Tonight’s week 2 Thursday Night Football offering features division rivals with absolutely no love lost for each other. The New England Patriots are hosting the New York Jets for the first of their two battles on the 2013 schedule. The game will be broadcast on the NFL Network and also via a free NFL streaming option, live online, to select internet providers. SiriusXM satellite radio will be streaming live audio as well.
Both the Pats and Jets won by the skin of their teeth last week. The far-inferior Buffalo Bills took New England to the limit and the Jets successfully held off a last-ditch effort by the Buccaneers to claim victory in a game they were not favored to win. The Patriots are favored by 11.5 points tonight.
To add fuel to the wildfire, LaDanian Tomlinson recently announced that in a pre-game pep talk, Rex Ryan once said he was going to punch Bill Belichick in the face when the two head coaches met on the field before the game.
LT said it was just motivational speech fodder, especially since there has been no punching of said face, but apparently it was appreciated by the players.
