Patriots vs. Jets Week 7 highlights, analysis and injury updates

The latest chapter in the rivalry between the New England Patriots and New York Jets will be written Monday night at MetLife Stadium, where the defending Super Bowl champions will try to improve their unbeaten record to 7-0.

The Patriots enter Week 7 with a 6-0 record for the first time since 2015, and oddsmakers like their chances of beating the Jets for the second time this season. New England is a 9.5-point favorite just a few hours before kickoff.

The Jets have lost seven consecutive games to the Patriots, which ties their worst losing skid to New England in franchise history. New York, however, has starting quarterback Sam Darnold and star linebacker C.J. Mosley back in the lineup together for the first time since Week 1. Both players did not participate in the Jets' Week 3 loss to the Patriots at Gillette Stadium. Darnold was battling mono and Mosley had a groin injury.

Will the Patriots extend their win streak against the Jets to eight games, or will New York overcome its nemesis and earn a potential season-defining victory? Keep it right here for all of the latest highlights, score updates, injuries and quick analysis from Patriots vs. Jets.

FINAL, 33-0 Patriots

Third quarter, 7:41, 26-0 Patriots: Oh no. The Jets' misery continues as Sam Darnold bats the ball out of the end zone for a safety.

Third quarter, 11:00, 24-0 Patriots: Stephon Gilmore has picked off Sam Darnold. The Jets quarterback now has thrown three interceptions tonight.

Halftime, 24-0 Patriots

First quarter, 6:13, 7-0 Patriots: The Patriots cap a 16-play, 78-yard drive that lasted almost nine minutes with a 3-yard touchdown run by Sony Michel. It's his fourth rushing score of the season. 

The Jets pass rush failed to get to Brady on that drive.

First quarter, 7:30, 0-0: Benjamin Watson took his first target off his facemask, but he made a 10-yard reception later in the Pats' opening drive on a 3rd-and-5 to move them into the red zone. It was his first reception as a Patriot since 2005.

NFL odds Week 12: Opening spread for Patriots vs. Cowboys game revealed

NFL odds Week 12: Opening spread for Patriots vs. Cowboys game revealed

The New England Patriots are favored over the Dallas Cowboys by almost a touchdown in the opening betting lines for Week 12 of the 2019 NFL season.

The early spreads for every Week 12 game were released by the Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas on Sunday evening, and the Patriots are 6.5-point favorites at home versus Dallas.

Here are all the lines for next week's matchups:

The Patriots have made sports bettors a lot of money this season. The defending Super Bowl champions are 7-3 against the spread (9-1 head-to-head) after Sunday's 17-10 win over the Philadelphia Eagles on the road. The Pats have a 1-game lead over the Baltimore Ravens in the race for the AFC's No. 1 seed.

The Cowboys are coming off a 35-27 Week 11 win over the Detroit Lions that moved them ahead of the Eagles for first place in the NFC East division.

New England has won five of its last six meetings with Dallas, including a 4-2 against-the-spread record over that span.

Kickoff for Sunday's game between the Patriots and Cowboys is scheduled for 4:25 p.m. ET at Gillette Stadium.

Kyle Van Noy finds more Patriots bulletin board material after beating Eagles

Kyle Van Noy finds more Patriots bulletin board material after beating Eagles

Kyle Van Noy keeps all of his receipts.

The Patriots defense got back on track Sunday in Philadelphia, limiting the Eagles to 10 points to help New England escape with a 17-10 win and improve to 9-1.

Van Noy contributed to that effort with five tackles, a sack, a tackle-for-loss and two quarterback hits. After the game, he continued his time-honored tradition of singling out his team's haters.

So, who is "good ole Tony"? Our guess is Tony Massarotti, considering Van Noy's history of calling out 98.5 The Sports Hub's "Felger & Mazz" radio show. Massarotti also has referenced the fact that this Patriots defense doesn't have traditional "stars" like other units, which makes their incredible success through 10 games all that more impressive.

It's also possible Van Noy is referencing CBS color analyst Tony Romo, who mentioned on Sunday's broadcast that New England's defense doesn't have many household names. You could argue that's a compliment: The Patriots defense is great because the entire unit is talented and works very well together.

You also can't argue with the results: New England is allowing just 10.8 points per game this season and still has a chance to break the 2000 Baltimore Ravens' record for fewest points allowed in a season (165).

But if the haters help Van Noy and his teammates play this well, he'd tell you to keep the digs (real or perceived) coming.
