The Jets (3-3) took advantage of a weak Colts rushing defense to get a win last weekend. Despite that success, New York still ranks 30th in the league in total offense with an average of 295.5 yards per game. With a couple of injured running backs will the Patriots see Tim Tebow in the backfield? The Patriots are tough against the run, giving up just 82.7 yards per game. However, quarterbacks like Kevin Kolb and Russell Wilson have been able to beat the New England defensive scheme for big plays late in games. New England (3-3) has the league’s most productive offense, averaging 445.3 yards per game. With the Jets’ defense allowing just 209.3 yards per game through the air, fifth-best in the NFL, the Patriots’ game plan could feature running back Stevan Ridley, whose 524 rushing yards rank fifth in the league.

Tight end Aaron Hernandez and guard Logan Mankins returned to practice on Friday. They were among 11 players the Patriots listed as questionable or out for Sunday’s game against the Jets.
S Patrick Chung (shoulder)
WR Julian Edelman (hand)
TE Rob Gronkowski (hip)
LB Dont’a Hightower (hamstring)
OT Sebastian Vollmer (back/knee)
WR Wes Welker (ankle)

S Steve Gregory (hip)
RB Brandon Bolden (knee)
LB Tracy White (foot)
