This Saturday the 19th of December 2015 will be one of the few times this 2015 NFL Regular season that there is a game scheduled for Saturday night as the AFC-East 8-5 Jets of New York play at the NFC-North 4-9 Cowboys of Dallas with the game being played at the AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas with the kick-off scheduled for 8:30 PM ET and seen on NFL TV.
For those that Bet on NFL football the early odds has the New York Jets favored at -3-105 with the Over/under at 42 and -155 on the Money Line, while the Cowboys are the underdogs at +3 -115 and +135 on the ML with Cowboys riding the rollercoaster to date, and slime chances for the playoffs. But for the Jets they find themselves with a good possibility of making the playoffs since they have won 3 consecutive games as of late.
If you are a fan of the 8-5 Jets of New York you are happy since your team has recently been playing well, especially after the beat the Titans of Tennessee this past Sunday 30-8 and now seek to continue winning to make it 4 consecutive games when the play the Cowboys on Saturday night.
The New York Jets defense was incredible in the Titans game as they limited them to just 291 total offensive yards in that game. Especially they stood out against the Titans running as they only allowed them some 26 yards rushing in that game. Plus the Titans QB M. Mariota struggled in the game as he was unable to pass for a TD, was intercepted on 1 occasion and sacked some 5 time losing a total of 47 yards on the sacks.
So to date in 2015 the Jets defense ranks 8th in the league as they allow some 19.8 points each game and in total defense allow some 324 yards which ranks 5th. The Jets in their last 2 games at Dallas dating back to 1999 they have won 1 game and lost 1 game.
Offensively the Jets will depend heavy on RB C. Ivory who against the Titans rushed for 102 yards as his game came back to life in that game. The Jets presently are ranked 10th in rushing offense totaling 118 yards each game. Thus RB Ivory can complement the Jets game via the airways that recently has seen good play from QB R. Fitzpatrick especially in Week 14 or last week, as he completed 21 of his 36 passing attempts for 3 touchdowns and 264 yards via the air. To date the Jets have averaged some 372 yards passing in each game in 2015.
But if you prefer the 4-9 Cowboys of Dallas, your team took a bath in their road loss with the Cowboys this past Sunday 28-7, and that gives them a sure losing season for 2015 and slight chance of earning a NFC East Title.
The Cowboys are close to elimination for the playoffs in the NFC East, and to get a win in this game they will need more way to gain offensive yardage in this game as the face the hot Jets team on Sunday in Arlington.
The Cowboys on Sunday against the Packers were only able to make into the red zone on 2 occasions, and only had 272 yards of offense. QB M. Cassel struggled passing as he had a mere 112 yards passing without a TD on his 13 completions on 29 attempts. In this game with the Jets, QB Cassel will be facing a Jets defense that has only allowed opponents some 79 yards rushing in each game to date, and that is an indication that QB Cassel will be under greater pressure in this game.
The Cowboys are hoping they have a much better performance from WR D. Bryant in this game that he had against the Packers since he caught 4 passes of 9 thrown to him for just 45 yards and 1 TD.
The online betting prediction for this NFC game in Week 15 is that the Giants prove to be too much on both sides of the ball as they cover the spread and beat the Cowboys 21-10 on Saturday night NFL.
