Week 9 is in the books, and the NFL is getting more and more interesting. Many top teams are coming off byes, and the bad teams aren’t playing well. Despite this, a few teams who were originally thought of as bad are now righting ship and are back in the hunt. If you missed our weekly Power Rankings, check them out right here. With so many intriguing matchups, let’s get right into our Week 10 game-by-game predictions.
Don’t agree with me? Let me know on Twitter @HoweNFL.
Last Week’s Record: 8-5
Season Record: 88-44
Teams with byes: Atlanta Falcons, Indianapolis Colts, San Diego Chargers, San Francisco 49ers
With that, let’s get into my first prediction: Thursday night’s matchup between the the Buffalo Bills and the New York Jets. Both of these AFC East teams have been pretty good so far, but the Jets have been the better team to date. That being said, the Bills’ return to health after a much-needed bye was evident in last week’s win. This will be a close game that will go a long way in determining whether one of these two teams will be able to compete for the AFC Wild Card.

Buffalo Bills (4-4) at New York Jets (5-3)

Tyrod Taylor has returned to action, and the Bills are a better team because of it. The Jets have struggled to run the ball over the past two weeks, barely edging the Jacksonville Jaguars, while the Bills have pounded the rock with ease. Rex Ryan’s trolling of his former team is hilarious, but it will be even more glorious when his Bills come out with the win on Sunday.
