The run game can be Sam Darnold’s best friend in his first came back since separating his throwing shoulder three weeks ago. Jets running backs managed just 3.3 yards per carry in their season-opening loss at Buffalo. The non-existent ground attack contributed to the lopsided time-of-possession advantage for the Bills, who held the ball for more than 41 minutes.
The Buffalo Bills currently have a two-and-a-half-game lead on the Patriots, and they are playing the 0-6 New York Jets this weekend, which means they are clearly going to win. If the Patriots win this weekend, they will still only be 3-3, but the pressure goes to the Bills to win the two teams’ matchup next weekend. A victory in Buffalo, meanwhile, would then send the Patriots to 4-3 and the Bills to 5-3.
These are three key matchups to watch for the Buffalo Bills in Week 7 against the New York Jets. While this may not be the high-profile matchup the Buffalo Bills have had in recent weeks against the Tennessee Titans and Kansas City Chiefs, this is a pivotal game for this team in Week 7. The Bills have struggled the past two weeks and they now enter a game that is a must-win against the New York Jets.
