Oct. 21 (Bloomberg) -- The New England Patriots beat the New York Jets 29-26 in overtime after the Giants rallied past the Washington Redskins 27-23 in the National Football League.

Devin McCourty had a 104-yard kickoff return for a touchdown and Rob Gronkowski caught two scoring passes from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady to give New England first place in the American Football Conference Eastern Division with a 4-3 record. The Jets drop to 3-4.

The Jets trailed 23-13 at the start of the fourth quarter at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts. Dustin Keller then scored on a 7-yard pass from Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez before Nick Folk added two field goals from 43 yards to give New York a 26-23 lead. Stephen Gostkowski forced overtime with another 43-yard field goal for New England as time expired.

Gostkowski gave New England a 29-26 lead with a 48-yard field goal on the first possession of overtime and New England then recovered a fumble by Sanchez on New York’s first drive to end the game.

Victor Cruz caught a 77-yard touchdown pass from Giants quarterback Eli Manning with one minute, 13 seconds to play to give New York the win at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Santana Moss had caught his second touchdown pass of the game 19 seconds earlier to give Washington a 23-20 lead.

“When we needed a play we were able to step up and get the big play,” Manning said in a televised interview.

Also in Week 7, the Dallas Cowboys improved to 3-3 with a 19-14 win over the Carolina Panthers.

In other games it was the Houston Texans 43, Baltimore Ravens 13; Green Bay Packers 30, St. Louis Rams 20; Tennessee Titans 35, Buffalo Bills 34; Indianapolis Colts 17, Cleveland Browns 13; Minnesota Vikings 21, Arizona Cardinals 14; and the New Orleans Saints 35, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 28.
