The San Francisco 49ers get ready to take on the New York Jets in what should be an interesting game. In the last meeting between these two teams on December 11, 2016, the Jets beat the 49ers by a 23-17 score.
New York Jets grounded in opener
In their last game, the New York Jets struggled against the Buffalo Bills. Sam Darnold threw for 215 yards, a touchdown, and an interception while Frank Gore carried the ball six times for 24 yards. It was Jamison Crowder who had a big day for the Jets at the wide receiver position. He caught seven passes for 150 yards and a touchdown, averaging 16.4 yards per reception.
Even still, the Jets got into a 14-0 hole early, and were never able to climb out of it. Although they outscored Buffalo 7-0 in the third quarter, it was not enough to overcome the deficit.

Free Betting Pick
San Francisco would be the logical pick for this game at -7. With a top-notch defense led by Nick Bosa, and an offensive attack that on the tight end in running game, this could work in San Francisco’s favor. They are a balanced team that can make plays on both sides of the football. New York does not have that.
Although Crowder had a 100-plus receiving yard game last week, it would be tough to ask him to repeat that again. Even still, this game will fall on the shoulders of Sam Darnold, which is a lot to ask given the defense he is facing. New York should be able to move the ball, but they could struggle in the red zone.
