How new york Will Try To Win ::
The 1-4 Jets haven’t been good this year but they have shown signs of life in the last two weeks. After starting an uncompetitive 0-4, they stunned the Titans in overtime, before losing a one-score game to the Falcons. The Jets play slow when it’s close (25th situational neutral pace), and slow when they’re losing (18th pace when trailing), but speed up when they’re winning (2nd fastest pace when leading). Ya. That doesn’t make much sense. The Jets are still searching for their identity as Zach Wilson figures out the NFL.
The Jets have figured one thing out though, they are a lot more competitive when they reel in Zach Wilson. This strategy makes a lot of sense since Wilson has yet to complete an NFL game without throwing the ball to the other team. It’s hard to win games when your QB has thrown nine interceptions in five games. Expect the Jets to try and play “hide the INT machine QB” until the scoreboard forces them out of their game plan.

Bill Belichick’s Patriots come into their second game with the confused Jets at a disappointing 2-4. They’ve absorbed losses against the Dolphins/Saints/Bucs/Cowboys while only narrowly defeating the Texans. Their lone confident victory came against these Jets in Week 2. If the Patriots play the Jets every week, it’ll be like Brady never left! The Patriots did lose three of those four games by one score, dropping last week’s game in heartbreaking fashion in overtime. The Patriots aren’t far away from being 5-1 but I’m sure it doesn’t feel that way in their locker room right now.
Belichick is an adaptable coach that is willing to relentlessly attack the relative weakness of a defense. The Jets can be attacked through the air (23rd in DVOA) or on the ground (17th in DVOA), which will allow the Patriots to proceed in whichever manner they see fit. Belichick has shown enough trust in Mac Jones to come out passing. There is a good chance they mirror their Week 2 game plan, leaning pass-heavy early, before using their running game to salt the game away in the second half.
Likeliest Game Flow ::
The Patriots have been installed as a confident seven-point favorite in a home game they can’t afford to lose. The most likely game flow is highly likely in this one as Belichick must win to keep any playoffs hopes alive. There isn’t a reason to believe the Pats will deviate from their Week 2 game plan. This game is likely to play out with the Patriots showing aggression early, before riding their running game to an easy victory in the second half.
