The NY Jets are preparing for what very well might be their most important game in close to a decade. They will travel to Foxborough in Week 11 to take on the New England Patriots in a game that could propel the Jets to first in the AFC East.

In fact, if other results go their way, there's a chance the Jets could enter Week 12 as the No. 1 seed in the entire AFC. On the other hand, a loss to the Patriots would likely send the Jets to last place in their division.

To say there's a lot at stake in Sunday's game would be an understatement. The Jets are looking to exorcise their final demon and climb to 7-3 on the season while the Patriots are looking to prove that the so-called "old guard" hasn't gone anywhere.

Who will emerge victorious in this crucial AFC East battle? Let's take a look at the latest betting odds.

NY Jets vs. Patriots Prediction Week 11

These two teams met just a few weeks ago in a 22-17 Patriots victory. The Jets' defense played lights out, but an abysmal game from quarterback Zach Wilson ultimately cost Gang Green the victory.

Wilson bounced back against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9 and was part of the reason the Jets were able to upset their division rivals. If the Jets are going to win this Sunday, they're going to need more of that from Wilson.

Bill Belichick has made a career out of wreaking havoc on young quarterbacks and Wilson's struggles against the Patriots throughout his career are proof of that. Wilson is going to need to exorcize his demons and prove his worth on Sunday.

The Jets have exceeded expectations this season, but the Patriots have bounced back after a difficult start to the season. Three of their last four wins (the fourth was against the Jets) have come by 23 points or more.

If Wilson plays well, the Jets should win this game. Unfortunately, it's hard to have much confidence in that given his inconsistencies this season.
