Last Time They Met: Patriots won 31-14
Storylines of the game
Jets are looking to rebound after an ugly first game last Monday. The Patriots were able to beat the Cinncinatti Bengals with a pounding first half performance in which they struck up 24 total points and dominated the Bengals on both side of the ball. Can Rex Ryan muster up a better performance from his crew as they host their bitter rivals? Or will the Jets falter to an 0-2 record for the first time since 2007?
Revis vs Moss
While All Pro Cornerback has shut down a list of the best recievers in football, one could say that his biggest rival in the game is Randy Moss. Revis and Moss' relationship is full with hatred. Since Revis has been in the league, he and Moss have faced off against each other. His first game as a rookie had him against the newest member of the Patriots back in 2007. Recently, Revis has won his matchups with the future hall of famer but this weekend's matchup is personal with Moss taking offense to comments Revis made this offseason. Can Revis handle Moss again?
Will The Jets Offense Please Show Up?
Monday was honestly disgusting to watch the Jets try and play offense. Failing to convert on 3rd downs, 60 yards passing and a disapointing first start from Shonn Greene are some of the many problems from the Jets offense. If the boys in green cannot right the ship this week, it could once again haunt the Jets and prevent them from adding a win to their record.
Welker is back
Wes Welker is the best slot reciever in the game. His talents are so fantastic and dangerous that its easy to worry how the Jets will contain the tiny 5'9 slot star. Defensive coordinator of NY, Mike Pettine, has stated the rookie corner Kyle Wilson will not be on Welker the entire game. With that said, expect some linebackers to try and rough him up at the line. We could see a lot of Bryan Thomas lining up at the line with Welker. Can the Jets stop Welker unlike last season when he dominated the Jets offense?
The last time New England played on the road vs the Jets, the crowd had lost all sense of calmness. The stadium's foundation shook as the Jets defeated their enemies in a physical low scoring game. Brady and his offense wasted multiple time outs and failed to score a touchdown. Can the Jets rowdy crowd have the same affect this week?
