NFL Best Bets Against the Spread – 2018 Week Three

Jake Benaquisto with his best bets for week 3 of the NFL season

I went 2-3 last week and got burned by Ryan Fitzpatrick. What a cruel world. Here are some week two observations:

  1. I got to suffer through not one, but two horrible, gut-wrenching losses by the Jets this past week. These losses will come with a 21 year old rookie quarterback, but they still hurt.
  2. It’s early, but Jacksonville looks to me like the best team in the AFC. Well-coached, defense is legit, and Blake Bortles can make plays when they need him to. I’m still not sure I’d bet on this team to beat New England in the playoffs, but they pretty much have the AFC South already locked up.
  3. Chicago’s defense is really, really good. The thought of this team drafting Pat Mahomes instead of Mitch Trubisky would give me depression if I was a Bears fan.

New York Jets Loss Vent – Week 3 vs. Cleveland Edition

Joe Caporoso with a loss vent on the New York Jets getting beat by the Cleveland Browns

EVERYBODY PANIC! Darnold is a bust. Todd Bowles must go. Jeremy Bates is a younger Brian Schottenheimer. Leonard Williams is overrated. Robby Anderson must be traded. If only Josh McCown or Teddy Bridgewater were under center, the Jets would be a glorious 3-0 rolling towards a AFC East title! The New York Jets fanbase is currently in a fit of hysteria following a Thursday night loss to the Baker Browns. What is one to do from here outside of folding up the franchise or moving them to London to take Wembley Stadium over under Woody Johnson’s watchful eye?

Initial Reaction – Jets Become *That* Team, Lose To Baker Led Browns

Joe Caporoso with initial reaction to the New York Jets 21-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns

The New York Jets ended the Cleveland Browns win drought tonight by blowing a 14-0 lead on the road to rookie quarterback Baker Mayfield (it shouldn’t be a surprise to anybody that he looked good), who relieved Tyrod  Taylor after a second quarter injury. Like many Thursday Night games, this was an ugly, sloppy one at times but the Jets looked gassed, unprepared and lackadaisical after taking their early lead. This season is about Sam Darnold’s development more than anything else and tonight was a rough patch in that learning curve as he struggled throughout the game, while also concurrently being let down by his supporting cast. The defense started fast but faded down the stretch and was bullied with the game on the line in the fourth quarter.
