The New York Jets and Washington Redskins meet Sunday in NFL action at FedEx Field.
The New York Jets look to win back-to-back games for the first time this season. The New York Jets have lost all four road games this season. Sam Darnold is completing 63.2 percent of his passes for 1,307 yards, seven touchdowns and nine interceptions. Darnold has nine touchdown passes in his last eight games. Jamison Crowder and Robby Anderson have combined for 839 receiving yards and three touchdowns while Demaryius Thomas has 25 receptions. The New York Jets ground game is averaging 67.3 yards per contest, and Le’Veon Bell leads the way with 449 yards and two touchdowns. Defensively, New York is allowing 26.4 points and 344.3 yards per game. Jamal Adams leads the New York Jets with 52 tackles, Jordan Jenkins has five sacks and Jamal Adams has one interception.
The Washington Redskins also could use a win after a rough 1-8 season. The Washington Redskins have lost all four home games this season. Dwayne Haskins is completing 61.4 percent of his passes for 284 yards, zero touchdowns and four interceptions. Case Keenum and Haskins have combined for nine touchdowns and eight interceptions. Terry McLaurin and Chris Thompson have combined for 773 receiving yards and five touchdowns while Paul Richardson has 27 receptions. The Washington Redskins ground game is averaging 89.4 yards per contest, and Adrian Peterson leads the way with 491 yards and one touchdown. Defensively, Washington is allowing 24.3 points and 366.1 yards per game. Landon Collins leads the Washington Redskins with 78 tackles, Matt Ioannidis has 4.5 sacks and Quinton Dunbar has three interceptions.
The Jets are 7-21 ATS in their last 28 games in November, 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Redskins are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 home games, 1-4 ATS vs. a team with a losing record and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Jets are 3-0-1 ATS in their last 4 meetings and the favorite is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 meetings. The under is 6-0 in Redskins last 6 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Jets last 5 games overall.
The New York Jets are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games as a road underdog. The Washington Redskins are 3-5 ATS in their last eight games as a home favorite. The Jets are coming off one of their most complete performances with a win over the Giants and now can win back-to-back games for the first time since October of last year. The Redskins have had an extra week to prepare and have committed the rest of the season to Haskins, but this is an offense that's produced a combined 18 points in their last three games. Nobody should bet this game, but if forced to pick, I'd side with the Jets and the free point. The Washington Redskins shouldn't be favored against anybody.
