The New England Patriots look to remain unbeaten and build on their AFC East lead. Tom Brady is completing 70.6 percent of his passes for 1,699 yards, 14 touchdowns and one interception. Brady has two or less touchdown passes in seven of his last 10 games. Julian Edelman and Rob Gronkowski have combined for 874 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Dion Lewis has 26 receptions.

The Jets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games overall. The Patriots are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall. The Jets are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in New England and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings overall.
While the Patriots do look like the best team in the AFC, the Jets aren't shabby and have one of the best defenses in the league, which includes a great secondary. The Jets have also had an extra week to prepare while the Pats played Sunday night. Not sure why this number is so large, but I'll take a stab at the points.
