While we are still in the middle of March and have not thrown the NFL Draft into the equation yet, the difference between the Patriots and their division rivals is quite a bit less than it was at the end of last season.
This is where “Magic Mike” can earn his way into Jets lore. If he succeeds, and in a few years the Jets take off for lands not seen in many decades, then I’ll believe anything is possible.
Brandon Marshall knew he was on his way out of Chicago. He heard all the rumors. Things got rocky with the Bears last season, so a change appeared inevitable.
Jets general manager Mike Maccagnan kicked off free agency with a flurry of moves — including bringing back one of the best players in franchise history.
But essentials like karma and character are incidental to the Jets. Which is why they are, well, the Jets — perennial punch lines in the throes of a 46-year title drought.
Nobody can say the Jets are lacking playmakers anymore. The team has reportedly reached an agreement with the Bears for All-Pro wide receiver Brandon Marshall.
In the playoffs, it’s important for a team to have all their playmakers. That’s why earning a first-round bye, like the Denver Broncos did, can set a squad up for success.
And this conflict could conclude in the boxing ring and wind up being pretty beneficial to a worthy charity.
Press-man coverage, zone coverage, whatever. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery cause opponents fits, and they’ll be looking to do more of the same against the Jets.

It’s a recurring theme for the Giants, as a crucial turnover in the fourth quarter doomed New York. Eli Manning overthrew Brandon Myers, and Tim Jennings intercepted the errant pass to preserve the Bears 27-21 victory over New York. The Giants are 0-6 for only the second time in team history.
No team that started 0-5 team has ever made the NFL playoffs, which means the Giants can cling to the long-shot belief that they could become the first. But it has to start with a win Thursday night over the Chicago Bears
On the surface, this would seem like an easy one for the Chicago Bears. They’re trying to get back to winning against a team that hasn’t won a game all season.
The Chicago Bears have lost back-to-back games to the Detroit Lions and the New Orleans Saints, and if they lose Thursday night to the winless Giants, a full-fledged panic will envelop the City of Broad Shoulders.
The executives at NFL Network probably had this game circled during the summer. Two longtime NFL franchises, each with a storied past; fighting for position in the NFC playoff picture. Instead Thursday Night’s contest pits a winless New York Giants squad (0-5) against a reeling Chicago Bears team coming off two consecutive losses after starting the season 3-0.
