Pats Will Meet Jets In Playoffs

This article is more than 10 years old.

Nick Folk kicked a 32-yard field goal as time expired Saturday night, giving the New York Jets a 17-16 first-round playoff victory over the Indianapolis Colts.

New York (12-5) now heads to New England for a third meeting next Sunday. In their last game in December, the Patriots beat the Jets 45-3.

The Colts (11-6), AFC champions last year over the Jets, thought they had won it when Adam Vinatieri made a 50-yard field goal with 53 seconds left, his longest kick since 2008.

But the Jets got a 47-yard kickoff return from Antonio Cromartie and Mark Sanchez set up the field goal with an 18-yard pass to Braylon Edwards at the Colts 14. New York called timeout with 3 seconds to go, and Folk hit the winner.

New York's LaDainian Tomlinson rushed 16 times for 82 yards and scored two TDs, both on 1-yard runs.

Peyton Manning was 18 of 26 for 225 yards and one TD.
