Can the Jets exact revenge with a win in Foxborough, shocking the Patriots and head coach Bill Belichick? Or will rookie quarterback Mac Jones come out on top once again, leading New England to a victory?
Zach Wilson and the Jets will look to start fast this week, distancing themselves from the first-half woes that have held this club back through the first five games of the year.
Coming off a bye week, you'd like to think New York will have a plan as to how they're going to attack this Patriots defense early and often, right?
After all, last time these two teams faced off (back in Week 2), the Jets were held to just six points and Wilson threw four interceptions. Surely Robert Saleh's unit will focus on preventing giveaways and playing mistake-free football.
If the Jets (1-4) win on Sunday, they'll leapfrog the Patriots (2-4) in the AFC East standings, keeping Gang Green in contention with the trade deadline rapidly approaching.
