(Newser) – The New York Jets stand alone atop the tight AFC East standings, barely. Jay Feely kicked a 34-yard field goal on the first series of overtime to beat New England 34-31. Feely's kick came after the Patriots had tied the game on Matt Cassel's pass to Randy Moss with one second left in regulation. The win broke a tie for the division lead and gave the visiting Jets (7-3) sole possession of first place for the first time since 2001.
