The long-time Jets linebacker was preparing for his 11th season with NY as late as June when ownership decided it made more sense to cut costs, parting ways with a number of high-profile veterans, including Harris. Sure, the Jets have been pretty good to start the season, but the talent level between these two teams is too much.

Those same experts also talked about the possibility - or even likelihood - of the Jets going 0-16. "It's shocking to them, but we knew we could be in this position".

After all, this was just months ahead of a season destined to be filled with losses - and more importantly, a high draft pick that could be exchanged for a franchise-altering quarterback in 2018. The Buffalo Bills, who are also 3-2, are off this week. The AFC East has proven to be more challenging this season than predicted, but the Patriots are still the cream of the crop.

Last week, they beat the winless Browns, 17-14, in Cleveland, in a game that was hardly a thing of beauty.

The New York Jets have won three straight games, but are seeking a monster upset win. The only team that enters Week 6 with a sub-.500 record that remains on the Jets schedule is the Los Angeles Chargers. "It's not like we arrived or anything like that, we still have some work to do". "We know we can't play like this and win the division and achieve our other goals".

Forget the fact that the New England Patriots quarterback is already 40. In eight of the last 10 meetings between the Jets and Patriots, the winning margin has been seven or less. The Jets and Patriots have met at least twice every season since 1960, except for the strike-shortened 1982 season, when they played just once. The Pats offensive line hasn't gelled yet and this could be a good opportunity for Muhammad Wilkerson and Leonard Williams to get on the board with a few sacks. The New England Patriots are -9.5 over the New York Jets in this game on Sunday afternoon.

As most remember, NY stunned New England, 30-27, on a warm October afternoon in overtime behind a strong running game and an opportunistic defense.

In five games this season, they have averaged more than 13 net penalty yards lost per game, fourth worst in the league.

"When you got a guy like that that's been in the league for a long time and been highly successful in his career, you obviously want to pick his brain about things that quarterbacks don't like", said Ealy. But the former Patriots, now-Jets defensive end does believe he can take some "tips" he learned from Tom Brady and use it against the quarterback.

"You are what your record says you are", Bill Parcells famously said, a quote that became part of his National Football League credo. "But we really look forward to that challenge and seeing where we stack up". The Jets have scored 92 points, and allowed 106 on the season.

"We have a lot of trust and faith in him", Belichick, speaking to reporters in Foxborough, Mass., this week, said of Hogan.
