If your like me, you were hoping that the New York Jets would be heading into the final game of the season against the Buffalo Bills in a must win situation in order to make the playoffs. But unfortunately, the Jets have already clinched a playoff spot and find themselves backing into the playoffs.
How long will the Jets starters will play remains to be seen, but if I was Coach Rex, I would keep them in there as long as I could so they could find some rhythm.
No matter who takes the field for the Jets, I see this a huge game for the Buffalo Bills. The Bills went from the laughing stock of the NFL to a team that nobody took lightly. Now, with the exception of last week’s ugly loss to the Patriots, the Bills have hung tough in every game, and they should continue to give it their all in this final game of the season.
Should the Bills win, they would have a earned themselves a 5-3 record in the second half of the season, and that’s definitely something to build upon. Also, the Bills are currently ranked 24th in the NFL in yards, which won’t turn anyone’s head, but that’s the highest they’ve been ranked since 2002.
So let’s hope the Bills don’t decide to pack it in a week early with the media calling this game meaningless. Because as I see it, the Bills have a lot to play for.
