Tom Brady's squad is a 22.5-point favorite over the Jets, who visit Foxborough on Sunday, according to ESPN's Mike Reiss, and they're not the only team heavily favored in NFL's third weekend of the 2019 season.

In a victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers in the regular-season opener on Sunday Night Football, the Patriots beat their bitter rivals 33-3, following that performance up with a really impressive all-around 43-0 blowout win over the Miami Dolphins last Sunday.

The Cowboys are now listed as 21.5-point favorites against the Dolphins for Sunday's game at AT&T Stadium. NY is down to its third-string quarterback for Week 3 as Sam Darnold has mononucleosis and backup Trevor Siemian is out for the year with an ankle injury. The Cowboys were 21.5-point favorites against Philadelphia and the 49ers were 23-point favorites against Atlanta. It seems insane at first glance, but the Dolphins have been outscored 102-10 thus far this season, so the sportsbooks are making the necessary adjustments to the point spread as a result.

Alright, look: If you want to throw a bunch of money at both the New England Patriots and Dallas Cowboys to cover the spread - which I did in our weekly picks - it comes with some risk.

Both the Dolphins and Jets will kick off at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday.
