It wasn’t pretty, but it was still a win for the Patriots. Thanks to a defense that recorded four turnovers and sacked Geno Smith four times, New England held on for a 13-10 win over the New York Jets on Thursday night. Still feeling the effects of the departure of several key offensive weapons in the offseason, and injuries to a few of those still remaining, Tom Brady was a subpar 19-for-39 for just 185 yards and an interception as New England (2-0) won its fifth straight game against the Jets. With Danny Amendola out for a possible six weeks with a groin issue, and Rob Gronkowski still recovering from offseason forearm and back surgeries, Julian Edelman was the bulk of the offense as he caught 13 passes for 78 yards. Aaron Dobson caught the lone touchdown of the game for the Patriots, who have won 14 straight games against AFC East opponents.
>>Chiefs Seek 2-and-0 Start Against Cowboys
(Kansas City, MO) — The Chiefs will try to match their win total from all of 2012 Sunday when they host the Dallas Cowboys in the home opener at Arrowhead Stadium. Running back Jamaal Charles is expected to play despite nursing a strained quadriceps all week. The Chiefs posted a 28-2 win at Jacksonville last Sunday to start the season. The Cowboys are also 1-0 after beating the NFC East rival Giants 36-31 at home.
>>KU, K-State In Action Tomorrow
(Undated) — Kansas and Kansas State football are both in action tomorrow. The Jayhawks are on the road tomorrow night at Rice.

K-State is 1-and-1 with a loss to North Dakota State and a win over Louisiana-Lafayette. Missouri has a bye this week before playing at Indiana next Saturday.
>>Royals At Tigers Tonight
(Detroit, MI) — The Royals are in Motown tonight to open a three-game series with the AL Central-leading Tigers. Danny Duffy will start for KC, while Detroit sends former Cy Young winner Justin Verlander to the hill in the series opener. The Royals are 13-and-5 since falling back to .500 on August 24th. KC is seven games back in the AL Central but just two-and-a-half off the pace in the AL Wild Card race.
>>Brewers Best Cardinals
(St. Louis, MO) — Sean Halton hit a two-run homer and knocked in three runs to power the Brewers to a 5-3 win over the Cardinals in St. Louis. Joe Kelly gave up four runs in five frames for the loss. Matt Adams hit a solo shot for St. Louis, which had won five in-a-row. The Redbirds are tied for the NL Central lead with Pittsburgh at 85-and-61. The Cardinals hope to take advantage of a weaker opponent this week as they battle for the NL Central title. St. Louis hosts the Seattle Mariners starting tonight. Adam Wainwright gets the start in the series opener with his 16-and-9 record.
>>Logano Defends Place
CHICAGO (AP) — Joey Logano is defending his place in the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, saying he earned his spot in the 12-driver field. Logano is the latest driver caught in the fallout of NASCAR’s investigation into the field-deciding race at Richmond on Saturday. Radio traffic appears to show Front Row Racing offering to let Logano pass David Gilliland for a pivotal track position in exchange for something unidentified from Penske Racing. There’s nothing in Penske radio transmissions to indicate wrongdoing. NASCAR said Thursday it is still looking into the incident.
