The New York Jets are set to host the Buffalo Bills for some AFC East action on Sunday afternoon.

Bills’ offensive woes anchoring struggles

It has been nothing short of a disappointing 2018 campaign for the Bills that has seen them fall to one of the worst records in the league through the first nine games with a 2-7 mark. This has seen them experience massive struggles offensively ranking as the least productive team in the league being last with 10.4 points per game and in passing. Meanwhile, they haven’t played much better with their running game being 23rd in the league. Buffalo has porous play under center that has heightened after rookie quarterback Josh Allen went out of the lineup with an elbow injury. The combined play of Derek Anderson and Nathan Peterman has been atrocious at best over the last few weeks. Peterman has continued to struggle under center as he has been a turnover machine in his brief NFL career with 12 interceptions in his eight games played in his first two years in the league. He had yet another discouraging outing last Sunday in the lopsided 41-9 loss to the Chicago Bears throwing three interceptions

The Bills may likely have Allen for Sunday’s game, but the fashion that they are playing offensively hasn’t been encouraging in any regard. Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy has had his shortcoming as week pacing himself for a career-worst campaign rushing for 267 yards along with 23 catches for 186 receiving yards while yet to score a touchdown. Meanwhile, the defense has more than held up their end of the bargain ranking 11th overall including 10th against the pass and 16th against the rush. It has been difficult for them to play at at a consistent level of the offensive struggles continue to mount, but they have had more than their own throughout the season. If the Bills hope to pull out a win, it will have to come from their defense putting together a stout performance against the Jets.

Defense looking to push Jets back in right direction

The 2018 campaign has had its fair share of ups and downs for the Jets that has seen him show promising moments while also making it clear the team is on the rebuild. This has been clearly exemplified by rookie quarterback Sam Darnold with his struggles with consistency. He has thrown 14 interceptions while throwing multiple interceptions four this time season and being picked off at least three times twice in the last three weeks. Darnold’s struggles throwing the ball shows just how difficult it has been for the team to find any consistent success as the season has rolled along. He is also out for this week’s game due to a foot sprain that will put Josh McCown into action against the Bills. This change under center could provide more stability in terms of taking care of the ball, which could bode well against Buffalo.

This will mark McCown’s first appearance this season, which he is taking over an offense that ranks 22nd second with 22.0 points per contest along with being 28th in passing game 16th in rushing. Running back Isaiah Crowell has been a dependable option in the backfield rushing for 533 yards with five touchdowns so far this season, which include a career-high 219 rushing yards and a touchdown against the Denver Broncos. New York has had steady play defensively ranking 16th allowing 23.7 points per game, which could be the key to them getting back on track against the Bills struggling offense. This may be the matchup that New York needs in order to snap their three-game losing streak and build toward a strong finish in the second half of the year.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet

Regardless if Allen returns to the fold or not, it’s hard to trust the Bills on any given week due to their lack of effectiveness offensively. This makes the Jets a strong play, especially for their defense to set the tone and shift the game quickly in their favor. It has the makes for New York to bounce back from their recent struggles.

Prediction: New York -9

Full-Game Total Pick

This game should turn out to be more of a defensive battle on both sides. The Bills possess the league’s least productive offense. Meanwhile, the Jets will be without the services of Darnold for the contest. The under is also 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these teams.

Prediction: Under 36.5
