New England Patriots
New York Jets
The New York Jets (4-6) will host the New England Patriots (7-3) on Thanksgiving night at MetLife Stadium from East Rutherford, NJ.
Game starts at 8:20 pm on NBC (TV) and WEPN (Radio).
Patriots favorites over Jets.
Spread is - 6.5 points.
My pick is the Patriots.
Gang Green season is on the line as they host the Pats in the Meadowlands on a special Thanksgiving night.
This game is going to be huge since the Patriots won't have their starting TE Rob Gronkowski in the game who broke his forearm last week.
That injury should benifet the Jets, even though New England will have Aaron Hernandez back from injury who will start at tight end.
If the Jets don't win this game and Mark Sanchez doesn't play well. It could be the last time we see Mark Sanchez as a Jet this season.
Here are the three keys to the game for the Jets in order to win:
(1) Let Mark Sanchez air it out against the Patriots secondary. Sanchez threw well over 300 passing yards against these guys last month and New England's defense isn't that good at all.
(2) Use Shonn Greene and Bilal Powell as the one-two punch. Both of them together played great last week facing the Rams. Using Bilal Powell will extend the hot hand and get the Jets running game going.
(3) No Rob Gronkowski, but it's still going to be a problem for the Jets defense. If they don't shutdown Tom Brady or get him confused for the whole game. New York will lose by 20 plus points.
Questionable: CB Aaron Berry (Quadricep), LB Bart Scott (Toe), DT Sione Pouha (Back), RB Joe McKnight (Ankle), QB Tim Tebow (Ribs), WR Jeremy Kerley (Heel), DT Kenrick Ellis (Knee)
Out: DE Chandler Jones (Ankle), G Logan Mankins (Ankle)
Questionable: LB Tracy White (Foot), S Steve Gregory (Hip), DT Ron Brace (Ankle), WR Wes Welker (Ankle), LB Dont'a Hightower (Hamstring), C Dan Connolly (Back), T Sebastian Vollmer (Back), S Patrick Chung (Shoulder), DE Trevor Scott (Hamstring), C Nick McDonald (Shoulder), WR Brandon Lloyd (Knee), LB Brandon Spikes (Knee), TE Aaron Hernandez (Ankle)
Final score is Patriots 41, Jets 23
BEST OF MAXIM
The Jets have been struggling all year, and this play is probably a microcosm of Mark Sanchez’s career. A broken play that he tries to salvage by getting back to the line of scrimmage, where he runs into his lineman, fumbles and it gets returned for a touchdown.The best part is he was mid-slide when he ran into his guard’s backside and then his reaction to seeing the Patriots...
New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez fumbled the football after he was knocked to the ground by his own teammate's butt, and New England Patriots cornerback Steve Gregory recovered the fumble and ran it 32 yards for a touchdown on Thanksgiving night at MetLife Stadium.
It happened in the second quarter as Sanchez missed a handoff to his running back, then ran towards the...
What a Thanksgiving day for ass to mouth fans. Things got started in NYC on the Upper West Side where the Macy’s parade balloons are inflated. That’s really Spiderman going ass to mouth on Uncle Sam. But that was just the start for NYC A2Ms.
Mark Sanchez got in on the A2M action with this play that epitomized the Jets night.
Which led to this from the NY...
Now, that’s what I call a Dirty Sanchez!
On Thanksgiving night, the New York Jets put together one of the worst quarters of football I have seen in a long time, and I loved every second of it. As if giving up 35 points and recording three turnovers in the second quarter alone wasn’t enough, the incomparable Mark Sanchez gave us a play that pretty well sums up this entire season...
NFL Films named Jim Marshall's wrong way run in 1964 as the #1 Football Folly in NFL History for their 100 Greatest Follies film in 1994. Surely this Mark Sanchez highlight from Thanksgiving Night 2012 has to enter the Top Ten, if not provide some stiff competition to Marshall's legendary blooper that has stood at the top of the heap for almost 50 years.
Watch as Sanchez...
'U R RIDICULOUS'
New York Jets tight end Dustin Keller took to Twitter to call out Jets fans who apparently booed when it appeared that Mark Sanchez went down with an injury.
The Jets fell in a laugher to the New England Patriots in Week 11. Find out the highlights, but mostly lowlights from a pitiful performance from Mark Sanchez and company.
> I admire how the Jets subtly equated rooting for the Patriots with being a fan of Hurricane Sandy
> Cris Collingsworth savors pre-snap hard counts like other men savor wine
> Mark Sanchez's first INT inside the 25 could only be called Vick-esque
> I couldn't write fast enough in real-time to cover the various Jet calamities that caused this game to get out...
By now, if you are a sports fan, you probably know the New England Patriots destroyed what's left of the New York Jets, 49-19.
But did you see the highlights?
This may very well have had the funniest play of all time in it.
Sure, there were lots of "Lowlights" for the J-E-T-S, but the worst may have been when QB Mark Sanchez ran into the butt of one of his...

Joe Caporoso - 12 Pack
Chris Gross- Jets 24, New England 21: Tomorrow, the Jets will display the same mentality that they had last week in St. Louis, the mindset that their backs are against the wall and they need to swing from the hip to survive throughout the rest of the season. While New York is historically bad under Rex Ryan when facing the Patriots in the clubs’ second...
