The Jets suck.
The New York Jets are an embarrassment of a Football team right now. They have a HC who’s supposed to be an Offensive genius / QB whisperer and its evident that he’s completely useless. The Jets Pass Offense has posted an average of 179 .5 yards on the season which unsurprisingly ranks as worst in the NFL but even worse is their measly 5.8 YPA (Yards per attempt) anything under 7 is considered bad so to be under 6 is just ridiculous and the run game isn’t much better averaging just 98.5 yards per game. Sam Darnold finished their TNF game vs the Broncos without throwing a TD and due to a shoulder injury will be replaced by the definitely not elite Joe Flacco so its 2020 and we have a NFL starting backfield consisting of Joe Flacco and Frank Gore. Are you kidding me?!
The Cardinals have somehow gone from a Super Bowl dark horse 2-0 to a probably finishing bottom of their division 2-2 and whilst Kyler Murray’s stats have looked okay in those two losses there has been a clear drop off in his performances compared to the first two games of the season but really outside of Nuk Hopkins he hasn’t had much help in the passing game and his Running Back Kenyan Drake has pretty much been non existent since week 1. On Defense its been pretty uninspiring but they really won’t have to be anything special to stop this toothless offense.
I can’t take the Jets again until they show me something, anything on offense and although the Cardinals are on a two game skid I think they’re far too good to be beaten by a Jets side lead by NFL OAP’s.
I LOVE this matchup for DeAndre Hopkins, he was a little beat up in their loss to the Panthers last week but has been fantastic in the three games before that and just hasn’t got the TD numbers his yards have deserved only posting one on the season so far but in two previous career games Hopkins has gone for over 100 yards and 2 TD’s in each game. Nuk has yet to have less than 7 receptions so far this season so the 6.5 U/O line is looking like value to me against the leagues worst Pass Defense.
