Previewing the First “official” TNF Game

I’m going to do things a little differently.  First I’m going to preview the game between the Jets and the Patriots, and then after work I will do the rest of my Week 2 picks.  Work is starting to turn into a slave labor camp so I’m going to need as much sleep as possible between now and my next shift.  Here goes my pick.

Jets at Patriots

(1-0-0)

Jets

(1-0-0)

Patriots

Ever since that surprise 28-21 win in the 2010 Divisional playoffs by the Jets things have gone New England’s way.  It looks like the Patriots will all but run away with the division, but I see some vulnerabilities.  I’m going to flashback to 2009 when the Patriots were favored to beat the Jets in Week 2 of the NFL season.  New England had just struggled to a win over Buffalo while the Jets had just beat Houston.  Both teams were 1-0.  The Jets surprised the Patriots and beat them by a score of 16-9.  Oh, and Mark Sanchez was also a rookie at the time.

See where I’m going with this.  History may not repeat itself, but the stars may be aligned for a Jets upset.  My head says New England, but I’ve got a strong gut feeling that the Jets will win this football game especially since lady luck was strongly on their side when they beat Tampa Bay 18-17.  We’ll see what happens.

My Pick: Jets

My Record: 9-7

Stay classy everyone!
