The New York Jets need a nice win after splitting their last six games. Ryan Fitzpatrick is completing 61.9 percent of his passes for 1,518 yards, 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Fitzpatrick is questionable with a thumb injury. Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker have combined for 1,079 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Jeremy Kerley has 13 receptions. The New York Jets ground game is averaging 127.6 yards per contest, and Chris Ivory leads the way with 518 yards and four touchdowns. Defensively, New York is allowing 19.9 points and 307.1 yards per game. David Harris leads the Jets with 51 tackles, Muhammad Wilkerson has five sacks and Darrelle Revis has three interceptions. Bilal Powell, Brandon Marshall and Geno Smith are questionable.
The Jaguars are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games following a S.U. win and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 vs. AFC. The Jets are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games following a ATS loss and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in November. The Jaguars are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings in New York and 6-2 ATS in their last 8 meetings overall.
I'm not sure the Jags are going to be able to move the ball much against this Jets defense. This game could get ugly simply because of that matchup. While the Jets haven't shown the ability to blow teams out consistently, I think this is a game New York can win by double digits.
