The New England Patriots are rolling over the New York Jets, but the Patriots had to dodge a bit of a bullet late. Running back Sony Michel was stuffed for a loss in the fourth quarter and defensive lineman Folorunso Fatukasi landed hard on him at the end of the play.

Michel was down for a couple minutes as trainers attended to him. Eventually Michel got up and was able to jog off the field. Rookie Damien Harris has come on in his place to get his first work of the season.

It was a grinder game for Michel, but he found pay dirt in a big way. He only managed 42 rushing yards, but he also got into the end zone three times. The Patriots are winning 33-0.
