Jets vs. Rams Week 15 Prediction
The Rams will look to avoid having a massive letdown on Sunday when they host the winless Jets at 4:05 p.m. ET. Is 17 points too much to lay with the home side or will Jared Goff and Co. roll?
349 New York Jets (+17) at 350 Los Angeles Rams (-17); o/u 43.5
4:05 p.m. ET, Sunday, December 20, 2020
Venue: SoFi Stadium, Inglewood, CA
New York Jets DFS Spin
Sam Darnold completed 14-of-26 passes for 132 yards in New York's 40-3 Week 14 loss to the Seahawks. Nothing to see here. Darnold, much like Carson Wentz, is completely broken and showing no signs of positive development in only his third year in the league thanks to Adam Gase and New York's coaching staff. The Jets' field goal actually occurred on the team's opening series, getting out-scored 40-0 for the rest of the game. Meanwhile Seattle's secondary teed off for three sacks and constant pressure as Darnold failed to lend any amount of confidence under center. The Rams' defense will arguably be the No. 1 overall D/ST in Week 15 opposite this offense.
Los Angeles Rams DFS Spin
Jared Goff completed 16-of-25 passes for 137 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the Rams' 24-3, Week 14 win over the Patriots, adding a rushing touchdown. It was a highly unimpressive performance, one where the Patriots weren't offering much respect to Goff's play fakes. Thankfully for Goff, the Pats' slow defense simply could not stop Cam Akers, who dominated the game and took pressure off his quarterback. Goff's interception came on a low throw that Myles Bryant managed to wrestle away from Robert Woods. As is the case in most "bad Goff" games, he was lucky to escape with only one turnover. His two-yard strike to Cooper Kupp in the end zone seemed to be lightly tipped. Goff's rushing score came on a fourth down quarterback sneak. Whereas Goff was always unlikely to perform well against Bill Belichick, he has a much more inviting Week 15 date in the Jets. Although he has only two passing scores over his past three starts, Goff has partly compensated with two rushing touchdowns.
