Week 7 NFL preview: Patriots vs. Jets

Tom Brady and the Patriots are 5-1 but heavily flawed and riddled with injuries; the Jets are .500 and buoyed by a stingy defense. Can rookie Geno Smith guide New York to an upset victory at home? Matt Ufford previews the game and makes his pick.

The New York Jets have alternated wins and losses on a weekly basis this season, winning in Weeks 1, 3 and 5 and falling in Weeks 2, 4 and 6. Being that it's an odd-numbered week, Matt Ufford thinks they're due for a win over Tom Brady and the New England Patriots, who are emotionally exhausted coming off their last-second victory over the Saints last Sunday. After all, you can't beat a Ryan brother in back-to-back weeks, right?
