Game Preview: Jets at Patriots

The New England Patriots and New York Jets will meet for the second time in 2018 with the Patriots looking for their 19th series sweep, the third straight, 12th since Robert Kraft purchased the team and 10th of the Bill Belichick era. The Patriots beat the Jets, 27-13, on Nov. 25, at MetLife Stadium.

New England will close out the regular season by hosting the Jets for the second straight season. Last year, the Patriots ran away with a 26-6 victory over the Jets in the regular-season finale at Gillette Stadium.

New England leads the series 64-54-1 overall. The Patriots are 34-25-1 all-time against the Jets at home, including 13-3 at Gillette Stadium in the regular season and 1-1 at home in the playoffs.

The teams have played in the postseason three times – a 1985 Wild Card game, a 2006 Wild Card game and an AFC Divisional game in 2010. New England beat the Jets, 26-14, in 1985 at the Meadowlands en route to Super Bowl XX. In 2006, the Patriots defeated the Jets, 37-16, at Gillette Stadium and the Jets beat the Patriots, 28-21, in a 2010 Divisional Playoff game in Foxborough.

New England is 35-16 against the Jets since Robert Kraft purchased the team in 1994.

New England’s 64 overall victories over the Jets (including two playoff wins) are the second most over any single opponent, trailing only the 73 (4) all-time wins over Buffalo.
