The 1-3 Atlanta Falcons host the 2-2 New York Jets on Monday Night. The Jets have beaten teams that have combined to go 2-7 so far this season so they aren't exactly world beaters. The Falcons have lost three games against teams that have combined to go 11-1 in the early season. The Falcons are a 10 point favorite in this game, which seems a little rich too me considering our red zone woes and penchant for injury. I don't really frequent ESPN but I gurgled the game and some predictions popped up so I bit and clicked on the link. ESPN has 13 "experts" picking the game between the Jets and the Falcons and all 13 of them picked the Falcons. Every single one of them! Do they have faith in the Falcons or do they just not like the Jets? From reading the comments from these "experts" it seems a little bit of both but probably the fact that they have less faith in the Jets. Like the Falcons, the Jets also have some injuries and with the Falcons backed into a corner, the boys from Bristol like the Falcons in this one. Does it worry you that all 13 have picked the Falcons and none are siding with the Jets?
