EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 left in overtime to lift the New York Jets to a 30-27 victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday.
Folk got a second chance after he missed a 56-yarder moments earlier. But Chris Jones was called for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate forward to try to block the kick, a new NFL rule.
New York, given new life, ran the ball three times to set up Folk's winner.
Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass and ran for another score as the Jets (4-3) topped Tom Brady and the Patriots (5-2). New England tied it at 27 with 16 seconds left in regulation on Stephen Gostkowski's 44-yard field goal.
New England had defeated New York in six straight regular-season meetings, and saw its 12-game winning streak against the AFC East end.
