Patriots barely hang on to beat Jets

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - One week after digging out of a double-digit deficit to record a season-opening win, the Patriots tried a different route yesterday. They built a sizable lead then hung on for dear life.

The team had a 17-point advantage at halftime, increased it to 24 points six minutes into the third quarter, then withstood a furious rally from the Jets to record a 24-17 victory before 77,595 fans at Giants Stadium.
