These two teams only face one another once every four years, stomach so this should be an interesting game. Both squads have been rather disappointing this season thus far.

NBC owns the right to flex games into the Sunday Night window after week 5 of the regular season, in order to put superior product on the television in case the original scheduling turns out flat. CBS and FOX can protect games to prevent losing high quality games in order to save their own ratings. The week 14 games between the Patriots and the Texans was flexed to Sunday Night Football earlier this season, the Patriots sixth prime time game of the year.

New England had already played the Steelers (week 1), Colts (week 6), Dolphins (week 8), Bills (week 11), Broncos (week 12) in prime time.

The flex schedule only applies to games on Sunday, and week 16 offers a weak slate. The two best games of the wee (Eagles-Washington; Bengals-Broncos) are on Saturday and Monday, respectively, and couldn’t be flexed. Sunday offered just the Patriots-Jets (on CBS), the PanthersFalcons (on FOX), and PackersCardinals (on FOX).

On Christmas night, order one of the fifty greatest New York Jets of all time arrived at our house in Atlanta for dinner. We’d already begun eating, link unsure if he’d show up at all. But here Bill Mathis was, smiling as we helped him out of the car. He and his wife, Burnsie, are old friends of my stepmother, who invited them to join us for our holiday meal. I’d never met Bill before, but soon found myself—being the youngest and presumably strongest of the group—in an intimate embrace with him, lifting him out of the car. I put my hands under his huge arms and tried to pull his thick, two-hundred-and-seventy-pound trunk, clothed in an N.F.L.-labeled fleece jacket, from the passenger seat and into a wheelchair that Burnsie had removed from the back.

It took twenty minutes to maneuver Bill—through tight doorways, around heavy furniture and sniffing dogs—to the head of our dinner table, some sixty feet away. The whole journey there, he didn’t say a word. Though he just turned seventy-seven years old, Bill has the surprisingly smooth face and thick hair of a much younger man. He played for the New York Jets—and their predecessor, the Titans—back in the sixties, when they were part of the since discontinued American Football League. Hall of Famer Joe Namath roomed with him on the road: their coach instructed Bill to keep the charismatic young quarterback out of trouble. (“Tough,” Mathis told me.) In 1969 Mathis won a Super Bowl with Namath, and tonight, as usual, he had the massive ring on his finger, which he let me hold: it had the startling heft of a lead bullet. Namath had just called Bill a few hours earlier, to wish his old running back a merry Christmas and ask Burnsie how her husband of almost forty years was doing. The answer, Namath must have known: not so well.

Darrelle Revis is taking his public dispute with his former agents to the courtroom.

The Jets cornerback sued Neil Schwartz, remedy Jonathan Feinsod and their sports agency Schwartz & Feinsod, drugs LLC in Westchester Supreme Court last week, according to court documents provided by

The lawsuit pertains to an endorsement deal Revis signed with Healthy Beverages, LCC, which produces Steaz, a green-tea based energy drink and alleges Schwartz “secretly and unilaterally increased” his legal fee on the deal from 10% to 50% without informing Revis.




With the season running out, salve I wanted to take one last shot that this ends up on the desk of a running back-needy GM and urge someone to sign Ray Rice. He is keenly aware of the harm he has done and is doing the work, daily, to try to prevent others from doing the same and offering a lot more than just lip service about addressing domestic violence issues. He would be an asset to the locker room and the community and a true role model for other players. He is also in insane condition, as motivated as anyone you will find and he will literally donate his entire paycheck to domestic violence causes and organizations.




The NFL used its flex scheduling powers Monday to spare the nation a prime-time game involving the Jets to cap off Thanksgiving weekend.

On the surface, sales it was a no-brainer to move the Chiefs (currently 7-2) and Broncos (7-3) to “Sunday Night Football” and the Patriots (7-2) and Jets (3-7) to a late-afternoon slot. Still, store the league and NBC do not take the decision to move the Patriots out of prime time (regardless of the opponent) lightly.
