NY Jets vs. Buffalo Bills Prediction Week 18
Say what you want about this Jets team, but they've proven as the year has gone on that they're not going to just roll over. That was evident this past Sunday when they nearly pulled off a shocking upset over the Bucs.
Zach Wilson is improving every week and there's just enough fight left in this team to remain competitive, even against a very good Bills squad. But the talent gap will likely be too much to overcome.
For as much promise as the Jets showed on Sunday, their defense still struggled to contain Tom Brady and the Bucs offense. Their jobs won't get any easier against a Bills offense led by Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs.
It's not as if the Bills have nothing to play for either. A win here secures them the division title and a first-round home matchup. There's a lot on the line for them.
The Jets might keep this one close for a while, but expect the Bills to pull away in the end. Let's call it a 34-21 Bills victory. Jets cover the spread.
