Brady is 20-6 in his career against AFC East foe New York. Last season, the Patriots won both matchups against the Jets, with Brady throwing for four touchdowns and one interception.

Cromartie, who signed with New York in the offseason, is no stranger to Brady, having played him 12 times in the regular season and playoffs as a member of the Chargers as well as during his first stint with the Jets.
