Jets-Patriots Blog

Dom Bonvissuto blogs the battle for the AFC East lead between the Patriots and Jets.

Pregame:

Don Banks, SI.com NFL senior writer, is at Gillette Stadium and checks in: "Just got back to my seat in the press box. Had to do an on-field TV hit with Comcast New England. It is freaking windy and freezing. Passing games are going to be really challenged tonight. Might favor Jets big time if it's a running game first type of night."

Here are tonight's inactives, per ESPNBoston's Mike Reiss: Patriots: RB T. Clayton; DE/OLB E. Moore; OL M. LeVoir; OL R. Ohrnberger; WR T. Price; DL M. Pryor; DL M. Wright; CB J. Wilhite. And the Jets: OLB J. Westerman; OL V. Ducasse; TE M. Mulligan; TE J. Cumberland; WR L. Coles; DT M. Dixon; DL M. Kroul; K. Clemens (3/QB). No big surprises on either side.

Does this news about the Broncos firing Josh McDaniels overshadow this game? Or does the McDaniels' ax get second-billing? Here at SI.com, our lead story probably will remain Jets-Pats. It will be interesting to see how some of the other national web sites play it.
