New York Jets at New England. Last week, somehow, the words of a second-year safety incurred the wrath of Brady and the Patriots' juggernaut. This week, the Jets could have a gag order and it wouldn't matter: The Pats are looking for payback for that infamous playback.

I know the final score I've picked probably won't happen, because of that weather and because it's a ridiculous victorious point total, but it will feel that way for the losers after the game. If the Patriots don't feel they can pass at will and light up the Jets in poor conditions, they won't mind turning to a power running game to deliver some consistent physical abuse by pounding away on New York's front seven for four quarters. They will have the same goal for the defense -- hit and tackle as hard as they possibly can. The Patriots will get their gloves on -- mainly because it's cold -- and go for a real knockout this week. Patriots 70, Jets 14.


and i was thinking that the final score might only be 16-3 coz of the bad weather. :-*

The pats can score 200 as long as Randy Moss has nothing to do with it. O:-)

That's a lot closer... The Pats are a passing team. with 50 mile an hour winds...

Vinnie Iyer just made my list of complete morons that should never be listened to. ;-D

Whatever the over/under take the under and I'd take the Jets to cover 24 or whatever the most recent crazy spread is.

I'd still expect NE to put up at least 30 points of offense.

yeah, remember the Baltimore game and what the wind was like then. It had as much if not more to do with that game being close than anything.
