped a pass to Mitchell to put the Patriots ahead.A 2-point conversion try by White was initially ruled good, but reversed on replay because the ball never crossed the goal line -- giving the Jets (3-8) a final chance.But Chris Long hit Ryan Fitzpatrick before he could throw, resulting in a fumble recovered by Trey Flowers.The Patriots then ran out the clock to win the closely played game that had been flexed out of a prime-time spot. The teams have had a final margin of seven points or fewer in each of their last seven meetings.Weve got to find a way to finish at the end of ballgames, Jets coach Todd Bowles said.Here are some other things to know from the Patriots win over the Jets at MetLife Stadium:BRADYS DOMINANCEBrady improved to 22-6 in regular-season games against the Jets, joining Brett Favre as the only QBs in NFL history with at least 22 wins vs. two teams. Brady has 26 victories vs. Buffalo.He reached another milestone in the second quarter when he completed an 18-yard pass to Julian Edelman, joining Manning (71,940), Favre (71,838), Drew Brees (64,180) and Dan Marino (61,361) as the only players with 60,000 yards passing. Brady is now at 60,229.Ive had a lot of really great support over the years, so hopefully we can keep winning, he said. It never gets old.MITCHELLS MARKMitchell has begun to emerge as a big playmaker for the Patriots.The fourth-round draft pick out of Georgia has nine catches for 140 yards and three touchdowns, including two against the Jets, in his last two games.Hes come through in the clutch, Brady said, so we keep giving him opportunities.FITZ STICKING?Bowles was non-committal about having Fitzpatrick remain the Jets starting quarterback next Monday night against Indianapolis.Fitzpatrick, back as the starter after missing New Yorks last game with a sprained knee, was 22 of 32 for 269 yards and two TDs.Ill evaluate everything as the week goes forward, Bowles said. Im not going to make a rash decision today one way or the other. For the most part, he did a good job.Q IS THE ANSWERQuincy Enunwa set a single-game high with 109 yards on five catches, the first 100-yard game of his Jets career.He also made a highlight-reel play when he hauled in a 22-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter, soaring above Malcolm Butler for the catch, with his right foot coming down in the end zone and then his backside, but not his left foot. It was initially called an incomplete pass, but Bowles challenged and the call was reversed.Good thing he does all those squats and got his butt down, Fitzpatrick joked.CONSISTENCY RULESWith the victory, the Patriots clinched a 16th straight season with winning record and tied San Francisco (1983-98) and Dallas (1970-85) for the most consecutive winning years since the 1970 merger.New England also has its 31st winning season since the merger to tie Dallas for second, behind only Pittsburghs 33 in that span.---For more NFL coverage: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP-NFL Terrell Davis Jersey .

The lawsuit filed late Wednesday by 30-year-old Alexander Bradley comes as police in New England investigate the death of 27-year-old semi-pro player Odin Lloyd. Lloyds body was found in an industrial park near Hernandezs home in North Attleborough, Mass. Lloyds family has said he had some connection to Hernandez but would not elaborate. In his federal lawsuit seeking at least $100,000 in damages, Bradley claims he and Hernandez were with a group in February at Tootsies club in Miami when the two got into an argument. Later, as they were driving to Palm Beach County, Bradley claims Hernandez shot him with a handgun, causing him to lose his right eye. Bradley, who is from Connecticut, also suffers from jaw pain, headaches, permanent injury to his right hand and arm and will probably need further surgery, according to the lawsuit. He has already undergone facial reconstruction surgery and has plates and screws in the right side of his face. Bradley "will require extensive medical care and treatment for the rest of his life," the four-page lawsuit says. Bradley did not mention Hernandez in a Palm Beach County Sheriffs Office report at the time. Bradley, found shot and bleeding Feb. 13 in an alley behind a John Deere store, insisted to investigators he did not know who shot him and gave only a vague description of possible assailants. A store employee found Bradley after hearing a shot outside, but the stores video surveillance system wasnt working. Hernandezs lawyer did not immediately respond Thursday to an email seeking comment about the lawsuit. The lawsuit does not mention how Hernandez and Bradley are acquainted. In another development Thursday, police in Providence, R.I., said Hernandez was taunted in May by a man at a nightclub near the Brown University campus but walked away. The man followed Hernandez for three blocks and a crowd formed, held back by police while Hernandez got into his vehicle and left. Meanwhile, in Massachusetts, family and police were mum on the nature of Hernandezs relationship to Lloyd, who played for the Boston Bandits semi-pro team. Media camped out Thursday at Hernandezs home, on thee Rhode Island state line not far from the Patriots stadium in Foxborough.dddddddddddd A news helicopter followed along as Hernandez drove in a white SUV from his home to the stadium, then got out and went inside. Patriots spokesman Stacey James said the team had no comment on why Hernandez was there. He said earlier that the team did not anticipate commenting publicly during the police investigation. A Massachusetts State Police emergency response team on Thursday was searching the brush with metal detectors and poles on a road leading to the entrance to Hernandezs subdivision. Hernandez lawyer Michael Fee acknowledged media reports about the state police search of Hernandezs home as part of an investigation but said he and the player wouldnt have any comment on it. Lloyds mother, Ursula Ward, would not say how Lloyd knew Hernandez and did not say whether police told her how her son died. An uncle said Lloyd had a connection to Hernandez but wouldnt elaborate. Bristol District Attorney Samuel Sutters office said investigators were asking for the publics help to find a silver mirror cover believed to have broken off a car between Boston and North Attleborough. On Wednesday, at least seven state troopers searched both sides of a road just off the street where Hernandez lives. The officers used thin poles to pull back plants and search through undergrowth along the road. The Patriots drafted Hernandez out of Florida in 2010. Since then, he has combined with Rob Gronkowski to form one of the top tight end duos in the NFL. He missed 10 games last season with an ankle injury and had shoulder surgery in April but is expected to be ready for training camp. Last summer, the Patriots gave him a five-year contract worth $40 million. Hernandez said after he was drafted that he had failed a drug test while with the Gators and had been upfront with NFL teams about the issue. Sports Illustrated reported that the link between Hernandez and the case was a rented Chevrolet Suburban with Rhode Island plates that police had been searching for. The Associated Press could not independently confirm the report. Lloyds neighbour Larry Connors said a black Suburban with Rhode Island license plates was towed out of the yard of Lloyds house after his body was found. Lloyd had been driving it for a few days, but Connors had never seen it before that. ------ ' ' '
