It was supposed to be the game of the year. The New York Jets against the New England Patriots, both teams 9-2, playing for control of the division and the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Instead, it was over by halftime.
The Patriots dominated the Jets in every facet of the game to win 45-3 on a frigid Monday night in Foxboro. So it's little surprise to see New England atop the Week 14 NFL Power Rankings at FanHouse.
Any questions left? New England's now beaten Pittsburgh, Indianapolis and the Jets in a four-week span, with a Thanksgiving rout of Detroit sprinkled in. If the defense plays like it did Monday, considering how balanced and potent the offense is, the Patriots may be unstoppable.
The Jets, now 9-3, dropped from No. 4 to No. 7.
The Patriots next face the Chicago Bears, ranked No. 5 by FanHouse after their fifth straight win.
Once again, Chicago made it look difficult in rallying past Detroit for win No. 5 in a row. But if the Bears can slow the Patriots' charge next week in Chicago, we'd all have to put them amongst the Super Bowl favorites.
When New England travels to Chicago on Sunday for their Week 15 matchup, it'll be playoff like conditions: highs in the lower 20s with a chance of snow.
