they have won games where no one has given them a chance , like the pitt game and tonite.Thats what worries me.
Agreed. I hate them more than anyteam (the Phins a close 2nd), but you have to respect them. They find ways. I remember last season nobody gave them a chance vs the Chargers. San Diego was on fire. They won 10 or 11 in a row and were dominating teams. The Jets played a great game and found a way to run the ball against a good San Diego run defense.
I still think we are going to win, but I am not as ****y about it as most of the other posters here.
Personally, I think a lot of things favor the Pats:
1.) The Pats have been dominant for the last two months other than against the Packers.
2.) Belichick usually develops a better gameplan for a team after he has already played them at least once.
3.) The pressure is more on the Jets. Ryan promised a Super Bowl. The Pats were supposed to be in a transition year. The Jets have a lot of free agents this offseason and built to win this year.
4.) The Jets' CBs do not match up well against the Pats' receivers. We have seen tonight that Cromartie is easily burnt when a receiver runs inside routes. Revis is better at covering inside receivers, but it still isn't his strong suit.
5.) The Jets are vunerable over the middle of the field and the Pats have Gronk and Hernandez.
6.) Sanchez is prone to make mistakes and the Pats have an opportunistic defense that turns over the ball better than any other team.
7.) The Jets can't pressure the QB very well and the only team that has even gotten close to rattling Brady was Green Bay who got a rush up the middle.
8.) The Jets play dumb and undisciplined while the Pats play smart and disciplined. This will definitely affect the penalty battle.
9.) Ryan and his staff don't play good situational football. Hence why they threw it deep on third and 5 with a lead and only 2:36 left on the clock and the Colts only have one time out. A first down would have basically won the game.
10.) The Pats are at home. The Pats don't lose at home very often.
11.) The Jets haven't played 60 full minutes of good football all year. They go at least a quarter or two or more of poor play and then play great for a quarter or two. Against the Pats, they could get in a hole they can't get out of.
i really disagree.Regardless of what ryan said and this is pats rebuilding year, the pressure is clearly on the pats -the #1 seed.
I'm not expecting a 42 point win. I think the Pats wins by double digits. I would say by 10 points or more.
Me neither, not expecting a 42 point rout this time (although I think it is possible), if we jump on them early and strike quick, forcing them to "air it out". That plays right in the Pats' hands. That having been said, I expect it to be tight until the later part of the 3rd quarter. In the end, I see the Pats still winning by 14-21 points. And, I do believe with what happened in Seattle today, I don't see any "let down" or taking them lightly.
