The New York Jets officially won't have starting cornerback Bless Austin for their season finale against the Patriots. Austin missed every practice this week with an illness. (New York Jets on Twitter)

Betting Impact:

Austin's absence will probably thrust backup CB Lamar Jackson (not the quarterback) into the starting lineup for New York, and he hasn't looked good this season. If the Patriots had a better quarterback under center than Cam Newton, I would be on the over in this one, but Newton's limitations as a passer mean that this news doesn't really mean all that much.
