Why To Bet On The Jets

The most talked-about team in the NFL, thanks to an HBO special series and the summer-long holdout of cornerback Darrelle Revis, found its footing in week two against another one of the league’s more celebrated franchises, the New England Patriots. The Jets looked very strong in a 28-14 victory over the Pats, just six days after a markedly inept performance in a 10-9 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. In that loss to the Ravens, New York quarterback Mark Sanchez threw for just 74 yards, and when one accounts for the 14 yards the Jets lost due to sacks in that game, New York produced just 60 net passing yards in that contest.

The week-two outing for Sanchez and the rest of the Jets’ offense was decidedly better, to say the least.

Sanchez clearly and undeniably outplayed Tom Brady on Sept. 19. The second-year performer from USC completed 70 percent of his passes and tossed three touchdown strikes without an interception. The final stat line was gleaming for “The Sanchize”: 21-of-30, 220 yards, three touchdowns, no picks. If New York gets that kind of performance from Sanchez for the rest of the season, the Jets will indeed find themselves back in the AFC Championship Game, with a chance to advance to Super Bowl XLV.

Why To Bet On The Dolphins

While the Jets were solid in week two, it’s hard to find a better defense in the NFL right now than the one owned by the Dolphins and coach Tony Sparano. Miami has held each of its first two opponents to exactly 10 points while scoring nine points in its own right. The Dolphins scored a safety at Buffalo in week one and scooped up a fumble for a touchdown in week two at Minnesota. This defense has been able to deliver two wins for Miami despite the fact that its offense has scored exactly two touchdowns to date in 2010. Playing in front of a home crowd in a night game, the Dolphins’ defense has a very good chance to rattle Sanchez. The Dolphins will be stoked for their home opener, and just a few timely plays from their defense could easily tilt this game in Miami’s favor.

The other big reason to pick Miami is that the Jets are banged up. Darrelle Revis pulled a hamstring against New England and will probably have a tough time playing in this contest. Defensive tackle Kris Jenkins is out for the year, and two other players – defensive end Jason Taylor and receiver Brad Smith – were also injured against New England. The Jets are coming off a big win, but they’re also very thin right now. Miami can use this to its advantage.

How The Game Will Play Out

Both of these teams are averaging under 19 points per game. (Miami is averaging only 10 points a game if you take away the team’s defensive scores so far this season.) This will be a close and hard-fought defensive battle, but New York’s offense can do more than Miami’s can. As long as Sanchez can stay away from the turnover bug (in other words, no more than one turnover in this game), the Jets should be able to outlast the Dolphins. Miami can’t win 15-10 or 14-10 games throughout the regular season.
