An AFC East matchup of almost-there-but-not-quite up-and-comers, both cut from the same cloth: good but inconsistent defenses, equivalently occasionally explosive offenses. Oh, and both having been coached by the same man - Rex Ryan - last season and this season (though, of course, not concurrently.
Here's the statistical tail of the tape:
TOTAL OFFENSE: Jets #11, Bills #20
RUSHING OFFENSE: Bills #2, Jets #14
PASSING OFFENSE: Jets #17, Bills #29
TOTAL DEFENSE: Jets #4, Bills #16
RUSHING DEFENSE: Jets #1, Bills #6
PASSING DEFENSE: Jets #14, Bills #24
Short version: The Jets will pass on the Bills, and the Bills won't run on the Jets. And it's in the Snoopy Bowl.
N.Y. Jets * (-2.5)
The Jets are looking like the top AFC wild card. At the moment, at least. In case anybody outside - or, heck, inside - Gotham is interested.
UPDATE: What is with the Bills' all-red uniforms? I get the Jets' all-green get-ups, that's their primary color. But the Bills' is blue, not red. Did Terrence Pegula lose a bet?
