Week 16: at New York Jets
Mark and Joe say: Good 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. Tom Brady bombed New York with 20/37 for 261 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions with one sack for -1 yards, finding Danny Amendola (three for 1/19/1 receiving) and Shane Vereen (eight for 5/72/2 receiving) for the TD catches.
Since Week Seven the Patriots have won six and lost one game thanks to Brady's prowess as a passer - last week, New England threw 21/35 for 287 yards passing, two TDs and one interception against the Dolphins. Rob Gronkowski (eight targets for 3/96/1 receiving), Julian Edelman (10 for 7/88/1) and Brandon LaFell (eight for 6/66/0) combined to handle most of the targets from Brady last week.
The Jets' pass D is ranked 20th in the NFL averaging 242.3 net passing yards allowed per game, with 29 passing scores given up vs. a mere five interceptions and 34 sacks generated (tied for next-to-last in the NFL and 13th in the NFL, respectively). Last week, Tennessee managed 16/35 for 253 yards passing, zero TDs or interceptions, with one sack taken for -7 yards.
This is a good matchup for the Patriots despite being on the road to MetLife Stadium.
