Patriots vs. Jets: NFL Week 2 Thursday Night Wagering Lines
Righting the ship with a solid win on NFL Sunday Night Football, after we missed the mark on the National Football League Kickoff Thursday contest, we look to keep it rolling as we preview the Week 2 Thursday Night battle. We get an all AFC East tilt tonight as the New England Patriots host the New York Jets. Kickoff is slated for 8:25 PM on September 12, 2013, from Gillette Stadium on 1 Patriot Place in Foxboro, MA. We like the Patriots to ground the Jets!
New England Patriots: Survive Week 1 scare versus Bills
Opening their 2013 NFL schedule with back to back AFC East tilts, New England can gain sole possession of first place in the division with a win over New York and a loss by Miami against Indianapolis during NFL Week 2 Sunday action. Posted as 9.5 road favorites last weekend, the Patriots were fortunate to escape Ralph Wilson Stadium with a win as they edged the Buffalo Bills 23-21 with a last second Stephen Gostkowski field goal during Week 1 NFL action. We fully expect that QB Tom Brady and Crew will be much better in their home opener tonight.
New York Jets: Buccaneers mistake secures Gang Green’s NFL Week 1 win
Just as the Patriots did, New York registered a last second win on the road during NFL Week 1 action. Following a Buccaneers field goal, that gave Tampa Bay a 17-15 lead with 34 seconds left on the clock, QB Geno Smith organized a four play drive that covered 50 yards and set up a 48-yard Nick Folk field goal to secure a 18-17 road win for New York. The game winning drive was aided by a 15-yard personal foul penalty on Bucs linebacker Lavonte David who laid a late hit on a Smith after he scrambled for a 10 yard gain with two seconds left in the game.
