The New England Patriots are coming off a explosive 59-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts and head into MetLife Stadium to face off with the high-flying New York Jets with only four days to prepare for their Thanksgiving night matchup. Nobody knows preparation against Gang Green better than Tom Brady (he is 17-5 vs. the Jets since 2001) and, while it's not hard to picture the Patriots quarterback looking at anything but game film during the short week, Brady knows his teammates like to spend a lot their spare time playing "Call of Duty" or any of the other video games flooding the market. On Tuesday, during his weekly news conference, the Uggs-wearing QB made it clear that the Patriots players should stay focused on the duty at hand — namely the game plan against the Jets. "We're just trying to prioritize our time," said Brady.  "We don't have much of it, so we've got to leave tomorrow and hopefully everyone is spending their time wisely, not playing video games and stuff like that. "It's a very tough place to play, we've always played this team very tough, so it should be a fun night." Brady has led the Patriots (7-3) to four straight wins and has thrown 11 touchdowns with no interceptions over that span.  The team has scored an amazing 170 points during the streak which began with a last second 29-26 win over the Jets. The Jets (4-6) have a habit of bringing their division rivals back down to earth, even when Brady is soaring.  Rex Ryan's Jets beat Brady three times in his first two seasons but have been on the losing end of the last three meetings. They know this game could make-or-break the season. "This team makes it tough on you," said Brady.  "They do quite a few things defensively.  They really played us well last time.  It certainly wasn't our best performance out there offensively, so we've got a big task."
