New York has struggled mightily in its first two games, blowing a 16-3 lead against the Bills in Week 1 and then getting dismantled 23-3 by the Browns on Monday night. The Patriots, meanwhile, have covered both games this season and scored over 30 points each time. And despite releasing Antonio Brown after just one game with the team, New England remains a massive favorite against the Jets on Sunday.

The Jets, meanwhile, saw their quarterback situation get even worse when Trevor Siemian, already filling in for Sam Darnold (mononucleosis), hurt his ankle against the Browns. This week, New York will turn to Luke Falk, who finished with 198 yards on 20 completions last week against Cleveland. Falk threw 119 touchdowns at Washington State and recorded at least 30 touchdown passes in his final three seasons as a Cougar.
