The last time the New York Jets faced the New England Patriots, back in Week 7, the Jets made a game of it by relentlessly leaning on their rushing attack. They came up short, losing 27-25 in New England, but Chris Ivory racked up 107 rushing yards and a score, while Chris Johnson chipped in another 61 yards.

Not surprisingly, we should expect to see them focus on rushing once again this weekend, as these teams meet in New York for a rematch.

Will Marc Trestman, Phil Emery survive?

The Chicago Bears' Thursday press conference was great cinéma vérité, as coach Marc Trestman answered myriad questions about benching Jay Cutler, who followed up Trestman with his own session with reporters. It gave us a chance to read between the lines about the future of each of them with the Bears.

Trestman's seat seems to be as hot as any coach in the NFL -- not just with his front office but with his players, particularly following his handling of offensive coordinator Aaron Kromer's admission that he was the source of anti-Cutler comments made to a reporter.

We haven't seen Josh Freeman on a football field since October of 2013, during his lone appearance for the Minnesota Vikings, following his severance from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It was a disastrous performance, as he completed 23 of 50 passes for 190 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT, as the Vikes lost 23-7 to the New York Giants on Monday Night Football.

Despite his obvious struggles on the field and issues off of the field, Freeman is just 26 years old, so he should have more gas left in the tank. It sounds like he doesn't believe he is done in the NFL.
