Week 18 of the 2023 NFL season has the New York Jets on the road in snowy Foxborough, Massachusetts to take on the New England Patriots.

The Jets are locked into third place in the AFC East at this point. They have been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. The Patriots are locked into last place in the AFC East at this point. They have been mathematically eliminated from playoff contention. That makes this a completely meaningless game for both teams.

Bill Belichick despises the Jets and, in a season which may mark the end of his tenure with the Patriots, he’d probably love nothing better than to humiliate the Jets one last time. The Jets have the opportunity to snap a 15 game losing streak against Belichick and the Patriots and close out the season with three victories in their last five games. For fans, many are rooting for their team to lose today and secure a better draft pick.

We’ll see soon enough which team prevails in this ugly NFL matchup to close out the season.
