2013 Week 7 5* NFL Pick: Patriots -3.5 4* Chargers -7.5 #nflonedotcom

[Patriots/JETS] Although the Patriots are 12-2 ATS in their last 12 matchups in New York, injuries have the public very guarded about today’s game. Having suffered injuries to Mayo, Amendola and Talib, the Patriots will look to parlay the Jets loss to Steelers last week on the back of its rushing offense averaging 120.5 yards per game. Relying on the big play for victories, Smith, 74.7 rating, who has already been sacked by 21 times will struggle to find open Jets receivers.

[Chargers/JAGUARS] San Diego, 4-1-1 ATS in their last six Road games, has won its last two matchups with Jacksonville by a combined 76-27 score. QB Rivers, 108.7 rating, arrives tied for second in the league with 14 TD passes and third with 1,847 yards. On the other hand, The Jaguars, 2-8 ATS in their last ten Home games, became the first team since the 1984 Houston Oilers to lose each of their first six games by 10 or more points. Averaging only 60.5 rushing yards per game, the Jaguars simply do not have the firepower to keep up with the Bolts.

  1. LOSER – Patriots 27, JETS 30 (OT) – East Rutherford, NJ (SportsNetwork.com) – Nick Folk made the most of a second chance at a game-winning field goal, drilling a 42-yarder with 5:07 remaining in overtime to give the New York Jets a 30-27 victory over the New England Patriots in a thriller from MetLife Stadium. Folk at first pulled a 56-yard try wide to the left, but was given a reprieve when Patriots defensive lineman Chris Jones was flagged for unsportsmanlike conduct for pushing a teammate into a Jets’ blocker on the attempt. The penalty moved the ball inside the New England 25, and Folk was true on the re-do to complete New York’s comeback from a 21-10 halftime deficit. Antonio Allen ignited the Jets’ second-half rally with a 23-yard interception return touchdown of Tom Brady on the second play of the third quarter, while Geno Smith threw for a touchdown and ran for another to help New York (4-3) close within a game of the AFC-East leading Patriots (5-2) in the division race. Smith shook off a first-quarter interception that Logan Ryan ran back 79 yards for a touchdown to complete 17-of-33 passes for 233 yards. Chris Ivory contributed 104 yards on a heavy 34-carry workload to the win, with Jeremy Kerley amassing 97 yards on eight catches and hauling in Smith’s TD strike. The Jets’ defense did its part as well, limiting New England to just two Stephen Gostkowski field goals after halftime and continually frustrating Brady throughout the afternoon. Brady ended an off-target 22-of-46 for 228 yards without a touchdown despite the return of tight end Rob Gronkowski to the offense. Gronkowski did make a large impact in his first game back from offseason back and forearm surgeries, compiling 114 yards on eight receptions in the loss.

  2. WINNER – Chargers 24, JAGUARS 6 – Jacksonville, FL (SportsNetwork.com) – Philip Rivers completed 22-of-26 passes for 285 yards and a touchdown to lead the San Diego Chargers to a 24-6 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Ryan Mathews carried the ball 21 times for 110 yards and a touchdown and Eddie Royal caught four passes for 69 yards and a score for the Chargers (4-3), winners in two straight and three of their last four overall. San Diego dominated the time of possession 37:30-22:30. In their four wins this season, the Chargers hold a 150:21-89:39 advantage in time of possession. Chad Henne completed 23-of-36 passes for 318 yards and an interception and Mike Brown caught five passes for 120 yards for the Jaguars (0-7), who failed to score a touchdown for the fourth time this season.
