Belichick "would imagine" Cam Newton starts against Jets in Week 17

New England Patriots quarterback Cam Newton could remain the starter for Week 17's game against the New York Jets.

What It Means:

When asked about Newton's performance against the Buffalo Bills on Monday, Bill Belichick said "I thought he did what we asked him to do." When asked who would start against the Jets, he said "I would imagine [Cam Newton will start]. We're going through that right now. We'll see." The door is being left open for Newton to be benched, but at the moment, he appears to be the presumed starter. It sounds like the Patriots will make an official decision soon.

The Patriots are 3.5-point favorites over the Jets in Week 17. Their implied team total of 22.25 points is the 13th-lowest team total on Sunday's main slate, according to numberFire's DFS Heat Map.
