What to Watch For: Jets vs Patriots

Reading Between the Lines Belichick Made Right Call on Restricting Guerrero

10 a.m. ET: Greetings from the frozen tundra of Gillette Stadium.

Lewis caught a 5-yard touchdown pass from Brady with 23 seconds left in the first half.

There remains this overwhelming feeling that the AFC title will come down to a Patriots-Steelers rematch in Foxboro on January 21 (3:05 p.m.) In last season's AFC title game in Foxboro, Pittsburgh fizzled after its indispensable running back Le'Veon Bell early on went lame with a groin injury. It also put him into some historic company. The New England Patriots provided the opportunity in his first game with the club.

Though Brady's numbers tailed off the last five games, there's no doubt that he is the MVP this season.

"Our biggest games are ahead of us", Brady said. "13-3 is pretty good to get the number one seed".

Dion Lewis ran for 93 yards. For teams like the Patriots, who have earned a bye week, there is a chance to heal. Tight end Rob Gronkowski was healthy and on the field but all but absent from the offense, with no catches. "I think we can do that".

Also if you are going to pick apart this game you have to watch what they did in the 1st Half.

First quarter, 4:52, Patriots 7-0: The Patriots couldn't get much going on their second possession. They passed heavily to Danny Amendola during the Drive and completed a big time 4th Down Conversion.

The New York Jets have had some notable quarterback mishaps over the last several years.

Jets quarterback Bryce Petty completed 19-of-36 passes for 232 yards with no touchdowns as NY finished its season with a 5-11 mark.

Petty was sacked in the end zone for a safety in the fourth quarter. Gronkowski and the NY media saw it all up close and personal Sunday.

No. 5 Wichita State starts slow, then romps vs. East Carolina
The Ducks dominated the paint, outscoring Arizona State 38-16 inside and scoring 15 second-chance points on 15 offensive rebounds. Wichita State trailed 14-9 early after a 3-for-12 shooting start, but the Shockers quickly settled in to take complete control.

"We stuck together", linebacker David Bass said. We faced a lot of adversity this year and we persisted through it. "We stuck together through it all".

But the Steelers regained the lead on JuJu Smith-Schuster's 96-yard kickoff return and the Browns could only manage a field goal after that. Both players have developed into foundational pieces for the Jets as they enter the fourth year of the Maccagnan-Todd Bowles tenure. There's a quote from a book I'm reading that says good teams are where talent and vision meet action and great teams are where talent and vision meet adversity and persist through it.

Robby Anderson wasn't happy when his third-quarter grab carried him out of bounds and turned a would-be completion into a third-and-long for the Jets.

The Patriots' trademarked "Blitz For Six" - their sixth Super Bowl championship - begins in earnest on either January 13 or 14 when they host their first playoff game in the AFC divisional round.

Tom Brady was uncharacteristically imprecise in the freezing temperatures _ the thermometer read 12 degrees with a -2-degree wind chill at kick off.

If Brady is on the bench and not attacking the Jets from the air, Belichick will have to get fancy with his play calling as three of his running backs are listed on the injury report this week. NY players filed past on their way to and from the field before the game.

The Patriots 2017 regular season is officially in the books.

New England begins its playoff push for a sixth Super Bowl championship on either January 13 or 14 at Gillette Stadium. Several pundits predicted that the Jets would go 0-16, without a single victory on their resume. He soon got a text from his mother.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Teams meeting for 118th time and second this season.

The Patriots' defense has battled injuries this season. Before that, it hadn't happened since October 20, 2013, in a 30-27 road loss to the Jets.
