When I first heard the point spread for Sunday’s Patriots-Jets game, I thought it was a mistake. The Patriots are favored by 9 1/2 points? The same Pats who lost to the Jets twice last season? The same Patriots who have a defense ranked at the bottom of the NFL barrel? THOSE Patriots? Don’t get me wrong, I think the Pats are capable of beating the Jets at home, but by 9 1/2 points?
Well, the point spread is true. Patriots by 9 1/2 points. What do you think? Are you taking that spread? I’m not!
