CLEVELAND (AP) — Jacoby Brissett began his NFL career as one of Tom Brady's backups — and his shadow.

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have quickly become a confident and resilient team under rookie coach Kevin O'Connell and his staff, and they sure showed it in this short week.

Well, that took a lousy turn in a hurry for the New York Jets.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Zach Wilson and the New York Jets had a chance to leave Gillette Stadium in first place in the AFC East.

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Brandon Graham took a knee at midfield as most of his Eagles teammates trudged off the field in stunned disbelief that their undefeated season had been wiped out.

The New York Jets watched the film of their loss to the New England Patriots and the players were left with a feeling that gnawed at them a day later.
They didn't get blown out by their AFC East rivals — far from it.

They got off to a solid start against the New England Patriots in front of a raucous, jam-packed stadium rooting on their team to finally beat Bill Belichick's bunch for the first time in years.
NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Derek Carr's deep third-down pass bounced off Mack Hollins' hands and into the the Las Vegas bench area on the Raiders' opening possession in New Orleans on Sunday.
That might have been the Raiders’ best chance to get anything going on a miserable afternoon for Carr and coach Josh McDaniels.
Bill Belichick will appreciate reaching another coaching milestone some other time. Just getting a win was all that mattered Sunday.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — Mac Jones is back for the New England Patriots.
