All indications this week have been that Tom Brady will play against the Jets. On Saturday we got another.
The Patriots quarterback, who sat out of Wednesday and Thursday's practices with a knee injury, posted to Facebook that he's making the trip to New York. Whatever's limiting him physically, it seems, will not be enough to keep him away from MetLife Stadium Sunday.

The Patriots have plenty of other starters who, like Brady, are questionable for this weekend's matchup. Rob Gronkowski (chest), Julian Edelman (foot), Martellus Bennett (ankle/shoulder), Chris Hogan (back) and Cyrus Jones (illness) have all been listed as questionable.
Martellus Bennett is moving on from the game of football.
The former Patriots tight end announced his retirement Friday night on Twitter, stating he is shifting his focus to his multimedia production company, The Imagination Agency.
Bennett, 31, had 55 receptions for 701 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 games during the 2016 season with New England. After rejoining the Patriots in 2017, Bennett battled hamstring and shoulder injuries but did play in two games, catching six passes for 53 yards.
Bennett also played with the Cowboys, Giants, Bears, and Packers over the course of his 10-year career.
An arrest has been made in the Super Bowl week burglary at Rob Gronkowski's house.
Foxboro police announced Friday they have arrested 31-year-old Anthony Almeida, who has been charged with breaking and entering, receiving stolen property and malicious destruction of property.
The police also said they are searching for two other suspects, 26-year-old Shayne Denn and 28-year-old Eric Tyrrell.
Items taken from Gronkowski's house in the burglary included an Apple Watch, Rolex, and rare coins from the 1800s. Fortunately, those items have been recovered and Gronk will be getting them back. Police are still searching for the guns that were stolen from the house.
