A must-win game calls for some machismo

Will Parks is ready for today’s game between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots. One of the Jets’ feistiest players is making a statement in 38-degree weather with 20 mph winds.

So is Robert Saleh, continuing his pregame tradition in the cold. Saleh has been running the steps on the lower level of all his games for the last 20 years.

Meanwhile, Sauce Gardner comes in with the swagger, as usual.

Tyler Conklin’s attire is unaffected by the temperatures.

Today’s game may not be a must-win in the standings (although it is fairly close, considering the competition in the AFC), but the Jets know the stakes. They cannot be swept by New England.

Here is the list of the Jets’ inactives for today:

That means that guard Nate Herbig is ready to go for this game, a critical point for a Jets’ run game that will be instrumental for the Jets’ chances of victory.

Hang onto your hats, folks (literally, if you’re in Foxborough). This should be a good one.
