Game probabilities for week 7 are up at the New York Times. This week I take a look at the Patriots Jets matchup and some surprising numbers.
A purely statistical approach is (deliberately) ignorant of things like the identity of the quarterbacks. It doesn’t know about Super Bowl rings or supermodel wives. It doesn’t know who is a rookie and who is a certainty for the Hall of Fame. It doesn’t know that Patriots linebacker Jerod Mayo is out for the regular season with a chest injury.
