New England Patriots at New York Jets
Patriots -9.5 at Jets: The Jets were a different team with QB Sam Darnold back in their upset of Dallas. His performance gives us reasons to excuse the opening week 17-16 loss to Buffalo in which Darnold may have possibly already been suffering from the early stages of mononucleosis which was diagnosed a few days later.
The 6-0 Pats defeated the Jets in Week 3, limiting the Darnold-less Jets to 105 net yards. Jets coach Adam Gase led Miami to home upsets over New England the past two seasons. Against their lone common opponent, Buffalo, the key stats for each game were nearly identical with the Bills winning 17-16 at the Jets and losing 16-10 at home to the Pats. JETS
