Fitzpatrick is having a pretty nice season for the Jets (6-5, 5-5-1 ATS). The veteran QB has 2,476 yards and 20 touchdowns while completing 58.5 percent of his passes. While he’s probably not the first QB you’d be looking at to shine in a given week, today’s matchup with the Giants (5-6, 6-4-1 ATS) is very favorable on paper.
No team in the league has allowed more passing yards this season than the Giants, as they have given up 3,466 yards and 20 touchdowns through the pass game this season. They have managed 14 interceptions, which ranks in the top 5, but that doesn’t qualify them as a good secondary. Fitzpatrick is also coming in hot, as he had 277 yards and four touchdowns last week against the Dolphins. He has thrown for over 250 yards five times this season and has two steady targets in Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker.
