Offenses sluggish in Patriots' 13-10 win over Jets

FOXBORO, Mass. — Tom Brady threw a 39-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Dobson  on the game's first series before both offenses played as sloppily as the second-half weather, and the New England Patriots got by the New York Jets 13-10 on Thursday night.

Brady had trouble connecting with his rookie-filled receiving corps, while Jets rookie Geno Smith was repeatedly sacked when he took too much time to throw.

The Patriots (2-0) managed just nine first downs and 234 yards after leading the NFL in points and yards last season.

The Jets (1-1) cut the lead to 13-10 on Bilal Powell's 3-yard touchdown run with 5:05 left in the third quarter. But Smith threw three interceptions in the fourth quarter, two to Aqib Talib and one to Alfonzo Dennard.

Dobson starred for Marshall University, while Smith was a standout at West Virginia University.
