New England Patriots
New York Jets
Editor's note: This article is thanks to the hard work of Ex Pats member Kyle Samuelson.
It’s another great day for New England Patriots football. Our 5-1 Pats are up against rival Jets in their final game of the regular season. We all know how the last game ended, which is to say, not pretty at all. The game was full of infuriating drops and what seemed to be a new Brady that fans weren’t accustomed to. Not even during the 2006 season, when players like Reche Caldwell and Chad Jackson were the top targets, had Brady ever looked so poor.
Luckily, that shouldn’t be the case tomorrow. Say it with me now, Pats fans. ROB GRONKOWSKI IS BACK!!!! Yes, that’s right. Our main TE was finally cleared by his doctors to be an all go for this game.
Now, seeing as it is the Jets (New England has a healthy lead over them in the division), don’t be surprised to see Gronk play in only about half the offensive snaps, especially with the slight emergence of Michael Hoomanawanui...

All season for the Patriots, the mindset seems to be “next man up.”
That’s how it went, yet again, for New England on Sunday as the team was missing Aqib Talib in the secondary. In his place, Alfonzo Dennard took over as the de facto No. 1 cornerback, while Logan Ryan got the biggest boost in playing time.
Dennard has been a stud all season, so it was no surprise to see...
The New York Jets fan who punched a female New England Patriots fan in a video that went viral is a convicted killer, according to a report.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Tom Brady was not going to let his returning toy go untargeted.
Rob Gronkowski was thrown to a game-high 17 times on Sunday in the Patriots’ loss to the Jets. He caught eight of those passes for 114 yards, but the return certainly could have gone better for the All-Pro tight end. And a win would have cleared all mistakes.
Gronkowski lost one ball in...
In my opinion, if you’re going to fake play or sing music, you might as well commit to it.
I mean check out Milli Vanilli from the late 1980’s. And for those of you who don’t know who Milli Vanilli was, don’t bother googling it, unless you want to waste 23 seconds of your life that you’re not getting back. All you need to know...
The Patriots had plenty of opportunities to snatch victory from the Jets on Sunday afternoon; they simply failed to properly seize any of them. Tom Brady looked less than sharp at the Meadow Lands as he put together a forgettable 22 for 46 passing performance with 228 yards, one interception, and zero touchdowns. Brady looked mediocre at best against Rex Ryan’s tough nose...
Vontae Davis: “Well, we had a good week of practice. We prepared really hard for Tom Brady. So I think it just carried over from practice into the game.” [FTW]

Four people accused of roles in an altercation caught on video following a New York Jets-New England Patriots game in New Jersey are now banned from all events held at the stadium.
The Jets made the announcement Tuesday night, shortly after New Jersey state police filed simple assault and disorderly conduct charges against the three Massachusetts residents and a New York man.
[via]Geno Smith had an impressive running touchdown to put the Jets ahead of the Patriots in the second half, then he did this. I’m sure almost any fan would take great moves in the end zone over celebration prowess. It could be Geno was just marking the return of Gronk by referencing this.
The New York Jets' defensive front has been the undisputed strength of the team this year. And despite flashes from other places on both sides of the ball, that continued to ring true Sunday.Gang Green got four sacks on quarterback Tom Brady from four different players -- Muhammad Wilkerson, Calvin Pace, Quinton Coples and Damon Harrison -- in their 30-27 overtime victory over...
The New York Jets fan who appeared to punch a female Patriots fan in the face after the Jets’ 30-27 win over New England looks to have a violent history.

Rob Gronkowski is active. Everyone rejoice.
Matthew Slater and Alfonzo Dennard are also active.
Chris Barker and Josh Boyce are the remaining inactives. Aqib Talib Danny Amendola Tommy Kelly Tavon Wilson and Leon Washington were already announced as being out.
Tight end Rob Gronkowski (and perhaps the biggest piece of the offensive puzzle for New England outside of Tom Brady) will make his season debut for the Patriots today when they take on the New York Jets. Head coach Bill Belichick made the final call on Gronk ending speculation surrounding the tight end after being […]
