Bills vs. Jets: 5 things to know for NFL Week 9

Bills vs. Jets: 5 things to know for NFL Week 9”

Buffalo comes into this Thursday night contest flashing a stellar 5-2 record that ranks them 2 in the AFC East and pegs them as the frontrunners to knock off the New England Patriots in a division that perennially seems to belong to Bill Belichick and Tom Brady.

The last time the Buffalo Bills were 5-2, Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was hitting Scott Chandler in the end zone for a win against the Washington Redskins and that was in 2011. The Bills are coming off a win over the Oakland Raiders in Week 8. The Jets are 3-4 overall, and 2-2 when playing at home. Afterwards, the Jets managed to bounce back and actually built a little bit of momentum as they managed to post a 3 game winning streak. Buffalo spotted the Raiders an early 7-0 lead, then scored the next 27 points of the game to take control.

The New York Jets know they can beat the Buffalo Bills. However, an upset against a divisional rival might just be what NY needs to get this ship, or jet, back on track. Quarterback Josh McCown threw for 257 yards and two touchdowns in 26-for-33 passes. Robby Anderson leads in receiving yards with 104 and a touchdown in six catches.

The Jets running game features Bilal Powell and Matt Forte. Neither have been great, and Forte had some choice words to say about the play calling in the loss last week. The Jets are rushing for just shy of 96 yards per game.

The Jets average 307.9 total yards and 19.6 points in the offense.

The Bills are scoring 21.9 points per game, which is 15th in all of the National Football League. The defense for Buffalo is where they are making their money. The Bills had their way with the Jets, although the score indicated a game that was more competitive than it really was. Buffalo will host the New Orleans Saints next week in a big game, before going to Los Angeles and Kansas City.

Here are five things to know about NY for this AFC East "Color Rush" clash. Since that hallowed game, New England has posted a win streak and NY hasn't been able to win a game. But so many things would have to go against the trends for the Jets to win - stop the run, take care of the ball and force some turnovers against a team that rarely takes any risks? The Jets are a 3.5 point underdog, and that's well worth betting on.

Days after heavy rain drenched the Meadowlands for the game between the Jets and Atlanta Falcons, fans headed to the AFC East clash will not have to worry about inclement weather Thursday night. Get your 100% signup bonus today.
