The New York Jets and the Buffalo Bills will travel to Detroit this evening to play what will count as a "home" Bills game. Please join us to discuss this game or any of the other games in the NFL this past week.

Due to several feet of  snow fall in Buffalo this past week the game between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills was moved from yesterday to this evening. The game was also moved to Detroit where the Bills will be forced to play a "home" game at Ford Field. The Bills are of course coming off a loss to their division rivals the Miami Dolphins last week dropping them to 5 and 5. With the loss the Bills saw their chances of returning to the playoffs again after a 14 year absence slipping away. After posting one of his worst performances of the year against the Dolphins, starting quarterback Kyle Orton might also be looking over his shoulder where a desperate Bills staff is said to be considering returning to E.J. Manuel as the starter.

While the city of Buffalo digs out from an epic snow fall the New York Jets continue to try and climb out of the NFL basement having won only two games all season long. The Jets are coming off an upset win over the very hot and cold Pittsburgh Steelers last week. The Jets have looked a bit better since turning to Michael Vick as their starting QB. The Jets moved on from the ineffective Geno Smith after him throwing 3 picks in very short order in their last game versus the Bills. The Jets were able to partially neutralize the Steelers last week by putting up 150 yards on the ground. They will need to most likely continue that trend to have success against the Bills. The Bills are of course one of the better defenses against the rush, currently ranked 8th in the league.
