The Patriots dominated the Jets by forcing 4 turnovers and 5 sacks. New England jumped to 3-0 lead in the first quarter after Tony Franklin made a 33-yard field goal. Then after New York scored on quarterback Ken O'Brien's 11-yard touchdown pass to running back Johnny Hector, Franklin kicked his second field goal for 41 yards. Late in the second quarter, safety Fred Marion intercepted a pass from O'Brien to set up Tony Eason's 36-yard touchdown pass to Stanley Morgan, giving New England a 13-7 lead before halftime. In the third period, Franklin made a 20-yard field goal. On the ensuing kickoff, Hector was stripped by Johnny Rembert, who then picked up the fumble and returned it 15 yards for a touchdown. Pat Ryan connected with Mickey Shuler to bring the Jets within 9, but Franklin later made his fourth field goal of the game, a 26-yarder, during the final period.
