Sunday looms as a pivotal moment in the NFC East. Despite a plethora of injuries, various COVID complexes and the ups and downs of the Bills’ players, they have a chance to win the AFC East for the second year in a row. All they need is a Patriots win or loss. In that regard, the Jets are definitely the desirable matchup for Week 18. At 4-12, they look ahead to the offseason, particularly after a loss to the Buccaneers in which they led before the final two minutes.
The Bills appeared to be close to collapsing against the Falcons last week, but they did not allow a point in the second half and won comfortably 29-15. Now, the task is simple. Win and get a home game in the playoffs. When staying at Orchard Park, that’s invaluable, particularly in January when the boundaries are significantly less than friendly.
The Jets have a lot to be excited about, but it’s just not their time right now. Zach Wilson is starting to show some sparkles as the No. 1 quarterback, but there is a lot of work to be done this offseason with the BYU product. Michael Carter will be out this week, further hampering an offense that has struggled this year. The Jets are 16.5-point dogs in this game, but they have the potential to keep this game significantly closer.
This game won’t make or break the future for the Bills, but it’s a great game for them nonetheless. Although the Bills have 5-3 records both on the road and at home, there’s no denying that having to travel to a place like Foxborough would be a brutal wild-card attraction. They want to host. It would mean a lot to the team and the fans, and the Jets are the only thing standing between the Bills and doing it.
