The NY Jets are hours away from what is arguably the team's most important game of the season to date. The Jets will take on the Buffalo Bills in a Week 11 matchup that might very well determine the fate of both teams' seasons.
The Jets enter this game with a 4-5 record, still reeling after consecutive losses to the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders. To say they're desperate for a win today would be an understatement.
With Aaron Rodgers' potential return still looming, the Jets need to string together a couple of wins to make Rodgers' unprecedented recovery worthwhile. If they're out of playoff contention in a few weeks, none of what Rodgers has done over the last couple of months will matter.
As for the Bills, they find themselves at a crossroads after losing three of their last four games. The 5-5 Bills are fighting to salvage what has been a wholly disappointing season, and they'll do so against the team that miraculously defeated them in Week 1.
Both the Jets and Bills are nursing a few injuries entering this game. For the Jets, five players have already been ruled out, and an additional three are listed as questionable.
Offensive tackle Duane Brown (shoulder), linebacker Sam Eguavoen (hip), linebacker Chazz Surratt (ankle), offensive lineman Billy Turner (finger), and tight end Kenny Yeboah (hamstring) are all OUT with injuries.
Wide receiver Garrett Wilson (elbow), defensive end Will McDonald (ankle), and cornerback Michael Carter II (hamstring) are all listed as questionable. The expectation is that all three players will be active.
As for the Bills, defensive tackle Jordan Phillips is questionable with a knee injury, and wide receiver Trent Sherfield is questionable with an ankle injury. Both players are expected to play.
