An AFC East clash is on tap Sunday when the New England Patriots visit the New York Jets. Both teams feature rookie quarterbacks who are searching for their first NFL wins after Week 1 defeats. New England had a costly late fumble as it succumbed 17-16 to the Dolphins, while the Jets' 19-14 loss to Carolina wasn't as close as the final score indicated.
Kickoff for Jets vs. Patriots is set for 1 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.

Week 2 NFL picks for Jets vs. Patriots
Before you tune in to Sunday's Patriots vs. Jets game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up almost $7,900 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. It went a sizzling 24-14 on top-rated NFL picks last season, returning more than $800. The model also enters Week 2 of the 2021 season on an incredible 121-79 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
For Jets vs. Patriots, the model likes the under (43) hitting with room to spare. The model projects 41 combined points to be scored, as the under hits in almost 60 percent of simulations.
A Carolina defense that was among the bottom half in the league last year terrorized the Jets in the opener, and the model foresees much of the same in Week 2. After giving up six sacks vs. the Panthers, New York will be without starting tackle Mekhi Becton against New England, and the SportsLine model also shows the Jets averaging less than four yards per carry on Sunday.
Meanwhile, the Patriots are by no means an offensive juggernaut and they could only muster one touchdown versus the Dolphins. The team was also unusually sloppy as four different Patriots fumbled, with the team losing two of those. Jets coach Robert Saleh, who was the defensive coordinator for the 49ers' 2019 Super Bowl team, will throw lots of different looks Mac Jones' way, unlike ones the rookie has ever seen before. Both defenses are ahead of their offenses at this point of the season, so the model acknowledges we're in store for a low-scoring affair.
