This Thursday night on the NFL Network the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills will square off to start Week 13 of the NFL season. Both of these teams have underachieved a little bit to this point in the season, but it should be a good contest between them. As far as Free NFL Picks go the New York Jets come in as the favorites in this one, but the Bills have been playing a bit better lately. What should we expect on Thursday night football?
The big story for Buffalo is the emergence of T.O. again. He has really turned it on the last two weeks, highlighted by a 98 yard touchdown catch two weeks ago. His play has been one of the big reasons that Buffalo is playing better. Ryan Fitzpatrick hasn’t done too badly either lately. Their run defense, on the other hand, has been downright bad. They will have their hands full against a strong running back in Thomas Jones.
The Jets, on the other hand, were the darlings of the NFL early in the season. They were undefeated for a few weeks and went up against the also undefeated New Orleans Saints. The Saints put them in their place in that one, and both of their seasons have went in opposite directions since then.
The Saints are now blowing out the Patriots, and the Jets are struggling to get by mediocre teams. The defense is still pretty good, but the offense has been a little up-and-down lately. Their star cornerback Darrelle Revis had a great game last week with two interceptions.
Expect this one to be a good AFC East division matchup. It will most likely go down to the wire, and expect the running game for the Jets to be the difference. If they can keep Thomas Jones going they should win the game.
