From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 16): Gordon still looks slower than he was at his peak and the addition of Antonio Brown is only going to make it more difficult for him to be consistent. Brown could be suspended or put on the exempt list, this is subject to change.

Week 3: vs New York Jets

All WR vs NYJ

FBG says: Great matchup. The Patriots so far this season have dominated teams through the air as this is one of the best wide receiver groups that Tom Brady has had in his tenure in New England. The Patriots came out and made it a point to get the ball to Antonio Brown this past week as Brady's first three completions all went to Brown. Brown played just 33% of the plays as he continues to learn the offense after being released by Oakland. This is a unit that will continue to exploit the matchups of the opponents and has weapons across the offense in Brown, Julian Edelman, Josh Gordon and James White who we have yet to see get going so far this season. The Jets secondary has played well in both games so far this season and then have fallen apart in the second half of games. The Jets held the Bills scoreless in Week 1 and held Baker Mayfield to just 47% completion percentage in the first half of the Monday Night game. The Jets strength is the ability Gregg Williams has to confuse defenses and the quality of their safeties in Marcus Maye and Jamal Adams. The Jets weakness is their corner positions as they benched Trumaine Johnson who is their highest-paid corner for Nate Hairston and it did not improve things as Hairston struggled alongside Darryl Roberts. Brian Poole was burned badly by Odell Beckham on an 89-yard touchdown pass. Gregg Williams was able to cover up for his poor cornerback play against two inexperienced quarterbacks in Josh Allen and Baker Mayfield for a half, but don't expect Tom Brady to be fooled by anything Williams throws at him. Expect a long day for the Jets in this one.

Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 2 vs MIA (5 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)

With Antonio Brown and the lopsided game, it was Gordon who saw the biggest drop in action. Though he did see 5 targets, he only converted 2 of them for catches. It's clear as long as AB is part of the game, his targets and yards could be volatile, though it's also worth noting a theme of the first half against the Dolphins was getting AB integrated into the offense.

2019 Week 1 vs PIT (4 / 3 / 73 / 1 rec)

Edelman did typical Edelman things against the Steelers, including a trick play showing off his arm, which seems to happen once or twice a season. Edelman did miss a catch, but also caught one in the second half where he was absolutely whacked and still hung onto the ball. There wasn't much rust to speak of, but with all the weapons the Patriots have, it's fair to wonder if he will be as consistent as he usually is in the stat column. That said, the trust he has with Tom Brady is unrivaled.
