Jets vs. Patriots injury report, odds, spread: Surely last game for Cam Newton with Pats; final game with Jets for Adam Gase, likely Sam Darnold


The only thing at stake in #Sunday’s #New #York #Jets at #New #England #Patriots matchup to conclude the regular season is perhaps better draft position for the #Patriots if they lose. #Cam #Newton is expected to remain the team’s starting quarterback #Sunday, but #SportsLine oddsmakers believe it’s likely his last game with the franchise. #Meanwhile, #Sunday absolutely will the last game as #Jets coach for #Adam #Gase and it could also be the finale with the team for quarterback #Sam #Darnold. The #Patriots are 3-point favorites on the #William #Hill #Sportsbook NFL odds.

#New #England’s one-year experiment with #Newton clearly hasn’t worked as the former NFL MVP is among the worst-rated QBs in the league at 78.9. #Newton has just five touchdown passes to 10 picks, and the #Patriots as a team have eight touchdown passes. #No NFL club has had fewer than 10 TD passes since the 2012 #Chiefs, who finished with eight behind #Matt #Cassel and #Brady #Quinn.

#Newton, who does have 12 TD runs, was pulled from #Monday night’s ugly 38-9 home loss to #Buffalo after going 5-for-10 for all of 34 yards, with #Coach #Bill #Belichick saying on #Tuesday “I would imagine” that #Newton would start here. #Young backup #Jarrett #Stidham was no better in completing 4-for-11 for 44 yards and a passer rating of 49.1 vs. the #Bills – and he hasn’t been good at all in limited 2020 action.

#Clearly, #New #England will have to address quarterback this offseason and the #Pats would pick #No. 15 overall in the first round of the 2021 draft as things stand. A loss could move them up a few spots.

#As for the #Jets, there’s no need to tank as they are locked into the #No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 draft thanks to back-to-back wins and the #Jacksonville #Jaguars out-tanking them.

#It has been reported nearly everywhere that the #Jets have told #Gase that he will be fired either right after this game or no later than #Monday – that’s no surprise, and #SportsLine will have odds on the next #Jets coach next week.

#Now that the #Jets can’t draft #Trevor #Lawrence, however, might they decide to give #Darnold another shot in 2021? The #Jets could draft stellar offensive tackle prospect #Penei #Sewell of #Oregon at #No. 2 overall or a top receiver like LSU’s #Ja’#Marr #Chase instead of quarterbacks such as BYU’s #Zach #Wilson or #Ohio #State’s #Justin #Fields.

#Most around the NFL still believe #New #York will take a QB at #No. 2, however. #Darnold has started 36 NFL games and his career passer rating is 78.4, which ranks 39th out of 40 qualifying quarterbacks since 2018.

#Via #SportsLine oddsmakers: #Who will be the #Patriots’ #Week 1 starting QB in 2021?

  • #Other current NFL quarterback -250
  • 2021 draft pick: +400
  • #Jarrett #Stidham +750
  • #Cam #Newton +1200
