The Patriots will travel to the Meadowlands in Week 3.
The Patriots are entering the game trying to bounce back from an 0-2 start, while the Jets are reeling after losing starting quarterback Aaron Rodgers to a torn Achilles and getting blown out in Week 2. Needless to say, the game will be a big one for both teams.

Howard had a rest day on Wednesday, not injury-related.
Offensively, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle (concussion) and running back Salvon Ahmed (groin) did not practice. Cornerback Xavien Howard did not practice because he was given a rest day.
Coach Mike McDaniel was asked about Waddle and Ahmed when meeting with the media on Wednesday.
“Yes, he’s not practicing [Wednesday],” he said when asked if Waddle was still sidelined. “I’m not really worried about the timeline....
New England’s practice squad currently includes two openings.
The organization worked out rookie cornerback Cameron Brown, as shared by ESPN’s Mike Reiss.
Brown, 23, signed with the Los Angeles Chargers as an undrafted free agent in April. The Ohio State product saw 164 snaps between defense and special teams during preseason action before being waived at the NFL’s 53-man roster deadline in August.
Listed at 6 feet, 199 pounds, Brown finished his Buckeyes career as a graduate student last fall with 40 appearances, including...

Two games and two wins. I’m not, uh. I don’t know what to do with my hands.
If you’re reading this, you’re a Dolphins fan and that means you belong to an elite group of misfits who live for punishment and disappointment. Such is our lot in life. Or at least it has been for the better part of a century.
Yet, somehow, before the game kicked off between the Fins and The Belichick Bunch, I actually thought Miami was...
New York Jets cornerback Sauce Gardner doesn’t seem overly concerned about the New England Patriots ahead of the Week 3 matchup at MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The reigning Defensive Rookie of the Year has been matched up with some of the best wideouts the game has to offer, and played against opposing offenses that challenge defenses on every single snap.
“They don’t really have a complex offense,” Gardner told reporters Wednesday when asked about New England’s unit, per SNY. “It’s pretty simple for the quarterback to get. The gap scheme, everything is really simple. But they excel at it....
The Commanders are 2-0 — looking for a statement win as they welcome the Bills to FedEx Field this Sunday
The Buffalo Bills are back on the road this week, heading a bit south to take on the Washington Commanders in a Week 3 interconference matchup. The Bills are currently 6.5-point favorites with DraftKings Sportsbook heading into their 1 p.m. EDT matchup next Sunday at FedEx Field.
Interestingly, this will be the third time in four years for the Bills and Washington...
Is quarterback Josh Allen on the way to his best season yet?
Yes, you read the subheading correctly. Keep reading to find out if I think this is indeed the start of the best season yet for Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen.
Here are Josh Allen’s passing charts from the first two weeks.
When I look at the charts, I see a whole lot of green dots in the short passing game. Josh Allen through two weeks is 49/54 on passes that travel 10 yards and under. I’d say that’s...
The initial prognosis heading into Week 3 at MetLife Stadium.
The cornerback, receiver and returner was sidelined from Wednesday’s practice after a shoulder injury saw him downgraded to out last weekend against the Miami Dolphins.
Defensive tackle Davon Godchaux joined him as absent. But three members of the active roster were present after being questionable and inactive for the 24-17 loss in Foxborough: offensive tackle Trent Brown, guard Sidy Sow and corner Jonathan Jones.
Here’s the initial injury report ahead of Sunday’s 1...
The Patriots’ first Week 3 injury report held no surprises — with one exception.
Defensive lineman Christian Barmore was limited in Wednesday’s practice due to a knee issue. His status will be worth monitoring as the week progresses.
Marcus Jones was the only true non-participant after suffering a shoulder injury during last Sunday’s home loss to the Miami Dolphins. Defensive tackle Davon Godchaux also was absent, but only because he and his fiancee celebrated the birth of a baby girl on Tuesday.
Wednesday’s practice also saw cornerback Jonathan Jones and offensive linemen Trent Brown and Sidy Sow [all return to...
FOXBORO, Mass. — Multiple Patriots teammates can relate to what happened to Demario Douglas on Sunday.
Tight end Hunter Henry lost a fumble with two minutes remaining in the third game of his rookie season. He shared that story with Douglas this week, noting he was able to quickly bounce back with a touchdown catch in the very next game.
Running back Rhamondre Stevenson also experienced similar ignominy early in his New England career. But he had to wait much longer for his redemption.
Stevenson, who endured a rough rookie training camp in 2021, fumbled in his first game as...
We told you Bill Belichick was wrong to bench Demario Douglas on Sunday. But don’t take our word for it — take Devin McCourty’s.
Douglas, a sixth-round rookie receiver who already might be the Patriots’ best pass-catching weapon, didn’t play a single offensive snap against the Miami Dolphins after fumbling in the first quarter. New England went on to suffer a 24-17 loss in a game that Douglas absolutely could’ve impacted.
McCourty, who hasn’t shied away from voicing his opinion since retiring this past spring, was asked about Douglas’ benching during a Wednesday appearance on WEEI’s “The Greg Hill Show”...
New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick isn’t exactly known for his desire to speak to the media.
In fact, it probably isn’t inaccurate to say that he loathes weekly press conferences. That’s why he’s often a man of few words. But ahead of the Patriots’ matchup with the New York Jets in Week 3, the 71-year-old hit on the unofficial slogan for such weeks leading up to these rivalry matchups with three words to open his Wednesday media availability.
“It’s Jets week,” Belichick said, per team-provided transcript.
Oh yeah, he also sprinkled in 300 more words about...
