Why The Jets Could Cover The Spread
When the NFL schedule makers created this game for Sunday Night Football, they envisioned a showdown between Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers. Unfortunately, Rodgers suffered a season-ending injury in the opening weekend. The Jets must rely on Wilson.
Wilson has 467 yards passing with two touchdowns, four interceptions, and an ugly 52.4 completion percentage. However, he has some help on this team. Hall has 26 rushes for 154 yards, while Cook has rushed 25 times for 58 yards with seven catches and 42 yards. Currently, The receiver Wilson has 12 catches for 165 yards and two scores, while Allen Lazard has seven receptions for 108 yards.
The defense remains a strength. Ultimately, Quinton Jefferson has three solo tackles and two sacks. Solomon Thomas has five solo tackles and one sack. Likewise, Jermaine Johnson has 10 solo tackles and one sack, while Jordan Whitehead has added 17 solo tackles and three interceptions. The defense must play its best game possible to have a chance at defeating Mahomes.
The Jets will cover the spread if the offense can deliver long, sustained drives. Furthermore, they need good quarterback play from Wilson, as he must avoid turnovers. Good drives on offense will keep the defense fresh.
Final Chiefs-Jets Prediction & Pick
The Jets are not a great team without Rodgers. regardless, they still have a great defense and can put up a fight. The Chiefs likely win this game. However, it will not be the blowout many believe it will be. The Jets will come out fired up on Sunday Night Football to give the Chiefs a good game.
Final Chiefs-Jets Prediction & Pick: New York Jets: +8.5 (-110)
