Points: Jets Take On Patriots at MetLife

Patriots notebook Surging Jets set for first-place faceoff with Pats        Adam Kurkjian     Tuesday

But the Patriots are a supremely talented bunch, certainly more talented than the Jets. Since the infamous "Butt Fumble", massacre on Thanksgiving, the last four games between these two teams have been decided by six points or fewer and two of them went to overtime.

"They're a good team".

The biggest surprise has been the Jets offense. They usually make it a dog fight with the Patriots, no matter what the two teams look like, when they square off on their home field. That's the ultimate oddsmakers disrespect. That's what 0-5 will get ya. Miami hasn't allowed more than 20 points in a game all season, and its run defense is allowing 3.2 yards per carry. Can New England hold off the Bills, Jets and Dolphins? And the easiest path for the Jets to shut up the naysayers now is to take advantage of the porous Patriots defense that ranks last in the NFL. New York's West Coast system is predicated on the short passing game, but offensive coordinator John Morton must show a willingness to take chances to keep up with New England's offense. They've split the last 8 games there since '09 and have more yards and first downs in those games.

This editorial expresses the majority opinion of The Rider News and was written by the opinion editor, Hayley Fahey . Guns account for more suicide means than all other methods combined and about 85 percent more likely to end in death.

Oh, yes, the New England rushing defense isn't what you would call special, either. RB LeSean McCoy is on pace for the worst rushing average (3.2 yards per carry) of his career, while the Bills' wide receivers are averaging 4.8 receptions and 63.2 yards per game, which would be National Football League worsts since at least 2001. Though they are minute stats, they mean the Jets are throwing the ball quickly and past the first-down marker. "We have to be prepared for everything". They've had 10 days to prepare for us, and knowing Coach Belichick, who knows what we're going to get? Everything Changed When I Met Him.

Seferian-Jenkins said he's seen the big plays the Patriots have yielded on film, but he's not allowing that to cloud his preparation. They always seem to improve under Belichick. They have some tough players to block up front and they have good speed in the back end. Can you believe that they have a share of the AFC East lead right now?

"Good to get a win on the road", said Todd Bowles, the Jets head coach, who has been defying the odds but keeping the team's consecutive wins in proper perspective. But they know the Patriots as always will be hard to defeat, especially if it's a one-score game with minutes to play, as were their home losses in '14 and a year ago. In last week's 17-14 win in Cleveland, they didn't score a touchdown until the third quarter.

And he's right. On offense, the Jets got off to a slow start against the 0-4 Browns. Can we start fast? Defensive anchors Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams haven't recorded any of them and that's simply inexcusable five games into the season.
