Considering the Jets lost the game by exactly seven points - and because the rule was not properly understood by the broadcast crew calling the game - this overturn will be looked at as arguably the single biggest reason the Patriots won the game.

The Jets forced a punt quickly, and the Jets drove down the field again but had to settle for a 28-yard field goal from Chandler Catanzaro to cut the Pats' lead to 24-17 with 3:40 left to play. The Jets jumped to a 14-0 lead, and it should've been larger. In the receiving end, Jeremy Kerley posted 39 yards in four receptions while Jearmaine Kearse added 38 yards and a touchdown in four catches.
The Jets punted away on their next possession, opening the door for the Patriots to build some momentum, but Tom Brady was intercepted while trying to throw deep to Phillip Dorsett. At one point in the third quarter, after being sandwiched in between two Jets defenders as he fell to the ground, Brady thrust his right fist into the ground in frustration. Then Brady started being Brady, connecting with Gronkowski for two touchdowns. New England went 63 yards in six plays to tie the game. When the Patriots needed a first down to close out the game in the fourth quarter, Brady & Co. couldn't deliver. They came within a few plays of pulling off the upset, but isn't that always the case against the Patriots? As was the case most the day, the Jets contained Brady. Had it stood, it would've narrowed New England's lead to a field goal (had the extra point been converted).
