    Jets 4.5 Point Underdogs Against Texans

    posted by: Site Admin | 0 comments | Jets Regular Season

    The new era in the history of the New York Jets will begin on Sunday when rookie head coach Rex Ryan and rookie QB Mark Sanchez will lead the team against the Houston Texans. The Gang Green are 4.5 to 5 point underdogs, facing a team that's expected to make the playoffs for the first time in their history. Ryan is one of nine rookie head coaches this season. Mark Sanchez will become the first Jets rookie quarterback to start since Matt Robinson started on November 13, 1977 against the Seattle Seahawks. The New York Jets have gone 491 consecutive games without starting a rookie quarterback, the longest current streak in the NFL. Robinson started just one game in 1977 - a 20-23 loss to the Steelers where he went 7 of 19 for 80 yards, 1 TD, 3 INT.
