The Patriots and the Jets both had to be encouraged by the play of their rookie quarterback’s last week, even if results didn’t go their way.

Mac Jones probably deserved a win after leading New England all the way down to the 22-yard line with under five minutes to play, while Zach Wilson showed off his arm for a touchdown and a couple of big completions to Corey Davis.

Turnovers were a big problem last week for both sides and it’s likely we see some more growing pains in this one.

That said, New York’s offensive line was woeful last week giving up six sacks, which is a huge recipe for disaster with a rookie under center. 

If it wasn’t for a costly fumble, I’m confident the Patriots beat the Dolphins, especially after the way they converted on third down.

Verdict

With 10 successive wins to their name over the Jets, this might be one of the safest bets of the week.
