With first place in the AFC East at stake the Jets take on division rival New England Cheatriots. Usually facing the Cheatriots strikes fear and negativity into most Jets fans across the nation. This time around it feels a little different however. The Patriots appear to be heading for rock bottom, and the Jets are playing the best football they have all year. Not to mention the Patriots are coming to JetLife Stadium where the Jets have yet to be defeated (4-0)
Since ending their consecutive games with 30+ points, the Patriots have failed to put up 30 or more points since. For the first time in seemingly ever they have lost at home and have lost back to back games. They do not have an easy task at hand avoiding three straight losses, which might call for Tom Brady’s execution and Billacheats job termination by loser
fans everywhere. Boston
Let’s look at the facts: In the words of Jets LB Bart Scott, the Cheatriots “can’t stop a nosebleed!” The Jets ever improving run game will find holes all over the field and dominate time of possession much like in Buffablow. This again will leave the passing game wide open for Sanchez, who despite a horrific interception in the endzone last week and a dropped snap has played flawless football the last few weeks. If you take away the debacle in Baltimore Sanchez’s QBR on the year would be 95 and good for 7th in the league.
On the offensive side of the ball
New England poses no threat to any team, let alone the team with arguably the best secondary in the NFL. They have no deep threat, or any ability, besides that midget Wes Welker, to get open forcing Brady to throw in to coverage more than….ever…leading to a heavy increase in interceptions for the bald Uggz model. The Jets will not let that guy with 30 names run all over them like they did in their previous game against the Cheatriots, and in the last two games the Jets improved Run D has held two great rushing attacks under 100 yards.
The Patriots time as the ruler of the AFC East is fast coming to an end. They are looking old and slow, and the “defensive genius” Bellicheat can’t figure out how to stop anybody in the league. It is time for the Jets to step up and take control of this division. A win Sunday night, and three “easy” games to follow, the Jets could easily find themselves at 9-3 and on cruise control to a division crown and first round bye. Imagine the Jets not in a wild card road game…
