New York Jets: Mark Sanchez May Have A Chance Against the Patriots
New York Jets fans have faith in Mark Sanchez, but the game might be out of his hands either way against the New England Patriots.
The Patriots defense allows over 250 yards per game through the air, which ranks them 30th in the league in that category. Sanchez should experience some success against the New England defense. However, it's Sanchez's teammates that may decide this one. The Jets defense will have to shut down Tom Brady, and if this one is a high-scoring affair, it will likely go to the Patriots.
The Jets are strong on the ground game, ranking fourth in the NFL in rushing yards per game. Does this mean Rex Ryan's plan for the offense will change against the Patriots this weekend? Not likely. New York will still pound it out on the ground, but should mix in a few timely short patterns for Sanchez.
Meanwhile, the Jets defense will be challenged in the secondary. They rank sixth in the league in pass yards allowed, so this one will be solid on both sides. It seems neither team has a clear edge, but Belichick may be the "X-Factor" in this one for the Patriots. This one will come down to defense, which slightly favors the Jets. However, they will have to be on their best behavior to slow down Brady and the Patriots enough to be successful with the running game and some passes from Sanchez.
