Patriots vs Jets NFL Week 12 AFC East Rivalry Betting Odds

NFL Week 12 Thanksgiving Thursday wraps up as the New England Patriots and New York Jets re-fire their decades old AFC East rivalry. Even though the Jets have been grounded for most of the season, while the Patriots have been soaring high, this contest is still must see TV. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 PM ET on November 22, 2012, from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ. Gives us New England in this one!

New England Patriots: AFC East leaders on a huge roll

Despite an uncharacteristically slow start to the 2012 NFL season, QB Tom Brady and Patriots have reeled off four straight wins and they have opened up a three game lead in the AFC East playoff race. New England has averaged 42.5 points per game during their winning streak Рincluding their dismantling of the Indianapolis Colts by a 59-24 count in Week 11. Patriots All Pro TE Rob Gronkowski will miss this contest (broken left forearm) but New England is well known for having one of the deepest rosters in the league.

New York Jets: Gang Green dog and pony show hits prime time in Jersey

To say it has been a long season for the New York Jets would be a major understatement. Gang Green has been in turmoil for most of the year and their 4-6 record is almost flattering considering how poorly they have played. The Jets did manage to end a three game losing streak (1-5 in their last six) as they rolled the Rams 27-13 in St. Louis during Week 11 NFL action. We actually like the fact that New York was able to come up with a win last weekend as it provides a little added value to betting lines for this AFC East battle.
