PATRIOTS NOTEBOOK: Brady says sprained shoulder will be fine

13 October, 2017, 00:53 | Author: Sylvester Abbott
  • The Jets have rallied together to put together an improbable 3-2 record

We say this every year and he keeps getting better.

Just don't try to tell the Jets the Patriots have declined at all. Brady has already been sacked 16 times this season - that's one more sack than he had in 12 games a year ago. It may even mean sitting him late in the season if it looks like the Patriots are locked into their playoff position.

However, while the Patriots offense looks capable of surviving with this arrangement, it does expose them to a new challenge.

Amendola hadn't played that many offensive snaps in a game since December 6, 2015, in a 35-28 loss to the Eagles.

Last season, Brady threw for five touchdowns and zero interceptions in his two games against the Jets, both of which resulted in Patriots wins. "I didn't know. It would be great to continue to lead the league", he said.

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. They can't sack you if you're handing the ball off. He's the No. 3 receiver and top punt returner, having totaled 23 catches for 267 yards, with one touchdown, to go along with six punt returns for 112 yards (18.7 average). The sacks have been slow to come for the Green & White so far, but there are other ways to make quarterbacks uncomfortable, such as PDs, hits and hurries. The New England Patriots are -9.5 over the New York Jets in this game on Sunday afternoon.

The Jets did manage to overcome the Browns to win their third game in a row. In eight of the last 10 meetings between the Jets and Patriots, the winning margin has been seven or less. In fact, the only pass catchers without four or more plays of 20+ yards this season are the only pass catchers with fewer than ten targets. He is back at practice, but we'll have to wait and see if he officially practices.

"We've had a hard time down there, played a couple of overtime games, got beat two years ago", Belichick said.
