Jets vs. Patriots: Weather Report


Week 7 is upon us and this week needs no hyperbole. It’s Patriots week.

So if you’re going to venture into enemy territory this Sunday, according to weather.com; it will be sunny and 60 degrees. There will be a westerly wind of 14 miles per hour.

Who does the weather favor? The conditions make it equal BUT, the Jets are going to Massachusetts and playing New England in their building. The home team is who this really favors.

How can the Jets have even a remote shot against the Patriots?

Offensively, part of the plan needs has to have more of the guy to the left. Dustin Keller has had some really good games against the Pats in his career so he has to have a big game and be that constant for Gang Green.

Defensively, not sound really obvious here but there’s two keys… stop the Pats all-world tight ends and stop the run.

You bring in Yeremiah Bell and LaRon Landry for this reason: to keep their tight ends from burning you. So these two need to get to the line and smash Rob Gronkowski and Aaron Hernandez in the mouth right at the line. Then the defensive line needs to stop the run. This is a more balanced Patriots team then in years passed.

The Jets need to channel their inner 2010 team if they want to have a shot at beating them (think divisional round of the playoffs.
