The New York Jets will travel to Buffalo to face off against the Bills in a Week 2 Thursday Night Football clash. This matchup has all the makings of a hard-hitting, fiercely competitive, low-scoring affair. Both of these AFC East teams are desperate for a win, as they both dropped their Week 1 matchups. It might not sound too bad on paper, but an 0-2 start is practically a death sentence to a team’s playoff hopes in the NFL.

In the Bills’ Week 1 loss, they were beaten 13-7 in Baltimore by the Ravens in a very sloppy performance. The Bills only mustered 160 yards of total offense, as quarterback Tyrod Taylor (111 passing yards), running back LeSean McCoy (58 rushing yards), and wide receiver Sammy Watkins (43 receiving yards) all struggled. And just when things looked like they couldn’t possibly get any worse for Buffalo’s anemic offense, it was announced that Watkins could miss several games due to a foot injury.

In the Jets’ Week 1 loss, they played the Bengals extremely tough, but they ultimately couldn’t secure a win in their home opener. Mike Nugent hit a 47-yard field goal with 54 seconds left in the 4th quarter to give the Bengals a 23-22 lead. That would end up being the final score, as Ryan Fitzpatrick threw an interception on the Jets’ ensuing drive.

Rex Ryan had the number of his former team last season, as the Bills went 2-0 against the Jets, including keeping them out of the playoffs with a 22-17 Week 17 win. Here’s how you can watch the Jets try to get revenge on that foot-loving maniac.
