Buffalo @ New York Jets
This will be a battle of the rookie QBs but it will be the Jets defense that wins the game. The Jets defense is giving up just 241 yds/game, second in the NFL. I like what is happening in Buffalo but I just don’t believe rookie QB E.J. Manuel and the rest of the Bills offense are ready to defeat a very strong defense. The Jets will win at home and be 2-0 at home.
