Jets-Patriots First Quarter Score: Patriots Lead, 6-0

The New England Patriots lead the New York Jets, 6-0, after the first quarter of their Sunday Night Football Game at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

The first quarter of the New York Jets Vs. New England Patriots could be best summed up by missed opportunities. In their opening drive, Mark Sanchez brilliantly led his team down the field, picking the Patriots apart with expertise. He was unable to find a receiver in the red zone. Nick Folk had the opportunity to put the team up 3-0 but missed a chip shot from 26 yards out.

The Patriots had a similar opening drive. Tom Brady finally hooked up with Chad Ochocinco several times. The team was unable to move deep in Jets territory and had to settle for a field goal. On the second Patriots drive Brady found Ochocinco for a 58 yard completion. It Chad's biggest reception on the year. Again, the Patriots had to settle for a field goal. The quarter ended with the Jets having control of the ball and driving down the field.

Below is Chad Ochocinco's reception:
