Davis ready to face Pats

Wide receiver Corey Davis says the New York Jets are ready to put things right against the New England Patriots on Sunday, describing the vibe around practice after their bye week as "way different".

The Jets, 53/20 on the Money Line, haven't beaten their AFC East rivals since 2015 with the Patriots looking to extend an 11-match streak of victories against their opponents from the Big Apple.

Jets looking to end win wait

Davis was still in college the last time Gang Green tasted victory over Bill Belichick's men and still in high school the last time they did it in New England, which was in a playoff game back in 2011.

It felt as though the Jets were as far away from ending that sequence as ever following their 27-20 loss to the Atlanta Falcons in London, which dropped New York to 1-5 on the season.

But the Jets' primary receiver says the players have come back refreshed from their break and ready to take on their arch-rivals at Gillette Stadium.

"We're ready. We're ready," Davis said after Wednesday's practice, via the New York Post. "I don't want to say too much ... but we're ready."

The Patriots defence shut Davis down when they posted a 25-6 win at Metlife Stadium last month, holding him to just two catches (on five targets) for eight yards as rookie quarterback Zach Wilson struggled - throwing four interceptions.

"It's definitely another opportunity to show what we've been doing and how far we've come since the last time we played them," added Davis.

"I think we're a lot better than what we displayed last time we played these guys."
