The Jets have not beaten the New England Patriots since Week 16 of the 2015 season, but this year could be different.

Just ask Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman. 

The Super Bowl LIII MVP has noticed what the Jets have done this offseason and expects Gang Green to be a challenge for the defending Super Bowl champions this upcoming season.

For Jets fans, the nightmare of a wide-open Rob Gronkowski streaking down the middle of the field is over. 

The former Patriots' tight end announced his retirement Sunday in a post on his Instagram page. It'd been speculated over the last few seasons Gronkowski would step away from the game, given the injuries the 29-year-old endured and the physical toll his massive frame was exposed to throughout a 16-game slate year in and year out.  

"Thank you to all of Pats Nation around the world for the incredible support since I have been apart of this 1st class organization," he wrote in the lengthy message. "Thank you for everyone accepting who I am and the dedication I have put into my work to be the best player I could be. But now its time to move forward and move forward with a big smile knowing that the New England Patriots Organization, Pats Nation, and all my fans will be truly a big part of my heart for rest of my life."

Gronk defends Patriots mascot 00:00:42
Jamal Adams made waves last week when he tackled the Patriots mascot at the Pro Bowl. Gronk was asked about revenge at Super Bowl Media Day.

Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski has a clear message for Jets safety Jamal Adams: An eye for an eye.

Gronkowski is nothing short of a team player and that helping hand extends to New England's mascot, Pat Patriot, after Adams mistakenly started beef with the five-time NFL champions.

Maybe Jets safety Jamal Adams had no way of knowing the circus of events that would follow after jokingly tackling the Patriots mascot during Pro Bowl festivities on Wednesday in Orlando, Fla. But the intended playful confrontation resulted in a serious aftermath.

THE GAME 

The Jets (4-11) against the New England Patriots (10-5) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Sunday, Dec. 30, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

It'll be cold, with temperatures barely above freezing and lots of clouds to make it feel even colder. It'll be dry at least, so that's something.

WHAT IT MEANS

A Patriots win would be the best thing for everyone. They are playing for a first-round bye in the playoffs, and the Jets still have a shot at the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft and a shot at Ohio State pass-rusher Nick Bosa.

Taking on Tom one more time 00:00:45
Todd Bowles and Leonard Williams talk about why the last game of the season against Tom Brady and the Patriots still matters on Sunday.

The Jets will wrap up their 2018 season Sunday in New England, but the team still wants to end the year on a high note with a win against their rival.

"We want to have a good taste in our mouth going into the offseason, and what better way of going out than beating the Patriots and Tom Brady?" said DE Leonard Williams. "They came into our home and beat us so we want to go back up there and do the same thing to them."

Todd Bowles said his approach is no different heading into Sunday than any other game.

New York Jets safety Jamal Adams wants fans to not quit on the team after their most recent loss to the New England Patriots.

Safety Jamal Adams has expressed his frustrations with the Jets' losing ways over the past two years. And even after Sunday's 27-13 loss to the New England Patriots dropped New York to 3-8 for its fifth straight loss, Adams was confident he and the rest of the team will turn things around.

"We get a lot of negative comments and we understand it," Adams told reporters after the game. "I get it. I get the frustration, but at the end of the day, we are hurting twice as much as you. So, just stick in there with us. We're going to figure it out. Do I know when? Do I know the timetable? No."

The Jets were more competitive this week, but still fell 27-13 to the AFC East-leading New England Patriots. Let's review three of the best and worst performances from Sunday's game.

Winners

QB Josh McCown

It was far from his best game as a Jet, but McCown passed for 276 yards and a touchdown in a steady performance that at least served the purpose of getting some of the Jets' offensive weapons involved and keeping New York in the game.

THE GAME 

The Jets (3-7) vs. the New England Patriots (7-3) at the Meadowlands in East Rutherford, New Jersey, on Sunday, Nov. 25, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

Compared to the Thanksgiving chill we've experienced around here, it'll be a beautiful day in the neighborhood on Sunday, with partly cloudy skies, light winds and temperatures in the low-to-mid 50s.

WHAT IT MEANS

The Jets are only two games back in the wild-card race, but let's be realistic: That's not happening. Not with the tough schedule they have down the stretch. What this game is all about is salvaging their pride and dignity after their humiliating, pre-bye week loss to the Buffalo Bills. That game might have just been enough to push ownership over the edge with head coach Todd Bowles, who seems more certain by the day to be fired at the end of the season. There's always time to change minds and the narrative, of course.

