These Jets-Pats games are always way too close and it’s because Rex Ryan has Tom Brady figured out. Rex needs to go back to being a defensive coordinator. Frankly, it is where he belongs and I can see him getting a lot of job offers.
I said before this game that the Patriots would beat the Jets 41-10. Holy hell was I wrong. Thankfully, the Pats could pull it out, but the real Christmas gift came last night in the Bengals-Broncos game. Peyton Manning with 4 picks!!! I love it.
Pats sealed home field with that. The road to Glendale goes through Gillette Stadium.
Kind of a throwaway game next week against the Bills.
Gronk will probably play a half. We’ll see Jimmy the Kid at some point. Hopefully they get most of the guys rested for the playoffs and get some reserve guys first-team looks to prepare them for the real season.
