I suppose it goes without saying, but if the Pats can’t win a home game against a 4-11 Jets team that’s in contention for the 1st pick in the draft to clinch a bye week they don’t deserve one.Worse than that actually, they could end up as the 4 seed if they lose. Which means playing SD/KC at home in the WC round and then playing the other on the road in the divisional round.
I understand the Jets are playing well and this shouldn’t be a cakewalk. Still, I’m not too worked up about this game. If the Pats can’t beat a team like the Jets at home, I don’t think they’ll make much of an impact in January no matter who or where they play.
