Bills vs. Jets preview:
The Bills finally fired Rex Ryan after two seasons, leaving Anthony Lynn as interim coach, and also leaving the franchise in a precarious position in regards to their quarterback. Ryan was an ardent supporter of Tyrod Taylor, but his play has been inconsistent and at times quite poor. This Sunday, apparently EJ Manuel will get the start, so the Bills can at least get a better sense of what they're working with at the position.
The Jets got murdered on live television last Saturday by Tom Brady and the Patriots, 41-3. It was 27-0 at halftime, and I would have loved to hear what was said in the Jets locker room at that point. The players would've been better off napping through the game. Nick Folk kicked a a field goal with six minutes left in the game to save a shutout, and hilariously, Ryan Fitzpatrick actually got playing time, where he promptly threw two interceptions, as is his wont. It's baffling that the Jets won a single game this year.
Bills vs. Jets prediction:
The Jets have given up. I don't care if the Bills start toddlers, there's no way the Jets win this game.
