Patriots vs. Jets 2013 odds: New England getting respect on road

Tom Szczerbowski

Tom Brady and the boys are hoping to keep their stranglehold on the AFC East with another divisional win.

The New England Patriots are hitting the road this Sunday to take on the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium marking the second and final regular season encounter between the two this year.

According to, the Patriots are favored by 3.5 points with the over/under at 43.5. In the first meeting between the two sides back in Week 2, it was Bill Belichick's team coming out on top with a 13-point victory.

New England is 5-1 because of a surprisingly good defense and clutch play out of Tom Brady. The Patriots have sustained all kind of injuries with tight end Rob Gronkowski out every game this year and wide receiver Danny Amendola in and out of the lineup.

New York has stunned most folks by being 3-3 despite a mass exodus of talent in the offseason that saw Darrelle Revis get traded, and LaRon Landry, Jeremiah Bell, Mike DeVito and others leaving via free agency.
