What To Watch For

These New York Jets have been a lot of fun to watch over the last month.

Gang Green is riding a four-game win streak coming into their Week 16 tilt against the New England Patriots and things are looking really, really good from a New York perspective.

The four straight wins haven’t always been pretty. Saturday’s over Dallas certainly wasn’t. But they’ve been wins and as far as the Jets are concerned, that’s all that matters.

That’s all that matters this week as well. Winning.

If New York is going to take down the Patriots, then the Jets need to keep focusing on what has been working. Ryan Fitzpatrick needs to stay calm in the pocket and find Brandon Marshall and/or Eric Decker in the end zone. It doesn’t matter which one. They’ve both been phenomenal.

Meanwhile, the defense needs to keep hitting and hitting hard.

“We have more than enough talent,” outside linebacker Calvin Pace told the New York Daily News. “We have great chemistry. We have a good mix of old and young players…. It is working. I think finally everybody bought all the way in.”

So, yeah, it’s going to be hard. It’s not in the Jets control. But the Jets don’t care about that. They care about winning the next one.
