My Prediction: Despite the Patriots blowing out the Jets at home in the regular season, I think this line is a little high. The Jets are flying right now after beating the Colts and the Patriots offense hasn’t been tested in a few weeks. I think the Jets run the ball well and control the clock and keep it close.
