The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets will conclude their disappointing seasons Sunday afternoon when they meet in Orchard Park, N.Y. This game will have far more impact on April's draft than it will on the 2012 season, but the winner of this one will finish third in the AFC East.
For the Jets, Mark Sanchez will return to the starting lineup. Greg McElroy was diagnosed with concussion symptoms on Thursday and Tim Tebow doesn't seem to be an option, so head coach Rex Ryan has decided to give Jets fans one more look at the "Sanchise." It could well be the last time Jets fans see any of Tebow, Ryan or Sanchez as Jets.
Bills fans may have a similar feeling, as Chan Gailey will likely be coaching his last game for the team. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has also been disappointing this year, though it seems a bit less likely that he will be run out of town. In addition, the Bills have a pair of impending free agents in Andy Levitre and Jairus Byrd who could possibly be playing their final games for the Bills.
The game did not sell out and will not be televised locally in the Buffalo area.
