“The way I was raised, you protect family,” said defensive end Damontre’ Moore, one of two Giants players ejected. “My brother was in danger.”
He kept the hat on in the tunnel before introductions and held it over his heart during the national anthem. The Jets also held a moment of silence.
The New York Giants are peaking behind a rookie that no one can cover. Odell Beckham Jr. showed the St. Louis Rams plenty of toughness, too.
Jonas Gray scored the go-ahead touchdown on a 1-yard run early in the fourth quarter after the Patriots intercepted Geno Smith, and New England clinched a first-round playoff bye with a 17-16 victory.

Rontez Miles’ season debut for the New York Jets never made it to game day.
