Jets at Miami Dolphins, 4:05 p.m., CBS
Line: Dolphins -8.5 | Whole: 47
It’s not but clear if Sam Darnold will return from a shoulder damage, which may result in the Jets (0-5) beginning Joe Flacco at quarterback and Frank Gore at working again. That’s a becoming tribute to the 2012 season’s Tremendous Bowl, however not a really perfect scenario for a recreation in 2020.

We’re sure he’ll retire earlier than getting the 1,176 dashing yards he must move Walter Payton for second on the N.F.L.’s profession dashing listing — proper?
The Dolphins (2-3), in the meantime, will in all probability win this recreation it doesn’t matter what.

And the unhealthy model might be itching to return out after final week’s stunner towards San Francisco. Choose: Jets +8.5

And the Patriots (2-2) could get Cam Newton again from the Reserve/Covid-19 listing, which is an immeasurable enchancment over Jarrett Stidham or Brian Hoyer. If New England will get cornerback Stephon Gilmore again from the listing as properly, the Patriots can be a lot stronger on each side of the ball. Choose: Patriots
Chicago Bears at Carolina Panthers, 1 p.m., Fox
Line: Panthers -2.5 | Whole: 44
Anticipating the Bears (4-1) to make sense is silly. The group has had prolonged durations of complete incompetence, however has managed to experience a mixture of excellent timing, a weak schedule, erratic manufacturing and luck to top-of-the-line data within the N.F.L. Final week, they escalated issues by utilizing their sorcery to beat a reasonably first rate group (Tampa Bay) in Chicago, however now they’ll be on the street towards the Panthers (3-2), who aren’t excellent however shouldn’t be underestimated, even with working again Christian McCaffrey anticipated to overlook a minimum of yet another recreation.
