Editor’s note: NESN.com’s Mike Cole, Ricky Doyle and Andre Khatchaturian deliver their NFL picks every Thursday of the season, and here’s who they like in the Baltimore Ravens-New York Jets Week 7 game, with the line from OddsShark.
Baltimore Ravens (3-3) at (PK) New York Jets (1-5), Sunday, 1 p.m.
Mike: Jets. The New York quarterback situation is an absolute joke, but the Ravens’ injury issues — now apparently including quarterback Joe Flacco — are too much to ignore.
Ricky: Ravens. Will Geno Smith provide a spark? Doubt it. More importantly, the Jets’ rushing attack suddenly looks like crap after New York ran Matt Forte into the ground over the first two weeks. The Ravens are dealing with a bunch of injuries, yes, but the Jets are in disarray. For more evidence, just look at New York’s minus-12 turnover differential, worst in the NFL.
Andre: Jets. You know what? I had the Ravens, and I spent a good two minutes destroying Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Jets on “The Spread.” But I’m taking New York. I’m throwing the numbers aside. I just think the Jets bounce back and beat an inconsistent Ravens team. Also, the Jets’ five losses have come against 2015 playoff teams.
