The Patriots are in a rare position as underdogs this week, heading into their Sunday night game with the New York Jets.

New York is favored by one point and the over-under is set at 47.5.

The two teams enter the game in a three-way tie for first place atop the AFC East, each with records of 5-3. The Jets are playing well of late, having won three straight after losing to the Pats at Gillette Stadium on October 9. New York's latest win came at the hands of the third team in contention for the division, the Buffalo Bills.

A Patriots win would put them on the inside track to claiming the division as they would sweep the season series with New York.