The Jets will be without QB Sam Darnold against the Patriots on Sunday but he is not the only banged-up quarterback heading into the game. 

Tom Brady was absent from the start of practice on Friday, raising concerns on just how healthy he is for this weekend's game against the Jets. 

The 41-year-old hurt his knee in a Week 10 loss to the Titans and Brady was also listed as limited in Wednesday's practice coming off the team's bye week.

Jets quarterback Sam Darnold is still uncertain for Sunday's game against the Patriots as he looks to return from a strained right foot.

Darnold dressed for practice for the second straight day but did not participate again, however he said he feels he's getting closer to returning.

"Every single day I feel like I'm progressing and I'm doing so much more in terms of learning and all that," Darnold said, according to NYJets.com's Randy Lange. "So hopefully I can do a little bit more tomorrow and see where we go from there."

Though Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has thrown just one touchdown over his last three games, the Jets are not buying into his decline ahead of Sunday's matchup.

"Man, I'm not taking him lightly," linebacker Avery Williamson said, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini. "I don't care if he didn't throw any touchdowns for a month. Man, Brady, he can still make it happen."

Though the Patriots are 7-3 are tied for the third-best record in the AFC, they are 2-1 over their last three games, with Brady's numbers not reminiscent of his potential.

The 2017 MVP and five-time Super Bowl champion has an 84.5 quarterback rating with 872 passing yards and one touchdown over his last 12 quarters. But even so, the Jets know what he's capable of.

THE GAME

The Jets (5-10) against the New England Patriots (12-3) at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Massachusetts, on Sunday, Dec. 31, at 1 p.m. ET.

THE WEATHER

Miserable. … OK, it's only miserable if you hate the cold, I guess. The high temperature is expected to be 14 degrees with winds of 10-15 mph. Plus, if you go, you get to deal with miles and miles of traffic on I-95 on the way home, on New Year's Eve no less. Yay?

WHAT IT MEANS

Nothing for the Jets, unless Christian Hackenberg enters, in which case I promise I'm paying attention. I suppose it could mean something for Todd Bowles' future, but really if they haven't made up their minds by now, what are they doing? As for the Patriots, they're still fighting for home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, and it's highly doubtful they're going to let the Jets stand in their way.

The Jets' defense hopes to regroup for Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons after New York lost back-to-back games against divisional opponents.

New York blew a two-touchdown lead in the fourth quarter by giving up 17 unanswered points in Sunday's 31-28 loss to the Miami Dolphins to fall to 3-4, but the defense is confident it can go back to the team that had allowed 13.3 points per game during its three-game winning streak.

"We win together. We lose together," defensive end Leonard Williams said, according to NJ.com's Connor Hughes. "The No. 1 thing we have to do is stick together and be a family. That's the one thing I can say: This team is a family."

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Jets sometimes seem like they've cornered the market on finding interesting new ways to lose. Five years ago, it was the infamous "Butt fumble." This time, it was a fumble that maybe, probably, never was.

But the differences between those two plays are as stark as the differences between those two teams. The "Butt fumble" was an embarrassment on Thanksgiving 2012 that turned Mark Sanchez and the Jets into a national joke. The fumble by Austin Seferian-Jenkins on Sunday -- the "What fumble," as some have named it -- wasn't funny to anyone.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- When tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins rolled into the end zone midway through the fourth quarter and the official's arms went up, the Jets were just like everyone else in the building and watching on TV: They were sure they had just scored a touchdown.

And long after their 24-17 loss to the New England Patriots, they were still shocked, confused and absolutely livid that the touchdown was overturned.

Doug Williams, Marc Malusis and Sal Licata discuss the Jets' position in the standings, tied with the reigning Super Bowl Champion Patriots.

The Jets have an opportunity to claim sole possession of first place in the AFC East on Sunday, and to do that they'll need to beat the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots.

And though the Patriots, which entered the season with the belief they could run the table and go undefeated, share a 3-2 record with the Jets (and Buffalo Bills), Jets head coach Todd Bowles said he knows what his team will be up against despite New England's slow start.

