Week 8: at New York Jets
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Kyle Orton has won two our of the first three games he's led the Bills, and he's tossed two TDs per game over the past two contests, with 31/43 for 283 yards passing, two TDs and one interception at Minnesota last week, and 24/38 for 299 yards, two TDs and one interception vs. New England two weeks ago. Orton has also been over or very near 300 yards passing in each game so far. Sammy Watkins has come alive over the 'Orton weeks', with a monster 14 targets for 9/122/2 receiving during the win vs. Minnesota last Sunday - it was a nice bounce back from the three targets for 2/27/0 we saw at New England two weeks back. Right now, the Bills' passing attack is on a strong roll. The Jets' secondary makes most quarterbacks look good - Tom Brady was no exception last week with 20/37 for 260 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions, with one sack taken for -1 yard. Two games back Peyton Manning thumped the Jets for 22/33 for 221 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -16 yards. To date, the Jets have averaged 238.6 net passing yards allowed per game (16th in the NFL), but they are dead last in passing TDs given away, with 18 handed over vs. a league-worst one interception generated. The Jets are tied for sixth in the NFL with 20 sacks to their credit, but the secondary is, frankly, awful. Advantage, Orton and Watkins. Also, the rushing matchup is pretty tough, so look for Orton to have to carry the load while the Bills break in a batch of backup running backs with Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller on the shelf for the foreseeable future due to injuries.
