Ten plays, 62 yards and 5:34 after accepting the opening kickoff, the Jets are ahead 7-0 in Gillette Stadium.
Then Jets running back Thomas Jones ripped off a 13-yard run on their first offensive play.
Brett Favre hit Washington on a bubble screen that went for 7 yards and a touchdown.
A key play on the drive was a successful replay challenge. On third-and-6 from the New England 45-yard line, Favre found Laveranues Coles on the right sideline. The official ruling was Coles didn't have both feet inbounds, but replays showed otherwise for an 8-yard gain and a critical first down.
