I thought I'd throw out a few numbers to get the discussions rolling with some data*. If anyone finds a mistake in the numbers, please let me know and I'll update the O.P. for as long as time allows. Record Patriots: 4-1 Jets: 4-1 Opponent records/winning percentages Patriots: 21-30 (.412) Jets: 18-34 (.346) Scoring (for) Patriots: 157 Jets: 105 Scoring (against) Patriots: 120 Jets: 86 Scoring differential Patriots: 37 (7.4 ppg) Jets: 19 (3.8 ppg) Offensive turnovers Patriots: 3 Jets: 9 Defensive turnovers Patriots: 8 Jets: 6 Penalties Patriots: 25 Jets: 39 QB completions/attempts/percentage Brady: 105/158/66.5% Sanchez: 103/187/55.1% QB passing yards/yards per attempt Brady: 1341/8.5 Sanchez: 1372/7.3 QB TDs/INTs Brady: 12/0 Sanchez: 7/6 Rushing attempts/yards/ypc/TDs Patriots: 130/570/4.38/8 Jets: 172/674/3.92/3 * Just a note for those wondering about the choice of 5 games... That's going back to the later bye week, which was the Jets, in week 7. No other reasoning for that being the cutoff date is/was intended.
