Last Time Out: New England was shocked by a scrappy Seattle Seahawks team, losing 24-23 in Seattle, WA. Tom Brady threw for 395 yards and Wes Welker had 138 receiving yards, but the New England defense was torched by first-year quarterback Russell Wilson, who had 293 yards and three touchdowns. New York routed the new look Indianapolis Colts, 35-9, behind a 161-yard, three score game from Shonn Greene. Mark Sanchez was held to 82 passing yards and two scores and Tim Tebow completed a pass for 23 yards.

Last Meeting: New England and New York last met on November 13, 2011, when Brady threw for 329 yards and three touchdowns to carry the Pats to a 37-16 win. Rob Gronkowski grabbed eight passes for 113 yards and two touchdowns and Chad Ochocinco grabbed two passes for 65 yards. Mark Sanchez had 306 passing yards and a touchdown, but was intercepted. Santonio Holmes had six catches for 93 yards. Prior to that meeting, the Patriots and Jets played on October 9, 2011, with New England capturing a 30-21 victory.

Game Preview: The baseball version of the Boston-New York rivalry took a year off (in other words, the Red Sox were terrible), but don't expect the gridiron version to do the same. The Pats and Jets will meet for the first time this season, and whenever those two teams get together, it's always exciting. There's Tom Brady and Mark Sanchez (and now Tim Tebow), Bill Belichick and Rex Ryan and so many more lovable (or hatable) players. Both teams enter the game at 3-3, tied atop the AFC East. There's no question that both sides want to win, badly, but recent history suggests that New England has a hand up in these types of match ups, specifically against the Jets. Sure, New York made back-to-back AFC Championship Games not too long ago, but they have always seemed to lack that elite gene. More often than not, they tend to fold when playing the Pats, and given that this is the first meeting of the year between them and that the Pats are at home, signs are pointing to another New England win.

Prediction: Playing at home, New England breaks the tie with New York and takes over first place in the AFC East. Final score: Patriots 24, Jets 20.
