At the onset of this season, New England was showered with praise and respect as a franchise that has done the impossible. In an era in which the rules are rigged to prevent dynasties, the Patriots have cracked the code to emerge as the greatest of all time. By contrast, the Jets could not be more opposite of a franchise. New York is one of the least appealing teams on the Pro Football betting board. Monday night this pair will renew their ancient rivalry that dates back to the founding of the American Football League in 1960.
