Buffalo Bills Vs New York Jets
This Sunday we have a match up you probably won’t be watching, the Buffalo Bills hit the road to take on the New York Jets.
Neither the Jets nor the Bills season have gone to plan, but this season is all about building for the future. Both teams went out and drafted what they think can be their franchise quarterback. The Jets traded up to number three overall pick to draft Sam Darnald out of USC and the Bills traded up to seventh overall pick to draft Josh Allen out of Wyoming.
Josh Allen for the Bills has missed three straight games after suffering a sprain in his elbow against the Houston Texas in week six. His status for Sunday is still uncertain, if he cant go backup Derek Anderson should get the nod. Last week Anderson was dealing with a concussion so third string quarterback Nathan Peterman got the start.
Peterman might be in the discussion for the worst quarterback in the league. The second year quarterback had three interceptions in his first start since getting demolished by Baltimore 47-3. Peterman now has seven interceptions in just two starts. If Anderson still can’t go this week there is no way you can play Peterman again. Expect newly signed Matt Barkley to come in if Peterman is the last option.
Not much going for the Bills, although they still have LeSean McCoy he hasn’t been able to do much either. McCoy has yet to exceed 100 yards rushing in a game this season. Showing some signs of spark is the defense when they actually decide to show up. In their two wins they gave up a combined 19 points, beating the Minnesota Vikings in comfortable fashion and taking out the Tennessee Titian’s with a last second field goal.
New York doesn’t look much better, but their offense has showed signs of success. In their three wins the offense played a major factor scoring 34 points on Denver and putting up over 40 points against the Indianapolis Colts and the Detroit lions.
Rookie quarterback Sam Darnold will need to improve after last weeks performance, he had four interceptions in a 13-6 loss to the Miami Dolphins. The games only touchdown came off a 25-yard interception by Miami’s Jerome Baker with 11 minutes left in the game. New York’s offense took four sacks and went 2 for 15 on third and fourth down.

Prediction Buffalo Bills Vs New York Jets
New York is the favorite in this game and they should be, Buffalo might be the worst team in the league and if Nathan Peterman makes the start there is no way Buffalo wins. If Josh Allen can make a come back this week the Bills could have a legit shot of winning this game.
This game is going to come down to which quarterback makes the fewest mistakes. Sam Darnold has thrown an interception in almost every game this season and I see that trend continuing, but the question might be how many interceptions will the Bills quarterbacks throw?
The Bills lost, 34-21 in New York against the Jets last season. The outcome will most likely be the same, but Buffalo hasn’t scored more than 13 points in a game in over five weeks. With continuing quarterback controversy the Bills will fall short yet again and the trend of hitting the under should continue.
