Both team find themselves atop the division after the Patriots fended off the upstart Buffalo Bills, 23-21, while the Jets came away with a rather surprising 18-17 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1.
This contest not only looks to break the teams’ 1-0 deadlock in 2013, but to also break the rivals’ all-time regular-season series record of 51-51-1.
While their series record is a standoff, these two teams could not be built more differently.
