While 'Tebowmania' took over New York City, the Jets offense quickly forgot how to score touchdowns.
This preseason, the Jets offense only scored one touchdown. It was a pass thrown by third-string quarterback Greg McElroy that finally ended the Jets preseason touchdown drought.
After the Jets acquired Tim Tebow in a trade with the Broncos, many speculated Mark Sanchez's job would be in jeopardy. In spite of this, both quarterbacks played so bad that a quarterback controversy wasn't possible.
This week, the Jets host the Buffalo Bills, a team who's defense is loaded with playmakers.
After signing defensive ends Mario Williams and Mark Anderson, the Bills head into MetLife stadium with a revamped pass rush.
With the pass rush intact, Buffalo's secondary has a chance to be a nightmare for opposing quarterbacks.
On Sunday, Mark Sanchez will be harassed by the Bills pass rush. This will often force him to check down and throw to his tight end, Dustin Keller.
Lucky for Keller and the Jets, Buffalo's defense is coming off a season where they allowed the most fantasy points to tight ends. This could very well be one of their biggest weaknesses this season, as well.
Many people may be shying away from Keller due to the Jets inefficiency at the quarterback position. While Buffalo may have added many playmakers this offseason, they still need to prove they can stop tight ends from reaching the end zone.
Start Keller this week and hope the Jets o-line can keep Sanchez up long enough to check down to his tight end.
