New York Jets
The New York Jets (6-9) will play the Buffalo Bills (5-10) this coming Sunday afternoon at Ralph Wilson Stadium from Buffalo, NY.
Game starts at 1:00 pm on CBS (TV) and WFAN (Radio).
Bills favorites over Jets.
Spread is -3.5 points.
My pick is the Bills.
It will be the last game of the regualr season for the New York Jets as they play the Buffalo Bills on the road to end their annoying season.
This will be the last game for Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum, OC Tony Sparano, DC Mike Pettine and QB Tim Tebow who all four will be gone in the offseason.
Really, they are playing a meaningless game and it really doesn't matter if the Jets beat the Bills or not. The only thing that will matter is if what happens after the game.
Here are the the three things to do for the Jets in order to win:
(1) Mark Sanchez has impressed Rex Ryan one more last time if he is expected the be the starting quarterback for the Jets next season. He has to get his moving downfield or he will be the backup instead.
(2) Get Shonn Greene active early in the game so the Jets offense can have mometum throughout the game. He has a chance to reach over 1,000 rushing yards on the season and that is probably to thing to look forward to if you are a Jets fan.
(3) The Jets defense needs to attack Ryan Fitzpatrick anf throw off his game so it can keep Mark Sanchez and the offense a chance to score touchdowns and win it in a close one.
Out: CB Aaron Berry (Hamstring)
Doubtful: TE Dustin Keller (Ankle), LB Bryan Thomas (Chest), WR Chaz Schilens (Knee), QB Greg McElory (Abs)
Questionable: WR Braylon Edwards (Hamstring), CB Ellis Lankster (Concussion)
Out: TE Scott Chandler (Knee), S Da'Norris Searcy (Groin), DE Mark Anderson (Knee)
Final score is Bills 20, Jets 13

MARK SANCHEZ CAN'T FIND END ZONE AS JETS LOCK UP WORST SEASON IN REX RYAN ERA. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Those who subscribed to the logic that Sunday's regular season finale against the Buffalo Bills would be Mark Sanchez's final "try out" to the organization -- and potentially others -- that he can be a starter in the NFL were disappointed as the clock stuck...
Following Sunday’s 28-9 loss to the Buffalo Bills — and an embarrassing 6-10 season — NY Jets head coach Rex Ryan was asked why he never started Tim Tebow as quarterback despite Mark Sanchez’s poor performance on the field. His answer was telling: “I'm trying to win the game, and that's it,” Ryan said. “If I thought Tebow would have helped us win the game...
Following his second consecutive disappointing season at the
helm of the New York Jets, coach Rex Ryan is reportedly telling anyone that
will listen that he’d be better off being fired if the team isn’t willing to “rectify
player personnel and coaching issues on offense,” reports Manish Mehta of the
New York Daily News.
The Daily News has learned that Ryan, the swashbuckling...
With all the importance places on head injuries and concussions in sports over the past few years, all the safety measures in the world don’t help if players aren’t honest about their suffering.
Greg McElroy was sacked 11 times in the Jets’ loss to the Chargers on Sunday, and at some point during the game suffered a concussion — it’s not exactly clear when. McElroy reportedly...
According to the Buffalo News, there have rumors floating around that the Bills will not only fire head coach Chan Gailey, but also part ways with general manager Buddy Nix. Rumors were swirling in NFL circles Saturday that the Buffalo Bills would clean house and fire not only head coach Chan Gailey but General Manager Buddy Nix as well. However, high ranking Bills sources insisted...
Bills running back C.J. Spiller hit a brick wall on most of his runs Sunday against the Jets (just 2.5 yards per carry) but he was able to salvage the afternoon by hauling in a 66-yard strike from quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick.Fantasy Spin:The touchdown was Spiller's eighth of the season (two receiving, six rushing). Spiller's 1,244 yards rushing in 2012 are a career-high...
Buffalo Bills defensive end Mark Anderson has been ruled out for Sunday's regular-season finale against the New York Jets.
There were slim hopes the defender would suit up for the first time since injuring his knee during the 45-3 loss to the 49ers in San Francisco in week five, but coach Chan Gailey announced after practice Friday that Anderson would not play.
Rex Ryan’s bravado may have finally got the best of him. The New York Jets head coach has always been extremely confident, in fact, cocky. According to those in the know, if team owner won’t make the changes Rex wants, he should fire Rex. See, Rex isn’t stupid, either. He didn’t say my way or [...]
With the 2012 NFL regular season concluded, the New York Jets can now look ahead to see what the 2013 regular season schedule will be and which opponents will be on tap for next season.

Even with a recent report that Jets quarterback Tim Tebow could end up with the Jacksonville Jaguars next season, Arthur Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com says it’s probably a stretch to believe that he’ll be a Jaguar in 2013.
After doing a little digging, we hear that categorizing his arrival in Jacksonville after the season as imminent is a major stretch.

As 2012 comes to an end, I look at the Buffalo Bills season as one that was lost. Their schedule was more challenging than expected, but the team still had the potential to win 9-10 games. Unfortunately poor coaching and quarterback play, as well as an inconsistent defense cost the Bills any chance they had of returning to the postseason.
I’ve enjoyed this article and I’m sure...
