Jets playoff hopes erased after loss to Bills

The Buffalo Bills the New York Jets and ended the Jets playoff hopes. A year after being fired by the Jets and taking over in Buffalo, Ryan got his revenge by ending the Jets’ hopes of making the playoffs for the first time since 2010. The Bills defense closed the game by intercepting Ryan Fitzpatrick on each of New York’s final three possessions in a season-ending 22-17 win Sunday. The Bills swept the season series against their AFC East rivals with both wins decided by the exact same score.

Jets vs Bills Last Week

The Bills lost to Baltimore in week one, 13-7. The Ravens Joe Flacco went 23 for 34 for 258 yards and one touchdown. The game as the score indicates was a defensive one with the Bills only getting 160 yards in total offense. The main reason for the Bills ineffective offense was an offensive line that was completely over matched. Bills starting LT Cory Glenn (ankle) left with injuries in the second quarter and did not return. Even before he left the line looked like it was going to be in for a long day. Sammy Watkins had 4 receptions for 43 yards and he was the teams leading receiver.

The Jets also lost in week one as they lost a close one to the Cincinnati Bengals 23-22. The Bengals Andy Dalton had a decent game throwing for 366 yards and one touchdown. The Jets defense did get to Dalton, sacking him a career high 7 times. Ryan Fitzpatrick went 19 of 35 for 189 yards and two touchdown passesĀ  The Jets were hurt by drives sputtering in the red zone and having to settle for field-goal attempts rather than touchdowns. Jets running back Matt Forte, signed as a free agent in the offseason, ran for 96 yards on 22 carries for the Jets, and caught five passes for 59 yards. These are the Jets however, and they had to find a way to lose. Nick Folk’s missed extra point went wide right after a 15-yard touchdown catch by Decker with 9:38 left in the first half and setting up the one point loss. The last chance of winning ended when Ryan Fitzpatrick threw his only interception of the day.

New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills Free Pick

The Bills showed their strength which is an aggressive defense that can dominate at times. However, they also showed their weakness which is one of the worst offensive lines in the NFL and a quarterback who is in over his head. The Jets defense looked pretty good and the offense, well they are the Jets and will play just good enough to lose. Last year Ryan got his revenge but this year he just doesn’t have the talent on offense to get a win here. It is tough taking a team with Ryan Fitzpatrick at quarterback because he will throw interceptions that can turn a game around quick but this game will be a close low scoring game and I will take the Jets as long as I can get 3 or more points. I am also taking the under in the game as both offenses should be controlled by the other teams defensive line.

Jets vs Bills Free Pick: Jets +3 & under 42
