Few expected the New York Jets to win a game this season and nobody predicted they’d have three wins and would be fighting for first-place in the AFC East at this stage of the season. Yet here they are and they made an impression on Patriots coach Bill Belichick with their gutsy effort in a loss to the defending champs. The Jets will look to start another winning streak when take on a team they’ve already beaten this season, the Miami Dolphins, in a Week 7 matchup.
The Jets have taken an us-against-world stance this season and it’s paid off. And why not when the pundits were saying they could have the worst team in the league. It looked that way in the first two outings with the Jets getting smoked by Buffalo and Oakland by a combined score of 66-32. They went on an improbable run, knocking off Miami, Jacksonville and Cleveland in the next three, but things were going to be different with the Patriots coming to town. The Jets held their own in that game and likely made believers of some. Still, they’re the Jets and the good times could come to an end soon.
The Jets aren’t as talented as most teams in the league and therefore they must take care of the football. They built a two-touchdown lead against the Patriots only to give it away with a Josh McCown interception setting up the Pats for a game-tying touchdown at the end of the first half. The Jets turned the ball over three times, including a controversial fumble at the goal line that was originally ruled a touchdown only to be overturned on video replay. They have 11 giveaways this season, which rank near the bottom of the league.

Week 6: Patriots 24, Jets 17

Over/Under Total Result: Under 48.5
The Jets jumped out to a 14-0 lead only to surrender the next 24 points. A Chandler Catanzaro field goal with less than four minutes left allowed the Jets to cover the 9-point spread, moving them to 4-2 ATS, but they couldn’t get the equalizer. McCown threw for 354 yards and two scores, but his two interceptions were turned into 10 points and the overturned touchdown proved costly as the under cashed again.
Week 5: Jets 17, Browns 14
ATS Result: Jets -1.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 41.5
The Jets ran for only 34 yards and compiled a total of 212, but they still came away with a cover win after Josh McCown torched his former club for a pair of second half touchdown passes. New York became the first team to trail Cleveland after an early second-half scoring pass put the Jets down 7-3. The defense kept up the pressure, turned an interception into the go-ahead score and forced a turnover on downs to produce the second touchdown. It still wasn’t enough to reach the total, however.
Week 4: Jets 23, Jaguars 20 (OT)
ATS Result: Jets +4
Over/Under Total Result: Over 38.5
It was a crazy game that seemed like no one wanted to win. But it was the Jets who prevailed in the end. They shut down Bortles and built a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter before Josh McCown helped give it all back. A backwards pass was returned for a touchdown and an interception allowed the Jags to tie the game late. But the Jets used a taunting foul to get in position for the game-winning overtime field goal, giving them an outright win for the second consecutive week.
Week 3: Jets 20, Dolphins 6
ATS Result: Jets +5.5
Over/Under Total Result: Under 43
The Jets completely shut down a Dolphins team that has a lot of offensive firepower so that part of their game can’t be overlooked. McCown is using everything at his disposal and got Jeremy Kerley and Seferian-Jenkins involved in the offense. The big play was delivered by Anderson, though, whose 69-yard touchdown catch expanded the lead to 10-0 early in the second quarter. But the Jets won this game on defense, keeping the score below the total.
Week 2: Raiders 45, Jets 20
ATS Result: Raiders -14
Over/Under Total Result: Over 44
The Jets aren’t good enough to overcome mistakes and Kalif Raymond delivered the biggest blunder of the game. Trailing 14-10, the Jets forced a Raiders punt late in the first half. Raymond misplayed the ball, the Raiders recovered and scored shortly after to take a 21-10 lead at the break. Not that the Jets would have won the game, but the momentum was flushed after that play and they never recovered, failing to cover the two-touchdown spread while falling to 0-2 ATS.
Week 1: Bills 21, Jets 12
ATS Result: Bills -7
Over/Under Total Result: Under 42
It wasn’t a surprise that the Jets played below the closing total in Buffalo with two teams that have their issues on offense. We also saw a head-scratching decision by Todd Bowles late in the fourth quarter, which also prevented the Jets from covering the spread. Trailing by the final margin, New York had the ball near midfield facing a fourth down. Bowles elected to punt and the Bills essentially ran out the remaining time. There was no guarantee the Jets would have converted and continued the drive, but they never had the chance.
Preseason Record: 2-2
ATS Record: 3-1
Over/Under Total Record: 1-3
The Jets did win a couple of preseason games, but they were less than spectacular and that’s what we can expect from them in 2017. They aren’t going to score a lot of points and the total for the opener is the lowest on the board. If their defense cooperates the Jets could be a boon for under bettors.
