Pats Spoil Favre's NY Debut

With the season ending injury to Tom Brady in Week One many wondered how Matt Cassel would acquit himself this week against the Jets during Brett Favre's New York debut (OK, the Meadowlands is in New Jersey but you get my point).

Cassel didn't throw any TD passes but neither did he throw any interceptions. He went 16 for 23 with 165 yards. Stephen Gostkowski kicked four field goals, Wes Welker caught seven passes and the Pats defense was sterling.

Favre had a respectable day going 18 for 26 passing for 181 yards with a TD pass and an interception. But even with Favre the Jets don't have the Pats depth.

I know its only Week Two but the Pats will do just fine with Matt Cassel at the helm.
