Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will look to get back on track against the New York Jets at home on Sunday.

Week 7 brings the New England Patriots an opportunity to get back above the .500 mark against their beloved AFC East brethren, the New York Jets.

The Patriots have been treading water all season, never more than one game above or below .500 to this point. Bill Belichick's team has been maddeningly inconsistent, with the latest contest looking in hand until everything fell apart in the fourth quarter against the Seattle Seahawks.

Now, New England has a chance to right the ship against the Jets, a group coming off a 35-9 win over the Indianapolis Colts. Whoever snatches victory from the other will be 4-3 and looking good as we head toward the halfway mark of the year, while the other will be left searching for answers.

Around the league, there are many other notable games, including the Baltimore Ravens taking on the Houston Texans. Baltimore will be in for a stern test without Ray Lewis and Lardarius Webb, who both suffered season-ending injuries last Sunday.

On Sunday night, the Cincinnati Bengals and Pittsburgh Steelers clash in an old-school AFC North affair. The following night, the week is capped off when the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions tangle in the Windy City.
