Jets filled with hatred towards Patriots, 'itching' to get the win

Jets filled with hatred towards Patriots, 'itching' to get the win

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.

Patriots vs. Bengals live stream: Watch NFL Week 15 game online

The New England Patriots will play their final road game of the regular season in Sunday's Week 15 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals.

The defending Super Bowl champions are desperate for a win after two consecutive losses. The Patriots have not lost three or more games in a row since 2002, and another defeat Sunday could drop them from the No. 2 seed to the No. 3 seed in the AFC playoff picture, which would put them in significant danger of not earning a first-round playoff bye.

On paper, this game is a complete mismatch. The Patriots defense is one of the NFL's best and should limit a bad Bengals offense that's largely responsible for their league-worst 1-12 record. The Patriots offense has been pretty bad of late, too, and if Tom Brady and Co. don't jump out to a quick lead, this game could get surprisingly competitive.

And, of course, there's the story of the Patriots being investigated by the NFL for videotaping the Bengals' sideline during Cincinnati's Week 14 road game in Cleveland. This investigation is still ongoing, as of this writing.

Will the Patriots earn a much-needed victory, or will the Bengals shock the world and hand New England a potentally devastating loss in the AFC playoff race?

Report: Pats' punishments for videotaping could include fines, draft picks

Report: Pats' punishments for videotaping could include fines, draft picks

While the investigation into the New England Patriots' illicit videotaping of the Cincinnati Bengals' sideline last weekend is ongoing, The Washington Post's Mark Maske is reporting that the punishment could be aligned in severity with similiar game-day violations committed by other NFL teams in recent years.

That means fines in the range of six figures and/or a reduced round value on a draft pick — or worse still, the loss of one altogether:

"The NFL is likely to penalize the New England Patriots for their admitted violation of league video policy last weekend and is contemplating disciplinary measures in line with those imposed on teams in recent seasons for infractions of game-day rules, according to people familiar with the deliberations.

That could mean a fine in the hundreds of thousands of dollars and potentially the loss or reduction in value of a draft choice, typically a lower-level pick."

CURRAN: Preventable controversy is the last thing Belichick needed>>>

Looking for something similar to what the Patriots were levied for Spygate? Maske points out that punishment was clearly an exception, not a guardrail:

The Patriots have admitted wrongdoing in last Sunday's incident in Cleveland, in which a credentialed Patriots video crew member was caught filming the Bengals' sideline during their game against the Browns. New England has said the camera crew was there to feature a scout as part of their "Do Your Job" video series.
