Time To Show They Belong

Posted By Matt Brody On Nov 14 2013 @ 2:56 pm In New York Jets | No Comments

The New York Jets have set themselves up for a second half of the season playoff push.

At 5-4 they’re currently alone in the second wild card spot and actually built on their lead without playing a game last week.

When the Jets travel up to Buffalo this Sunday they’ll attempt to do two things they have not accomplished this season.  Win back-to-back games and get a division win on the road.

The Jets came out victorious when they played the Bills in Week 3, but that feels like a century ago.  Both teams have had their ups and downs since that game.

Geno Smith has looked great at times and then like a rookie at other moments.  E.J. Manuel missed four games due to injury before returning last week and he did not look sharp.

The Bills are struggling right now.  They’ve lost three in a row and have given up an average of 27 points in those contests.  Their stout defensive line has been far from solid this season, allowing opponents to rush for 117.3 yards per game, which bodes well for a run-heavy Jets offense.

Mistake free football is the key for New York.  They’re at their best when Smith and the offense hold on to the ball.  If the Jets are able to keep the turnovers to a minimum the team has a chance to start a little winning streak.

Final Score: New York 23  Buffalo 13
