The NFL's AFC Divisional playoffs are here, and with that is Sunday's much-anticipated match up between the New York Jets and the New England Patriots.

"It's gonna be a good game, but I just see the Patriots pulling it out," Justin Tuck, New York Giants all-pro defensive end, told CNBC's "The Strategy Session" on Friday.

"It hurts my heart because I really want to see the Jets do well," Tuck said.

"I really want to see [Mark] Sanchez become that star quarterback and winning a game like that. But I don't really see them beating the Patriots with how they've played, and all the weapons that Brady has," he said.

"The only reason we [Giants] had as much success as we did against the [New England] Patriots, cause we got after Tom Brady," Tuck said. (Watch the video of Tuck's interview here.)

"If they're [Jets] able to get to him and disrupt his rhythm, it'll be a different ball game," he said.

"When he [Brady] can sit in the pocket and he can pick out which receiver he wants to throw it to, this guy is unstoppable, that's the reason why he's Tom Brady—he's won a lot of games like that," Tuck said.
