When the New York Jets face the New England Patriots on Sunday they can either roll over and play dead, or give them a fight. The time is now for the Jets to show up.

No one outside of the New York Jets locker room expects the Jets to win Sunday when they face the New England Patriots in Foxborough. The line at the time of writing is the Jets plus 22.5 points. That is crazy for an NFL game.

Do not tell that to the Jets third starter in as many games. Luke Falk will get at least one start to show what he has at the NFL level. With news that Sam Darnold could return as soon as Week 5, Falk would only get Sunday against the hated Patriots to show what he has.

New England has had two very impressive showings and has looked great on defense only surrendering a field goal to the Pittsburgh Steelers and holding the Miami Dolphins to a big old goose egg.

For Falk though, this might be his one and only chance to show the Jets, and the rest of the NFL, that he deserves to at least be considered as a number two. Last week was Falk’s first time that he was even active for an NFL game.

Falk threw for 119 touchdowns and only 39 interceptions during his four years at Washington State University. He has proven that at the college level he could sling it with the best of them.

Gase and the rest of the Jets offensive coaching staff need to work on a game plan this week that best suits Falk’s skillset.

Defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will need to put together a plan to try and slow down the unstoppable offense that is the Patriots.

Jamal Adams and Trumaine Johnson will need to get their acts together and C.J. Mosley and rookie Quinnen Williams will need to get back healthy and ready to roll.

This Sunday will probably not be a fun game for Jets fans, but for Falk and the rest of the Jets, this is their time to either give up and make excuses or stand and face what seems to be an unstoppable force.

Either way, we will learn something about this team on Sunday. We may even find ourselves a very good QB2 in the process.

Jets fans need to sit back, buckle up, and go along with the ride because we have a wonderful opportunity for something we have not had in a while.

We are currently in the window where we are not having to pay our young, franchise quarterback top money and are able to bring in top free agents. We have Bell, we have Mosley, and we have`12 Crowder.

We need our team to continue to fight on the field and inspire future free agents that we have something special here. The season is young and so are the Jets.
