I'm no X & O guy, but I assume the Jets would just run out their dime defense with 6 DBs, and still man up against the 4 wide in the cover-1 man under Belichick said they were playing. This would free up Rhodes to hang around the line of scrimmage and potentially blitz.
The only favorable matchup would be Watson vs. an LB.
Essentially, I think we'd run into the same problem we did against them in Week 2. If their corners were able to cover our wideouts, and jam them at the line, they could still rush 5 guys and give our line trouble. Plus, by putting all our wideouts on one side, it makes it a lot easier for the safety over the top.
Again, I don't know a lot about the finer points of X's and O's, but I don't think this solves the issue. The Pats receivers just have to beat the Jets corners and get separation, and they weren't doing it in Week 2.
I'd rather them run varied formations like they did against the Falcons. Use the 2 TEs to disguise run or pass and not let the defense know how many pass receiving threats are out there. That way, you could do your best to keep the Jets in their base defense, where you can create some matchups against their LBs who are not good in pass coverage.
