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.

How ’bout them Cowboys?

That will be the question of the day on PFT Live on Wednesday. Charean Williams of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram will join Mike Florio to discuss the 5-1 Cowboys as they move past last week’s win in Seattle and start heading toward this Sunday’s matchup with the Giants. They’ll talk about the main reasons for Dallas’s strong start, whether running back DeMarco Murray needs to be taking on a lighter workload and the prospects of an extension for head coach Jason Garrett during Williams’s visit to the program.

Extension or not, the season is going to have to take a pretty drastic turn in order for Garrett to land back on the hot seat. Thankfully, there’s still plenty of coaches on their way to possible pink slips for Florio to discuss during our weekly look at the coaching hot seat.
