Sean Koerner’s Projected Odds
- Projected Spread: Patriots -21
- Projected Total: 44
The Patriots made a mockery of the 19-point spread last week. Now they face the Jets, who will roll out their third-string quarterback, Luke Falk.
One thing I overlooked last week was Belichick vs. Dolphins head coach Brian Flores and offensive coordinator Chad O’Shea, who recently left New England for Miami. Belichick left Brady in with a 37-point lead late in the game to throw another touchdown pass, which had to be some sort of reminder from Belichick that he is the boss.
We might get him to ease off the gas a bit this week if the Patriots take an early lead. — Sean Koerner
Stuckey: Under 43.5
The Jets’ third-string quarterback will make his first career start in Foxboro? With a depleted receiving corps? In front of a subpar offensive line? Against one of the best secondaries in the NFL?
That’s not how you dream it up as a kid.
I’m just not sure how the Jets move the ball.
The Patriots and their man heavy defense have three corners who can take away anybody the Jets put out there on the outside. I assume the Jets will play super slow and feed Le’Veon Bell to try to shorten the game as much as possible — it’s their only prayer to even stay remotely close. Perhaps Bell can break a few big plays, but this is just a nightmare matchup for the Falk and Co.
Tom Brady and the Pats could put up 50, but I’ll take my chances with the under at anything higher than 43. (Remember that 43 is the most important number when it comes to NFL totals since the extra point rule change.)
