Monday Night Football between the archrival Patriots and Jets, both with the best record in the AFC has the feel of a championship game.
In many ways it is. A victory in this game would put the winner in pole position for the AFC East division title. It would also do the same for the team’s standing as the best team in the AFC.
And with the stakes extremely high, and some of the fiercest competition on the field, this game could go a long way, both logistically and mentally, to the victor reaching the Super Bowl.
The two best teams in the conference will duel it out, mano a mano, to see who has all the advantages.
