Jets week 8
After a thorough embarrassment coming out of the bye week, the Jets return home to host the surging Bengals squad. After allowing a 50 burger to Mac Jones, the last thing this defense wants to see is Joe Burrow and Jamarr Chase coming to town.
The Bengals looked quite good blowing out the Ravens last week. However we can’t forget that this team was outplayed by the Jaguars in Cincinnati. They are far from infallible. With Mike White making his debut today the Jets are a long shot at +10.5. All we really want to see from White today is that he is not a total disaster on the level of Luke Falk or Bryce Petty. Is he good enough to keep it within the double digit spread? Who knows. He didn’t look terrible against New England when he came in relief. Maybe with a week to prepare and a scaled down playbook the offense will actually score a point in the first quarter. I’m counting on the Bengals team that almost lost to Jacksonville to show up today and taking the Jets and the points.
Pick: Jets +10.5
Big Hank’s Long Shot of the Week: Jets money line +410
