NEW YORK (AP) Surprise, surprise. The New York Jets are playing for first.

No, not the No. 1 draft pick – as so many predicted. But for the top spot in the AFC East, with a matchup against the rival New England Patriots on tap for Sunday at MetLife Stadium.

Both teams are 3-2, with the Patriots’ struggles nearly as stunning as the Jets’ early-season success. But Todd Bowles knows better than to take Bill Belichick’s bunch lightly.
