The (8-2) New England Patriots will travel to face the (3-7) New York Jets.
QB Tom Brady and the Patriots are hoping to eliminate the Jets from AFC East contention with a win on Sunday. A win would move the Patriots to 9-2, while the Jets would be unable to win more than 8 games.
The Patriots are also trying to clinch their 16th straight winning season, which would tie the 1965-80 Oakland Raiders and the 1983-98 San Francisco 49ers for the 2nd longest streak in NFL history. The 1966-85 Dallas Cowboys hold the NFL record with 20 straight winning seasons.
The Patriots have the longest streak of winning seasons in the salary cap era, with the 2002-10 Indianapolis Colts (9 straight) a distant 2nd. The Packers have the 2nd longest active streak at 7 straight seasons. The Bengals are in 3rd with 5 straight, while the Seahawks and Broncos have the 4th longest active streak at 4 straight seasons.
Seven of the past eight games between the Patriots and Jets have been decided by one score, with three of them going to overtime. The Patriots haven’t lost a game to the Jets in regular time since 2010, when New York won both the week 2 game and the divisional round game.
