Roundtable: 3 Pats-Jets questions

By ESPNBoston.com



In the first of three roundtable segments we will be rolling out in advance of Sunday’s game (video above), ESPNBoston.com’s Mike Reiss, ESPNNewYork.com’s Jane McManus and ESPN’s Herm Edwards break down Patriots-Jets by addressing the following three questions:

* What to make of all the trash talk by the Jets this week?

“They heard every word of it and they’re storing it up and they’re ready to bring it on Sunday,” Says Reiss. “Tom Brady in particular, I got a sense from listening to him speak that he feels like you earn the right to speak with victories and I think he feels like he has a point to prove.”

* Who will win this key matchup: Patriots run defense or the Jets’ ground-and-pound attack?

* Should the Jets blitz Brady or should they focus their energy on coverage?
