NFL Week 2 Preview, Prediction: New England Patriots Vs. New York Jets

New England Patriots (1-0) vs. New York Jets (0-1)

When: 4:00 p.m. Sunday, CBS

SB Nation Patriots: Pats Pulpit

SB Nation Jets: Gang Green Nation

Breakdown: Arguably the best rivalry in the game today kicks off on Sunday afternoon. The Patriots are coming off of a big win while the Jets are coming off of a loss. After talking big throughout the offseason, you can imagine the Jets are feeling desperate right now.  The Patriots strength is their offense while the Jets strength is their defense. This is the game of the week.

Player to Watch: Mark Sanchez. The Jets will have to score points against the Patriots. This isn't the Ravens where two touchdowns might be able to get it done. If the Jets have a shot, Sanchez needs to be a competent quarterback.

Line: Patriots are three point favorites.

Prediction: When you know the Patriots will score at least a couple of touchdowns, how can you watch last week's game and expect the Jets to top that? Take the Patriots.
