You are wise..........other than rooting for the jets.

Well, no they don't. JETs are 3-0 in the division, PATs are 2-1, JETs beat the PATs head to head and both are 9-2 overall.

JETs lead the AFC East right now and hopefully tomorrow too

They lead the AFC East with a 9-2 record. YET:

They are last in the conference in total defense, giving up an average of 399 yards a game.

They are also around the middle of the pack (7th) in the conference in offense.

But they lead the conference and the league itself in scoring with 334 points.

The Jets are 6th in the conference in offense and 2nd in the conference (third in the league) in total defense.

Like Luke9686 said, probably the best game of the season. A field goal probably wins it. And that could come in OT as well.
Burdell is right, while I was looking at the various stats last Thursday I wasn't looking close enough at the most relevant stat, and that would be the tiebreaker situation at the end of the season. The yet I was referring to is how the Pats lead in points scored but are last in the conference in total defense.

Appreciate the correction sir!

Jets looked really really bad. They still got all these good players but the Patriots took them to school in the areas that are so so instrumental to success lol.

Now you can say the PATs lead the AFC East as I begin to fear the same old JETs may still haunt the division.

Dang...I gave the Jets too much credit. Here's what I had in my Yahoo! picks:
......................................
Predict the scores for these games:
New York (NYJ)9 @48 New England

Oh well, it was still close enough to give me a grin.
