Defense finds groove as New England Patriots pick up 1st win

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) — The New England Patriots struggled on both sides of the ball in their season-opening loss to Miami.

Led by their defense, they took a big step toward finding some consistency in Week 2 against the Jets.

The Patriots intercepted rookie Zach Wilson four times in Sunday’s 25-6 win at New York, their most in a game since 2019. It helped New England extend its streak without a 0-2 start to an NFL-best 20 consecutive seasons.

It’s a great sign for the Patriots as their offense continues to progress behind rookie Mac Jones.
