The Jets will have the opportunity to do that with a healthy squad as Sam Cowart (thigh) is expected to play.
The Patriots will also going into the game in the Meadowlands relatively healthy. Safety Chris Akins (leg) and center Damien Woody (flu) are the most serious injuries and they are questionable. Wide receiver Deion Branch (finger) and linebacker Ted Johnson (neck) are both probable.
