New England Patriots Links 10/19/12 - Will Jets Trust Sanchez to Air it Out Sunday?

New England Patriots Daily News and Links for 10/19/12

Nick Laham

Christopher Price shares one NFL Scout's breakdown of Patriots-Jets, who suggests New York won't try to air it out despite New England's weak secondary.

"The Jets will not want to put the ball in Mark Sanchez’s hands too much, regardless of New England’s recent struggles in the secondary. Instead, New York will try to establish the run and try to get big chunks with the play-action pass. The Jets don’t seem to trust Sanchez or their offensive line enough to drop back and pass 40 times a game, particularly against a defensive line that includes Chandler Jones. Also, Sanchez is most effective when you don’t put it all on his shoulders, and the Jets also lack weapons in the passing game."
