Tonight the Jets and Patriots are playing a rather large football game in what is a wide-open, and, completely up-for-grabs AFC East division. The Patriots took the first game, as they always do, and the Jets players were "sick to their stomachs" about it. Probably because they lost to Matt Cassel making his first NFL start on the road.

From Mark Cannizzaro of the New York Post:
One Jets offensive player, who spoke under the condition of anonymity because he didn't want to provide bulletin board fodder for the Patriots, talked about being "sick to our stomachs" about the Jets' 19-10 loss in Week 2 at the Meadowlands. He felt the Patriots were vulnerable - particularly on defense. Not to mention it was the first game with Matt Cassel at quarterback, after Tom Brady was injured in Week 1 vs. the Chiefs. The player spoke matter-of-factly about how "slow" and "old" a number of the New England defenders are and how he believes the Jets should be able to put up "a lot of points" on them tonight.
