Most of America will be watching this game live today or watching it on whatever device they can get a free live stream on. This could be an NFL Sunday football match up for the ages. The New England Patriots are hosting the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro MA. While this is one of the biggest rivalries in the history of sports, today there is much more at stake.
The New England Patriots for the first time in recent history find themselves struggling to get past .500. This team has spent years building the NFL’s most lethal offences while their defense has steadily deteriorated over the past few seasons. This season teams seem finally able to exploit this weakness, an exploit the New York Jets desperately need.
Two weeks ago it seem like the season was floating down stream for the Jets. Despite all of the preseason hype of Tebomania and Rex Ryan, promising a top five defense this team could not seem to get out the gates. The redeeming feature for this team is a late blooming Dolphins team and the .500 has left some parity in the division. Whoever wins this game takes first place in the AFC East at least for this week.
If the Jets can play like the top five defenses Rex Ryan talked about New York has a great chance to win this game. Mark Sanchez is facing a secondary that is ripe for picking today is time to put up or shut up. Making this game more winnable is the addition of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano. Sparano has success against Belichick . As the ex head coach of the Miami Dolphins he knows this team well and how to exploit their weaknesses.
