Week 8: vs Buffalo Bills

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Geno Smith avoided making 'the big mistake(s)' last week, with 20/34 for 226 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown (he did fumble once, but the Jets retained possession). He has two straight games with more TD passes than turnovers, which is helping open up the running game for Chris Ivory and Chris Johnson (teams have to respect the Jets' passing game at least a little as of Week 8). The usual suspects saw Smith's passes last week; seven targets for 4/65/0 receiving went to Eric Decker, four for 3/50/1 landed in Jeff Cumberland's arms; five for 2/29/0 went to Jeremy Kerley; and five for 3/22/0 went to Jace Amaro. The Jets aren't hard to predict, but at least Smith did enough to scare the Patriots' fans last week. The Bills' pass D is ranked first in the NFL with 24 sacks, while the Jets have given up 18 (tied for 25th in the NFL) - it's a fair bet that Smith will have guys in his face often during the game in New York this weekend. Buffalo averages 247.6 net passing yards given up per game, with 12 passing TDs given up vs. eight interceptions generated so far (tied for third in the NFL). This is an attacking, gambling secondary and front seven. Teddy Bridgewater was sacked five times for -39 yards and intercepted twice last weekend (15/26 for 118 yards passing and one TD thrown) - Tom Brady bombed this unit for 27/37 yielding 346 net passing yards, four TDs and zero interceptions two weeks ago, while being sacked twice for -15 yards. Smith is in for a tough divisional fight this weekend, and the Bills' pass-rushing prowess lines up well against the Jets' weak pass blocking. Advantage, Buffalo.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs SD (8 / 19 / 47 / 0 / 0 pass, 2 / 14 / 0 rush)

Michael Vick replaced Geno Smith after halftime, but the results weren't much better. Vick, who is now 34-years-old, looked slow in the pocket and alike Smith, was unable to quickly go through his progressions. Vick was sacked on his first pass attempt and didn't lead New York's offense into San Diego territory until midway through the fourth quarter. Vick threw for 34 of his 47 passing yards late in the fourth quarter when San Diego played deep zone coverage and held a 31-0 advantage. Vick was unable to generate any offense when the game still relatively close after halftime. After the game, Rex Ryan announced that Smith would start next week's game against Denver.Game flow continues to work against Chris Ivory. New York's defense was unable to stop Philip Rivers and New York's passing attack was unable to generate many positive plays. Therefore, New York trailed by double digits for nearly the entire game. Ivory was able to develop a rhythm in the fourth quarter when he parlayed three carries into 24 yards, but the runs came against relaxed defensive fronts. Chris Johnson lost a fumble in the second quarter, which further cemented Ivory's billing as New York's top running back.
