Patriots QB Tom Brady expected to play vs. Jets

NFL Week 6 early odds Patriots predicted to crush Jets in AFC East showdown NFL Week 6 early odds Patriots predicted to crush Jets in AFC East showdown

The only outlier will be when they face the Jets on Sunday.

Brady (left shoulder) and Gronkowski (thigh) were limited participants in Thursday's practice session, as were running back Rex Burkhead (ribs), cornerback Stephon Gilmore (ankle), linebacker Dont'a Hightower (knee), linebacker Elandon Roberts (ankle), special teamer Matthew Slater (hamstring).

The Jets (3-2) have a chance to seize sole possession of the AFC East lead this Sunday, when they host the Patriots (3-2) at MetLife Stadium. "We all want to do a better job, we all want to play better". With that in mind, defenses have been able to design plays to hit Brady with more frequency. For as bad as the Patriots' defense has been this year, Brady and the offense are still rolling. "You just try to go out there and do the best you can". Compare that to Jets quarterback Josh McCown, who is off to a great start in his own right, with 1,020 yards, five touchdowns and four interceptions. That's how good Brady has been.

He's also been sacked 16 times, more than in all 12 games he played in past year. He's also taken 32 QB hits according to ESPN.

We've listed protecting Brady as a goal pretty much every week this season, and at some point, the Patriots have to actually do it.

Without Julian Edelman, the New England Patriots have turned to veteran Danny Amendola in the slot and he's been extremely reliable through the first five weeks.

Brady was hit 19 times and sacked nine times in three playoff games. The Patriots aren't getting pressure on the quarterback or getting stops in the red zone. They can't sack you if you're handing the ball off. The injury kept him out of the victory in Cleveland and it's not clear yet that he'll be ready to roll for New England.

The New England defense has not been great, but this is a great spot for them to get healthy. "It gives us an opportunity to see where we're really at".
