Bet on the NFL In a battle of the AFC East, the second place New York Jets take on the last place Buffalo Bills.
Sportsbook record the Jets currently hold a 10-5 record going into the final week of the 2010 NFL season, while the Bills, the worst team in all of the NFL, have an embarrassing 4-11 record this season. Soon to be 4-12.
The Jets are coming off a close loss last weekend against the Chicago Bears at 34-38. The loss was not the only bad news the Jets faced from the holiday weekend, the team was stranded in Chicago an extra day because of the blizzard that crippled much of the Northeast, but flew to Stewart International Airport in Newburgh, N.Y., Monday night rather than spend another night away from home. The travel-weary Jets then took a 90-minute bus ride back to their facility in Florham Park, N.J., where they arrived around 11:30PM. But travel misery aside, there is some good news coming out of the Jets camp this week, at least for Mark Sanchez, as coach Rex Ryan has not yet ruled out playing him against this Bills this weekend. Sanchez seemed fine in the Jets' 38-34 loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday, after playing during most of last week's win over the Pittsburgh Steelers with a shoulder injury.
The second-year starter threw for 269 yards and a touchdown, completing 24 of 37 passes.
As for the Buffalo Bills, well just when you thought it could not get any worse, their Rookie, David Nelson is probably going to sit out on their last game of the season. Nelson was hurt in the second quarter of a 34-3 loss to New England a day earlier. He was stretched out attempting to make a catch over the middle when he was sandwiched by hits from linebacker Jerod Mayo and safety Jarrad Page. When betting on football note that apparently it will take a miracle to get him on the field this weekend, according to Chan Gailey. After the Bills gave up their 15th consecutive loss to the New England Patriots last weekend, they allowed the Pats to secure their seventh division title in only eight seasons.
