Try not to take too much away from that win because your team really is more like the one who won by 3 points at Gillette and not the one who won by 35 on thursday.
You eliminate the running plays and it will be a different game too. If you eliminate passes to Welker, it would have been a different game too. What is this eliminate the turnovers crap.
Turnovers are part of the game. The red zone INT was a great play by Gregory. So let's ignore it.
The Pats outplayed, outcoached, and outclassed the Jets and there is no other way to spin it any other way. You take away the points scored on the Sanchez butt fumble and McKnight kick return turnover and the Pats still win by 16 points.
