Jacksonville (4-4) at NY Jets (4-4)
Current Line: Jets -7
The issue I have had all season with the Jags is their lack of production outside of RB Maurice Jones-Drew, and I don’t expect that to change on Sunday. Look for MJD to get close to the 30-touch mark again and for the Jets—coming off of a bye week—to have plenty of new packages on defense to get to QB David Garrard on third downs and cause turnovers. I am taking the Jets at home, but it will be a physical battle up front with the Jets defense finding a way to slow down MJD in the fourth quarter.
Jets 17 Jags 13
Denver (6-2) at Washington (2-6)
Current Line: Broncos -3
