The New England Patriots square off with the hated New York Jets tomorrow night, as the two squads meet for the first time in this young 2014 season.

It seems like every year they meet at a time where one team is on the rise, and one is declining. And more often that not, the Jets are the team that is struggling, and that is the case here in 2014. New York won their opening game at home versus the Raiders, but they have proceeded to lose their next five games by an average of just over 13 points. I am being nice when I say they have struggled to this point.

However with that said, Rex Ryan’s team is not an entirely horrible bunch. They have a good amount of talent, and with this being a division rivalry, and the Patriots reeling from a recent rash of injuries, tomorrow’s game will be very competitive.

There will be a ton of talent out there on the field, so here are the four biggest players to watch, in my mind.
