The Jets’ Nick Folk (2) enjoys his field goal to beat the Patriots. “ ‘Folk Hero’ was the man he always is, kicking (a) game winner for us,” defensive end Muhammad Wilkerson says.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Rex Ryan was fired up. Bill Belichick was ticked off.

Everyone else was a bit confused.

After a new rule gave New England a penalty and Nick Folk another chance, he hit a 42-yard field goal with 5:07 left in overtime to give the Jets a 30-27 victory over the Patriots on Sunday.

"I was like, 'You know what? It's about time we got a break,' " Ryan said. "That's really what I was thinking. It just worked out."

Folk was wide left on a 56-yarder, but the miss was negated when New England's Chris Jones was called for an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that had never been called in the NFL.

Referee Jerome Boger said in a media pool report that Jones was called for pushing a teammate "into the opponents' formation." The rule was introduced in the offseason. The penalty cost the Patriots 15 yards.

Belichick disagreed with the application of the rule. "You can't push in the second level," he said. "I didn't think we did that."

Said Jones: "It was something that we talked about probably in camp and stuff, and it just skipped out of my mind. It was my mistake and nobody else's. I've just got to man up to it and fix it next time."

New York, given new life, ran the ball three times to set up Folk's winner. It also kept Folk's consecutive-kicks streak intact, giving him 16 straight to start the season.

"Yeah, we're not going to talk about that right now," he said, smiling.

The Patriots tied it at 27 with 16 seconds left in regulation on Stephen Gostkowski's 44-yard field goal.

Jets QB Geno Smith threw a touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley and ran for a score.

New England's 12-game winning streak against AFC East opponents ended. "Everyone has to look at themselves and do a better job," quarterback Tom Brady said, "because what we're doing now isn't good enough."

    NEW ORLEANS — Perhaps it was the chance to witness the first USF-Tulane game ever, or an opportunity to frolic in the French Quarter for a weekend. Or both.
