There's some pretty bad blood between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets. They know it, and so does everyone else.
The Jets have not beat the Patriots since 2015, and even then, they won by the skin of their teeth -- 26-20 in overtime. The rivalry has been extremely one-sided, with New England holding a 15-4 record against New York since 2010.
Jets defensive end Leonard Williams detailed just how frustrating it is that the Patriots have won each of their last six meetings.
"It makes your hatred for them a little bit more because it's so one-sided, and you really want to beat them," Leonard Williams said according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. "It's really annoying when I think about it."
Even wide receiver Robby Anderson detailed just how important it is for the Jets to come out with a win Sunday.
"It's been tough," Anderson said. "Usually, when we play them, it's late in the year. Our hopes are down and we know we're not going to the playoffs, so collectively the players on the team in the past, they were already clocked out. This year is a little bit different. We have the whole year ahead of us. It's early in the year and we're a little more fresh. I'm just itching to get that win."
Safety Rontez Miles added that the Jets need to execute perfectly against the Bill Belichick coached Patriots, if they don't, they're not going to win.
"It's never about talent, it's about executing damn near perfectly against them," said Miles, trying to describe the secret sauce. "They're not a team that's going to beat you with talent and speed. They're stacked this year -- they have a good roster -- but even in the past, they weren't a more talented roster [compared] to us, but they played sound football."
Jets defensive end John Franklin-Myers, who was a member of the Los Angeles Rams' team defeated by the Patriots in Super Bowl 53, is particularly interested in seeking revenge for last seasons epic loss.
"Yeah, it hurt for a while," Franklin-Myers said. "But getting a chance to come to this division, I get a chance to play them twice a year. It kind of lights that fire. Now I'm looking forward to playing them because I get that chance at revenge."
If New York is hoping for redemption on Sunday, they should think again. New England now is a 23-point favorite to defeat the Jets in this weekend's matchup.
