The New York Jets have been offensively pathetic this season, but to be fair have only had starting quarterback Sam Darnold for one game. The former No. 3 overall pick will return to the lineup Sunday when Gang Green hosts the Dallas Cowboys, which are favored on the NFL odds.

Last Cowboys vs Jets Meeting
Late in the 2015 season, the Cowboys lost at home to the Jets 19-16. Randy Bullock kicked a 40-yard field goal with 36 seconds left. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for 299 yards. How long ago was this game? One of two Dallas QBs to play that day was Kellen Moore. He’s now the team’s offensive coordinator. Cowboys QBs had four interceptions overall. Dallas hadn’t drafted either Dak Prescott or Zeke Elliott yet.

Why Bet on Dallas?
The Cowboys were upset 34-24 at home to Green Bay last week. Prescott completed 27-of-44 passes for 463 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions while adding four carries for an additional 27 yards. He was brought down for three sacks, resulting in a loss of 22 yards. Dak’s huge counting stats were largely fueled by garbage time as 329 of his 463 yards occurred after the break.
Prescott played without both of his starting tackles as La’El Collins suffered an in-game injury while Tyron Smith was out with a high-ankle sprain. Coming off consecutive defeats to New Orleans and Green Bay, Prescott is not ready to alter what he believes the Cowboys are capable of doing the rest of the season: “We’re not backing down. We’ll take this one on the chin.
“We’re going to take the good, take the bad. We’re going to learn from it, and hopefully, we’ll look back at this and say this was a turning point or this was good for us.”
Ezekiel Elliott collected 62 yards and a touchdown on 12 carries while adding two catches for 29 yards on four targets in the loss. His 14 touches matched a season-low. Elliott has the fewest amount of carries (85) and yards (386) of his career through the first five games of a season. “I just think it’s how the season has unfolded. I’m not really concerned at all,” Elliott said. “We’re still the same offense. To start the season out they were kind of easing me in”.
Amari Cooper provided 11 catches for a career-high 226 yards and a touchdown. Cooper was limited in Wednesday’s practice but he said the heel injury that bothered him in training camp and the start of the year is no longer an issue.
Help’s on the way
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said he’s “optimistic” both Smith and Collins return for Week 6 against the Jets. “Tyron is looking promising,” Jones said. “We’ll see how this week goes, and of course, that’s huge. And La’el has a chance. He is tough. He’s going to be hard to keep out of there.”
Jones added he’s not thinking about firing Coach Jason Garrett despite the back-to-back losses. Garrett does not have a contract beyond 2019 and is in a must-win situation to return in 2020.

Why Bet on NY Jets?
The Jets’ offensive ineptitude continued in a 31-6 loss at Philadelphia last week. Brandon Graham had a career-high three of Philadelphia’s 10 sacks as the Eagles smothered third-string quarterback Luke Falk and overwhelmed New York’s offense. Falk made his second start after opening the season on New York’s practice squad. Falk threw two interceptions and was sacked nine times before leaving late in the game and being replaced by David Fales.
The Jets went 12 straight quarters without an offensive touchdown before Vyncint Smith scored in the fourth quarter. That was the longest streak in the league since the Titans went 14 straight quarters without an offensive TD in 2010.
At least the Jets will get starting QB Sam Darnold this week from mono. Darnold took first-team reps last week before being declared out of Week 5 action against the Eagles. He hasn’t played since a season-opening 17-16 loss to the Bills when he connected on 68.3% of his passes while throwing for 175 yards and one touchdown. The Jets started Trevor Siemian in Week 2, but they lost their backup for the season when he suffered ligament damage in his ankle during the first half of a 23-3 loss to the Browns.
Two Jets are eligible off suspension this week in linebacker Brandon Copeland and tight end Chris Herndon. However, Herndon didn’t practice Wednesday. Coach Adam Gase said Herndon pulled his hammy while running routes on his own last Friday. He seems doubtful at best.
Star middle linebacker C.J. Mosley is expected to miss his fourth game in a row. “Doubtful at best” was how Gase described Mosley’s status. Gase admitted the injury was more serious than anticipated, saying they came to this conclusion after a “deeper dive” into the matter.
