The Patriots are simply one other group now bringing smiles to many Patriot haters worldwide. Prediction: Jets 30 Patriots 20.
Dallas at New York Giants: This can be a playoff sport in itself and the NFC East is sophisticated, to say the least. With a Giants win and a Washington loss, the ‘Giants take the division title with a remaining report of 6-10. Yikes.
