Josh Capps (@JCapps_) believes the Jets can keep things close against the Patriots
Jets hopes will be sky high after their first victory of the season but the Patriots will want to ensure that the runway is blocked before they can take off on Monday evening. Brady and the Patriots come off the back of a superior second half against the Giants, in a game which they started slowly and finished strong; a trend of New England this season. The Jets secured their first win of the season in a surprising win against Dallas. Sam Darnold posting two touchdowns and 338 yards which saw him finish with a 113.8 rating. All be it a fantastic victory, the worst offence in YPG and 31st worst in PPG (12.6) will be coming up against the current best defence in football who tops the league in takeaways and interceptions. The Jets do boast a pretty sound defence of their own, proving this last week against Prescott & Co. Some strong holds when it mattered and also standing tall against two-point conversions and also very strong against the running game. The men in green will certainly need to stand strong against the Patriots O-line who will be looking to go 7-0 and look ever more confident in making another Super Bowl. The New England Patriots will want to show a stronger start than they have shown in some of their games so far this season. Two quick touchdowns against them in the first half last Thursday; one from a Brady fumble, gave the Patriots a slight scare before half time. The Pats have proven they can go on to win games but they will not want to continue to start slowly, especially away in New Jersey. Looking to stay unbeaten, the Patriots should stay sound against the Jets but Sam Darnold will give this a good go and keep this tighter than it maybe should be. Ones to Watch
Patriots: Julian Edelman – Over 110 yards against the Giants last week, Edelman is beginning to find space and with N’Keal Harry
Jets: Le’Veon Bell – The return of Bell this season is still yet to get started, but be fearful if Bell gets space and unleashes his true pace.
