With all due respect to the NY Jets, the New England Patriots are a far different team than the one Geno Smith and the Jets faced in October. Remember those not-quite-ludicrous discussions calling for Bill Belichick to consider trading Tom Brady? Since that time the Patriots have regained their form as a Super Bowl favorite, and a win today could erase the memory of last-second win in Gillette Stadium over the Jets earlier this season. But the Pats are missing some key players for today’s Jets game live, which may even things out. You can watch today’s Patriots vs Jets game live on TV or you can watch Patriots vs Jets game live online free stream as well.
Kickoff for today’s Patriots vs Jets game live is scheduled for 1pm EST / 10am PST from MetLife Stadium. Though a road team, New England is favored by 10 points over the Jets as you watch Patriots live online free.
In their Oct. 16 game, the Patriots allowed the Jets to outgain them on the ground 218 yards to 63. In part that was because the Patriots were without running back Stevan Ridley. Watch Patriots live online free or on TV today, and you’ll see New England without another key back, LeGarrette Blount. Blount, who re-signed with the Pats three games ago after being cut by the Steelers, was ruled out for today’s Patriots game live late Saturday night. Julian Edelman and Kyle Arrington have also been scratched for today’s Jets game live.
With Blount out, expect to see Patriots running back Jonas Gray get the start. In his previous start against the Colts, Gray scored four touchdowns and rushed for 201 yards, though his totals have dropped since. Ironically, Gray got his first NFL rushes against the Jets in Week 7, though it was only three carries for 12 yards. Watch Patriots live online free or on TV to see whether Gray can re-gain his starters’ touch.
The Jets are in last place in the AFC East with one week remaining, so New York is only playing for pride as you watch Jets game online free today. With that said, quarterback Geno Smith may be playing for his Jets future. Rumors circulated this week that the Bears could consider moving Jay Cutler to the Jets. Though that wouldn’t seem like an upgrade, Smith is ahead of only Jaguars rookie Blake Bortles in total QBR. With the Michael Vick experiment apparently over, and Mark Sanchez seeming to have found a home with the Eagles, Cutler may have a date with the Jets sooner than Smith would like. Watch Jets game online free today to see if Geno gives Jets fans any signs that he’s their long-term answer at quarterback.
