New York Jets vs New England Patriots takes place on Thursday Night Football in Week 2 of the NFL regular season. Both teams managed to gain valuable wins in Week 1 but something will have to give for one of the teams tonight. The game starts at 8.25 p.m. ET and can be watched online through free live stream (details below).
This will be a classic AFC East match up between these big rivals at the Gillette Stadium on Thursday night.
The Jets will have been buoyed on by their surprise win in their opening game where they narrowly defeated the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 18-17 on Sunday. Through that game they were able to grind out the points when it mattered and their defense held out well to keep the Buccaneers to just 17 points.
The Jets recorded 304 yards offensively through the game; split between 214 yards on pass, and 90 yards on rush.
Rookie Geno Smith wasn't that great looking through the preseason and also missed some time on the field with a minor injury. However, come the start of the regular season he performed solidly against the Buccaneers.
Meanwhile the Patriots also got off to a winning start to the season as most expected, however, the nature of their win was extremely different to what most analysts had predicted. They only overcame the Buffalo Bills by two points, 23-21. At the end of the day a win is a win, however, most had expected the Patriots to demolish the Bills. Buffalo though would not lie down, and they came close to turning over the Patriots and shocking everyone.
Both Danny Amendola and Rob Gronkowski,are both listed as doubtful on the injury report, meaning Tom Brady will have extra burden to make things work tonight.
