1. Can the Jets stop the Oregon Offense?
Much has been made about the new offense Bill Belicheck has installed in New England this year. It has led to the Patriots having by far the most offensive attempts in 2012 and has helped them keep defenses on their toes.
At the same time, this is a team that is an uncharacteristic 3-3. Is this offense wearing down in games because of this technique? Is this hurting Tom Brady, who had two intentional grounding penalties last week against the Seahawks?
Jets will be without some key players on defense like starting DT Sione Po’uha, backup DT Kendrick Ellis, and SS Eric Smith. Those losses could be painful when substituting is such an important factor in this game.
