Positive: Jason McCourty had a solid game against the Jets, and has been pretty good for most of the season, according to Steven.

Negative: Jonathan Jones struggled in coverage against the Jets, and didn’t play a lot in the second half.

Special teams action: How did the Patriots special teams perform with their new additions in the fold?

Red zone issues: The boys also discuss if the red zone problems are concerning, and wonder if they can be fixed in time for the playoffs.
