The New England Patriots have managed to overcome key injuries all season to put up a 5-1 record, while the New York Jets have jumped on the back of a rookie quarterback to reach a 3-3 start. These two teams have always played each other well, and you can watch Patriots vs Jets online free live streaming football on CBS in week 7 on the NFL schedule this Sunday by following the links presented below.
Tom Brady added to his Hall of Fame resume in a win against the Saints last week that required a game-winning drive in the final minute of play. Down by four with 73 seconds left on the clock, Brady marched his team down the field against a previously undefeated Saints squad and hit rookie Kenbrell Thompkins for a touchdown with five seconds remaining on the clock. We can only hope that when we watch Patriots vs Jets on CBS or online streaming today that the game is as thrilling.
Brady’s targets have been a moving target all season due to injuries and a key piece, Wes Welker, departing for Denver during the offseason. Over the past four games, Thompkins has stepped up and caught a touchdown per game. Free agent acquisition Danny Amendola has been in and out with injury, so Thompkins’ coming out party has been much needed and could continue today.
A big piece of New England’s air attack set to make his season debut against the Jets today is Rob Gronkowski. The tight end has finally been given a green light by doctors to suit up and play after surgeries on his back and left forearm. Brady is hitting his stride this season and Gronkowski gives him one more target to punish opposing secondaries with.
The Jets and Patriots played one another in week 2 and the Patriots came out on top 13-10 playing at home. Brady was only sacked one time in that contest, but the Jets defense has stepped it up since and flattened opposing quarterbacks 16 times over the past month. With the Jets defense allowing only 75.7 yards per game on the ground, the Patriots air attack could prove crucial to the outcome of the game.
Coach Rex Ryan will need to see some more offensive pop out of his starting unit. Last week in a miserable loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, rookie quarterback Geno Smith was 19 for 34 and only threw for 201 yards. He also threw two interceptions and didn’t throw a touchdown pass.
Against the Patriots in week 2, Smith had his poorest outing of the season by throwing for 214 yards, getting sacked four times and throwing three interceptions. The Patriots defense knows what to expect and that won’t make it any easier on the rookie when his opposite is one of the best quarterbacks in the league.
In addition to wide receiver Amendola sitting, the Patriots defense will be missing some key pieces with linebacker Jerod Mayo and tackle Vince Wilfork both lost for the season, and cornerback Aqib Talib also expected to sit.

The Patriots are first in the AFC East while the Jets are third. Everything points to a New England win, though I think it will be a close game and end up with a 26-23 final score in the Patriots favor.
