The Patriots were able to pull out a win over the Jets on Sunday after initially trailing in the first quarter and much of the second. The Pats ended up winning 22-17, and they now have a 9-2 record for the season. That game also marked a special milestone for Tom Brady — who has now earned 200 wins with the Patriots.

Brady was joined in his weekly chat with Westwood One's Jim Gray by his 6-year-old son, Benny, who gave some inside information into his dad's game the previous day against the New York Jets.

Jim: "Did you watch your daddy play yesterday?"

Benny: "Yes he was playing against the green guys, I don't know what they're called but they're very good."

Jim: "How did you think your dad did yesterday?"

Benny: "Great! He flipped his chest!"

Jim: "Flipped his chest?"

Benny: "And he tripped too!"

Some new data shows the 2016 Celtics do better when their coach wears a tie, while the Bruins' try to find an upside in this week's loss against the Philadelphia Flyers.
