Who wins? Discuss.
Depends on where it's being played IMO. I take NE any day of the weekend so long as Brady can play
Its in New England. Its going to be a hellacious game.

Its definitely not going to be a gimme.
Brady is on fire right now...the Pats defense reminds me of NO's last year, not the greatest stats wise, but opportunistic...
I say NE cuz it is up here...
Have to give an edge to the pats simply because the Jets D has not looked as solid this season, and Belicheck is beginning to use more exotic defenses so things being equal the pats offense is relatively stronger than the jets D', but the Jets Offense is at best equal to the pats D.
I'd give the Jets the edge in Special Teams though.
Patriots home field advantage is ridiculous.
That's why they got destroyed in the playoffs by the Ravens.
Anyway, we beat the Pats week 2 without Pace, Holmes, and a healthy Revis. I know they are a much improved team over the 11 weeks but as Rex would say, I like our chances. Should be a fun game to watch.
Scoreless tie with a huge coaches/owners brawl after game.
Hopefully the seventh ring of hell opens up and swallows the stadium with both teams playing in it.
having said that...DO NOT over-estimate the Pats because they can roll some points all of a sudden the past couple of weeks.
The ONLY thing that has me picking the Pats is the Home Field, and the jets living dangerously every week.
But...the Jets are the BETTER team. More talented. The Pats have Brady..and that's it.
When was the last time Bellicheat and the Pats were swept? I can't recall. You have to go with the Pats in this one.
**** the pats*
How did you guys do in the Bengal game? I didn't watch.
Gotta go with the Patsies at home.Hope both teams beat each other up.
Patriots at home since the Jets won last time, HOPEFULLY in the Snow. [I like snow games, I hope it snows for Jets-Dolphins!]
McCourty isn’t playing well because he’s playing for Belichick. The Patriots have had a terrible secondary for years. McCourty is just that good. It took Belichick five years, but he finally drafted a DB worth a damn. Ninkovich also was pretty good for us in 2007, one of the few players with any competency. What do we do? Put him on the practice squad in 2008, and let the Patriots sign him away. Whoops.
Sanders and Branch are beneficiaries of the Brady/Belichick halo effect, and Woodhead is beneficiary of opposing defenses’ tendency to play the pass against the Patriots.
I honestly see the Jets getting beat pretty good in this one, they have not played well in over a month, and against bad teams.
The Jets defense has been bad, I can see the Pats having a field day.
As long as its not close with 2 minutes left and sanchez has the ball.
Devin McCourtey is a heck of a CB, I watched him at Rutgers every week, the kids has All-Pro potential. In fairness to Woodhead, the Jets wanted to keep him but had a logjam, but they were very high on him.
I am damn confident in our team. It's gonna be a helluva game.
9 more days!
McCourty is that good but don't get it confused, he's helped him too. He's helped McCourty with recognizing pass routes and making plays on the ball. They've also improved his footwork.
Regarding Woodhead, I think that goes credit to the staff for finding ways to use him. They broke his strengths and weaknesses down and put them to use.
Sanders is a talented and smart player IMO.
I don't get why its hard for people to give credit to that staff. They do a helluva job.
No kidding. At some point you have to say it's not luck. This was supposed to be a 'down' year for them, especially after they traded Moss. They're at the top of the AFC right now.
To me that's why. McCourtey has all-pro potential, sure the coaches have helped him, but don't forget he has the skills to begin with.
Woodhead did the same things for the Jets in camp and preseason, the guy is a player, and if it wasn't for the Pats, he would be playing someplace else. The Jets did not want to lose him.
Well said, my dude. I can only hope Rex/Sanchez become half of what Belichick/Brady have been this decade.
I know you've watched McCourty and I have plenty of times as well. I tracked him his final two years at Rutgers and watched multiple games. He has improved every year and yes he has skill but NE has improved him as well. They have improved his route recognition as well as his footwork.
If the Jets didn't want to lose him then they should have put him on the roster. That is their own fault. Credit goes to NE for grabbing him. AND using him properly.
Anyone who doesnt give respect to the coaching staff in NE for what they do ON THE FIELD needs to sit back and reevaluate their football knowledge.
I too think NE will win the rematch. I just don't see the Jests sweeping them.
In fact, I can see the Jests losing the next two , and possibly four out of the last five (@ NE, vs. Miami, @ Pitt., and @ Chicago). And, that last game against Barfalo won't be no cakewalk. They're playing good ball right now. They just need to learn how to close out games at the end. They really shoulda beat Pitt yesterday.
If the Jets play the way they did against Denver, Detroit Cincy and Cleveland, this game's over by halftime.
Agreed. And if NE plays the way they did against the Browns, the Jets can pull off an upset. Should be interesting, but I honestly don't expect the Jets to win. When was the last time NE was swept by a division opponent? I can't remember.

It will be a close game. It would not surprise me if the Jets pull another late one off but the key will be Kyle Arrington against the Jets WR's int hsi game IMO. Arrington HAS to step up and Meriweather needs to stop biting on every single thing.
If the Jests can get to Brady they will win. If they allow Brady to have 60 seconds on every throw (like he's had for the majority of his career and thus been mistakenly labeled "elite") then the Pats will win. Brady wilts under pressure. Always has. The Jests "D" thrive on pressuring the QB.
Mistakenly labeled elite? What quarterback doesn't struggle under pressure?
In all of my years I have never seen an "elite" QB wilt or play so differently under pressure. When Brady has all day, which during most of his career he has, he plays great. However, when he is pressured he plays horrible. The "elites" I've watched, Montana, Unitas, Marino etc etc, may not have had their best days, but they still looked "elite" when pressured. Brady looks like a lost school boy when he doesn't have 30 seconds in the pocket.
Peyton Manning. Last night. Nuff said.
I don't see him looking "lost" under pressure. If anything he's gotten better at dealing with pressure.
Wait a minute, you guys hate us more than the Pats*?
Yes. Guess why.
