Tom Brady, Patriots in traditionally tough spot against Jets

At the tail end of a lost season, the New York Jets are going back to quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick on Sunday. Expect a last-gasp effort from the Jets in their most meaningful remaining game.

Somehow, the Jets are 5-0-1 against the spread versus New England in the teams’ past six meetings, including a damaging loss for the Patriots late last season.

Tom Brady has 16 touchdown passes and one interception in his six games this season, but Brady missed Wednesday’s practice with a knee injury. He might be without tight end Rob Gronkowski again this week.

The Patriots had it easy last week against the fading San Francisco 49ers, but New York is one of the traditionally toughest stops on their schedule. The Jets (3-7) are worth a shot as 7½- to 8-point underdogs.
