basically, all of these reasons (line is too low, Jets got hammered, MNF home dog, pride, series history)... all of these things can be summed up as 1 factor... motivation! i.e.... the line is low because books expect a harder effort... Jets got hammered so they will be sharper this week... MNF home dog plays hard for the home crowd and TV audience... Jets play the Texans close historically because (who knows?) they hate each other...
all of it is saying the same thing... we expect a focused, motivated Jets team tonight...
however, motivation is only one aspect of the game... you could tell me and 10 of my friends that if we don't beat the Colts in a 1 game series, that we will be executed... that's a ton of motivation... but we would still get our fools kicked!... you know why?
because we don't match up with the Colts!
i was joking about tebow lmfao. texans dominated jets and only won by 6. that said, jets had chance to win if not for tipped INTs and that stupid onside kick call. not complaining as i cashed. never look at just stats, situational capping as as important. rookie.
