The New York Jets will look to improve their record to 5-6, inching their way closer to a .500 record tomorrow against the 7-3 New England Patriots. To do so, will take a lot of effort, and a little bit of luck. Here are my 5 quick points/observations for tomorrows Thanksgiving shoot out.
1.) Secondary Needs to Show Up
- When playing well, despite the loss of All-Pro Darrelle Revis, the Jets secondary is among the best in the NFL – if they play well. I must say that I think one of the most inconsistent aspects of the NY Jets team as a whole has been their secondary. Kyle Wilson is who I will be watching out for in this game. Antonio Cromartie has proven that he can “up” his game when he needs to, and now Wilson needs to show this. More consistant play from safeties LaRon Landry and Yermiah Bell should help the defense make big plays, and stop Tom Brady.
2.) Linebackers MUST hold Aaron Hernandez to under a 7 reception game
