FOXBOROUGH, Mass. — Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and the New England Patriots held off the New York Jets 27-25 when Nick Folk’s 58-yard field goal attempt was blocked on the last play Thursday night.

The surprisingly competitive Jets suffered their sixth straight loss after taking a 19-17 lead with just under 9 minutes left in the third quarter on Chris Ivory’s 1-yard run.

Stephen Gostkowski put the Patriots (5-2) ahead to stay with his second field goal, a 36-yarder with 4:10 to go in the third. Brady’s 19-yard touchdown pass to Danny Amendola gave them an eight-point lead with 4:10 remaining.

The Jets (1-6) made it 27-25 on Geno Smith’s 10-yard scoring pass to Jeff Cumberland with 2:31 left, but Smith’s pass for the 2-point conversion was incomplete.

Ivory finished with 107 yards rushing.
