The Patriots host the Jets on Thursday night to kick off Week Seven and we’ll be previewing the game on Thursday’s edition of PFT Live.

Tom Curran of CSN New England will join Mike Florio for a look ahead to Thursday night’s action. They’ll discuss Patriots quarterback Tom Brady’s ankle injury, how the Pats will replace running back Stevan Ridley and linebacker Jerod Mayo after both players suffered season-ending injuries and whether the strength of the Jets’ defensive line will be an issue against a sometimes shaky Patriots offensive line.

Florio and MDS will then let us know who they think will win that game along with all of the others being contested around the league between now and Monday night. They only disagree on one game this week, which means MDS’s lead in the season series is safe for one more week at least.
