Jets +9 at Cowboys 2 units
Defense, special teams and the run game can keep the Jets competitive and in lower scoring games. 5 sacks, 5.8 yards per attempt vs Josh Allen Monday and they can get a lot of pressure without blitzing. The Jets defense will likely have to force 1 to 2 turnovers and the offense will have to lean on Breece Hall and Dalvin Cook a lot because 1 to 2 turnovers from Zach Wilson vs the Cowboys defense is probably a given. 172 rush yards for the Jets vs Buffalo and both RBs were involved in the short pass game. Good redzone defense forcing a few field goals and limiting big plays would give the Jets a realistic shot at keeping the Cowboys around 23 or 20 points and playing a one score game. The Jets defense likely rallies around the situation.
Week 1: 2-3 -1.45
