EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Quick notes from Sunday's Patriots-Jets game, courtesy of the Patriots' P.R. department:

-- Stevan Ridley carried 11 times for 50 yards Sunday and now has 455 career rushing attempts for 2,024 yards for a 4.45 yard average. When he passed the 450-carry mark, he qualified for the all-time Patriots team lead in rushing average. Corey Dillon (753 carries, 3,180 yards, 4.22 average) and Craig James (585 carries, 2,469 yards, 4.22 average) are now tied for second place.

-- Rob Gronkowski recorded his 10th career 100-yard game after finishing with 8 receptions for 114 yards and now holds the Patriots record for most 100-yard receiving games. He entered the game tied with Ben Coates with 9 100-yard games.

-- Chandler Jones had two sacks to increase his 2013 total to 6.5. As a rookie in 2012, Jones finished with 6.0 sacks. Jones now has two 2-sack games in 2013. He had two sacks in in the first Jets game on Sept. 12. Jones now has three 2-sack games. He had one as a rookie in 2012.

-- The Patriots have now forced a turnover in 34 straight games dating back to 2011 after Logan Ryan’s first quarter interception that was returned for a touchdown. It is the longest active streak in the NFL. The NFL record for most consecutive games with a turnover since the merger in 1970 is 71 by Philadelphia from 1985-1990. The last time the Patriots did not register at least one turnover was on Oct. 9, 2011 vs. the New York Jets.
