Bills At Jets: When Buffalo Has The Ball

(Sports Network) – The Bills have struggled to make a dent offensively, averaging just 18.4 points per game (27th in the NFL), 314.4 total yards per game (24th) and 202.2 passing yards per game (24th). They move up to the middle range in rushing with a 112.2 yards per game average that’s good for 15th. Contrarily, the Jets have been usually productive on defense, posting the 11th-best opposition scoring average (19.8 ppg) and leaping to the top 10 in total yards allowed (300.1 ypg), passing yards allowed (205.7 ypg) and rushing yards allowed (94.5 ypg).

Ryan Fitzpatrick needs two touchdown passes to become the third Bills quarterback to reach 25 in a season. He has a 95.4 rating in road games within the division in 2010. Running back Fred Jackson is 108 yards shy of become the seventh Buffalo runner to reach 1,000 in consecutive seasons. He’s also just 95 scrimmage yards away from 4,000 for his career. Wideout Steve Johnson reached 1,000 yards in a season for the first time in his career last week and is two touchdown catches from a franchise record. He’s scored in two of his last three games against the Jets.

On defense, Jets end Jason Taylor can add to his 20 career sacks against the Bills, his most against any opponent. Safety Dwight Lowery had a 20-yard interception return for a touchdown last week, his second of the season. End Shaun Ellis has three sacks in his last two games against Buffalo and linebacker Bryan Thomas looks for a fourth straight game with at least one.
