Last year, the 12-4 Patriots only beat the 4-12 Jets 17-16 at MetLife Stadium. In 2013, the Jets beat the Patriots at home, 30-27.

N.Y. Jets: The Jets are hot, confident, healthy and desperate. There are a lot of intangibles in their favor. It will be close; the last five meetings have been decided by seven points or fewer. Jets 24, Patriots 23. -- Rich Cimini

New England: This could easily go the other way. The Patriots figure to be without receivers Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola, and tight end Rob Gronkowski might be limited after showing signs that his right knee was still an issue Sunday. Patriots 17, Jets 16. -- Mike Reiss

The Jets' best hope might be to pound Chris Ivory, who will be facing a Dont'a Hightower-less defense (or at least a defense with a hampered Hightower). The Broncos' rushing numbers shot through the roof in Week 12 when Hightower had to leave early with an injury.

The Patriots no doubt view New York as one of the more dangerous teams that could potentially be an opponent in the AFC playoffs.

The Jets are still in the playoff hunt, but the Patriots need this to lock up the No. 1 seed in the AFC.
