The Jets are visiting the New England Patriots in Week 3 and it's lining up to be a long Sunday for New York. According to Odds Shark, the Pats are favorites by three touchdowns, -21.5.
Being forced to play your third-string quarterback will do that to you, as Luke Falk starts against Tom Brady.
But Jets (0-2) defensive end Leonard Williams isn't worried about the spread or quarterbacks. He still wants to win because he hates not to, especially to these guys.
"It makes your hatred for them a little bit more because it's so one-sided, and you really want to beat them," Leonard Williams said to ESPN about losing to the Patriots in recent years.
"It's really annoying when I think about it," he added.
So far in 2019, Williams has seven tackles. If you couldn't tell, he's eager to add to that against Brady and the Pats (2-0).
In his career, Williams has played eight games against the Patriots, his numbers aren't stellar. He has 15 tackles, seven QB hits and one sack. However, that one sack came the last time the Jets faced the Patriots, in Week 16 last season. Perhaps he's on the right track.
For his career, Williams in 1-7 overall against the Pat and his team has been outscored by more than double in those eight, 228-108. The Jets as a team have lost 10-straight regular season contests on the road in New England against the Pats.
