The Jets and Bills both come into this weeks game in a 0-1 hole, with each team looking to bounce back after losing close games to the Bengals and Ravens, respectively. With each team looking to get its first win of the season, it’s important to remember stuff like this:

If we are to go off of history’s gauge then someones playoff chances are going to get a lot slimmer tonight.

HOW TO WATCH:

TV: CBS & NFL Network.

Radio: Sirius XM 225, 226.

Streaming: Twitter & NFL Game Pass.

Time: 7:25 pm CT.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:

  • This Jets’ defensive line did its best to bury Andy Dalton last Sunday, sacking him seven times, and that was without Sheldon Richardson, who returns tonight. With stars like Leonard Williams and Muhammed Wilkerson on the line, it’s not hard to see why the Jets had so much success getting after the quarterback. What’s even more interesting is that the Jets’ front 7 will be going up against a Bills’ offensive line that posted the 6th highest adjusted sack rate last season and will be without its starting left tackle.
  • The slow and steady decline of Darrelle Revis is beginning to become more and more apparent each day. Revis got roasted by A.J. Green last weekend in what’s becoming a much more frequent occurrence for Revis, who has lost some of the long speed that allowed him to run with some of the best receivers in the league. Tonight, he’ll get to cover another player with great deep speed in Sammy Watkins, assuming Watkins does play tonight. At the time of this writing, Watkins is supposed to be active tonight.

Usual open thread rules apply, so sit back and enjoy the colour rush uniforms for the first time this season.
