New England Patriots vs. New York Jets Preview
The Patriots have been trying to find chemistry on offense with plenty of new pieces and it seems to be getting better and better as the season goes along. Now they have another familiar face on offense as it has been announced that Rob Gronkowski is cleared to play. Why it is unclear on how much time he will play, the Patriots are happy to have him back in the lineup.

The Patriots have some serious injuries going into this game that are being overlooked. Leading tackler Jerod Mayo will miss the rest of the season after having surgery on Tuesday to repair a torn pectoral muscle. Aqib Talib
who has been the heart of the Patriots defense is also hurting. Thatâ€™s why Talibâ€™s absence at practice on Wednesday is huge news. Talib re-injured his hip against the Saints. Missing time during the season would be nothing new for the former Buccaneer. Heâ€™s never played a full 16-game slate.
If he canâ€™t play rookies will have to step to the forefront and that could be too much to ask. Meanwhile the Jetsâ€™ defense looks really good. They are ranked fourth in total defense, 12th against the pass and second against the run. Opponents are averaging only 3.0 yards per rush against the Jets. This could make things tough for the Patriots.
New England Patriots vs. New York Jets Trends
The latest NFL betting trends for this game reveal several positive wagering angles for both teams. The Patriots are 12-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 14 meetings in New York, and the road team is 22-8-1 ATS in their last 31 meetings. However it should be noted that those were vastly different Patriot teams on offense. The Jets are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games after scoring less than 15 points in their previous game and 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.
New England Patriots vs. New York Jets Predictions
The Jets seem to pick it up a notch when they are going against Tom Brady and the Patriots. Rex Ryan puts an extra emphasis on this game above all others and his defense has been impressive this season. The Patriots will take some time to get Gronk back in the groove and itâ€™s a perfect spot to back the Jets.
