Win Over New England Patriots Would Be Career-Defining Game For Geno Smith
Geno Smith‘s rookie campaign for the New York Jets has been a mixed bag of sorts. Despite a few turnover-happy games, Smith has brought the Jets to new heights with three game-winning drives through six weeks of action. Moreover, Smith still has a ton to work on. First and foremost, any Jets’ signal-caller needs to prove that he can beat teams inside the AFC East.
New York currently has a 1-1 record against its division with the lone loss coming against the New England Patriots. Now, Bill Belichick‘s team may be extremely depleted, yet it still has Tom Brady, who always make sure the Patriots are ready to play. The Jets square off against the division-leading Pats in Week 7.
The Patriots are expected to be without Rob Gronkowski like usual, but middle linebacker Jerod Mayo has been ruled out and Aqib Talib is also unlikely to suit up for New England, despite both playing in each of the Patriots’ first six games. This is a huge opportunity for Smith to shine, and for the Jets to pick up a game in the standings.
The Jets have not beaten the Patriots in a regular season game since 2010 and have dropped five consecutive meetings against Belichick’s bunch. With that being said, this is a golden opportunity for Smith to not only keep the Jets above .500, but help solidify his bid for the NFL‘s 2013 Offensive Rookie of the Year.

Maybe they can be by Week 17, maybe Dan Quinn can pull the best out of his weakest role players, but right now, they’ve still got a ways to go. Here are the three biggest weaknesses on the Falcons roster: Read More
