Stephen Nover's NFL Sunday Destroyer
NY Jets vs. Washington,
11/17/2019 13:00 EDT,
Score: 34 - 17
Point Spread: +1½/-114 NY Jets
The Jets do one thing exceptionally well and that's stop the run. They rank No. 2 in rush defense.
The Redskins have become totally reliant on a ground-and-pound approach under interim coach Bill Callahan. That means heavy duty work for 34-year-old Adrian Peterson. This might be a sound approach - if it were 2012.
Washington is force-feeding not-ready QB Dwayne Haskins. This reminds me of what the Browns experienced during their winless 2017 season when they kept trotting out overmatched DeShone Kizer at QB.
The Jets have the superior skill position players. Sam Darnold is off to a slow start in this his second season. However, he still rates a strong edge on Haskins.
