Week 2 of the NFL preseason includes a showdown between the Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets. With low expectations this year, the Falcons surprised fans with a 27-23 win over the Detroit Lions last week. The game came down to the wire until Atlanta pulled ahead when Desmond Ridder hit Jared Bernhardt for a touchdown with 1:30 remaining.

The Jets also have momentum on their side after beating the Philadelphia Eagles 24-21 last Friday. Backup quarterbacks Mike White and Chris Streveler split duties after Zach Wilson exited the game with a knee injury. However, it was Streveler who stood out, going 6-of-9 for 62 yards, two touchdowns and a 125.9 passer rating.

Falcons vs Jets Prediction & Pick

The Falcons' victory last week was, in fact, quite the rare occurrence. They've actually been dreadful in recent preseasons, going 2-16 straight up in their last 18 games played in August. Furthermore, the Falcons only controlled the ball for 26:10, adding to the idea that their most recent preseason win was a fluke.

Though losing Wilson for the time being hurts, the Jets still played without him. They scored on three of their four trips to the red zone and even racked up 302 total yards. The Jets have some nice depth following one of the better 2022 NFL Draft showings as well, meaning they should have the necessary bodies to outlast the Falcons.

Final Score Prediction: Jets: 23 | Falcons: 16

Falcons vs Jets Best Bet

All NFL preseason betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

The Jets are the clear-cut better team here and should be able to get the job done whether White or Joe Flacco is under center. With the defensive improvements that New York has also made, the Falcons' uninspiring offense could have trouble producing results, leading to a Jets moneyline upset.
