New England Patriots have had two AFC East derbies to start the season, going down to the Dolphins by a point and thumping the struggling Jets 25-6.
Their defence torched Jets QB Zach Wilson for four interceptions and the Pats have conceded the equal-second-least points in the league. Mac Jones, meanwhile, looks promising in New England’s cavernous, Brady-shaped void.
New Orleans Saints came back to earth after a 38-3 beatdown of the Packers, humbled 26-7 by the Panthers. Jameis Winston rushed in a touchdown but his stocks plummeted after a Week 1 blinder, putting up some ugly passing stats (11/22, 111 yards, 0 TDs, 2 INTs).
The Patriots have won five of their last six against the Saints, whose last victory at Foxborough was in 1995.
There’s no Brady or Brees, but the Jones-Winston battle holds a fair amount of intrigue – and there were some worrying signs last week for the Saints that should have the Patriots secondary licking their lips.
