New York Jets quarterback struggles continue with helmet issue

New York Jets quarterback struggles continue with helmet issue

They have secured a first-round bye for the eighth consecutive season, but they want home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Then it got worse.

Along with 19-0 talk, there was also chatter in the late summer about whether Dion Lewis might be fighting for his job, or might at least be trade bait as the fourth option in a crowded New England backfield. And the injuries mounted: Dont'a Hightower, Derek Rivers, Shea McClellin, Marcus Cannon, Nate Ebner, Malcolm Mitchell. Before that, it hadn't happened since October 20, 2013, in a 30-27 road loss to the Jets. The Steelers were now the team to beat.

For the third time in the past four seasons, New England finished with the conference's top seed after completing its 13-3 campaign with a 26-6 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday.

It says here the Patriots won their ticket to the Super Bowl on December 17 in Pittsburgh when Jesse James' catch at the goal line was ruled incomplete and Ben Roethlisberger stupidly tried to force a pass into the middle of the end zone. They have to earn everything beyond that. On Sunday, the 39-year-old linebacker recorded 5 tackles and 2 sacks in his New England Patriots debut.

This is a team that could have folded.

There remains this overwhelming feeling that the AFC title will come down to a Patriots-Steelers rematch in Foxboro on January 21 (3:05 p.m.) In last season's AFC title game in Foxboro, Pittsburgh fizzled after its indispensable running back Le'Veon Bell early on went lame with a groin injury.

In this salary cap era, that shouldn't happen. Despite throwing 25 of those 37 passes to wide receivers, and often trying to go deep to Brandin Cooks, Brady came away with only 190 passing yards.

It's all about "Doing Your Job", or "Next Man Up".

"That's what an National Football League season is all about", said left tackle Nate Solder. He came barreling from Bryce Petty's left and stripped the ball from the Jets' QB for a strip sack, then on the next play NY tried to negate him with a double-team but he still got home, and ended the visitors' season by dropping Petty yet again. "I understand that it's a 5,000-foot view and you have to continue to look at the big picture and keep working toward the ultimate goal".

"That's all you can do". "We've just got to capitalize on opportunities we've got and not make mistakes".

There are still plenty of issues to be addressed, but with numerous team's injured players expected to return, the Patriots are as well-positioned as could be expected going into the playoffs. He leaves nothing to chance and, said fullback James Develin, has the team prepared for every possibility every week. "I mean, it's just, I think for you guys standing out there in 10 degrees, it's pretty tough".

Yes, this team has faults.

The Pats also tried Cooks on three run plays - one of which netted 12 yards - and there appeared to be a concerted effort to get him involved in a number of different ways. We know those to be heavily exaggerated. "But in the meantime there are things that we can do that will help us no matter who we play". But obviously we weren't good enough as a whole. Usually in cold weather games, the Team that scores first wins. "And we've seen that this year". "Whatever we need to do, usually it finds a way to help us in one of these games in the playoffs, and that's huge". That's downright embarrassing. NY was held to just 247 total yards and 14 first downs. However, the Patriots are only 1-7-1 against the spread over the last nine meetings, in part because they've been favored by so much. You've got to prepare and be ready for them.

"It felt really good (to play)", Harrison said. "We just kept pushing forward".
