Randall the Handle's Week 14 NFL picks
By Randall the Handle, Special to QMI Agency
Jets (5-7) at Jaguars (2-10)
LINE: NY JETS BY 2.5
Mark Sanchez just won't go away. The Jets quarterback looked like he was finally doomed to ride the bench for awhile after last week's horrendous showing against the Cardinals. But coach Rex Ryan hasn't given up on his QB, at least for this week. Perhaps Ryan realizes that Jacksonville's defence is not Arizona's. The Jaguars rank 31st in yards allowed, 30th in points allowed and 31st in first downs allowed. There's a reason this lousy Jets squad is favoured here. It doesn't help that Jacksonville is 1-5 at home. Prior to win over the lowly Titans, the Jags were outscored by a combined 153-44 in five losses here. Sanchez lives for another day.
