Poll: Can Jets upset Patriots?
By James Walker
The New England Patriots (7-3) will travel to face the rival New York Jets (4-6) on Thanksgiving night. There are a lot of things going on in New York’s favor that could make this a big upset.
Can the Jets pull it off?
New York nearly beat the Patriots at Gillette Stadium in Week 7. The Jets played well but ran out of gas at the end during a 29-26 overtime loss. The Jets usually have a good gameplan of how to play New England.
Injuries also have to be a concern. The Patriots lost starting tight end Rob Gronkowski to a broken forearm. He is the team’s best scoring threat. The Patriots also are coming off a short week of preparation and time to adjust the offense.
The Jets played well in a win over St. Louis and will be desperately fighting to keep their season alive. Using our SportsNation poll, vote on whether the Jets will pull a Thanksgiving upset against New England. You can also share your thoughts in the comment section below.
