The New York Jets will aim for their best regular season record since 1998 in their game against the Buffalo Bills this Sunday, January 2nd. The two will meet at the New Meadowlands Stadium in New Rutherford, New Jersey at 1:00PM ET for their 100th regular season meeting. The main difference between these teams is that the Jets have already clinched a playoff berth, whereas the Bills are simply fighting for pride and a positive end to their season. Still, the Jets have a few things to worry about going into this game. With injuries and a weak recently weak defense, the Bills might just have a shot at this one.

The Jets are heading into their second straight playoff season despite a few issues with their game. Offensively, the team is looking ready for this one. In their last two games, the Jets racked up 393 yards against the Chicago Bears and 276 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. However, that is when they had QB Mark Sanchez. Sanchez injured his shoulder in the game on December 19th in Pittsburgh, and has been questionable for play since. Coach Rex Ryan wants to play him for week 17, but only is he is back to 100%. In reality, we will probably see Mark Brunell or Kellen Clemens in his place instead. A further worry of Ryan’s is the recently unreliable fourth ranked defense. Last year’s top ranked D has allowed an average of 309.0 yards and 110 points while letting opposing QBs throw 9 TDs and one INT over their last four games. All this being said, Sunday’s outcome is not so easy to determine. Either way, the number six seed will have a shot in the playoffs this year. Football odds.
Surprisingly, Buffalo lead the series history 53-46. Still, the Jets have won the last two meetings. With the worst defense in the league against the run and a rather banged up QB [Ryan Fitzpatrick, who had a season-high three INT and two fumbles last Sunday], the team will have to give it their all or go home with one more loss this season.
