Thursday Night Football: Jets Host the Surprising Bills

New York Jets Football

Bills Look to Prove Start is no Fluke Against Jets

The Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets will play on Thursday at MetLife Stadium. NFL Network will televise the game. Kickoff is set for 8:25 pm EST.

The Buffalo Bills are not only out to prove they are the best team in New York/New Jersey area. They want to unseat the Patriots and win the AFC East for the first time since Bill Clinton was in office. Their current playoff drought is the NFL’s longest.

The Bills have not won the division since 1995. The team would move into a tie with the idle Patriots for first place in the division with a win. They are also trying to win their 5th game out of the last 6.

Oddsmakers opened the Bills as -3.5-point favorites versus the Jets, while the game’s total opened at 42. The line is now Buffalo -3-points and the total is up to 42.5.

Jets Looking to Recover After Blowing the Falcons Game Last Week

New York lost its last outing, a 25-20 result against the Atlanta Falcons on October 29. The Jets covered in that game as a +6.5-point underdog, while the 45 combined points took the game OVER the total.

The Jets are not playing good football. They have lost three straight games. This all after blowing 14-point leads to the Patriots and the Miami Dolphins. Then the Jets let the Atlanta Falcons beat them up in the fourth quarter of a 25-20 loss Sunday.

The Jets may be without Jeremy Kerley, who is being suspended for an undisclosed violation. Kerley is the Jets’ third-leading receiver. He had a crucial muffed punt late in the loss to Atlanta.

Bills Defense is Leading the Way

Buffalo was a 34-14 winner in its last match at home against the Oakland Raiders. They covered the -1.5-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 48 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

This year’s Bills are dominant a very important stat in the NFL. That stat is turnover differential. Buffalo leads the league with a plus-14 margin. 17 takeaways and only three giveaways.

Strong safety Micah Hyde leads the NFL with five interceptions. Alexander leads the league with four forced fumbles. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor has thrown only two interceptions in 196 pass attempts.

Tight end Charles Clay is probaby going to miss his third straight game with a knee injury. Richie Incognito, has an ankle injury and free safety Jordan Poyer has knee issues are questionable. E.J. Gaines might can return from a hamstring injury after sitting out last week.
