Both the New England Patriots (6-3) and the NY Jets (6-3), sitting on the same season record, have the chance to snatch the top spot in the AFC East standings and both NFL franchises are coming out on the field Thursday following wins in last week's NFL games - the NY Jets whipped St. Louis 3-47 and the Patriots scored a major division victory against the Bills for 10-20 on the board. And the Thursday NFL Week 11 opener will decide to outcome of the AFC East standings, according to many football experts. Add to this the bad blood already boiling between the two teams, following the videotaping scandal last year and you've got yourself a damn good football game.

For the best odds we visited the popular online sportsbook Bookmaker, where the New England Patriots are listed as the favorite NFL team to win the Week 11 game, sitting on odds -165 to win on Thursday. Meanwhile the New York Jets are small underdog with odds +145 on a victory tomorrow. At the sportsbook the NY Jets vs. New England Patriots point spread is currently posted at -3 points chalk the Patriots with the total expected by the odds makers at 42 points. For the stats-lovers, the betting trends show that the NY Jets are 4-2 against the spread in their last 6 games and 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games on the road. And although New England is 7-2 against the spread in their last 9 games when playing NY Jets, the Patriots are 3-9 against the spread in their last 12 games when playing at home against the Jets. Also notable is the fact that the total has gone UNDER in 4 of the NY Jets last 5 games when playing on the road against New England.

 As far as injuries are concerned, the Patriots have plenty as usual, but the most noticeable will be the absence of  Pro Bowl linebacker Adalius Thomas, who injuries his arm during the game against the Bill. Although not confirmed officially by New England, reports in the media claim that Adalius Thomas has indeed broken his arm, obviously a season-ending injury. Patriots running back Laurence Maroney and safety Rodney Harrison are also out, but Green-Ellis is doing a good job in replacing Maroney so far. The injury report for the NY Jets was not available at press time.
