The Green Bay Packers look like great value at NY Jets Sunday afternoon.
They took a 24-27 loss at Chicago last week but looked rather comfortable on the defensive side of the ball, holding the Bears to 332 yards of offense. Here they’ll face a Jets’ team which is averaging just 297.9 yards per game and I don’t think NYJ rookie QB Sam Darnold will have much success moving the sticks in this one.
On the offensive side of the ball, Packers’ QB Aaron Rodgers is expected to start despite suffering a groin injury last week. “I think it’s a lot about leadership,” Rodgers said of his desire to play the Jets. “If I want to be listened to and followed and looked up to, how could I stand here and say that these games that don’t matter for playoffs, I’m going to cash it in? That’s just not the way I lead, and I’m super competitive, and I want to be out there with the guys, and I look forward to being out there.”
Rodgers’ will be without some of his most trusted targets but must still feel pretty confident as the Jets are fielding one of the worst defenses in the NFL, including No. 22 in total defense and No. 26 in scoring defense.
The Jets are 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight games overall and 0-3-1 ATS in their last four home games. Green Bay has been atrocious on the road going 0-7 SU and 1-5-1 ATS, but I think the visitors will get the job done here.
