After you’ve spent time with your families getting fat on Turkey, stuffing, the whole nine yards; if you are planning to make your way down to MetLife Stadium to watch the epic-ness that is this kick off to week 12 matchup in the division, then this is what you’ll need to know:
According to www.weather.gov, they say that the weather will be mostly clear with a low of 39 degrees.
Now who does this favor? The conditions make things equal BUT in a lot of ways, this situation really could favor the home team. For the fact that you do get to stay home and you’re not worried about all the stress of the traveling. Even former Patriot and current NBC Rodney Harrison even thought so (but he does have a tendency to be pro Patriot in his analysis so take it for what it’s worth)
There is a bit of history on the Jets side regarding winning a game like this. The last time that the Jets got to play on Thanksgiving, they did win against the Bengals. Then this season, on Thursday night, the schedule has favored the home team.
The thing for the Jets though is that they have to build off Sunday’s win over the Rams. This is a step up in quality of team for Gang Green but if they can build on this game (especially offensiively) and keep up the defenisve intensity, they have has good a shot as ever to knock off tthe Pats. Then with the win, the Jets season and a chance at that post-season will get stronger.
