EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -

Tom Brady threw three touchdown passes and ran for a score as the New England Patriots embarrassed the New York Jets with a 35-point second quarter in a 49-19 victory Thursday night.

After a scoreless opening quarter, the Patriots (8-3) went on a touchdown spree while taking advantage of several mistakes by the hapless Jets (4-7).

New England scored four touchdowns in just over 6 minutes - including three in a 52-second span. Julian Edelman returned a fumble for a touchdown and caught a 56-yard pass for a score before leaving with a head injury.

Shane Vereen caught an 83-yard scoring pass, Steve Gregory had a 32-yard fumble return for a TD, Stevan Ridley had a 9-yard run and Wes Welker had a 3-yard scoring grab that helped make Bill Belichick the eighth NFL coach with 200 career victories, including the playoffs.

The rout follows the Patriots dismantling of the Colts on Sunday 59-24 in a game that saw New England score three touchdowns following Indianapolis turnovers.
