Favorite Jets by 1
Last Week Jets lost to Bengals 23-22, Bills lost to Ravens 13-7
Fast Fact This is the first of the NFL color rush jersey games. The Bills will be donning their fire engine red jersey.
No, the Bills didn’t move. New Era bought the naming rights to the venue formerly known as Ralph Wilson Stadium. The NFL will be streaming the game for the first time on Twitter and feature a game with teams that have no love lost for one another. Still, both teams come in the short week desperate after tough losses. The Jets are the more complete team on both sides of the ball and while I still don’t understand the hype about Ryan Fitzpatrick, hes a QB capable of moving the ball well. The grinning jeering buffoon that is Rex Ryan is getting noticeably thicker. He says he had his lap band removed as a show of solidarity with twin brother Rob, who is his defensive coordinator. I say he did it to thicken his rear with the seat already getting very warm. Tyrod Taylor is looking more lost and with his coach’s disinterest in offense, he might continue to struggle. That’s sad considering the wealth of young talent that the Bills have on that side of the ball. This will be a low scoring grinder game, but the Bills will find a way to screw up a home opener and make Rex’s seat ever warmer.
Pick New York Jets
