Seems like everything is stacked against the Bills, once again this week. EJ trying to bounce back after a poor performance in week 10, injured SJ, great Jets D that shut us down the 1st half of the first matchup in NJ and just came off of shutting down perhaps the best offense in the NFL, New Orleans, Jets coming off a bye week. Oh and of course David Nelson bearing a grudge returning, am sure he will rack up about 200 yds with Geno leading the way. Maybe a pessimist view, but it is that kind of a week around here. Hopefully we get Woods back and that could help. But we will need a strong showing from our QB which I am likely alone in  thinking that could happen, but I liked what I saw from him in his development prior to yesterday.

These two teams typically get pretty chippy, so pride may be on the line from the Bills side and Jets are fighting for a playoff spot.

I am serious when I say this, but I think we have a decent shot at winning this, something like 9-6. I can see geno throwing several picks and EJ getting sacked 10 times. Whichever defense generates more scoring opportunities will win.

Geno hasn't been asked to do much as of late and it is helping them win. I wouldn't be shocked if this game went either way but given our recent track record I think this will be another loss

The Bills will play hard if for no other reason than to spoil the Jets' playoff aspirations and to show that they didn't make the wrong QB choice.  I actually am expecting the Bills to win and I will chalk it up under the "too little too late" category.

Per Joe B. on WGR this morning, the coaches are leaning toward sitting Woods on Sunday and will decide on Stevie later in the week based on whether/how much he can practice. He also said that he feels like the players still believe in EJ but doesn't know if it is genuine or forced.

I would not risk playing injured players, lets see what our back ups can do and get some experience. This is getting ready for next season, injuries ended this one already.

That is pretty much what Marrone said, specifically to Woods, that they could either have him for the rest of the year or play him in this game and risk him worsening the high ankle sprain. He was leaning toward having him for the last 5 games.

The Jets are a different team on the road this year, like night vs. day.  They can beat a team like the Saints at home but get routed by the Titans and Bengals on the road.  The Bills players and fans need to make sure the Jets 'know' they are on the road this week.  And lets hope Sunday's dud against the Steelers won't be repeated.

I agree - once again, it will be run and play defense, and win the TO battle. Assuming the Bills passing game will be non-existent. As I recall from the Jets-NO game, the Jets were able to run all over NO yet Geno only completed 8 passes. The Jets also ran on the Bills. as I recall, especially on 3rd and short which was awful and Bilal Powell of all people. Our run D has improved since then, however.

OK Season over
Bills knew their playoff lives depended on winning out and they go to Pittsburgh and collectively lay an egg. No heart . Jets will probably blast them. 14 years and counting.
There My two cents.

I think Manuel plays much better in this one and the Bills find a way to beat the overachieving Jets.

I will never NOT root for a Bills win.  But I'm not picking them again in my pool this season other than the Jacksonville game.

I agree they are very likely out of the playoffs but with everyone losing in the AFC this weekend, they still have an outside shot. I am sure they have not given up like the fans have.

I hope Jets fans come read this board. They're hopes are still really high. They are likely playoff bound, and they'll lose quick. But just seeing how nonchalant don't give a f we are has to be laughable. I really don't care if we win any more games this year as long as we keep improving. I've maintained that all season. I didn't come in setting my hopes high to have them crushed and believe we can still win 3 more games.

JR is right, it will be a horrible game to watch where the varsity defenses just destroy the JV offensive units.  It will be funny watching Geno throw a pick 6 and on the ensuing drives first play Manuel gets sacked and fumbles to give it right back then Jets go 12 yards and punt.

Absolute guarantee that will happen

If we lose, BUT we get to see another Eugene Smiff behind the back butt fumble, I'll be okay.

If this game is close in the 3rd quarter, I'll be surprised.

This team is mentally beaten. I see us going out and having a frustrating/lackluster day.

Jets win 24-10.

To me, this game is trouble, for the following reasons: 1) Jets D, especially the front 7, is outstanding.  2) They are coming off of a bye with a short trip game.  3) Ryan is an exerienced coach going up against a rookie coach. 4) Smith has developed faster than Manuel due to lack of injury and playing time.  5) The Jets are fighting for a playoff spot. I hope I am wrong like last week when I picked the Steelers but I have to go with the Jets.  I am beginning to wonder if the Bills will be able to recover from the KC debacle.

Well, the Jets are the only team in the AFC looking at the 6 spot with 5 wins - just saying. Everyone else has 4 wins so at least for those of us going, there IS something to cheer for on Sunday.
