New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills

New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills

After a relatively quiet debut season with the Bills, rushing for 895 yards and three touchdowns in 2015, McCoy's production improved substantially last season. Ironically enough, both teams are rebuilding with hopes of a brighter future.

- I haven't highlighted too much of the New York Jets team in a positive light because, well, there isn't that much to highlight.

"With any starter, it gets to the point in the week where you got to say, 'Hey, we're going to have to go one way or the other, '" Buffalo head coach Sean McDermott said Monday, per ESPN.com's Mike Rodak.

At any rate, this game could easily go one of two ways. "If it's on the ground or in the air, it may be a key block, whatever it takes to win, I'm down for it".

McDermott's struggle with the QB position is solved as Tyrod Taylor has come back from his concussion. Keep in mind that Fubo also works on portable devices as well as your personal computer.

The Jets didn't manage a first down until just over four minutes into the second quarter, and had possession for only 4:15 of the first quarter, going three-and-out on their first two attempts.

Nobody ran the ball better than the Bills, as LeSean McCoy chalked up 1,267 yards and 13 rushing scores to lead the way. He was also on the active roster before the Jets' Week 17 win over Buffalo past year.

After a plethora of injuries, Robby Anderson leads the way for the Jets wide receivers.

Buffalo will have to be careful on their usage of McCoy, however, as the nine-year veteran is already 29, which isn't exactly a spring chicken age for a running back. Maye, in fact, had the coverage on a 1-yard touchdown reception by Clay. For the Bills, they are playing in two new systems, unlike the Jets, so that could be an opening-day issue.

I thought I would be writing about how Ronald Darby would be making interceptions against our opponents in the regular season. In the 17 seasons since the Bills were last in the postseason they've posted a 112-160 record and a consistently mediocre average winning percentage of.412, all of which doesn't allow them to select players at the top of each draft. The unit lacks true deep speed and a dominant player.

That mold does not include the Jets' starting quarterback, Josh McCown.

The same can be said about the Jets receiving corps. Those playmakers have been replaced by Robby Anderson and former Seahawk Jermaine Kearse. We'll see if they show up on Sunday.

Due to the lack of offensive weapons on both sides, this game looks to be a low-scoring affair.
