Don't forget to pop over to ESPNBoston.com to check out this week's edition of Bruschi's Breakdown.

Tedy Bruschi, the ESPN analyst and former New England Patriots linebacker, takes a look at Sunday's rematch against the New York Jets in Gillette Stadium. The Jets were feeling quite happy with themselves when they won the first meeting 16-9 at the Meadowlands in Week 2.

So much has changed since then.

The Jets' aggressive defense made Tom Brady skittish, but he's much more comfortable on that reconstructed left knee and the Jets don't have nose tackle Kris Jenkins anymore. The Patriots didn't have Wes Welker in Week 2, but Jets also have added receiver Braylon Edwards since then.

Bruschi and ESPNBoston.com writer Mike Reiss cover considerable ground in hashing out the game, including the notion that playing a team that already has beaten them will shake the Patriots out of whatever daze the Indianapolis Colts put them in.

Bruschi shares what it was like in the locker room this week after Bill Belichick's infamous fourth-down call against Indy, talks about the Randy Moss-Darrelle Revis showdown, takes a look at how left tackle Matt Light will be eased back into the lineup and predicts different defensive looks from Jets coach Rex Ryan.

I recommend checking it out if you want to feel smarter about football.
