This one probably won't go well, but we'll be tuning in anyway. The New York Jets head to Gilette Stadium to have their usual divisional matchup against the New England Patriots, which will probably be a slaughter in the Pats' favor.
However, there are some compelling reasons to watch Jets vs. Patriots. Backup quarterback Trevor Siemian will continue to try to prove himself while Sam Darnold remains sidelined with mononucleosis. On the other end, we'll see a New England Patriots team without Antonio Brown, who was dropped roughly a week after he was picked up due to continued sexual assault allegations. Will the drama affect Tom Brady and co? Probably not, but we're not going to turn down an opportunity to see him sling some deep touchdown passes.
Don't have cable? Fret not. Here's your complete guide on how to watch Jets vs. Patriots online.
