This Sunday the New England Patriots will face their AFC East rival, the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. Despite the Jets 3-11 record, the Patriots will be playing to win the game in this week 16 matchup.
“The records are what they are, but we are expecting their best game,” said Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady.
The Jets have been in a lot of close games this season and have lost six games by a single score. Their record could just as easily be 9-5 instead of 3-11. The Jets run game and defense are the vocal points of their game and kept them in those contests.
“Their running backs are excellent,” said Patriots Head Coach, Bill Belichick.
Belichick was speaking of Chris Johnson and Chris Ivory, who have lead the Jets to an average of 147.1 rushing yards a game, which is ranked second in the NFL. Ivory leads the team with 739 yards and six touchdowns. Johnson is not far behind with 613 yards but only has one touchdown. Both players average over four yards a carry.Read more...
