NFL Monday Night Football predictions for Week 7 of the 2019 NFL season. Can the New England Patriots maintain their perfect record or will the New York Jets follow up their shock win over Dallas with another major upset on Monday night? Read on for all of our free predictions and betting tips.

New England Patriots at New York Jets (Tuesday 01:15 BST)

The New England Patriots are once again setting the standard in not only the AFC East but the whole National Football League itself. Bill Belichick’s team are one of the two franchises yet to taste defeat this season, but having played game more than San Francisco they are the only team that boasts a 6-0 record heading into week seven. The question is, will they still be perfect following their trip to the ‘Big Apple’ to take on a New York Jets team who finally got off the mark in a big way in week six?

The Jets were poised to make a winning start to the season when they took a 16-3 lead into the final quarter of a home game with Buffalo on opening weekend, but the Bills came storming back to put 14 unanswered points on the board and that comeback sparked a miserable few weeks for the home team. Quarterback Sam Darnold was sidelined with illness following that matchup and with backup Luke Falk at the controls New York offered very little in convincing defeats to Cleveland and New England as they entered the bye week 0-3. An additional week to prepare proved to be useless as they were soundly beaten by Philadelphia in week four, so when the Dallas Cowboys came to town for week six very little was expected of the Jets, even with Darnold now back at the controls on offense.

However, Adam Gase’s team sprang one of the biggest surprises so far as they recorded their first win of the season and sent Dallas spiralling to 3-3. New York blasted out of the blocks with three first-half touchdowns, including a 92-yard hook-up between Darnold and Robby Anderson, but fans must have been having flashbacks to week one when the Cowboys put up 13 unanswered points to haul themselves right back into the contest with just over six-and-a-half minutes remaining. Kicker Sam Ficken calmed the nerves a little when he responded with a 38-yard field goal to give New York an eight-point cushion, but Dallas still had enough time to work their way downfield and put themselves in the position to tie the game. Dak Prescott’s four-yard run with 10 seconds remaining meant the Cowboys would send the game into overtime if they successfully completed a two-point conversion, but the Jets got pressure to Prescott quickly and that forced an errant throw that Jason Witten could not haul in. New York had survived by the skin of their teeth, but the first win was on the board.

And what a timely win it was. After all, the last thing that the Jets needed was to take an 0-5 record into a week six meeting with a Patriots team who have already crushed them once this season and did not give up anything to the Jets until they pulled starters from the game. But can New York build on that shock victory with another massive upset at MetLife Stadium on Monday night? Do not hold your breath. On Sunday the Jets came up against a Dallas team who were reeling from back-to-back victories, and on Monday night they are coming up against a New England team who have been in fine form on both sides of the football so far this season.

The Patriots have scored 30 points or more in five of their six outings while averaging 31.66 points per game, and only that stout Buffalo defense has managed to hold the New England offense to less than 379 total yards and 30 points. The Patriots offense has been a little sloppy in protecting the football, giving up seven turnovers so far, but the defense has more than covered for that with a string of outstanding performances. They lead the league in points allowed (48) and turnovers (16), while this unit ranks third in the NFL when it comes to yardage given up (1,408), so while Darnold and the Jets were able to produce a season-best showing against Dallas last time out, it is difficult to see them enjoying a great deal of success here, even with their starting QB back in the mix. New England will almost certainly win this matchup by a couple of scores, but the Jets can at least enjoy a few positive moments to help ensure that the total points tally eclipses 43.5.
