The Pats have wrapped up the division and don’t have a ton to play for overall but the Jets certainly do. This is a division rivalry and maybe the best game of the week so don’t forget to tune in.
Kick off is set for 1:00 PM ET with the Jets trying to secure their playoff positioning against the best team in the AFC.
New England Patriots
I don’t know the tiebreaker situation but I do know the Pats are just one win away from locking up home field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs. That is key for them as they have been walking wounded for weeks now and an extra week to heal up would certainly help.
The last time these two teams played it was a hard fought battle back in October. As they often due the Pats pulled away late.
New England won despite getting nothing going on the ground, though they had less than 10 carried and Tom Brady had four of those/
Rob Gronkowski was unstoppable that day but what else is new. He is healthy for this one and you can bet he will be featured once again.
The Pats are never intimidated but it should be a good environment at MetLife on Sunday.
New York Jets
The Jets have won four in a row and are one of three AFC teams with 9-5 records. Unfortunately it looks like only two of those can make the playoffs and the Jets have a tough road over the next couple of games.
For me New York is a good but not great team. They don’t have a real difference maker at quarterback and their defense has not lived up to its potential. I know the stats show it is very good but I thought it had the potential to be a monster this season.
The Jets have not had much success against the Pats of late, winning only two of their last 10. This is a big situation for them and they are at home so emotions will be high.
The key will be getting off to a good start and not making mistakes. Yes I admit that might be the key for any game any time but this team especially. They need the crowd in it and they need not to play catchup. They can hang with New England and did it earlier in the season.
