NFL Best Bets & Odds: Week 11 Thursday Night Football
While Ja’Marr Chase has had a few big games, Mac Jones should be considered the favorite for Rookie of the Year, especially after his performance last week. He completed over 80% of his passes for 198 yards and three touchdowns. Jones is looking like the perfect fit for this Patriots team. He also gets the luxury of playing with a strong running game and opposite a talented defense. Make no mistake; the Patriots are a solid team once again.

The Falcons, however, should be viewed as overachievers to this point, and reality seems to be catching up to them quickly. The defense lacks talent, the offense has injuries and absences, and Matt Ryan is not good enough anymore to clear multiple hurdles. After being an unexpected spark to a lackluster offensive group, Cordarrelle Patterson is not expected to play tonight, which is a massive hit to their offense.
