It will not be a cakewalk for New England over these final four games. The Pats are a road dog this week against the Las Vegas Raiders. Caesars Sportsbook currently has them listed as underdogs in their Week 16 matchup with the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Patriots odds for the Week 17 home game with the Miami Dolphins and the Week 18 road game with the Buffalo Bills will mainly depend on what happens over these next two weeks.
Matthew Judon in the Running for Defensive Player of the Year
In 2021, the Patriots went outside their comfort zone and spent a lot of money on free agents. One of the guys brought it was pass rusher Matthew Judon. After a successful stint with the Baltimore Ravens, Judon has continued to thrive under head coach Bill Belichick.
Judon is having such a good year that he finds himself in the Defensive Player of the Year conversation.
Judon has 14.5 sacks on the season. That puts him first in the AFC and second in the league behind only Nick Bosa (15.5). The odds for him to lead the league in sacks are .
Right now, all eyes for the award are on Bosa and Micah Parsons. Currently, Judon’s odds are at . If he has a strong finish in these final four games and ends up with the most sacks in the league, he could sneak in the backdoor and win the award.
Rookie Jack Jones Longshot for Defensive Rookie of the Year
It is not often that a fourth-round pick finds himself in the running for a Rookie of the Year award. But the Patriots may have found themselves a star late in the draft. Tell me if you’ve heard that story before.
I’m not saying Jack Jones is about to become the Tom Brady of cornerbacks. However, Jones has dramatically exceeded expectations and is becoming one of the featured players on one of the best defenses in the NFL.
Jones’ odds to win the award are at . He has a major uphill climb. Ahmad “Sauce” Gardner is the odds-on favorite. He has already thrust himself into the conversation among the best cover corners in the league.

Can Jones catch Sauce in this race? Possibly. It would take four shutdown games from Jones and maybe a few letdown games from Sauce. But that is certainly possible.
