Week 16: at New York Jets

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. This is an AFC East grudge match, so season records aren't really relevant - the Jets and the Patriots play each other tough every time they clash. Their last meeting was in Week Seven, when the Patriots prevailed 27-25 by blocking a last-second field-goal attempt by the Jets. Shane Vereen starred in the first match between these teams, leading the Patriots in rushing (11/43/0 rushing and 5/72/2 receiving) and receiving. The Patriots moved away from LeGarrette Blount (8/17/1 rushing with 2/7/0 receiving) vs. Miami last week, getting Jonas Gray out of the doghouse with 11/62/0 rushing and 1/7/0 receiving. As is usual, the Patriots' rushing attack is a committee of backs - Shane Vereen handled 6/5/1 rushing and 1/12/0 receiving at the Chargers' last week. The Jets' rush D is ranked fourth in the NFL averaging 87.5 yards allowed per game, with .5 TDs given up per contest (seven over the last 14 games). Tennessee managed 28/89/0 rushing last week, right on the usual pace for the Jets, while Minnesota had 28/114/0 rushing vs. New York two weeks ago. This looks like a bad matchup for the Patriots' committee.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 13 vs GB (3 / 17 / 1 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Used sparingly, Brandon Bolden surprisingly came up with a short touchdown that saw a host of jukes and great footwork and vision. Beyond that, the game plan saw LeGarrette Blount operate as the primary early down back, limiting his chances.
