The Jets D is tough, but there are some exploitable holes.

Every time the New England Patriots face the New York Jets, it seems Jets coach Rex Ryan arrives with a strong defensive game plan.

That was certainly the case in the 2010 playoffs, when New York sat in the nickel, bracketed the Pats' weapons, crowded the middle of the field and dared New England to run.  It was also true in Week 7, when the Jets mixed coverages, dialed up blitzes and put speedier players on the field (like LB Demario Davis) to help in coverage.

The Jets are 4-6 and fighting for their playoff lives.  Even on a short week, New England can expect a sound defensive game plan from their AFC East rivals.
