All very clear, right?

Well, let’s go to the picks:


Detroit at New York Jets (-0.5)

You may be surprised by this choice for Game of the Week. It’s just that, honestly, I don’t think we’ll have a more entertaining duel than this.

On one side are the Lions, who have won five of their most recent six, their only loss being to Buffalo (and by a field goal).

In their last four victories they have scored 31 or more points, including 40 to Jacksonville and 34 to Minnesota In the past week. Furthermore, in that six-week period, Jared Goff he has eight touchdown passes and zero interceptions.

The team that made us fall in love with hard knocks and to which many experts labeled “Surprise of the Year”, has finally clicked thanks to the unique style of the coach Dan Campbell.

On the other side are the Jets, who after starting the season with a 6-3 record, are 1-3 after the bye week and have had to use three quarterbacks, including zach wilsonthe second overall pick in the 2021 Draft who is beginning to emit a fetid smell of bust.

Mike White (80 of 129,952 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions) hasn’t done badly in relief, but he’s still in doubt for the game against the Lions after a couple of vicious rib shots he took in Buffalo.

If White can’t start, then the Jets will have to turn to the veteran. Joe Flaccowho is 1-3 this season.

New York’s defense could also miss one of its starters, tackle quinnen williamsleading the team in sacks with 11 and who suffered a calf injury in the loss to the Bills.

The Jets rank fourth in pass defense and sixth in average points allowed per game, at 18.7.

One of the duels to follow in this game is the one between the rookie cornerback of the Jets, Willow Gardner in view of Amon-Ra St. Brown. Gardener leads the NFL with 16 passes defensed and St. Brown leads Detroit wide receivers with 82 catches, 898 yards and six touchdowns.

The pick: Despite the losses on both sides of the ball, the Jets defense will keep this game close, but Goff and Detroit’s offense will make enough big plays to settle this matchup and still hope they can make the playoffs as a Wild Card in the NFC. Lions 23-20 NYJ
