It is seldom good when an NFL team has a game Thanksgiving weekend consider a must win. That is just the position the Jets have put themselves into this year. Because of their uneven play, they have virtually eliminated any margin for error the rest of the way. Guaranteeing the Playoffs quite possibly means winning out.

Today they could not have a better opponent on paper to get healthy against. As bad as things have been for the Jets lately, they have been even worse for the Bills. Buffalo has not played a competitive game since Gang Green blew them out in Orchard Park three weeks ago. To make matters worse, Buffalo's most productive offensive player was just lost for the year this week. The Jets also had extra time to lick their wounds and prepare after playing a Thursday night contest last week. Plus the Jets have won their last three against the Bills handily. Of course, games are not played on paper, and New York has a tendency to struggle in these games.

Leave your thoughts below. Do not leave a link to an illegal broadcast of the game or prepare to face our wrath.
