Remember last season when the Bills got off to that red hot start, only to flop like a pancake the second half of the season? They hope to get off to another fast start, but have a tough matchup in week one against the Jets in New Jersey.
The Bills have to find a way to test the Jets run D, and that will be up to the combo of Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller. If those two can get yards in chunks, it will open the pass game for Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Look Sunday for the status of Stevie Johnson, who may miss the game for the Bills. If he’s out, the Bills have to get some production from Donald Jones and David Nelson.
Mark Sanchez also needs to prove something, as looking over his shoulder, Tim Tebow is just waiting for his shot, and that could start Sunday if Sanchez gets harassed by the Bills defense.
Look for a low scoring game that could come down to a big play on special teams. In that respect, it will be a good day for New York, who has the edge in that department.
The Bills can certainly score the upset with a couple big plays, but in the end, the Jets will find a way to break their offensive drought that has plagued them all preseason to get a week one win.
