Analyzing The New York Jets Vs Minnesota NFL Week 14 Online Betting Lines
The Vikings’ young rookie quarterback has shown flashes of ability this season, but he’s still learning the ropes. With an 8:7 touchdown to interception ratio and 61.1 completion percentage, Bridgewater still has some areas of improvement. He has thrown 1827 yards, 8 TDs & 7 INTs with a 79.0 passer rating. WR Greg Jennings is the leader of the team with 546 yards, & 4 TDs. RB Matt Asiata has been the go to guy in the red zone, scoring 6 rushing TDs along 331 yards.
"I think I’m better at just making quicker decisions," Bridgewater said. "Earlier in the year, I talked about getting rid of the ball faster. That wasn’t the issue. I think I just made quicker decisions, and if I’m able to make quicker decisions I’m able to get the ball out faster."
The Vikings have the third worst passing offense in the NFL and the 13th ranked rushing unit.
The Vikings defense is the 6th best against the pass and the 24th rank stopping the run. They have forced 15 turnovers this season, rank 24th in the NFL.

The NY Jets are 2-10 on the season and Ryan’s days are numbered. Last week the Jets lost to the Miami Dolphins 16-13 on Monday Night Football with their QB Geno Smith throwing for only 65 yards in the game.
"I’m embarrassed for myself, absolutely," Ryan said Tuesday. "It’s an embarrassment. It’s definitely embarrassing to me. I feel like I’ve let my owner down. I’ve let our fan base down.
"The year hasn’t gone anywhere close to what we were thinking. I’m going to focus on beating Minnesota. I’m not worried about anything else but that."
The Jets anemic offense has averaged just 15.8 points and 311.5 yards per game and led by, depending on the week, QB Geno Smith who has completed 57.4 percent of his passes with seven touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Chris Ivory as rushed for 641 yards and five touchdowns and Eric Decker has 49 catches.
The Jets defense is allowing 26.6 points and 322 yards per game and they are minus 12 in turnover ratio.
The Vikings are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 home games, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 14, 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a losing road record, 8-1 ATS in their last 9 games in December, 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game, but 3-10-1 ATS in their last 14 games as a favorite.
