Both teams snatched defeat from the jaws of victory this past week. The Bills lost due to a Charles Clay drop in the endzone for the go-ahead score as time expired, while the Jets lost in the last minute as the Titans came from behind to win with a last-minute touchdown. With the AFC East already wrapped up and once again gift wrapped to the New England Patriots, these two teams are looking to duel for last place in the division. A year ago, the Jets drafted 3rd overall, but the Bills- they were in the playoffs. Now trending in similar ways, each team is tied to their young quarterback for a chance at success. This will undoubtedly involve some nasty weather so it should b quite an entertaining watch.

Bills vs. Jets News
The Buffalo Bills have been a roller coaster of emotions this season. Nathan Peterman is one of the worst quarterbacks in NFL history. They traded away A.J. McCarron to the Oakland Raiders after bringing him in to be the stable backup. They’ve battled availability from stars like Kelvin Benjamin and LeSean McCoy, and yet, they have the second-best defense in all of football. The Jets have been equally confusing. Sam Darnold has been great at times, while at other times, he is erratic. New York doesn’t have a standout offensive target for him to throw to, but seem to find themselves in games that they otherwise wouldn’t be in, only to lose more often than not.
Bills vs. Jets Predictions
I think the Bills are a better team. I think they have a better running back, defense, and supporting cast on offense including Kelvin Benjamin, Charles Clay, and not to mention, Brian Daboll calling the plays. I’ll take them to win it on the road by a score of 23 – 17.
