The Jets close out a three game homestand today with a 1pm matchup vs the visiting Minnesota Vikings. Readers, I am standing in the parking lot of MetLife right now and it is cold and windy. This is Jets football weather as it is meant to be. The Vikings are a soft dome team and we all know Kirk Cousins does not have the requisite arm strength to throw darts through the stiff Meadowlands wind. Cousins is 1-4 in his career as a starting QB playing in MetLife with an average score of 17 points. He threw 9 INTs in those five games. Pathetic! One thing you learn in a lengthy gambling career is to ride the hot hand. Sam Darnold’s right hand could melt steel right now. We are taking the Jets and the points here.
The Pick: Jets +3.5
Season record: 3-3
