The Jets came very close to making a huge statement in Green Bay last week, blowing an 18-point lead and falling to the Packers. This week, there will be no doubt the Jets will make a statement. The Jets defensive line will control the line of scrimmage and Geno Smith will play his best game of the season in what will be a two-touchdown victory.
Matt Straub (2-0, 1-1)
Jets 24, Bears 21
The Bears receivers are a concern for the Jets secondary, but the motivation to finish the job after last week's loss to the Packers gets New York the victory on Monday night.
Craig Carroll (1-1, 1-1)
Jets 27, Bears 20
The Jets pride themselves on ground and pound and the Bears can't stop the run, so expect Chris Johnson, Chris Ivory and Bilal Powell to be heavily involved early and often. Jets win unless Geno Smith turns the ball over.
