Buffalo Bills vs New York Jets preview: Gang Green looks to upset in-state rival in AFC East battle

The New York Jets return from a 10-day layoff as they take on the Buffalo Bills at MetLife Stadium.

New York fell to 2-6 with a 45-30 loss to Indianapolis on November 4th while Buffalo failed to score a touchdown in a 9-6 defeat to the Jacksonville Jaguars last Sunday.

  • Injury report

The Bills will be without linebacker Tremaine Edmunds as he has a hamstring injury. Running back Zack Moss is questionable with a concussion. Buffalo has six players, including wide receiver Cole Beasley who will play.

Zach Wilson is again listed as doubtful for the Jets with a knee injury while defensive lineman Chuma Edoga is also doubftul with a knee issue. Tevin Coleman (hamstring), Shaq Lawson (hamstring), Corey Davis (hip) and Alijah Vera-Tucker (toe) are all questionable.

  • Players to watch

Josh Allen (Buffalo)

In leading the Bills to the AFC Championship Game last year, he put himself in the conversation among the elite quarterbacks in the NFL. With 2,236 yards and 17 touchdowns in leading Buffalo to a 5-3 record so far, he's done nothing to dispel that theory.

Mike White (New York Jets)

You couldn't have run the gamut more than the Jets' newest sensation has. He set multiple NFL records in his first start when New York came from behind to defeat Cincinnati but was hurt in the loss to Indianapolis. Healthy again, he'll get to show everyone if he can build on the performance he had against the Bengals.
