Your Jet-free Sunday late games discussion thread

Here's another discussion thread for you to discuss the late games with your fellow JetsFixers. Here's what's on the schedule:

Pats in Mexico

The Patriots look to keep their push for home-field advantage alive against an Oakland team who will be desperate not to fall to 4-6 in Mexico City.

New England actually benefits from this scheduling in two ways. One is that it's a road game on a neutral site so the Raiders won't have a proper home-field advantage. The other is that it's actually a shorter trip to Mexico City than it is to Oakland.

Four more disappointing AFC teams in action

The Bengals and Broncos are both just 3-6 so their game is pretty meaningless. However, Buffalo's trip out west to face the Chargers has a couple of interesting elements.

One was that it was looking like ex-Jet Kellen Clemens was going to start for the Chargers. However, it looks like Philip Rivers will be able to go for Los Angeles. The other was rookie Nathan Peterman's first career start for the Bills, who controversially benched Tyrod Taylor in a clear case of misplaced scapegoating.

An interesting game under the lights

The late game sees 8-1 Philadelphia looking to take complete control of the NFC East by winning a tough game in Dallas. That's a task that got a little easier when Ezekiel Elliott's suspension was upheld this week.

Dallas will also be without linebacker Sean Lee and left tackle Tyron Smith. Last week, Chaz Green gave up four sacks in Smith's place and then was benched for Byron Bell, who gave up another two. Bell will get the start tonight.
