The AFC East will feature a key match-up Sunday when the New England Patriots meet the New York football Jets. Both teams are deadlocked in the division with the Bills sharing 3-3 records atop the division. The game will be played at 4:25 PM ET in New England at Gillette Stadium. The Patriots head into the game after a huge loss last Sunday in Seattle. The Jets, on the other hand, were able to have huge success at home against the Colts. The history between these two teams also comes into effect, and they sure do have plenty of hate for one another.
The Patriots want to get back on the right track after falling to the Seahawks late in the fourth quarter last week. They allowed the Seahawks to get back into the game and ultimately overtake them. The Patriots rarely lose back-to-back games and have historically had the upper hand on Rex Ryan’s Jets. They come into the game, however, with plenty of question marks and have been more up-and-down this season then they have in quite sometime.
The Jets enter the game with some momentum after a huge 20 plus point win last week against the Colts. They played good on both sides of the ball and seemed to, perhaps, establish some sort of identity last week. They get a great test this week to test out that winning formula, which included a steady dose of Shonn Greene and a good mix of Tebow and Sanchez.
