Week 3: vs New York Jets
FBG says: Tough matchup. The Patriots rotated three backs once again against the Dolphins as Sony Michel saw 49% of the snaps with James White at 31% and Rex Burkhead at 24%. After a slow start from Sony Michel who had just 14 yards in week 1, he did look much improved against the Dolphins weak rushing defense. Michel carried the ball 21 times for 83 yards and did find the end-zone for the first time this season in the 43-0 lopsided win. If there is one area of concern for the Patriots it is on the offensive line as they lost center David Andrews to a blood clot issue, right tackle Marcus Cannon is dealing with a shoulder injury although he may return this week, and left tackle Isaiah Wynn went to IR this past week which leaves the team incredibly thin up front. Outside of Devin Singletary's 70 yards on just four carries in Week 1, the Jets run defense has been one that has been solid so far this season. The team shut down Frank Gore holding him to just 1.8 yards-per-carry and this past week shut-down Nick Chubb holding him to just 3.4 yards-per-carry even without star linebacker C.J. Mosely. The defensive line led by Leonard Williams and run-stopping defensive tackle Steve McLendon caused havoc for the Browns this past week. The Jets may once again be without Mosley as he missed practice on Wednesday and if he is unable to play would be a significant loss. The Jets at the safety position have two of the best run-stoppers in the business in Marcus Maye and Jamal Adams who have both been tremendous so far this year. If Mosley is able to play, this becomes one of the best run-stopping units in football and is even more exemplified by how poor the corners are on this defense.
