Wind will be a big factor on Monday night

Mark Sanchez

Oh, by the way: There’s a football game tonight.

The terrific Jets-Patriots matchup is a fitting capper to the first week of games in December.  Windy conditions will be a big factor tonight with the wind chill in the mid-teens.  Winds will be gusting 16-24 miles per hour.

Greg A. Bedard of the Boston Globe reports Patriots kicker Shayne Graham struggled to make 30-40 yard-field goals when he was kicking into the wind.  He made a 49-yard boot with room to spare with the wind at his back.  Kickoffs should also be a problem.

For the Jets, right tackle Damien Woody is starting, as expected.  The Patriots will be without interior rushers Mike Wright and Myron Pryor, who were listed as questionable.

    Then there’s that foul crosswind which will BLOW HARD from the Jet’s sideline all game long.
