After being defeated at home by the Bears, the unrecognizable Patriots wasn’t able to climb out of the bottom place of their division.
After blanking the Lions and holding the Browns to 15 points, New England’s defense got overwhelmed by the Chicago offense that totaled 390 total yards, 243 of them on the ground. This was the second time this season that they have conceded more than 30 points to an opponent, and the first time they have allowed more than 200 yards on the ground in a game.
On offense, Bill Belichick has a serious problem to solve with Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe. Jones was used for the game against Chicago, but after throwing an interception, he was removed by the rookie Zappe, who got a TD and was then intercepted a couple of times, he gave up another ball via fumble. A mess they need to fix as soon as possible at the Patriots.
Betting on the New York Jets
- Season record: 5-2.
- BetMGM Spread: +1.5.
- Moneyline: (+100)
- Over/Under: 40.5
One of the pleasant surprises of this season is the Jets, who currently occupy one of the strategic spots in the AFC by finishing second in the East Division.
In the four-game winning streak, the key has been their defense, which is among the most reliable of the campaign, not allowing more than 20 points to any of their last four opponents and conceding less than 280 total yards to two of them.
The return of Zach Wilson represented an important addition to the offense, of course, but the Jets will have to find a way to overcome the unfortunate injury of rookie running back, Breece Hall, who was having a spectacular season and will have to miss the rest of the year. In three of their last four games, they have scored 24 points or more, and in the last three games they have not lost the ball to their opponents.
New England displayed a very poor offense against the Bears, and the attack Belichick will have to resolve for the starting QB spot could pose trouble for him when going against a Jets defense that is among the best in interceptions, with a total of eight on the campaign.
We’ll see how New York’s offense adapts to playing without Hall, and if Wilson can adjust to his new running backs, especially James Robinson, who has just arrived after being traded from the Jaguars to add depth to the unit.
Prediction: Jets Spread (NE 17 – NY 23).
