5 New England Patriots weaknesses the NY Jets must exploit

The matchup between the New England Patriots’ tight ends and the New York Jets‘ defense will be one of the most important factors in the divisional rivals’ Week 2 matchup – but it’s not as one-sided of a matchup as you might think.

New England formed an intimidating duo of tight ends in free agency with their signings of Hunter Henry and Jonnu Smith. Henry and Smith had a solid 2021 debut in the passing game as they caught all eight of their combined targets for 73 yards and four first downs. They will certainly be a matchup problem through the air for the Jets’ paper-thin linebacker and safety groups.
