New England Patriots: Looking Ahead versus New York Jets
The New England Patriots will finish the 2020 NFL season with an under .500 record. It has been a different tone and season in New England. For 20 years this team has been to nine Super Bowls winning six of them. Tom Brady left town and headed to Tampa Bay and he has the Buccaneers heading to the playoffs for the first time in 13 years. Some players opted for due to coronavirus. To me, this season is actually what many Patriots thought it would be. I was hoping they would win eight games this year and they will be one short if they beat the New York Jets. New England will be a better team in 2021. They will get to finish the season at home. Look for Cam Newton who has been on a roller coaster recently will probably start.
New York Jets
Here is a team that took the New England Patriots to the cusp in November only losing by a field goal. Since then the Jets are on a two-game winning streak after losing 13 games in a row. It’s funny they were in the driver’s seat for the first overall pick in the upcoming NFL Draft. That now belongs to the Jacksonville Jaguars who have only won one game. I look for the Jets to want to end the season on a three-game winning streak. They also want to get revenge against the Patriots from the game earlier in the season. This team has been different the last two weeks what was going wrong is now going right. They have beat good teams in the Los Angeles Rams and Cleveland Browns.
New England Patriots
The New England Patriots are 6-9 at the moment. Last week they lost to the AFC East Champs the Buffalo Bills. They only scored nine points. Newton was the only one that scored points with a rushing touchdown. He had two in the game earlier in the season against the New York Jets. Look for Bill Belichick to have a similar game plan this time. We will hope that it goes much better with the same result. I think this also a game that we see what Patriots will still be with the team next year if they are under contract or decide to come back. New England has lost the last three games their last win was a shutout win over the Los Angeles Chargers 45-0.
The game will kick off at 1 PM EST. It will take place at Gillette Stadium for the final home game for the New England Patriots. Both teams will look different next year as they both sit in the bottom of the division looking up at the Miami Dolphins and Buffalo Bills. This game has little meeting because neither team is making the playoffs. Is this the last game for Cam Newton as a quarterback in New England? Who will the New York Jets draft even if they win on Sunday? I am looking forward to seeing how both teams finish it will either be a Jets three-game winning streak or the Patriots will end their three-game losing streak.
