NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Bill Belichick just wants to move on — but as long as he gets the last word first.

The New England head coach has been miffed since his team was the victim of an obscure-yet-correct pushing call during overtime on Sunday that eventually led to the Jets’ 30-27 victory over the Patriots.

During the play heard around the league, the Patriots’ Chris Jones was flagged for trying to propel teammate Will Svitek forward as the Jets’ Nick Folk attempted a 56-yard field goal. Folk missed the kick wide left, but the flag flew almost immediately. The ensuing 15-yard penalty gave the Jets new life and the Patriots and quarterback Tom Brady never got the ball again as Folk’s eventual 42-yarder won it for New York.

The play has been talked about league-wide, with many Patriots supporters suggesting that since the Jets apparently tipped the officials off about New England’s tendency, they were given an unfair advantage.

The Jets, for their part, have not admitted to telling the officials anything, but did say they review all of their opponents’ tendencies.

So with the situation seemingly behind both teams on Tuesday, Belichick, during a conference call with reporters, turned around and accused the Jets of using the same kind of pushing tactic. He was likely referring to video replaying showing the Jets’ Quinton Coples trying to assist teammate Muhammad Wilkerson forward as Stephen Gostkowski connected on a game-tying 44-yard field goal at the end of regulation.

“Well, I mean, since they were using the play themselves, I don’t even know about all that. But basically we’re just moving on here,” Belichick said Tuesday.

No flag was thrown, though it appears from replay that the Jets’ actions were far less obvious.

In any event, with the win the Jets (4-3) ended a six-game losing streak against the Patriots (5-2) and moved within one game of first-place New England in the AFC East.

The Patriots host Miami on Sunday, while the Jets travel to Cincinnati.
