NFL | Carolina Panthers (7-3) at New York Jets (4-6)
USA TODAY Sports

This Sunday from MetLife Stadium, we’ve got NFL action coming between the Carolina Panthers and the New York Jets. 

Carolina is sitting at 7-3 so far this year. The Panthers have won their last three games, beating the Buccaneers, Falcons and Dolphins in that time. During that Miami game, Panthers QB Cam Newton put up 254 yards with four touchdowns. 

So far this year, Newton has 2232 yards with 14 TDs and 11 INTs, while Jonathan Stewart leads the Carolina rush on 460 yards and a TD. Heading up the Panthers receivers is Devin Funchess, with 535 yards and five touchdowns. 

Over on the Jets’ side, they’re currently 4-6 on the season. New York has lost four of their last five versus the Patriots, Dolphins, Falcons and Buccaneers. In that Tampa game, New York QB Josh McCown put up 262 yards with a TD and a pick. 

On the season, McCown has 2242 yards with 14 TDs and eight picks, and Bilal Powell is the top Jets rusher on 420 yards and two scores. Robby Anderson is the Jets’ top receiver with 568 yards and five touchdowns so far. 

The Panthers are 6-1 ATS in their last seven road games and 5-1 ATS in their last six Week 12 games. Carolina is also 7-2-1 ATS in their last 10 games in November and 5-2 ATS in their last seven games overall. 

Meanwhile, the Jets are 6-0 ATS in their last six home games and 4-0-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record. New York is also 6-1-1 ATS in their last eight overall and 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games in November. 

After a shocking loss to the Bears, the Panthers seem to have righted the ship and are playing pretty well. The Carolina defense has stepped up, allowing 21 points or fewer in the last four straight. As for the Jets, they’ve hit the skids after some early promise, but to their credit they’ve been hanging around in games and haven’t been blown out. I like New York to stumble into a cover here, but still lose.

Pick:
New York Jets +4.5
