While it is seemingly only a matter of time before the Patriots are crowned division winners, this is a game of huge playoff implications for both teams. 

The Patriots, who are currently hitting their usual late-season stride, would love to lock up the first seed in the AFC. Meanwhile, the Jets are simply trying to stay alive in the playoff hunt with only four wins under their belt. 

Both teams are coming off impressive performances, and their last meeting came down to the wire in an overtime thriller in which the Patriots were able to come from behind and steal a win. 

Even without all of the extra implications, the pure hatred between these two teams is enough to make for a fantastic contest. Stay here for instant updates and analysis.

Score: Jets 19, Patriots 49
