On fire: Tom Brady.

Tom Brady threw a pair of touchdown passes in the fourth quarter to inspire the New England Patriots to a 30-23 victory over the New York Jets which takes them to 6-0 at the top of the AFC East.

The Jets held a 20-16 advantage with 13 minutes remaining but Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski took catches from Brady to score and stretch New England’s lead over their divisional rivals to two games.
