Saints at Jets: odds, predictions and preview


Rex Ryan and Rob Ryan go head-to-head on Sunday in a battle of brotherly love, when the New Orleans Saints come to East Rutherford to take on the New York Jets. The Jets head coach and Saints defensive coordinator will both be looking to find a way to get the win and earn bragging rights at home, but this has the makings of a lopsided affair.

The Jets are the Dr. Jekyll/Mr. Hyde of the NFL, thanks largely in part to rookie quarterback Geno Smith.

The team has plenty of issues, but their up and down performances leave us wondering what Jets team we should expect week in and week out. When the Jets are good, they are fairly decent. When they are bad, they’re awful.

As for the Saints, they are always good and Rob Ryan’s impact on the team’s defense has made a huge impact.

The Saints are a 5.5-point favorite in this week’s game, and we’d feel comfortable taking them to cover — especially after seeing what the Cincinnati Bengals were able to do to the Jets just last week.
