Patriots take division lead with win over Jets

Tom Brady and the New England Patriots - once again -- as the favorite in the AFC East after 16.

Brady tossed for 329 yards and three touchdowns, two of which went to Rob Gronkowski, who caught eight passes for 113 yards in the rout.

The win also moved Brady and Bill Belichick past Hall of Famers Dan Marino and Don Shula for most wins by a quarterback-head coach duo in the Super Bowl era with 117.

Andre Carter recorded a franchise record 4 1/2 sacks and Rob Ninkovich picked off Mark Sanchez twice, returning one 12 yards for a touchdown in the fourth quarter to highlight New England's defensive effort.

Sanchez passed for 306 yards with a touchdown to Plaxico Burress.
