Welcome to Week Three! The Antonio Brown-era is officially over, so now we can focus strictly on football. The Patriots welcome the hated-rival New York Jets to Foxborough for a 1 PM Sunday showdown. Our Week Three Live Blog will provide updates and opinions from the game, so be sure to follow us while you enjoy the game.

The Patriots are heavy favorites, but division games can be tough to predict, so nobody can truly predict what is going to happen. OK, we are 11 minutes from kickoff. Here are the inactive players for today:

Patriots- TE Matt Lacosse, FB James Develin, OL Caleb Benenoch, LB Shaq Calhoun, RB James White, S Nate Ebner, OL Korey Cunningham

Jets- QB Sam Darnold, WR Demaryius Thomas, OLB Jordan Jenkins, DL John Franklin-Myers, LB CJ Mosley, OLB Jordan Willis, DL Quinnen Williams

New England is a little banged up, with both of their starting tackles dealing with real injuries. Isaiah Wynn is on IR, and should return later with a broken foot, but the Marcus Cannon situation is more week-to-week, but he is active this week, a good sign for a team that wants to run the ball and set the tone. Without James White, the Patriots running game is going to be leaned upon to pick up the slack, and that will be much easier with Cannon in the lineup. OK, we are one minute from kickoff. Enjoy!

7:55- TOUCHDOWN, PATRIOTS!! The Patriots cap the 90-yard drive with a sweep right out of shotgun, and Michel takes it in for the score. Gostkowski missed another extra point (Anybody else want to question me on whether he is struggling? It MAY be the holder). Patriots 6, Jets 0

4:14- Berrios with the catch and gain of six; 3rd & 9…

11:32- Punt returned to the 32, and Brady takes the ball looking to put another touchdown on the board. 1st & 10, Patriots…

11:31- Badly run screen-play goes for a loss of four; 2nd & 14…

10:51- Incomplete pass that was almost picked. It is actually 3rd & 16, I was off by two yards on the last play…

13:20- Incomplete pass to Gordon; 3rd & 8…

12:29- Gain of five on the run by Bell; 3rd & 2…

11:22- Gain of seven on the run; 2nd & 3…

9:26- Run of five for Burkhead, and Gostkowski will come on to attempt the field goal; 4th & 15…

8:06- Holding made it 2nd & 19, and extreme pressure forced an overthrow to make it 3rd & 19…

4:50- Gain of three on the catch; 2nd & 12…

4:12- Gordon with an AMAZING catch of 28 yards, and the Patriots have 1st & Goal from the two…

3:47- Michel for two; 2nd & Goal…

1:02- SACK! The Patriots defense continues its onslaught of the NFL and the Jets are forced to punt yet again. Butler is down on the field, but it appears to be a cramp. 4th & 25…

:21- Touchdown, Jets. Olszewski muffed the punt, and the Jets capitalize with the fumble recovery in the end zone. Tough to see the shutout streak end with a mistake like that. Patriots 30, Jets 7

:12- Burkhead runs for eight, and that will be the end of the third quarter. Patriots 30, Jets 7
