NFL odds Week 7: Jets vs. Patriots

Tom Brady and Co. are heavy favorites despite the brash talking of Rex Ryan.

The New England Patriots are 12-point favorites over the New York Jets for Sunday's contest at Gillette Stadium.

Bill Belichick's club comes in with an identical 3-3 record to Rex Ryan's Jets, but the oddsmakers feel those marks don't reflect the overall talent on the Patriots' roster.

New England comes into the game with Tom Brady playing at his usual elite level, despite throwing two costly fourth quarter interceptions last week in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

The biggest issue for the Patriots has been their pass defense, which gives up 288.8 yards per game and ranks 28th in the NFL.

On the other side, New York rebounded from a Monday night defeat against the Houston Texans to beat the Indianapolis Colts 35-9 last Sunday in MetLife Stadium.

New York has been impressive in certain games and hideous in others, but has managed to stay afloat even with the season-ending injuries to Darrelle Revis and Santonio Holmes.
