The New York Jets are bringing their real crew to their next head-to-head with the New England Patriots, as linebacker C.J. Mosley said on Thursday that he plans to suit up and play in Gang Green's Monday Night Football meeting against the Pats.

As noted by Schefter, Mosley, who was signed by the Jets to a five-year deal worth $85 million this past offseason, has not appeared in a game for the Jets since the team's Week 1 meeting with the Buffalo Bills.

Mosley was a beast out of the gate for the Jets, too, with six total tackles and an interception returned for a touchdown. But the Jets absolutely crumbled upon his departure, as they allowed the Bills' Josh Allen to score 14 unanswered points to steal the win at MetLife Stadium.

The 27-year-old Mosley's expected return continues a trend of sorts for the Jets' rematch with the Patriots, as they will also have quarterback Sam Darnold back in action after having to start Luke Falk in their Week 3 meeting.

The Patriots have won seven straight head-to-heads with the Jets dating back to 2016.
