The NFL is just days away, which means that opening weekend is right around the corner. The Buffalo Bills are on the road in week one, as they face off against their cross state rivals, the New York Jets. NFL Odds favor the New York Jets at -3 in this one. Do you think Buffalo can come in and pull off the upset, or will the Jets protect home field?
Buffalo and New York haven’t exactly looked great this preseason, so this one could go one of many different directions. Neither of the teams won a game this preseason. However, one must win Sunday afternoon.
The Bills are going to rely on their offense once again this season, and Stevie Johnson will be a big part of that. He will be matched up with the multi-pro bowler, Darrelle Revis. Unlike most receivers in the NFL, Johnson has given Revis trouble in the past. In the last four times these two have faced one another, Johnson has 19 receptions for 262 yards and two touchdowns. However, Johnson has been dealing with a groin issue this offseason. He had surgery on that same groin, and he says he will not be quite 100% for this game.
Offense will not be the only factor. Even though the Jets’ offense looks horrible, the Bills defense will have to step up. This is a unit that should be improved a lot from last season.
This game is very winnable for the Bills. The Jets’ offense has been awful this preseason, and all the Bills have to do is beat the Jets’ defense a few times. I doubt the Jets score in double figures in this game. The Bills defense has improved a lot this offseason.
