We have a chance to go play a really good team at home that won the Super Bowl last year. And if you can't get excited about that, if you can't find a way to get up for that game, then there's something wrong with you. That certainly sounds good, but the Jets have done little to inspire any visions of an upset.
Honestly, in the same way it’s hard to conjure a memory of a time when you walked into a grocery store without a mask, harder still to remember standing cheek-to-jowl inside a crowded stadium, it is almost impossible to recall a time when pro football in this town wasn’t utterly deplorable. Years ago, I had to often drive through a town with a paper mill dominating its downtown. The smell was so bad at first you thought you would pass out.
The focus thus far for Sunday’s game between the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium has been the massive point spread, which has the Jets 20-point underdogs on BetMGM’s New Jersey betting app. But the more interesting number for this expected mismatch of the season is the moneyline. BetMGM lists the 0-7 Jets as a +1300 underdog, with the 6-1 Chiefs at -3334.