"They are still the same Patriots," Bowles said on Monday. "You have to knock them off the ladder. They are kings of the division right now, they won the Super Bowl. We have to come out and work on us and play hard and go into the game and try and compete and win."

While there was outside talk that the New York Jets were going to tank the 2017 season, the players aren't surprised after Sunday's 17-14 win over the Cleveland Browns at FirstEnergy Stadium gave them a three-game winning streak and put them in a three-way tie for first place in the AFC East.

"Sounds like that's how it's supposed to be," cornerback Morris Claiborne, who had one of New York's two interceptions, said, according to Newsday's Calvin Watkins.

New York, which lost the first two games of the season by a combined score of 66-32, has won three games in a row for the first time since winning five in a row from Week 12 to Week 16 in 2015. 

Combined with the New England Patriots' win on Thursday and the Buffalo Bills' 20-16 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, the Jets are in a three-way tie for the division lead heading into their Week 6 matchup against the defending Super Bowl champions.

Former Jets and current Patriots linebacker David Harris said he felt "blindsided" after New York released him in early June when the two sides failed to agree to a pay cut.

"They kind of blindsided me with the whole thing, being so late in the offseason, a week before minicamp," Harris said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss. "It came out of left field. It was more about the disrespect of the whole situation than anything else."

Harris had been a Jet for 10 years ever since they drafted him in the second round in 2007. He played 154 games and recorded 1,088 combined tackles, 35.5 sacks, 11 forced fumbles and six interceptions, helping lead the team to two AFC Championship games in his tenure.

But the Jets "abruptly" released the 33-year-old Harris in June when there was a "breakdown" in talks about reducing his $6.5 million salary that was due this season.

THE GAME: The New York Jets (4-10) at the New England Patriots (12-2) at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts, on Saturday, Dec. 24, at 1 p.m.

THE WEATHER: Rain and apparently lots of it, plus temperatures in the mid-40s. It could be worse -- a little colder and it would be a blizzard.

WHAT IT MEANS: Well, it's a big one for Bryce Petty, I guess. And for any Jets fans not interested in draft position, it would probably be a nice almost-ending to a miserable season to beat the Patriots. Other than that, I've got nothing.

The New York Jets showed flashes of what they had hoped to be a fluent offense and strong defense in a 22-17 loss to the New England Patriots. But at the end of the day, following another loss, they are still in the midst of a lost season.

Last year, the Patriots lost in overtime at MetLife Stadium, but the chances of a repeat performance tomorrow are slim. With the Jets falling to 3-7 before the bye, a chance to play spoiler is about all they have to play for over the final six games of the year. While many fans are already looking ahead to next year, the Jets' coaching staff will still be going all out to give a competitive effort. However, it might be hard to motivate their players following a frustrating first half of the season.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - Tom Brady missed practice for the Patriots with a knee injury on Wednesday, and all of New England is now waiting to exhale. But there's no reason for Jets fans to bother holding their breath. The Jets, as you all know, just aren't lucky enough for Brady to miss this game.

As far as the Jets are concerned, though, that's just fine. At this point, they'd rather see Brady in the lineup. Because if they're going to pull off this meaningless upset just so they can feel a little better about themselves in their lost season, they may as well do it with the Patriots at full strength.

Despite Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis having an up-and-down season, Patriots head coach Bill Belichick said he and his team will not take the corner lightly this Sunday. 

Belichick, who coached Revis in the 2014 season, said the 31-year-old still has the ability to make plays to beat teams.

The outrage was bound to happen anyway, but it really got loud Tuesday afternoon when word leaked out of the trade between the New England Patriots and the Cleveland Browns. After all, if the Browns can land an emerging young linebacker like Jamie Collins for the low, low price of a third- or fourth-round pick, why can't the Giants do something like that? Or even better: Why can't the Giants do anything at all? The answer is that of course they could have made a trade of some sort before the deadline on Tuesday, and there were very likely a few opportunities they could have pursued. But they were absolutely right to pass them all up and stick with the roster they have.

This has always been the fear about Ryan Fitzpatrick: As good as he has often looked as the Jets quarterback, the bad is just around the corner. He's a 33-year-old journeyman who is on his sixth team in 12 seasons, and has never once been considered anywhere near an elite quarterback.

On Sunday, the Jets were reminded why.
