The New England Patriots and the New York Jets meet in week 12 NFL action from MetLife Stadium on Sunday afternoon.
The New England Patriots come into this one rested following their bye week, giving the Pats time to stew on a 34-10 loss to Tennessee in their last outing. Tom Brady has thrown for 2,748 yards, 55 touchdowns and 7 interceptions on 65.2% passing while Sony Michel leads New England in rushing with 453 yards and 4 touchdowns this season. James White leads the Pats in receiving with 66 grabs for 562 yards and 6 touchdowns while Josh Gordon, Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman each have 400+ receiving yards this season. Defensively, Deatrich Wise Jr. leads the Pats with 3.5 sacks while Devin McCourty leads New England with 39 tackles this season. As a team, New England is averaging 377.2 yards of total offense and 28 points per game this season.
The New York Jets are in dire need of a win to snap a 4 game losing skid following a 41-10 loss to Buffalo in their last outing. Sam Darnold has thrown for 1,934 yards, 11 touchdowns and 14 picks on 55% passing while Isaiah Crowell leads the Jets on the ground with 552 rushing yards and 6 touchdowns this season. Robby Anderson leads the Jets with 346 receiving yards and 3 touchdowns while Quincy Enunwa comes right behind with 345 receiving yards with a team-high 29 catches this season. Defensively, Jordan Jenkins leads the Jets with 5 sacks while Avery Williamson has 3 sacks and 56 tackles this season. As a team, New York is averaging 298.7 yards of total offense and 20.8 points per game this season.
New England is 16-6 ATS in their last 22 road games and 16-5 ATS in their last 21 games against a team with a losing record while the under is 4-0 in their alst 4 games following a loss. New York is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games overall and 0-4 ATS in their last 4 division games while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 home games. New England is 2-7-1 ATS in the last 10 meetings between these two teams and 0-5 ATS in the last 5 meetings between these two teams in New York.
Both of these teams have had their bye week to stew on an embarrassing defeat last time out, but if we are being realistic, the team that’s probably going to bounce back faster from that is New England. The Jets have issues with a banged up quarterback in Darnold and haven’t looked good during this losing streak, and a ticked-off Patriots team that’s had a week to think about their loss isn’t the team you want to face coming out of the bye week. New England have had their struggles ATS in New York, but I like the Pats to exorcise some demons and come out on top with a double-digit win here, covering in the process.
