Six weeks into the NFL season, and we still don't know who's truly among the league's best.
It would appear that oddsmakers are still a little unsure, too, given Week 7's lines. One thing we do know for sure, though. The Patriots are expected to stop screwing around and take it to the Jets this week in a big AFC East matchup.
Here are this week's lines courtesy of Bovada.
Tennessee at Buffalo (-3)
The Bills are coming off of a big win over the Cardinals, while the porous Titans defense will look to slow Buffalo's inconsistent offense.
Arizona at Minnesota (-7)
This is a matchup of two upstart teams, and it will give the Vikings another chance to prove that they are for real, with the teeth of their NFC North schedule still down the road.
Cleveland at Indianapolis (-3)
The Colts got smoked by the Jets last week, and they return home to square off with the Browns, who actually won an NFL game last week.
Baltimore at Houston (-7)

How there hasn’t been more of a run on Tim Tebow Halloween costumes is crazy. You would think Tebow bros everywhere would be all over this costume. It’s simple, relatively cheap and allows them to pay homage to their godly hero. There are a few we could scrounge up but this post is a call to action more than anything.When you’re out at Halloween parties or bars and you see...
PAY FOR PRAY
The man responsible for launching the 'Tebowing' craze will now be the only one who is able to profit from it now as well.
Jonathan Grimes made a name for himself in the preseason for the Texans before being placed on the practice squad. With all the Jets injuries at running back, Jets RB Jonathan Grimes will be active for Sunday’s game against the Patriots. Both Bilal Powell (shoulder) and Joe McKnight (ankle) will be inactive. Grimes, is an undrafted rookie out of William & Mary. He projects...
Rex Ryan says it's ''a possibility'' do-it-all backup quarterback Tim Tebow could see time at running back for the New York Jets on Sunday against the New England Patriots.
The Jets are a bit short-handed at the position with backups Joe McKnight (sprained left ankle) and Bilal Powell (separated right shoulder) likely out for the game. That leaves only starter...
Jets May Use Tim Tebow At RB This Sunday -
Tim Tebow’s role may expand to include snaps at running back this week when the Jets visit New England in a crucial AFC East clash. With backup tailbacks Bilal Powell (dislocated shoulder) and Joe McKnight (ankle) banged up, Rex Ryan was asked if he might use Tebow to spell Shonn Greene. “That’s a possibility,” Ryan said (via the...
New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan indicated that it’s ” a possibility that Tim Tebow could get some snaps at running back this week with both Bilal Powell and Joe McKnight banged up.As athletic as Tebow is, I can’t imagine him being very effective with how poorly the Jets’ offensive line has been playing.
When Darrelle Revis went down for the season.. fine I'll admit it. I was so excited. Listen, I never root for injuries, but when one as significant as that happens, to the team I hate the most? Yeah, I was excited! However, it hasn't really had the kind of impact I was hoping for. Have the Jets gone in the tubes? Not really, not yet anyway. If the Patriots beat them this...
As quarterbacks, you could probably count the similarities between Tim Tebow and Tom Brady on one hand. One thing the players do share is that they both played under Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels.
That's why New York Jets coach Rex Ryan had Tebow mimicking Brady in the Jets' practice week leading up to Sunday's matchup against the Patriots.
Following in the footsteps of Robert Griffin III (RG3™), Tim Tebow has legally protected his own self-interests.
According to ESPNNewYork.com, the Jets’ backup quarterback officially trademarked ‘Tebowing’ — his globally-renowned (and oft-mocked) endzone celebration in which he assumes a prayer-like pose.
Tebow filed the necessary paperwork back in April, and finally acquired...
A week ago, no one would have thought that Week 7's Pats/Jets match-up would feature teams with identical records. With a four-way tie for 1st place in the AFC East, how big is today's game and how do you see it playing out?
Raj: I believe this is a must-win for New England unless they wanna grab the either two wild card spots and be content with playing on...
1. Contain Rob Gronkowski
- Gronkowski absolutely murdered the Jets last year, highlighted by his posting eight catches for 113 yards and two scores in their second meeting, a 37-16 Patriots blowout victory. If the Jets want to win, they’re going to have to find a way to contain Gronk. That probably means a heavy dose of LaRon Landry and Antonio Allen covering Gronkowski, if the...

Week 6 Record: 2-1 (Respectable!)
Season Record: 7-10-1 (Getting there!)
Underdogs are killing it in the NFL this season. It started early and most chalked it up to the usual early-season parity and also those weirdos who were pretending to be refs. But funny thing is that it’s kept up. Last week, underdogs were 12-2. The only two favorites that covered? Your New York Football...
