Week 2 of the 2016 NFL Season kicks off tonight in New York as the Buffalo Bills host their division foes the New York Jets. Both the Jets and Bills come into tonights meeting with a record of (0-1) looking to capture their first win of the young 2016 NFL season.

Tonight’s game could be viewed as a must win for both teams with only 12 percent of teams to start the year off (0-2) have made the NFL playoffs during that season. The Bills owned the Jets during the 2015 NFL season defeating them twice last season. On top of that, Jets QB Ryan Fitzpatrick is (1-8) against Rex Ryan coached teams.

I’m expecting the Jets to come out strong tonight and beat the Bills in a thriller. The Bills were one of my sleeper teams this season but injuries may stop them from reaching their full potential. The Jets are a better overall team than the Bills and I believe it will show tonight on Thursday night football.

Look for Jets running back Matt Forte to have a huge night for the Jets and his fantasy football owners. Forte will rush and receive for over a total of 150 yards tonight including two touchdowns. The Jets defense has been on fire to start the season, its time for the Jets offense to match their efforts.

The Bills could surprise me and make this a good game but I believe injuries will be too much for the Bills to overcome. Tyrod Taylor will be under pressure all night long and if WR Sammy Watkins isn’t 100 percent, his weapons on the field will be limited. The Bills may be hitting the panic button after tonight.

JETS 37  BILLS 30
