Swapping Zach Wilson for Tim Boyle didn't seem to make much of a difference for the Jets, who fell in an AFC East matchup to the Miami Dolphins 32-13 last week. Boyle went 27-of-38 for 179 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. The defense picked off Tua Tagovailoa twice.
The Falcons, on the other hand, got back in the win column last week by beating the New Orleans Saints 24-15. Desmond Ridder threw two interceptions, but Bijan Robinson had 123 total yards and two touchdowns.
Will the Jets defense get enough help from their offense to pull off a win? Or will the Falcons have enough momentum to snag another home victory?

Lorenzo Reyes: Falcons 19, Jets 13
It’s hard to back this Jets team with its offensive production being what it is. Tim Boyle cannot provide a spark and the only way New York wins is if it gets scores from its defense and/or special teams.
Tyler Dragon: Falcons 16, Jets 10
The Jets offense is hard to watch no matter which non-Aaron Rodgers quarterback is playing. New York’s atrocious offense has a negative effect on its defense. Falcons running back Bijan Robinson produced 123 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns in Week 12. As long as Atlanta takes care of the football, they should come away victorious.
Safid Deen: Falcons 20, Jets 13
You never know which Falcons team will show up on a given week, but you know which Jets offense will.
Victoria Hernandez: Falcons 20, Jets 12
The Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak last week despite two picks from Desmond Ridder as Bijan Robinson finally seemed to get things going. Atlanta is far from a complete team, but they at least got some momentum back. The Jets are as unbalanced as ever. The defense plays scrappy, but Tim Boyle didn’t fare much better than Zach Wilson in his first start.
Jordan Mendoza: Falcons 16, Jets 13
Two offenses that struggle to get out of their own way means it’ll be a defensive game in MetLife Stadium. Last week was the first time Atlanta looked like it knew how to use its weapons, and if they can find that same game plan this week, it should lead to another win.
