The Jets roll into Baltimore coming off a brutal loss to the Bills. Geno Smith played like Buttfumble Sanchez with a sprinkling of Blaine Gabbert and a dash of Wheeden. Hold on, let me remind you of why I misspelled that name...Yeah, that's how bad Geno Smith was.
But fear not, the Ravens aren't playing so great themselves, and in this game, he won't have to do much to get a win because the Jets defense can certainly win the game for them. The Ravens offensive line is putrid, with center Gino Gradkowski struggling to get off a clean snap in the clutch against the Bears, and otherwise having trouble blocking anyone. All this means is that Snacks Harrison, Sheldon Richardson, and Muhammad Wilkerson should have lots of fun knocking Joe Flacco back into the dark days before he made $20 million a year.
As for the rest of the Ravens offense, they are almost as bad as the Jets. Neither Ray Rice nor Bernard Pierce will be able to get anything going against the best run defense in the league. This means that Joe Flacco will have to pass all day, to the reliable Torrey Smith, and the disastrous Tandon Doss. There's a 50% chance that bad Joe Flacco shows up in this game, and that just means that the Jets will create a ton of turnovers all game.
While I don't think that the Jets offense will have a great game, especially against the Ravens defense which is pretty good against the run. But of course, the Jets defense is the better of the two and that should be the key in today's game.
Either way, do not watch this game. It's going to be a disgusting show of offense that sets the league back to 1908.
Jets (+4) over RAVENS.
