Jets Turn Up the Pressure on the Bills in the A.F.C. East With a Win in New England
This week’s games are always full of potential for upsets as these teams each go into each other’s territory for the first time as far as a game against the Patriots is concerned. The Jets and Patriots have plenty of history together as they have met 31 times since they were both still in the NFL in 1998.

The Patriots offense, on the other hand, is a different animal this season and it seems that they can score any given play and have been able to create plays on their own as well. The Patriots are going to be
