The Jets are a nice story, but it would require an utter collapse by the Patriots for the Jets to capture their first AFC East title since 2002.
The New York Jets are in a position that we never thought they would be.
Make some noise if you had both the Patriots and Jets at 3-2 entering this week! "We have to come out and work on us and play hard, and go into the game and try and compete and win", he said.
So the theme now is about how the Jets are embarking on the varsity portion of their schedule after a run of games against some JV competition. The Patriots are ranked 24th in rushing defense, allowing an average of 124.2 yards per game at a clip of 5.0 yards per carry. The Patriots held an explosive Tampa Bay offense to only 14 points last week, but Nick Folk missed three field goals for the Buccaneers and the Patriots dumbed down their defense to an extraordinary degree on a short week.
Clemson Tigers at Syracuse Orange
Clemson football will put its undefeated record on the line tonight in the Carrier Dome against ACC Atlantic opponent Syracuse. A lot of three-and-outs or quick drives will lead to the Syracuse defense being on the field for a large portion of the game.
The Patriots have faced a few talented quarterbacks; namely Drew Brees, Cam Newton and Jameis Winston. The Pats been giving up tons of passing yards and points, with receivers running unabated seemingly all the time. The Jets have also been unwilling to take many downfield shots with their 38-year-old quarterback.
Wideouts Robby Anderson and Jermaine Kearse may have seemed like laughable options during the preseason, but both are laying it on the line each week and their production has been pretty good, all things considered.
The Patriots went undefeated on the road past year and although they may not repeat that this season, they are already 2-0 away from Gillette and looking to remain road warriors on Sunday in New Jersey. "Yeah, I couldn't have asked for him to have any better attitude or any more cooperation than we've had from him". He'll diversify the target share among a strong supporting cast featuring Brandin Cooks, Chris Hogan, Danny Amendola and James White out of the backfield.
Playing last Thursday, the Pats have had some time off to deal with injuries and maybe put a game plan together that doesn't involve Brady getting lit up like a Christmas tree. From a totals perspective, those kind of significant spreads can throw things into chaos and, for good measure, there are injury situations across the league that also make handicapping all the more the hard. It would be one of the greatest upsets in football history. NY has played against Tyrod Taylor, Derek Carr, Jay Cutler, Blake Bortles and DeShone Kizer/Kevin Hogan. "Some of them you can question, but either way, we have to get them down".

New York's dormant pass rush will need to wake up Sunday afternoon. "We spoke about it after the game", he said.
This is shocking from a player who's racked up 1,088 career tackles, with 35 sacks. It would take a serious injury to Brady or another Deflategate suspension for the Jets to steal the title.
Those same experts also talked about the possibility - or even likelihood - of the Jets going 0-16. This feels more like a fall back to earth than an ascension into legitimacy.
