2011 New England Patriots Schedule Reportedly Includes Jets In Week 5

The official schedules for the 2011 NFL season won't be released until Tuesday night, but in the days of internet leaks and instant news on Twitter, some information is bound to be released before it's regularly schedule time.

Take this tidbit, for example: the New England Patriots and New York Jets will meet for the first time in the 2011 season in Week 5, according to a Tweet from Manish Mehta.

Since both teams are in the AFC East, the Patriots and Jets will meet two times during the regular season. New England was edged, 28-14, in their first meeting with New York in the regular season last year in week two, but crushed the Jets, 45-3, in their second and final meeting in week 13.

However, the Jets had the last laugh, shocking the league with their 28-21 win over the Patriots in the opening round of the 2010 NFL Playoffs at Gillette Stadium.

With that playoff win, New York took a 52-51-1 lead in the all-time series against New England. The biggest win in the history of the Pats-Jets rivalry came in 1979, when New England pounded New York, 56-3.

The two teams have played in five games that were decided by one point, with the last single-digit affair coming in 2000, when the Patriots beat the Jets, 20-19.
