There’s no doubt that the Patriots have looked borderline unstoppable in the early going and they should be Super Bowl favourites. But their schedule has been a joke. The only team with a current winning record the Pats have faced is Buffalo, and let’s just say we aren’t buying the Bills yet. Things don’t get any tougher for New England on Monday against a bad Jets team. Things do get much more challenging for the Patriots starting in Week 8.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Pats go for another season sweep of the Jets, beating them 30-14 – but not covering a huge number – in Week 3. Third-stringer Luke Falk started at QB for the Jets — Sam Darnold was out with mono — and led the team to all of 105 total yards and zero third-down conversions. Both of the Jets’ scores were defensive touchdowns when the game was already out of hand. Tom Brady threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns. Sony Michel and Rex Burkhead each added a rushing touchdown.

New York’s only win in the past 10 meetings was 26-20 in overtime at home on Dec. 27, 2015. For some reason, Bill Belichick opted to kick off to start OT and the Jets went right down and scored to win it. New York was actually a decent team back then.

New England has covered only four of the past 10 in the series. The over/under is 3-7 in those.

New England Patriots

New England was a 17-point home favourite last Thursday against a Giants team missing its three best offensive players. The Patriots were rather sluggish on offence but that top-ranked defence forced four turnovers and scored as did the special teams in a 35-14 victory.

Brady didn’t throw for a score and had two turnovers but became the oldest player in league history with two rushing touchdowns and also passed Peyton Manning for No. 2 on the all-time passing yardage list – Drew Brees is well ahead at No. 1. New England has now won 19 consecutive games against a first or second-year quarterback, the longest such streak in NFL history. The Pats get another one of those here.

New York Jets

The Jets got their first win for Coach Adam Gase in a 24-22 home upset of the Cowboys on Sunday. Darnold hadn’t played since Week 1 but returned and had 338 yards passing and two scores. One of those scores as a 92-yarder to Robby Anderson.

Le’Veon Bell had his first rushing touchdown as a Jet. New York stopped Dallas on a two-point try with under a minute to go. Top Jets linebacker C.J. Mosley and offensive lineman Kelechi Osemele missed the game due to injury. Left tackle Kelvin Beachum left with a sprained ankle.
