Welcome to Cadence Call, your weekly game preview where I give you a bootleg breakdown for each team in the AFC East & AFC North divisions.  Cadence Call took a dirty birdbath last week going 1-4 with our picks.  We eat the bread with the spread here at Cadence Call and our only victory came when we correctly pointed out that the Tennessee Titans would cover our bread.  We took our butt kicking and moved on but at least we have one more win than all of the AFC North division.The New England Patriots host the New York Jets Thursday night and this game will be either a majestic blowout or mediocre mush.  In any case, the Patriots win so grab a Magic Hat # 9 and pop the cap and suck her back.  Full tilt!Enough of this yaahd baahkin, lets light this candle.Cadence Call regular season record (1-4).  Now, on to the game preview.New York Jets @ New England Patriots (Thursday Sept 12, 8:25PM ET)  *Line: New England -13  Let us just jump on the Mass Pike right now and speed to the conclusion.  The Patriots will win this game.  Therefore, it matters not that running back Shane Vereen is out or that tight end Rob Gronkowski and wide receiver Danny Amendola are as likely to play in this game as my wife is.  It does not matter that RB Stevan Ridley’s new name is Frankie Fumbles and it is not going to matter that the game time temperature will be in the 70s (humid) with a chance of thunderstorms.  Short of Patriots quarterback Tom Bradyslipping on a rubber mat before the game, nothing will change the fact that the Patriots are a better team. I think it boils down to this, mates.  The Jets running attack is no longer ground and pound but cream cheese and jelly.  The tandem of Bilal Powell and Chris Ivory and toss in rookie QB Geno Smith is not good enough to do sufficient damage to a very tough Patriots’ run defense. The Patriots only allowed 136 yards rushing against the Buffalo Bills, which included a talented backfield of C.J. Spiller and Fred Jackson.  What does this mean?  It means New York Jets offensive coordinator, Marty Mornhinweg, will want to pass, pass and pass.  The Jets will pass down field and will use mid to short-range passes, targeting TE Kellen Winslow Jr. and WR Stephen Hill.  The Patriots have trouble defending the middle of the field and look for the Jets to exploit that.  QB Geno Smith will make mistakes but he still can deliver a lively ball and could cause some problems for the Patriots’ defense.  The Patriots’ defense will need to capitalize on Smith’s mistakes.  In addition, the Patriots pass rushing duo of Chandler Jones and Rob Ninkovichneed to pressure and get to Smith.  If they do not, the Patriots’ defense will be on the field longer than necessary and this game could be much closer than the Patriots would like.  It could be mediocre mush.  Traditionally, defensive coordinator, Matt Patricia, does not blitz mobile quarterbacks like Smith.  However, he may want to change it up to confuse the rookie.That is what is in the lobster pot.  The Pats defense stopping the Jets passing attack, allowing Tom Brady and his rag tag bunch of misfit toys the opportunity to score some points.  Tom Brady will be considered the early MVP candidate if he takes an offense consisting of RBs Stevan Ridley, LeGarrette Blount, Brandon Bolden and Leon Washington, WRs Julian Edelman and rookies Aaron Dobson, Josh Boyce and Kenbrell Thompkins, with TEs Michael Hoomanawanui and Matthew Mulligan and drops 30 on the Jets’ defense.The Patriots' offense just played a similar defense in Buffalo and know what to expect.  Moreover, Tom Brady is not going to fumble again on the one-yard line, Ridley will not fumble twice, and the rookie WRs will show improvement.  Edelman is still healthy and playing well and Bolden and Washington will see expanded roles.  If this core offensive group steps it up and plays within their capability while the defense makes the Jets pay for Smith’s mistakes, this game will be a majestic blowout.I think it will be a majestic blowout.  So take the Patriots minus the points, pound as many Magic Hat # 9s and smoke as many Casa Magna Colorado robustos your wife will let you and watch the Patriots hanger the Jets 31-13.  *Football lines provided by Bovada at the time of this writing are subject to change. You can follow me on:Twitter @TheSoftParade69Or send your comments Talk football talk cigars talk anything, I know a little about a lot.  Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?

Initial Reaction – Opportunity Missed, New York Jets Lose Ugly To Pats

Before the season, many reasonable people would have signed up for the New York Jets being 1-1 after two games, with a 13-10 loss in New England on a short week.
