Patriots QB Brady has ailing shoulder

Jermaine Kearse has been one of the heroes of a surprising Jets team this season

Since the Patriots are coming into NY with a few extra days of rest and preparation, expect to see a big game from Brady and a win for New England. "We all want to do a better job, we all want to play better". I just do the best I can do.

He's also been sacked 16 times, more than in all 12 games he played in a year ago. In Brandin Cooks' 18 targets this season, he has six plays of 20 yards or more.

He will not miss this Sunday's game against the Jets either, and the Patriots and Brady fantasy football owners catch a bit of a break as the Jets' defense is not exactly outstanding when it comes to rushing the quarterback.

In last Thursday's 19-14 win on the road against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Brady completed 30 of 40 passes for 303 yards, one touchdown and an interception.

"Tom Brady's still back there", Jets nose tackle Steve McLendon said.


Brady said it would help if the Patriots could take command in a game, rather than having to battle back into contention or struggle to hold a lead, as has been the case thus far this season. But there is some concern in New England because he's getting hit more than the Patriots would like. They are No. 1 in total offense and passing offense, and No. 3 in scoring offense. Both teams come into the game fresh off a win, and both teams are tied in first place.

With the fantasy football season entering Week 6, one of the intriguing matchups will be between the New York Jets and New England Patriots. In eight of the last 10 meetings between the Jets and Patriots, the winning margin has been seven or less.

That's probably wise, because the Jets have won two of the last four games at MetLife Stadium, including an overtime win in December of 2015.

"Some guys have gotten lucky", Bowles said.

Should Brady not play on Sunday, New England has backup Jimmy Garoppolo at the ready. They're a tough team to prepare for. You know, we've got to do a good job of that at the quarterback position.
