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. Tom Brady is unhappy with how New England has played late in games this season, and an ailing secondary knows that a lot of the defensive issues has stemmed from their inconsistent play. With Steve Gregory out again this weekend and Patrick Chung still dinged up from last week's loss, Devin McCourty could see a shift back to safety against New York. The secondary issues shouldn't be exploited too much against a stagnant Jets passing attack. Mark Sanchez is completing less than 50 percent of his passes and has thrown just eight touchdowns to six interceptions. Not having Santonio Holmes certainly doesn't help his case, but his accuracy and confidence continue to be in flux each week. There will be plenty to keep an eye on as Sanchez and the Jets take the field, and injuries to some key Patriots will cause for some interesting decisions ahead of kickoff. So keep up with the game and be sure to keep it here for all your news, notes and analysis for your New England Patriots.
