Even with the way their season has gone, it's somewhat surprising to see the Bills favored against the Jets. Buffalo is 5-10, and in the game between these teams way back in Week 1, the Jets rolled to a 48-28 victory. While New York has a two-game losing streak, Buffalo has a three-game losing streak, with losses to the St. Louis Rams and Miami Dolphins, neither of whom are world-beaters. But this is a much different Jets team than the one that the Bills played way back in September: Greg McElroy is the starting quarterback, and last week against the San Diego Chargers, the offensive line allowed 11 sacks. Since a bye week halfway through the season, the Jets have only scored 20 points once.
With that in mind, Buffalo is favored by 3 1/2 points heading into Sunday's game. The Jets have won six straight against Buffalo and five out of six against the spread, but both teams are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games.
