New York Jets
New York, with a little help from a questionable late personal foul call, upended the Bengals 34-31 at home Sunday to earn a victory. The Jets improved to 2-5 on the season and sit third in the AFC East coming into this contest.
Mike Smith filled in for an injured Zach Wilson and made the most of his opportunity. White completed 37/45 passes for 405 yards and 3 touchdowns, and caught a 2-point conversion pass on the go-ahead score. He joined Cam Newton (2011) as the only players since at least 1950 to throw for 400 or more yards in their first career start.
On the year, the Jets are 19th in the league in passing offense as they average 230.9 yards per game through the air. The team is in the league in rushing offense as they put up just 75.6 yards per contest.
In terms of scoring New York is one of the worst teams in the league on both sides of the ball. The Jets are 30th in the league in scoring offense as they manage just 16.3 points per game. The Jets are also 30th in scoring defense as they allow an average of 29.4 points per contest.
Indianapolis started the year 0-3, but then won 3 of their next 4 games to set up a monstrous showdown with Tennessee at home on Sunday. With a win the Colts would have reached the .500 mark and shrunk the Titans division lead to just 1 game.
Unfortunately, Indianapolis wasted an early 14-0 lead and fell to Tennessee in overtime 34-31. The loss drops the Colts 3 games back from the Titans and more importantly the head to head tiebreaker as they were swept in the season series.
On the year, the Colts are 23rd in the league in passing offense with an average of 228.9 yards per game through the air while they are 12th in rushing offense with 122 yards per contest.
In terms of scoring Indianapolis is among the middle of the pack. The Colts are 14th in the league in scoring offense with an average of 25 points per game. The Colts are also 14th in scoring defense by allowing 22.9 points per contest.

4* Free Week 9 NFL Betting Prediction: New York +10.5 & OVER
The line being set at 10.5 is very large when you consider it’s a matchup between a 2-5 and 3-5 team. Indianapolis is certainly a better team then their record reflects due to an early season tough schedule, but they are still underwhelming.
The Colts led 14-0 last week but couldn’t hold that lead for long and eventually lost a must-win game in OT. Meanwhile, New York is fresh off a win where they were 11.5 point underdogs.
The Jets played loose and care free with Mike Smith behind center as he lit up the Bengals defense all day. Accompanied with some Cincinnati turnovers they were able to hang close throughout. We just saw Carson Wentz throw 2 interceptions last week and it’s hard to imagine the Colts don’t cough up the ball again this week.
I’m not saying the Jets will win again as I do believe the Colts are a much better team, but I think 10.5 points is too much for this primetime game.
Give me New York to hang close in this game.
