Thankfully they have the weapons to break the fever, including Josh Allen’s legs. Allen has ramped up his running with 13/105/1 over the past two weeks. Sporting only one interception all year, the Jets got taken apart in surgical fashion by Carson Wentz in Week 9. … Speaking of Carson Wentz, it was his 2020 version that Matthew Stafford paid tribute to in Week 9 with a pair of mind-numbing, game-ruining picks.
