Jets’ Season to Date
The Jets have the worst record in the NFL. Winless over the 1st half of the season. The Jets have covered once this season in 18-10 defeat to the Buffalo Bills. This team is now in rebuild mode after releasing the highly paid RB LeVeon Bell. QB Sam Darnold has been dealing with injuries all season and poor play from all sides of the ball. The Jets look done but they see an opportunity to get a good confidence builder with a upset over their biggest foe.
