Game Predictions | Bills at Jets | Monday Night Football
I cannot wait for this one. When was the last time Jets fans had real expectations going into a season? 2011? All things considered, the summer went well for them. The offensive line is far from perfect, but Mekhi Becton finally won the right tackle job, and Duane Brown should be able to offer competency at left tackle. Aaron Rodgers looks healthy and comfortable on his new team. Wide receiver Garrett Wilson could be a breakout star. And the defense is loaded.
The Bills seem to be weirdly flying under the radar, even though they're 37-12 in the past three regular seasons with Josh Allen as their starter. I still have Buffalo winning the AFC East. They are legit Super Bowl contenders. But for this game, I don't love the matchup for them. Every time the Bills seem to struggle, it's because the pass protection doesn't hold up. I think that Allen could be running for his life with the way this Jets team rushes the passer. The Jets hype has to reach a crescendo before it comes crashing down. I think this game is part of the buildup stage.
