The New England Patriots have lost their last four games and sit at 2-5 and in the near basement of the AFC East, but a win against their divisional bottom-dwelling companions, the New York Jets, could be all the forward momentum HC Bill Belichick’s group needs to start doing some winning.
Despite their 0-6 record, the New York Jets front office has told the media that head coach Adam Gase’s job is safe, at least for now, so moving forward they must decide if they want to improve their 32nd ranked offense or let it ride and snag the first overall draft pick in the offseason.
These two AFC East rivals have played each other 122 times (including 3 postseason games), with the New York Jets winning 54 of those games and the New England Patriots winning 67 games, plus they have had one tie.

Can Patriots QB Cam Newton Find His Prior Excellence?
Cam Newton is not playing well in New England, the veteran quarterback has already thrown 7 interceptions in six games with only two touchdown passes to counter that, numbers that could be low due to being sacked 12 times in that same time in 2020.
Newton is dangerous when he is a threat to run – so far this season he has carried the ball 59 times for 298 yards and 6 touchdowns, averaging 5.1 yards per carry.
The Patriots have a limited amount of healthy targets now that WR Julian Edelman is on IR due to his knee injury, so it will be up to Newton to find WR’s N’Keal Harry and Damiere Byrd and TE Ryan Izzo more often, that is if these young players can ever manage to get open.
Can the New York Jets Win with That Offense?
With QB Sam Darnold under center, the New York Jets’ offense is ranked very last in the NFL after managing to average 259 yards of offense per game, compared with the first ranked Cardinals who post 419 yards in that same category.
The Jets run game is decent enough – still in the middle of the pack but averaging 103.1 yards per game on the ground on the back of 16-year veteran Frank Gore, who is averaging just 3.5 yards per carry.
It’s the Jets’ passing game that’s questionable, 32nd in passing yards (155.9) and points (11.8) per game, numbers that must improve if they have any shot of outscoring these Patriots.

Patriots Key Player: (CB) Stephon Gilmore
A key to a Patriots victory will be to shut down the Jets already weak passing attack (ranked last in the league), and a cornerback like Stephon Gilmore can do that and make opposing QB’s and WR’s life a living nightmare.
This season, Gilmore has posted an interception, passes defended, a forced fumble, and 20 total tackles, numbers that are lower than he typically records.
Gilmore is listed as questionable for this game due to a knee issue and will be a game-time decision by coach Belichick, but with him healthy and roaming the Patriots secondary, it makes it tough to find anyplace to throw.
Jets Key Player: (WR) Breshard Perriman
It is the Jets passing attack that is giving their offense a bad name, ranked last in the league after only being able to post an average of 156 passing yards per game during the 2020 season.
One player who could help improve this aspect of their game in New York is Breshad Perriman, a wide receiver who is now playing for his fourth NFL franchise, which is a lot for a five-year player.
This season, Perriman has caught 11 balls for 118 yards and no touchdowns, so he needs to step up and help QB Darnold gain back his confidence, but Breshard (concussion) is currently listed as questionable for this matchup and remains a game-time decision by the head coach.
