New York Jets at Buffalo Game Preview
Why New York Jets Will Win
The offense hasn’t been all that bad.
It’s still a work in progress as QB Zach Wilson gets more and more experience, but for this team, getting to 24 points or more in each of the last three games matter.
There’s still a fight to this bunch, even if the overall results – and talent on defense – aren’t there. The running game has been strong over the last few weeks, the turnovers have slowed to non-existent, and there’s a shot Buffalo isn’t quite razor-sharp with a playoff spot locked in.
Why Buffalo Will Win
Yeah, there’s still a reason to care. The Bills win the AFC East and get home field in the wild-card round with a win, and New England gets that with a win over Miami and with a Buffalo loss.
The running game was great at times throughout the year, but now it’s kicking in large with Devin Singletary going off with close to 300 yards over the last four games.
The Jets get run on more than any defense in the league – and they allow more rushing scores than anyone. The Bills ran for 139 yards in the first meeting – a 45-17 win – and should get that without breathing too hard.
What’s Going To Happen
It’s Buffalo, it’s January, and there’s a division championship on the line.
And it’s going to be cold, rainy, and very, very windy. It’s going to be a party.
The Bills will run, they’ll stop the run, and they’ll take the win and see just how high they can get in this little tournament.
There won’t be any issues.
