AccuScore: Patriots beat Jets again
By James Walker
The New York Jets (3-3) are technically in first place in the AFC East via tiebreakers. But that has not convinced AccuScore to pick New York to upset the New England Patriots (3-3) at Gillette Stadium.
According to computer simulations, the reigning AFC champion Patriots are 79-percent favorites to beat the Jets on Sunday. The winner will be in first place in the division regardless of the outcome in the Buffalo game, because New England and New York own the head-to-head tiebreaker over the Bills (3-3), who host the Tennessee Titans on Sunday.
