Dan Essien previews the Jets’ defensive line ahead of this week’s season opener.
The Jets defensive line is the strongest position group on the team. Even after the season-ending injuries to Carl Lawson and Vinny Curry they remain the most likely to succeed. Let’s preview the Jets defensive line and project their performance this season.

Joe Belic previews the Jets’ offensive tackles.
After quarterback, left tackle—if your single-caller is right-handed—is arguably the most important position on the field. Properly protecting the QB’s blind-side remains crucial to winning games and keeping him healthy and on his feet. (more…)

Jaguars under 6.5 wins -140
The Jaguars are looking the part of the circus everybody projected the Jets would be with Trevor Lawrence. QB1 will be a stud but the rest of the roster is a mess and I don’t buy that Urban is cut out for the NFL. 5-12 with a loss to Zach Wilson and the Jets on the way.
Chargers over 9.5 wins -110
Better coaching and offensive line play to go with the league’s next #ELITE quarterback, along with a bucket of wins they can grab against the fading Raiders and perpetually average Broncos. The Chargers should get to double digits and be the AFC’s top wild card team.
Vikings Not Make Playoffs -115
A low vaccination rate sounds like many missed games and locker room strife…also Kirk Cousins is not all that good! The window this iteration of the Vikings had has passed.
Jonathan Taylor rushing title +1000
A run heavy offense with a shaky quarterback situation. Taylor has enough juice to rip off consistent big plays and handle an expanded workload. The value and payout here is worth a dart throw.
Austin Ekeler rushing title +10000
Similar to the above…worth a dart throw. If Ekeler can stay healthy, the Chargers offense should one of the league’s best and he’ll have plenty of space to operate with Herbert launching the ball down the field and an improved offensive line.
Calvin Ridley most receiving yards +900
A pass happy offense that needs to replace Julio targets and will regularly be playing catch up. Ridley is a stud and has a strong enough payout where this is worth a shot.
Sean Payton COY +2500
If the Saints remain a playoff team post Brees…a long shot but not inconceivable if Jameis carries over a strong preseason, Payton is a lock for this award.
Zeke Elliott over 11.5 TDs -115
The focal point of their offense, who remains heavily involved in the passing game. In a 17 game season he should get to 13-14 touchdowns.
Daniel Jones under 3,750 passing yards -140
The Bills backup quarterback in 2022.
Rams to win Super Bowl +1600
Almost reached the NFC Championship Game with an injured Jared Goff and beat up roster.
Pretty much every person on earth was more than thrilled when 2020 was finally brought to a close. For most, it has been one of the strangest and most difficult of years imaginable, given the issues brought upon us by the COVID-19 pandemic. Sports teams certainly suffered in 2020, given that fans weren’t allowed in the stadiums for large parts of the season, meaning players no longer had the cheer of the crowd to get them going through tough times, and to vocalise their support when things were going well.
