New York Jets vs. New England Patriots: Breaking Down the Matchups

January 14, 2011   ·     ·   Jump to comments

It's only fitting that the epic 2010 rivalry between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets should come down to a two-out-of-three deciding game in the Divisional Round.
Although we can't write off the 45-3 drubbing of the Jets at Gillette Stadium in Week 13 on Monday Night Football, we shouldn't put too much importance on it. It's not as though that game will serve as a bank for the Patriots from which they can withdraw points should they be running on insufficient funds.
There are, however, strategic notes to be had from both that game and the prior contest at New Meadowlands Stadium, in which the Jets handed the Patriots their first loss of the season.
But a lot has changed since then. Heck, a lot has changed even since the Patriots handed the Jets a 42-point loss. So let's take a look at the matchups.
