New York is trying to overcome from last week’s 34-13 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The Jets trailed the Dolphins by only a field goal into the third quarter, however, had a blocked punt returned for a touchdown and then permitted two more scores in the next four minutes and never recovered.
New York has outscored four of its last six opponents and has surpassed five of its last eight opponents. But the worst turnover ratio in the league, minus-19, has taken a devastating toll.
New England has a five-game winning streak record, going 4-1 ATS in the process, after beating the Denver Broncos last week 16-3. This victory gave New England an eighth straight AFC East title and the cover as a three-point road favorite.
At 12-2, the Patriots lead Oakland by one game in the fight for the top seed in the upcoming AFC playoffs and sit as the unmistakable top choices on the chances to win the AFC title.
