Patriots have left Tom Brady vulnerable for Jets to attack

Patriots have left Tom Brady vulnerable for Jets to attack

Brady has dealt with an AC sprain in his left shoulder that has kept him out of practice this week, but he will play Sunday. They're ranked 32nd out of 32 in total defense, 32nd in passing defense, tied for 30th in scoring defense, and 24th in rushing defense.

The Jets (3-2) have a chance to seize sole possession of the AFC East lead this Sunday, when they host the Patriots (3-2) at MetLife Stadium. The Buffalo Bills, who are also 3-2, are off this week.

"Basically things that quarterbacks don't like, they like ... just little knicky-knack stuff just to pick his brain". In fact, they got back-to-back penalties during the second quarter that almost cost the team 30 yards downfield and could have made The Bucs be in a good position if Nick Folks didn't completely mess up his field goal early on.

Best offensive player: Guess who?

Buhari called on all Nigerians to apply the values of perseverance, resilience, discipline, hard work and team-spirit, which propelled the players to excel since the beginning of the qualifying matches, to all sectors of national life.

And the Jets, like the Italian Stallion, know what it's like to be an underdog - it took the Browns for Todd Bowles's team to be a two-point favorite, and not only did they won straight-up, but also covered the spread. Brady completed 13 consecutive passes at one point.

"Winning breeds confidence, man, it breeds enthusiasm", Hall of Famer Joe Namath told ESPN on Tuesday about his former team. They were simply terrible in their Week 4 home loss to Carolina, a team that had shown no offensive capabilities up until that game. That was squashed opening night in a convincing loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. It's unbelievable how bad the flags cost the Pats defense, and the offense was equally as bad if not worse because it cost them on several drives. And their defense did, against the Bucs on Thursday, display some much needed, much welcomed improvement. He did not practice Wednesday either, but the expectation is that he will play Sunday. Gronkowski also didn't practice Wednesday because of a thigh bruise but is expected to play. "We're trying to do the best we can to get ready for the Jets this week". So, we're not really anxious about the past. This is some of the worst pass protection Brady's had during his career, and at age 40, that's worrisome. He has thrown for 11 touchdowns with one interception and another pick-6 that was officially ruled a fumble.

Jones has just five catches for 66 receiving yards despite seeing over 20 targets and he has four drops.

But the two are equal, at least so far this season, in the all-important wins column.
