Another rarity with Pats & Jets
By Mike Reiss
The Jets enter Monday's game against the Patriots with a 5-0 record on the road this season.
The Patriots counter with a 5-0 record at home this season, with quarterback Tom Brady having won his last 25 regular-season starts at home, which ties Brett Favre's NFL record.
How rare is it that 5-0 road team faces a 5-0 home team?
Very rare, according to Elias Sports Bureau, as this will mark just the sixth time in NFL history that it's happened. The home team has won the last three and is 3-1-1 overall.
The breakdown, according to Elias (winners in bold):
2005: Colts (7-0) at
1999: Jaguars (7-0) at
1985: Bears (5-0) at
at Bears (5-0)
1929: Packers (5-0) at Yellow Jackets (6-0-2)
