The New York Jets may be on a two-game losing streak, but you'd never know it based on most of the predictions this week. Just about everyone is picking the Jets to beat the Buffalo Bills, who look to be a very similar team at quick glance. The reason? The Bills just lost leading rusher Fred Jackson, almost certainly for the season, and themselves are coming off three straight losses.
The folks over at Yahoo! have unanimously picked the Jets. All five of the prognosticators for CBS Sports like the Jets, too. Even at ESPN, where there are 10 picks, they are also throwing all their support behind the Jets.
Basically, if you're in a suicide pool where all you need to do is pick a winner, there's no other game out there in which the experts will be more supportive of your choice to pick the Jets. Don't get clever, follow their lead.
