25. New York Jets (23) (Play Monday Night)
Never in a million years did any football fan expect the New York Jets of all teams to hand the Dallas Cowboys a loss in Week 6, but this all of a sudden makes Monday’s meeting with the New England Patriots even more exciting.
Over the years, the Jets have put together a few impressive performances against their AFC East rivals, and while the Patriots are expected to win this one for obvious reasons, a win by New York would send a huge message to the rest of the AFC.
Before Sam Darnold missed the beginning of the season due to mono, the Jets were considered a potential sleeper in the AFC to emerge as a surprise contender.
Losing their first four games of 2019 was obviously the last thing New York had in mind at the beginning of the year, but also there is still plenty of time to turn things around since it’s only the end of October.
Taking down the defending champions in the Patriots certainly won’t be easy, but also this Jets team is playing with a ton of confidence at the moment after taking down the Cowboys last week, and would love to see the momentum continue against New England.
