5 keys for the Patriots to beat the Jets in Week 2

The New England Patriots have a chance to get their season back on track in Week 2 against the developing and rebuilding New York Jets. Both the Patriots and the Jets drafted quarterbacks in 2021 and both quarterbacks (Mac Jones and Zach Wilson) will start this week.

Anytime a team takes a quarterback, it’s a signal they are rebuilding. But New England is further along, with coach Bill Belichick spending big in the offseason to help accelerate the turnaround after a disappointing 7-9 season. Jones has a stronger supporting cast than Wilson, which is why the Patriots should win this game.
