New England vs New York: NFL Week 7 Thursday Night Football
National Football League Week 7 opens with an AFC East rivalry battle as New England hosts New York during Thursday Night Football prime time action. The Patriots have won two straight while the Jets are winless in their last five contests. Kickoff is slated for 8:25 PM ET on October 16, 2014, at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, MA. Tom Brady & Crew are huge home chalk in this clash tonight.
New England Patriots: AFC East leaders are rolling
Following a 41-14 Week 4 blow out loss on the road in Kansas City, New England (4-2) has posted back to back wins over the Bengals (43-17) and Bills (37-22) and have taken sole possession of first overall in the rather weak AFC East division. The Patriots are dealing with injury issues as they lost LB Jerod Mayo and RB Stevan Ridley for the season in their win over Buffalo while QB Tom Brady has a mild ankle strain. RB Brandon Bolden steps in for Ridley but, moving forward, the Patriots will become even more pass happy than they have already been early in the 2014 NFL season.
New York Jets: Long season just keeps getting longer in the Big Apple
Although they put up a good fight during a 31-17 Week 6 home loss against the powerhouse Denver Broncos, New York has now lost five straight games. The Jets are a total mess as they have been outscored by a 96-158 count in their first six contests. Gang Green ranks 27th in total passing yards and that’s not a good thing when you are trying to match a high scoring offense like the one the Patriots will bring to the table in this contest. On defense, New York is tied with Tampa Bay for last in the NFL with 15 touchdown passes allowed. The Jets are in tough on the road here.
NFL 2014 Week 7 Thursday Night Football Prediction: New England has failed to cover double digit spreads at home against New York two years in a row now. The Patriots won 13-10 as -11 favorites in 2013 and 29-16 as -11.5 chalk in 2012. That said, we don’t see the Jets offense putting up a whole lots points in this game and we are confident that the Patriots will. Lay 315 units on Brady & Crew to cover the spread posted on the betting board at the TopBet online sportsbook.
