The Jets snapped their five-game losing streak to New England on Sunday in most unusual fashion.

Nick Folk kicked a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 remaining in overtime to give the Jets a 30-27 victory. Folk initially missed a 56-yard field goal – his first miss of the season – but was bailed out when defensive tackle Chris Jones was penalized 15 yards for pushing one of his teammates into a Jet along the line.

The Jets (4-3) took advantage of their second opportunity and beat the Patriots for the first time since the AFC Divisional playoff after the 2010 season. The Patriots fell to 5-2 as Folk kicked his third game-winning field goal of the year. Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith led his fourth game-winning drive in the fourth quarter or overtime this season.

The Patriots got the ball first in overtime but gained just 16 yards and punted underscoring the Jets’ strong showing on defense after halftime.

The Jets surged in the third quarter but didn’t score in the fourth when the Patriots got two field goals to send the game to overtime tied at 27. The final field goal a 44-yarder by Stephen Gostowski with 16 seconds remaining came after Patriots quarterback Tom Brady started on a drive on his own 8 with 2:10 left.

In the third quarter Smith put the Jets ahead 24-21 with his feet. On third-and-14 from New England’s 24 he scrambled and stretched for a first down at the end of the run. Two plays later he juked his to an 8-yard touchdown with 4:33 left in the third quarter. Like that the Jets went from down 11 at halftime to up three.
