Patriots-Jets preview

.Tonight

Jets (1-0) at Patriots (1-0)

When/where: 8:25; Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass.

TV: NFL Network

Line/OU: Patriots by 12; 43½

Jets rookie QB Geno Smith likely garnered confidence in beating the Bucs 18-17 on Sunday. Now New York catches a break with New England losing top rusher Shane Vereen to wrist surgery while top receiver Danny Amendola (groin) is questionable. But the Jets will be without WR/PR Jeremy Kerley. He sustained a concussion on Sunday's helmet-to-helmet hit by Bucs S Mark Barron. The Patriots needed a last-minute field goal to beat the Bills in Week 1, so this one might be tighter than expected as well.

Joe Smith's pick: Patriots 24, Jets 13

Jets Out: LB Quinton Coples (ankle), WR Jeremy Kerley (concussion), QB Mark Sanchez (shoulder). Probable: LB Nick Bellore (oblique), G Willie Colon (knee), CB Antonio Cromartie (hip), TE Jeff Cumberland (chin), DT Kenrick Ellis (back), WR Clyde Gates (knee), DT Damon Harrison (knee), WR Stephen Hill (knee), WR Santonio Holmes (foot), T Ben Ijalana (knee), RB Chris Ivory (thumb), C Nick Mangold (elbow), LB Garrett McIntyre (ribs), CB Dee Milliner (hip), RB Bilal Powell (shoulder), DT Sheldon Richardson (shoulder), QB Geno Smith (ankle), TE Kellen Winslow (knee).
