Patriots shaky in win over Jets

That was ugly. Sure, the New England Patriots beat the New York Jets on Thursday to move to 2-0. But a 13-10 home win, featuring just 232 total yards and 185 passing by Tom Brady, didn't bring back memories of New England circa, say, one year ago. Then again, that's to be expected from a team without its five leading receivers from last season and its top newcomer (Danny Amendola) out. Can the Pats overcome this lack of pass-catchers?
