FOXBOROUGH — Two games into his NFL career, and Ryan Allen has already landed in the Patriots record book.
Allen, an undrafted rookie punter, matched a pair of team records in the Patriots’ 13-10 home win over the Jets Thursday night. He punted 11 times for 514 yards.
They might not represent the kind of records Patriots fans have become accustomed to — if anything, it’s a sign of the team’s struggles on offense — but for a punter, it’s what he’s paid to do. Allen’s kicks went for a 46.7-yard average, with four downed inside the Jets’ 20-yard-line. His long was 60.
Not counting the final possession, when Tom Brady took a knee to end the game, every Patriots series in the second half ended the same way: With an Allen punt. Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
