OUR PREDICTION: The Jets will have difficulty scoring in this matchup, even against a Bills defense that is suspect. Josh McCown played only three series in preseason and Jermaine Kearse and Jeremy Kerley just arrived this week. Rookie tight end Jordan Leggett is also out, which means McCown will be throwing to Robbie Anderson and a slew of players that may or may not know the offense. On the other side, the Bills' first-team defense allowed a total of nine points on 16 opponent possessions. It was only preseason, but it was an impressive showing by an embattled group. I'll be betting against the Jets all season and even though eight points is a lot to lay on a Bills team that could only win 4-5 games this season, I'm not going to change my philosophy to fade New York.
