Patriots vs Jets: Jared Hackmyer picks the lackluster Monday Night Football matchup – can winless NY score?
Patriots (-10) JETS (42.5)
Jared’s Pick: Patriots
Breakout Player: QB Cam Newton
The winless Jets will be without QB Sam Darnold against New England. Not that Darnold was winning them games, but their offense looks significantly worse with Joe Flacco under center. New England’s record isn’t pretty, but their defense is still considered above average. I think the Patriots are going to dominate on both sides of the ball after watching both teams’ performances through the season's first eight weeks.
