This is a game I've been looking forward too. I expect the Pats to win, but, at the same time, I would not be shocked if the Jets did. It is a big game, though, since they're just one back, and it is a division game.
We have a lot of notable inactives. Keshawn Martin, Dion Lewis, Jabbal Sheard, Shaq Mason, Brandon Bolden, and Marcus Cannon are all down. I wonder a little about having some of them sit with minor injuries because we play Thursday. But, it also has lineup implications. With Lewis and Bolden down, that means James White will be the backup to Blount. With Martin down, it means Dobson will play. LaFell is also back, but I expect him to be on a snap count. It might also lead to a lot of 3 TE sets and Blount power running. It definately makes things interesting.
The Jets have Bilaal Powell down, and with Ridley still on PUP, that makes them have less backfield depth. Ryan Quigley, the punter is also down.
Bill Vinovich is the ref, Ian Eagle and Dan Fouts on the call. The weather will be high 50s to low 60s with a 30 percent chance of rain.
