NEW YORK (AP) Jets coach Todd Bowles says he will not make a decision until next Monday on New York's starting quarterback for its game against New England on Nov. 27.

With a bye-week break ahead, Bowles will consider whether Ryan Fitzpatrick or Bryce Petty will give the struggling Jets (3-7) the best chance at beating the Patriots.

Bowles said Monday the players will practice Tuesday and then have the rest of the week off. The coaching staff will have meetings Wednesday and then take off until next Monday.

Petty made his first NFL start on Sunday in place of Fitzpatrick, who is recovering from a sprained knee. The second-year quarterback was 19 of 32 for 163 yards with a touchdown, but he also tossed a loss-sealing interception with under two minutes left as the Jets fell to the Los Angeles Rams 9-6.
