    It wasn't pretty, but the Pats managed to get out of Tampa with a win last Thursday night setting up a match-up of co-division leaders this coming Sunday in the swamp in New Jersey. Yes, you heard that right, the frisky New York Jets, everyone's pre-season pick to be historically bad, come into the game on Sunday with a 3-2 record, equal to the Pats and Bills at the top of the AFC East.

    It is tough to say whether the Jets are actually a mediocre team as opposed to horrible, or whether they have just managed to squeak out wins against three pretty bad teams (Jacksonville and Miami at home, Browns in Cleveland). But if the Pats actually have designs on another Division Title and a bye, this is a game they have to win.

    The Pats D looked better in Tampa although Winston seemed to miss a ton of easy throws. The Jets have zero skill players on offense, so hopefully this is another week where the D can gain some confidence. On offense, all eyes will be on the injury report to see if Gronk will be able to be on the field. The offense struggled at times without him in Tampa.

    Ian Eagle (play-by-play), Dan Fouts (analysis) and Evan Washburn (sideline) will be on the CBS call for Sunday's game between the Patriots and Jets at MetLife Stadium (1 p.m. ET).

    Solder "not injury related" makes me feel sad

    Mo Wilkerson and Bilal Powell both are not practicing today per Rich Cimini.

    Bilal Powell is unlikely to play on Sunday, meaning it'll be a Matt Forte-Eli McGuire tandem in the backfield. Barring a setback, Forte is likely to play. The only thing he said today is that he wants to play. The biggest question surrounds Muhammad Wilkerson. Coach Todd Bowles said it's "possible" that Wilkerson could play without practicing, but that has been a rare occurrence under Bowles.

    Cimini's someone who I wish covered Boston sports. I really enjoy the attitude in which he writes -- it's a delicate trick to pull off without over-injecting first-person egoism

    Rowe is out and Burkhead is questionable. Everyone else was removed from the injury report.

    This might not be the appropriate thread for this question, but is anybody going to the game this week?

    My two friends that were going are both sick and I'm trying to decide if I wanna bail or still go. Sitting around a bunch of Jets fans by myself in the nosebleeds doesn't sound very ideal.

    No, he's out. Does that make Jones the second CB now?

    There's never a good week to be down two of your top three CBs, but if you had to pick this weekend or next weekend...

    This will be a tough game to win. Jets are playing with some confidence.

    They can play as confidently as they want, their QB is fucking Josh McCown.

    And the Patriots are starting Johnathan F-ing Jones at CB with Jonathan F-ing Bademosi getting snaps. Jets have played the Pats tough the last 4-5 years at MetLife. I would expect no different today.

    Powell is the key inactive for the Jets. Wilkerson is active but is hobbled.

    Robbie Anderson is going to take the top off and Kearse will have 12 catches.

    I don't see how the Jets can stop the Pats from scoring. Todd normally tries to play ball control to keep Brady off the field because we don't really have any answers for a dynamic offense.

    I want to see how Jamal Adams handles Gronkowski. That should be a fun matchup to watch.

    Just when the defense started to figure it out, the injuries hit. Patriots are going to have to score today. No bullshit in the red zone. Hoping for lots of extra points for Gostkowski instead of having field goal attempts.

    Always tough games in NY regardless of Jets quality, but get the W today and be 4-2.

    So, let me be very clear. I am not comparing my plight with that of those who actually play in the games and risk brain injury on every play.

    But I think we should take a minute, before kickoff, to recognize the risks that we all take, albeit relatively much more minor, in watching these games.

    We all will be dumber for three hours plus of Dan Fouts. But these are the sacrifices we have chosen.

    McCown’s a legit starting QB in this league, even at his age.

    Bademosi has been good on special teams, and I choose to believe that makes any difference at all as he plays DB
