To the Patriots' delight, the New York Jets are in the midst of a typical rookie season with quarterback Zach Wilson chucking it all over the park. Sometimes he hits his playmakers with improbable throws and sometimes he throws it right to the opponent. As a result, the one win in 2021 should not be a shock. However, Zach Wilson will give his first second shot at a team. Will he show improvement?

The New England Patriots are very close to falling into a two-season hole after losing Tom Brady. Mac Jones appears to be getting better each week, but it isn't turning into wins. Can the Patriots get within a game of .500 with a win over the Jets? How is the health of the Patriots and Jets heading into their matchup?
