Ugly. That’s the only word that comes to my mind when I think about what will take place Sunday when the Jets travel to Foxboro to take on the undefeated New England Pats on their home turf. Of course this game is all the sidebar of “Spygate” where if you forgot was the Pats being caught videotaping the Jets and other teams signals in which they were slapped with a big fine and some draft picks being taken away.
So with that, many think that the Pats will simply come out, drop a quick 50+ on the Jets, and then glide through the last two games and finish off their last two wins and go undefeated. Is it really that easy? It looks that way, as the Jets are nowhere near as good as they were last year when they caught all the breaks and went 10-6 before losing to the Pats in the wild card playoff game the first weekend of the playoffs.
They are simply put – a machine. They have a great pass offense, can play solid defense, and when they really need those tough yards, they simply go out and get them. Yes, it’s been that easy in 2007. So do the Jets have anything going for them that can make this a close game? Yes – they do have the weather going for them, that’s for sure. The weather is supposed to be snowy, cold, and could put both teams gameplans on hold.
With that though, the Pats are still the much better team. Maybe Tom Brady won’t have to throw for close to 400 yards and 4 TD’s, but at the same time, look for them to then turn to their defense, stop the Jets offense, which isn’t all that good to begin with, cold, and then pound out some scores and walk away with another easy win, as they move to 14-0 and two games away from perfect.
