It's game time for the Patriots vs Jets live stream, and we've got two rookies looking for their first win as quarterbacks in the NFL. But only one at least played well in their losing effort last week, while the other will look to show why he was a number two overall pick in this NFL live stream

Mac Jones was selected by the Patriots with the 15th overall selection in April’s NFL Draft. Zach Wilson went off the board at number two. In their NFL debuts, however, it was Jones who looked like the higher pick.

In the Patriots’ week one loss to the Dolphins, Jones completed 29-of-his-39 passes for 281 yards and a touchdown to veteran wideout Nelson Agholor. By games’ end, he posted a 102.6 passer rating. The lone blemish in his game was allowing too many drives to stall as the offense settled for three field goals. One drive, the most crucial of the game, stalled when the lead and likely the win was within the Pats’ reach. 

After an interception by New England corner Jonathan Jones, the Pats’ offense took over at the 50-yard line trailing by a point. Mac Jones would go 3-for-3 on the drive and helped his team get to the Dolphins’ 10-yard line. Needing just a field goal to take the lead, they went conservative and handed the ball to running back Damien Harris. Harris  then fumbled the ball away as he was stripped by Xanien Howard. The Patriots went on to lose 17-16.    

The inactives are as follows:

Patriots: T Trent Brown (T), Kyle Van Noy (OLB), Rhamondre Stevenson (RB), Shaun Wade (DB), Devin Asiasi (TE), Ronnie Perkins (LB)

Jets: Adams (RB), Perine (RB), Sherwood (LB), Pinnock (CB), Marshall (DL), Mims (WR), Crowder (WR)

Zach Wilson also took an “L” in his NFL debut, falling to Sam Darnold and the Panthers last week 19-14. Wilson’s numbers weren’t as impressive as Jones’ posting an 82.9 passer rating while throwing his first career interception and taking six sacks in the loss. Wilson was able to find Corey Davis for two touchdowns in the loss.

The Patriots are a 5.5-point favorite against the Jets. The over/under is 43.

You can get your local CBS network's NFL games via Paramount Plus, if you want.

The NFL game broadcast rights have stayed similar season over season. CBS gets AFC games on Sunday afternoons, FOX has the NFC games, NBC has Sunday Night Football and some Thursday night football, while ESPN has Monday Night Football. Amazon Prime Video has some Thursday Night Football games, while the NFL Network will continue to offer a bunch of games throughout the year. 

So, that makes it really easy to recommend where cord-cutters should turn to watch the NFL season: Fubo TV. Built for all things sports, Fubo has all three of those local broadcasters, plus ESPN and NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling TV doesn't have CBS (not without AirTV at least), so while that's one of our favorite services, it's not ideal for football fans.

Fubo.TV:a 7-day free trial

Fubo.TV: One of the best streaming services with FOX, and the top pick for watching all of the 2021 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right network channels and the two cable channels you don't want to go without.
