Jets right tackle Damien Woody, who once played for Bill Belichick in New England, offered some words of advice for his teammates today as they prepare for next Monday night's showdown in New England. 

"Sometimes people get caught up in the mystique of New England, and we can't do that," Woody said. "Just be confident in who you are."

And exactly what is the mystique?

"People get caught up in Bill [Belichick] and [Tom] Brady and the Super Bowls," Woody said. "And the 25-game streak," he added, referring to Tom Brady's regular season winning streak in home games. "As players, you can’t get into all that stuff. We beat ‘em aleady once this year, and we’ve beaten them at their place before. Those two factors, we know we can do it. We're always going to stay true to who we are."
