This is the first of two meetings between these two teams. The Bills are 4-4 on the season as they returned to action from their bye week and defeated the Miami Dolphins 33-17 to break a two game losing streak. The Bills defense had been lit up for 34 points each time in back to back losses to Cincinnati and Jacksonville. In their victory the Bills went to their ground and pound attack and generated a total of 266 rushing yards on 36 carries. They finished the game with 410 offensive yards. There is some sideshow attraction for this game as Buffalo head coach Rex Ryan returns to New York to face his former team that fired him after last season. The team is the second best rushing team in the NFL as they run for 141.6 yards per game. They score 26.1 points a game which is 8th best in the NFL. The team sits in the middle of the league on defense.
The New York Jets are 5-3 and they too broke a two game losing streak with a 28-23 home victory to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jets defense during their losing streak gave up 30 points at New England and 34 at Oakland in their defeats. In their win against Jacksonville the Jets gave up a lot of yards as the Jaguars piled up 436 yards. A concern is they allowed a struggling second year quarterback in Blake Bortles to pile up 381 passing yards along with two touchdowns and two picks. The Jets run game is a huge concern as their offensively line is banged up and as a result they ran for only 29 yards on 28 carries. New York still seems content to run the ball near the opponent’s goal line as the club had two rushing touchdowns last week. Jets are fourth in total defense by giving up 323 yards per game.
