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 15 vs MIA (11 / 62 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 7 / 0 rec)

Out of the blue, Jonas Gray received the most touches in the Patriots backfield, though several of his carries were in garbage time. However, he did run with great patience, most evident on his 3rd quarter sequence of a 7 yard catch followed by a 5 yard run. They don't sound like much, but they would have been no-gainers without the vision he displayed. Other than that, the gameplan called for more passes than runs, limiting Gray's touches and chances.
