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...
BEST OF MAXIM
If you check Tom Brady's stat line from Sunday, you may be wondering what was wrong with the Patriots' future Hall of Fame quarterback, but to quote Bill Belichick, "stats are for losers." Well, some stats.
The Patriots' receivers dropped a season-high five passes against New York, which didn't do Brady's numbers any favors, nor did...
The Jets and Patriots duke it out like a couple of past-their-prime, journeyman boxers. The Bills avoid OT by giving up a game winning TD in the 4th.
Tom Brady and his New England teammates escaped Week 7 with an overtime victory over the Jets .. but that doesn't tell the whole story. Plus, Cam Newton is lame.
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.
The New York Jets face Tom Brady and the Patriots. New England's top-ranked up-tempo offense is fast and tricky. It uses the no-huddle to perfection, causing...
While it hurts to fathom, especially from the eyes of a New England native, Eli Manning is undoubtedly the best clutch quarterback going right now in the NFL.
Yes, Tom Brady led the Patriots to a comeback victory on Sunday over the hated Jets, but it marked the first time he had done so since the AFC title game last year against Baltimore. Most importantly, in...

FOXBORO, Mass. -- Devin
McCourty nearly fumbled away a win on Sunday night, literally. But without
McCourty in the lineup, the Patriots would have never been in a position to win
McCourty had as eventful a
day as you could expect from nearly any player in the NFL on Sunday, both good
and bad. But in the end, it was the good that outweighed all else...
In most professional sports leagues, and specifically the NFL, a term is often thrown around as follows: “A win is a win.” However, contrary to popular belief, that’s not all a win can be. Today’s 29-26 over time victory over the New York Jets can be filed under any or all of these categories: Scary. Alarming. Sobering. While any kind of win is better than a loss, this marks...

Sigh…yesterday’s NY Jets 26-29 OT loss to the New England Patriots was tough to digest. Actually, it still is. Mark Sanchez and co. had so many opportunities to pull out the win, but just couldn’t get it done. And as everyone knows, when you’re playing against Tom Brady, you have to play for the win. Not for the tie, or not to...

Chris Gross - Patriots 27, Jets 20- The Jets head into Foxboro coming off of a dominating performance against the young Indianapolis Colts at home. They face a New England team ranked 5th against the run with a very young and talented front 7, accompanied by an extremely explosive offensive unit. New York has been vastly improved over the past couple weeks...
Despite Woes Patriots Defense Still Creates Turnovers
We all have our feelings on the Patriots defense, especially the secondary and the gaping amount of yardage they yield. But as a whole the New England defensive unit is among the league leaders in turnover ratio.
They came into the Week 7 matchup with the New York Jets tied for first with a plus 10. The offense had given up...
