Three Match-Ups To Watch

The Jets are seeking a playoff win at Foxboro, not an easy task. A look at three key matchups for the divisional playoff game.

Three Key Match-Ups To Watch

1. Antonio Cromartie v. Tom Brady:

After saying that he hated the Jets quarterback and referring to him as a body part, Cromartie put a giant target on his back. Brady said he won't key in on the Jets cornerback but you know that he'd like to point towards the sideline and celebrate a Patriots touchdown against Cromartie. Edge: Patriots

2. Shonn Greene v. Patriots Front Four:

The Jets abandoned the ground game early against New England but Shonn Greene still churned out 64 yards on limited carries. Against the Patriots, Greene should be able to run the ball effectively in the return of the Ground & Pound. If Greene tops 100 yards, the Jets can win. Advantage: Jets

3. Patriots Tight Ends v. Jets Linebackers:

The most important personnel piece in the Patriots pass offense isn't Wes Welker or Deion Branch, it is their tight ends. Brady loves to find the tight ends being covered by undersized cornerbacks or slower linebackers. It's is their bread and butter. Advantage: Patriots

Prediction

New England 21

New York 10
