Tom E. Curran believes the Patriots should notch a blowout win against their New York rivals and lays out three keys to making it happen.
First off is the ground and pound. The Patriots have their best running game in years and the Jets allow 150 yards per game on the ground. It's a no-brainer.
Second, the Patriots have to stay away from the breakdowns on defense. They can't allow the Jets to make explosive plays. That starts by keeping Mark Sanchez in the pocket and keeping the secondary from doing whatever it was that they did last week in Seattle.
Finally, the Patriots have to keep their foot on the gas. They have to sustain offensive pressure and when they get a lead (and Curran says they will get the lead) they can't let up. They have to go for the kill and put up some crooked numbers on offense.
Curran predicts a Patriots blowout, but it will take a complete effort to get it done.
