A classic of classics, it’s Week 11 in the AFC East, and this time it’s foe against foe. Again. Besides the real bad blood between Coach Belichic and the Jets, his former team (remember he resigned after just a few hours as their head coach,) is he going to be able to roughhouse the Jets enough to call it a day?

Jets vs Pats Highlights
Last season, New York struggled with inconsistent quarterback play and a general lack of effective weapons. Despite the fact that they are still a team in transition, they will want to see an improvement in their performance to justify their recent investments in a new coach, a new quarterback, and new offensive tools. Robert Saleh, the team’s head coach, is in his second season. While the ownership seems to support him, year two is typically when head coaches are asked to produce results. He would benefit greatly from a victory over their longtime foe, the New England Patriots. Can he do it?
Though Bill Belichick might not agree, the Pats are still in the midst of a change. They can be happy with how Mac Jones performed as a quarterback in his rookie season, as they managed to scrape through a difficult season with a struggling Cam Newton. There is no reason why they can’t make a further playoff run in January when you consider they have a challenging defense that’s always capable of scoring points and takeaways.
With the Patriots having won 12 times straight games against the Jets (that was prior to 2022,) Gang Green hasn’t won since that last overtime triumph they got in 2015. While this has pushed New England towards a 71-54 record (head-to-head,) will they be able to assert their dominance?
In light of the current standings, the NFL betting odds will probably see the Pats as strong favorites at home. If betting on NFL games in Week 11, it’s probably a solid, sound idea to favor a New England victory. Make sure you check the NFL injury report before taking on any action on your NFL schedule game, though.
