Patriots offense struggling after strong start
Patriots, with lowest-ranked defense in NFL, now try to improve faltering offense
By The Associated Press

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) ' The New England Patriots have had the NFL's lowest-ranked defense almost all season. Now their offense is struggling, too.

The Patriots lost to the New York Giants on Sunday, 24-20, and didn't score until 5:29 remained in the third quarter. Tom Brady threw inaccurately on several passes. Others that were on target were dropped.

They scored at least 30 points in each of their first five games but no more than 20 in their last three. And they've lost their last two, only the third time in nine seasons that they've dropped back-to-back games.

Now the Patriots must prepare for the tough defense of the New York Jets, who have won three in a row. The rivals, tied with Buffalo for the AFC East lead, meet Sunday night.
