These clubs met Week 17 last year at New England and the Patriots rolled 38-3 in what would be the last game as Jets coach for Todd Bowles. Tom Brady threw for three first-half touchdowns. Brady completed 24 of 33 passes for 250 yards and four scores overall. Jets QB Sam Darnold completed 16 of 28 passes for 167 yards, but he also had a fumble that gave New England a touchdown.
New England leads the series, 65-54-1 overall. The Patriots are 35-25-1 all-time against the Jets at home, including 1-1 at home in the postseason and 14-3 at Gillette Stadium in the regular season.
Why Bet on NY Jets?
The Jets were utterly useless offensively on Monday night in a 23-3 loss to the Cleveland Browns. New York was without starting quarterback Sam Darnold due to mono – he won’t play here – and then lost backup Trevor Siemian to an ankle injury. And now Siemian is done for the year.
Siemian’s leg bent awkwardly when he was taken to the turf on a late hit by Browns defensive end Myles Garrett. He eventually was able to walk off the field under his own power, but was quickly ruled out for the remainder of the game. He ended up tearing ankle ligaments.
Seeing the first NFL action of his young career, Luke Falk completed 20 of 25 passes for 198 yards in relief duties. Falk will get his first start this Sunday against the New England Patriots. Le’Veon Bell rushed 21 times for 68 yards and caught all 10 of his targets for 61 yards in the loss. Unfortunately, Bell lost a fumble inside the 10-yard line in the fourth quarter while trying to fight for the end zone.
The Jets could bench center Ryan Kalil. They did in Monday’s fiasco vs. the Browns, and coach Adam Gase hinted that will remain the case for the time being. “We’re probably a ways from where he wants to be,” Gase said Tuesday. The Jets lured ex-Panther Kalil out of semi-retirement in August. Jonotthan Harrison is the next man up for Gang Green.
Gase also said that linebacker Jordan Jenkins (calf) and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (knee/hamstring) are week-to-week, while linebacker C.J. Mosley (groin) remains day-to-day.
