This is a game that we immediately circled this week as one to watch out for, knowing that the spread was going to come out relatively high and up near a touchdown. The oddsmakers are insinuating that Tennessee is two-points better off than the Jets are this year, but we just can’t imagine how that is the case. In our view, these are the exact same teams, except for the fact that New York has better talent on the defensive side of the ball. Both teams want to run it, both teams want to keep their relatively young and relatively inexperienced quarterbacks out of bad situations, both quarterbacks turn the ball over far too much anyway, neither set of receivers is impressive, and both front sevens are out of this world and are hyper aggressive. And the difference is?
The difference is that the Jets are looked upon as a joke in the NFL, and the Titans aren’t. However, we have to get all of this out of our heads when we handicap the NFL betting lines in this game, and we know that when you strip back all of the jokes about the Butt Fumble or Head Coach Rex Ryan and his obsession with feet or the fact that GM John Idzik is almost praying that the team loses games so he can fire Ryan and pick his own coach, what is left is a team that is 3-0 ATS and 2-1 SU for a reason. New York is two games better than the Giants or the Redskins right now, and to be completely honest, we think that this is a team that can make the playoffs in the AFC. We warned at the outset of the year that the Jets weren’t going to be as bad as most thought if they could get any productive play out of QB Geno Smith, and that is exactly what is happening.
