4.) Buffalo Bills’ defense allows no more than 200 receiving yards

While Josh Allen and the Buffalo offense will have a tough task against the Jets’ defense, let’s not forget that the Bills defense has been ranked in the top ten in the league for several years now. Part of their success is being able to shut down the pass.

Jets’ receivers Garrett Wilson, Allen Lazard, Randall Cobb and company will have to face a Bills secondary that has not had Tre’Davious White, Jordan Poyer, and Micah Hyde on the field at the same time since 2021. This game will finally feature them three on the field together and they are one of the sole reasons why the Bills’ defense is able to create stops and make life hard for an offense.

On top of that, the Bills’ defensive line has the advantage in the trenches as the Jets’ offensive line has been shaky since training camp. If they are able to create pressure in the pocket and make Rodgers’ game get out of rhythm, that is where the Bills’ secondary comes into play in coverage.
