It's time for the New York Jets to enter the tough part of their 2017 schedule.
To their credit, most of the Jets acknowledged after Sunday's sloppy victory over the winless Browns that they'll have to play much better to have shot to beat the visiting Patriots this week.
Bill Belichick and company may have figured something out in last week's win over Tampa Bay, even if the Pats remain the worst defense in the league on paper.
We (the media) will do that for them.
With a victory, Brady would break a tie with Brett Favre and Peyton Manning for the most regular-season wins by a starting quarterback in National Football League history with 187.
Playing against a signal caller who's actually older than him will be something rare these days for McCown, who has faced Buffalo's Tyrod Taylor (28), Oakland's Derek Carr (26), Jacksonville's Blake Bortles (25) and Cleveland's DeShone Kizer (21) and Kevin Hogan (24).
And who wouldn't want to play in a game with first place on the line in the AFC East? "We haven't done a great job of that, and not playing great football at the start of a game doesn't get you a lead, so you're trying to fight and claw back the whole way".
"We have, in no way, arrived", left tackle Kelvin Beachum said after the win over the Browns.
Arvind Kejriwal's Wagon R stolen: Twitter torque on AAPmobile's fate
Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal's famous blue Wagon R has been reported stolen since Thursday afternoon. The Wagon R was called the " AAP Mobile" as Kejriwal had used to sleep and camp in it during many protests.
Brady is off to a terrific start statistically, leading the National Football League with 1,702 yards passing while ranking second with a 112.0 passer rating. We know what we have to do.
The Patriots have won five of the last six meetings between the teams, including a series sweep last season. "Passing game - he's got good quickness, good power, good length".
The Patriots come to MetLife Stadium on Sunday to face the Jets surrounded by questions from doubters. He has 54 catches against the Jets, his most vs. any opponent, for 655 yards and six TDs in 11 games.
Tom Brady (shoulder) said, "I'll be there Sunday", when asked about his status for Week 6 against the Jets. "I'm getting good moves, it's just sometimes (the quarterback) gets the ball out just in time, or sometimes he feels the pressure and scrambles out of the pocket". However, Kansas City is worst in that category at a net of 26.2 yards lost per game in penalties, and the Chiefs are the only undefeated team in the NFL. "But we really look forward to that challenge and seeing where we stack up".
Still, the Jets realize penalties have contributed to them not being able to score more than 23 points in a game this season.
Brady has been getting hit this year with more frequency than before.
"We have a lot of trust and faith in him", Belichick, speaking to reporters in Foxborough, Mass., this week, said of Hogan. Gronkowski also didn't practice Wednesday because of a thigh bruise but is expected to play.
