Get the latest updates from today’s Week 17 season finale between the New York Jets and New England Patriots.

Today is the final game of the regular season for the New York Jets as a huge win here over the New England Patriots would give them something positive to take into the offseason. The Patriots, on the other hand, are playing for home-field advantage all throughout the NFL Playoffs as a win over the Jets would secure it.

It’s hard to believe it could happen but make no mistake about it, the Jets are fired up to not only beat their AFC East division rival but win a big game for their coach. Head coach Todd Bowles got a two-year extension this week as players will undoubtedly be excited to do whatever it takes to give him a final win in a rebuilding year.

Jets 0-for-11 on 3rd down facing 3rd&10 w/ 1:46 to play. QB Bryce Petty throws deep, too high for ArDarius Stewart.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) December 31, 2017

Patriots get a safety, which is one of the better officiating signals in any sport. Patriots lead 26-6. Pretty sure they're going to cover.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) December 31, 2017

Jets 0-for-10 on third down. It has been 21 years since they took an oh-fer, per @CBSSports

Stephen Gostkowski 21-yd FG makes it 24-3 NE. Gostkowski now 47 of 54 on FGAs in his career vs Jets.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) December 31, 2017

Lachlan Edwards punt hits inside NE-5 but bounces into EZ. It's only Lach's 4th TB this season, first in last 8 games. He's still on pace to set franchise gross, net avg records.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) December 31, 2017

Bryce Petty is 8 of 16 for 108 yards.

#Jets will punt. Again.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

#Jets will punt after Petty overthrows Sterling. Petty is now 7 of 14 for 103 yards.

Marcus Maye will not return after getting injured in the first half. #Jets #NYJvsNE

#Jets offense goes nowhere on first drive of the second half. Edwards punting. #NYJvsNE

— JetsInsider.com (@JetsInsider) December 31, 2017

Alas, Petty is warming up. It'll be Petty to start the second half. #Jets

Halftime. #Patriots 21. #Jets 3.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

Patriots 21, Jets 3 with 20 seconds left in 2Q #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

Brady to Lewis pushes Pats lead to 21-3. 20 seconds before halftime. #Jets #NYJvsNE

— JetsInsider.com (@JetsInsider) December 31, 2017

That is the 5th penalty of the day for the Jets #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

Petty was 4 of 5 for 83 yards. He’s now 5 of 10 for 97 yards.

Jets are 0-for-5 on third down #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

Pats again with the rub route, Claiborne and Skrine collide and Cooks gets free. 14-3. #NYJvsNE

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) December 31, 2017

Maye has an ankle injury. Return questionable. #Jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

Marcus Maye is hurt #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

Penalties are killing the #Jets defense. Pats now have the ball at the Jets 14. #NYJvsNE

— JetsInsider.com (@JetsInsider) December 31, 2017

Bryce Petty has given the #Jets no reason to take him out. Playing well, and #Jets in the game. Makes the Hackenberg decision interesting as second half approaches.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

Brady goes down for the third time today, forcing another #Patriots punt.

This one goes to Xavier Cooper. #NYJvsNE pic.twitter.com/Hv1ke1NjPO

— New York Jets (@nyjets) December 31, 2017

And Brady goes down. #Jets sack him. Another three-and-out for New England. #NYJvsNE

— JetsInsider.com (@JetsInsider) December 31, 2017

Jets defense is dancing, but I think they are just trying to stay warm today #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

Catanzaro 40-yard FG is no good #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

The #Jets need to stop giving the ball to JoJo Natson.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

The Jets are attacking the perimeter. Evidently, they see that as the weak spot of the NE defense. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 31, 2017

Petty 4 of 5 for 83 yards. #jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

Tight window and the Jets get an additional 15. Petty with the rope to Sterling and #Jets back in plus-territory. #NYJvsNE

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) December 31, 2017

One down, three to go. #NYJvsNE pic.twitter.com/cuXzlpFM0B

— New York Jets (@nyjets) December 31, 2017

JoJo Natson has one kick return for 2 yards, and one punt for -1 yards.

Not what you’re looking for. #Jets

Jets down five offensive starters — McCown, Winters, Shell, Forte and Seferian-Jenkins. Down, 7-3. How long can they hang around? #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 31, 2017

Cat-Man is good from 48 yards out.

I’d like to be commenting on the game but I don’t have anything positive to say at this point. Do you? I guess the defense looks to be hustling…

— Joe Namath (@RealJoeNamath) December 31, 2017

Buster Skrine flagged for defensive holding. His team-leading 13th penalty (and 11th accepted) of the season.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) December 31, 2017

Claiborne is back in the game #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

Three runs for #Jets on their first drive. Punt time.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

Bryce Petty struggling to put his helmet on because he forgot how many head layers he was wearing is pretty symbolic. #Jets

CB Morris Claiborne (stinger) is probable to return. #NYJvsNE

— New York Jets (@nyjets) December 31, 2017

The Patriots march 75 yards for a TD. Quick-tempo offense had Jets on their heels. And get this: They did it without a single target to Gronk. #Jets

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) December 31, 2017

Dion Lewis rushes to the end zone for a touchdown. #Jets trail #Patriots 7-0. #NYJvsNE

— JetsInsider.com (@JetsInsider) December 31, 2017

#Patriots picking on Juston Burris.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

Patriots gashing the Jets early. No surprise. Patriots have NFL's top-rated DVOA offense. They are last in DVOA defense ratings, though.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) December 31, 2017

Juston Burris in for Claiborne #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) December 31, 2017

Morris Claiborne walks off the field under his own power. But he is heading into that injury tent thing.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) December 31, 2017

Morris Claiborne is hurt. He was dealing with an injury earlier in the week. #jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) December 31, 2017

Patriots won the toss, elect to receive. Brady ball #nyj

Jamal Adams is fired up for this one. Was just going crazy on sideline. Ran up to shout something in Demario Davis’ ear. #Jets
