Jared Wickerham

The Jets took an early lead only to see it erased by a Patriots kickoff return for a touchdown and another touchdown on a sustained drive.

The New York Jets trail the New England Patriots, 14-7, after the first quarter of play at Gillette Stadium on Sunday in an AFC East battle between two teams with 3-3 records.

After holding the Patriots to no points on their opening drive, New York took the lead on its first drive of the game, an 11-play, 76-yard effort which was capped by Shonn Greene's fifth rushing touchdown of the season. The Jets even mixed in Tim Tebow. Tebow rushed twice for six yards on the drive.

The Patriots erased the Jets' lead on the ensuing kickoff when cornerback Devin McCourty returned Nick Folk's kick 104 yards for the touchdown. The Patriots added the only other points of the quarter after a seven-play, 58-yard drive. Despite good coverage from Jets safety LaRon Landry, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski caught a touchdown pass from Tom Brady in the corner of the end zone.
