New England Patriots
New York Jets
QB Tom Brady
The Jets defend the pass much better than they defend the run, and the Patriots are certain to exploit that weakness early and often. Even if the Pats lean on the run, I expect Brady to make the Jets pay with big plays off playaction. He won’t be airing it out 50 times this week, but he’ll still likely put up 275 yards and 2-3 scores.
RBs Stevan Ridley, Brandon Bolden, Danny Woodhead
Bolden has been nursing a knee injury all week, so you’re starting him at your own risk. That opens the door for Ridley to plow through the Jets shoddy run defense to the tune of well over 100 total yards and 1-2 scores. If Bolden can’t go, Woodhead becomes an interesting flex player, as he could easily rack up over 60 yards in a supporting role.
WRs Wes Welker, Brandon Lloyd
There should be no slowing down the Wes Welker train this week, as he should have no trouble racking up his 6-7 catches for 90 and a score this week. Antonio Cromartie will likely be covering Lloyd,...
BEST OF MAXIM
These are the games when Tom Brady goes into super modeThere was a point two weeks ago against the Buffalo Bills when the New England Patriots looked like also rans of the AFC. Struggling to develop an offensive flow and allowing the Bills to march up and down the field, the mood of the season was quickly turning from optimistic to “get me directions to the Tobin bridge” levels...
Tom Brady has solidified himself as one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history, yet there are some fans who aren't too pleased with the quarterback's play against the Seahawks.
While some level of criticism seems fair, there are other fans who are willing to write off Brady, saying that he's over the hill and incapable of being the quarterback we...
Rex Ryan's defense played its best game a week ago, shutting down rookie Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis offense by causing turnovers and holding the Colts to just three field goals.
The task will be tougher Sunday.

1) Peyton Manning: Manning is looking for his fifth MVP award this season, and he's off to a great start once again, despite Denver's struggles to keep pace with top-tier teams in the league. The Broncos currently rank 4th in passing yards per game, up from 31st a season ago under Tim Tebow. To cap it all off, Manning trails only Aaron Rodgers in touchdown passes at 14 this...

8 a.m. ET: The disappointment of a tough loss in Seattle is now way in the rearview and the Patriots attention turns to the visiting Jets.
Rex Ryan leads his enigmatic Jets into Foxboro for an important early-season division showdown. With all four AFC East teams tied at 3-3 atop the division, there's even more riding on this typically heated rivalry.
As quarterbacks, you could probably count the similarities between Tim Tebow and Tom Brady on one hand. One thing the players do share is that they both played under Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
That's why New York Jets coach Rex Ryan had Tebow mimicking Brady in the Jets' practice week leading up to Sunday's matchup against the Patriots.
