Odds from 

I like the Jets in this game. Yes, I know that bucks the odds makers, but if you look at it the Jets had a balanced attack an did not rely on the quarterback to be the leading rusher like the Falcons had to do. Look for that to continue to be the case here, but also look for the Jets amped up defensive pressure to make a big change in the game here and keep the Falcons off balance. Still, neither offense will do enough to get the total threatened in this game here.
