STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Patriots playing on Thanksgiving for fifth time, going 2-2 in previous appearances. Jets playing on holiday for second time in three years and are 1-3 on Thanksgiving - but were 3-0 from 1960-62 as New York Titans of AFL. ... In last meeting, Patriots LB Rob Ninkovich forced and recovered fumble by Jets QB Mark Sanchez to seal OT victory. ... Since 2010 season, Patriots combined 18-0 in second half of regular season, including 8-0 in both 2010 and `11. ... Bill Belichick needs one victory to become eighth NFL coach to record 200 wins. ... QB Tom Brady 4-0 with 10 TDs and one INT in last four regular-season games against Jets. He's 17-5 overall vs. New York, including New England's playoff loss in 2010 postseason. ... Brady needs one TD pass to extend streak with at least one to 43 straight games - third-longest behind Drew Brees (53 and counting) and Johnny Unitas (47). He has 51 career 300-yard passing games in regular season, and one more would put him into tie for fifth place with Kurt Warner. Needs 86 yards passing to move past Dan Fouts (43,040) for 10th place on NFL's career list. ... WR Wes Welker has caught at least one pass in 104 straight regular-season games, including franchise-record 87 in row with Patriots. Needs one 10-reception game to break tie with Marvin Harrison and Andre Johnson and match Jerry Rice for the most in NFL history with 17. ... K Stephen Gostkowski has two FGs of 50 or more yards this season, and needs one more to tie Adam Vinatieri's Patriots career mark with eight. ... TE Rob Gronkowski first at his position with three straight seasons of 10 or more TDs, but expected to miss at least a month with broken left forearm. ... WR Julian Edelman became first Patriots player to score on a reception (2-yard catch) and return (68-yard punt return) in a game last week since Irving Fryar in 1985. ... Newly signed CB Aqib Talib returned INT for TD vs. Colts in debut with Patriots. ... Jets snapped three-game skid Sunday, putting them 4-6 for first time since 2009 - when they went on late run to AFC title game. ... Sanchez broke out of slump with efficient performance vs. Rams, going 15 of 20 for 178 yards and a TD - and no turnovers. Jets 2-1 this season when Sanchez has no turnovers, and 14-5 in regular season in his four-year career in those situations. ... Since top WR Santonio Holmes was lost for season against San Francisco in Week 4, Jeremy Kerley leads Jets with 30 catches, 393 yards receiving and 13.1 yards per catch. ... Backup QB Tim Tebow has been used only in limited role this season, seeing just three snaps on offense last week. ... Backup RB Bilal Powell, back from concussion, ran for first two TDs of two-year career in win vs. Rams. ... Since joining Jets in 2010, CB Antonio Cromartie has 10 INTs, tying him for second-most in AFC with Bengals' Jason Allen - two behind Patriots' Devin McCourty.
