New York Jets at Buffalo Bills - 9/10/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills - 9/10/17 NFL Pick, Odds, and Prediction

If the optimal offensive philosophy - running backs Bilal Powell and Matt Forte methodically wearing down the defense and allowing quarterback Josh McCown to take shots downfield - is going to work, it will do so against the Bills, who allowed 4.5 yards per carry (tied for fifth-worst in the NFL) past year and traded cornerback Ronald Darby to the Philadelphia Eagles in August. The Bills are up against the New York Jets, who by many accounts, are going to struggle to rack up victories during the upcoming season. The moves to roll with young players - except for 38-year-old starting quarterback Josh McCown - prompted accusations the Jets were preparing to lose games to position themselves to win the No. 1 pick in the 2018 National Football League draft, when a bevy of talented quarterbacks are expected to be available. Those are the three things LeSean McCoy must succeed at every single game this season if the Bills are going to be successful, and he did just that.

Coach Todd Bowles set the tone for the season with his "One team, one goal" mantra.

The same can be said for Andre Holmes, Steven Hauschka, Micah Hyde, and Jordan Poyer, amongst others.

- Through the preseason, Bills fans were fairly frustrated with the performance of starting quarterback Tyrod Taylor and the overall showing from the first-team offense. Neither team is strong or deep at the wide receiver position. After final cuts and with the additions of Jermaine Kearse via trade and once and future Jet Jeremy Kerley, the production roughly tripled in all those categories, to 474 catches, 5,936 yards and 27 TDs. After said hypothetical three-and-out, the Jets would have the ball at (presumably) midfield with no timeouts and less time than before. We'll see if they show up on Sunday. The Bills, meanwhile, gashed the Jets' defense with chunk-yardage runs and passes. The consistently stellar half back will obviously be the key to the Bills winning this game. Facing a 4th and 8, most in attendance figured the Jets would go for it. Heading into his third season, Leonard Williams has been outstanding and has all the makings to become a defensive star for the New York Jets. After the Bills win he explained what happened. Running backs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell finished with 38 combined rushing yards on 13 carries. Remember, the Bills benched him for the Week 17 loss a year ago due to Rex Ryan getting fired and his "injury clause". Seven rookies dressed for the game, with wide receiver ArDarius Stewart making one nice play and linebacker Dylan Donahue getting some time on defense. The Bills hold the series lead, 59-53.

Buffalo has been busy transforming its roster through trades - receiver Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby were moved in separate deals on August 11 - to stockpile draft picks. Rookie cornerback Tre'Davious White will be put to the test early and often.
