The New York Jets dropped to 1-4 on the season after being defeated by the Atlanta Falcons, 27-20, this past Sunday. New York found back from a 20-3 halftime deficit to make it 20-17 game midway through the 4th quarter, however, the Jets could not fight back after Atlanta made it a double-digit led with 2:19 left in the 4th quarter on a 3-yard Mike Davis TD run. New York won the turnover battle by a 2-1 margin, however, was outgained by Atlanta by a 450-230 margin in the loss.

The New England Patriots dropped to 2-4 on the season after being defeated by the Dallas Cowboys by a 35-29 margin in OT this past Sunday. New England gave the Cowboys all they could handle, however, Dallas was able to force OT on a 49-yard FG by Greg Zuerlein late in the 4th quarter and won the game on a 35-yard TD reception by CeeDee Lamb with 3:52 left in OT. New England was outgained by Dallas by a 567-335 margin and committed 2 turnovers in the loss. Leading the way for the Patriots was RB Damien Harris who had 101 rushing yards & 1 TD on 18 carries.

Defensively, New England is holding their opponents to an average of 21.2 ppg on 373.8 total yards per game (261.0 passing yds/g; 112.8 rushing yds/g).

The Jets are 7-2-2 ATS in their last 11 games in Week 7, however, are just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The Patriots are 25-10 ATS vs. a team with a losing record, however, are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games overall.

New England is the better team here and already defeated New York by a 25-6 margin, however, this is a lot of points to cover for a team that has generally played to the level of it’s competition and recently barley beat Houston. New York’s offense has a lot of question marks, however, the Pats have looked vulnerable as of late in their passing defense and as I just don’t see this Patriots offense piling on the points against a decent New York defense, I’m taking the Jets and the points in this one.
