NFL picks and predictions, Week 11: Jets vs. Bills 2013

Rich Schultz

E.J. Manuel and Geno Smith were the top two quarterbacks taken in the 2013 draft, with Smith winning their first matchup. Can Manuel take Round Two?

For a long time, people thought that Geno Smith would be the first quarterback selected in the 2013 NFL Draft. It took many by surprise when the Buffalo Bills took the first QB and that player was not Smith, but Florida State's E.J. Manuel. The New York Jets were the next to take a quarterback, and Smith was their man.

Now 10 weeks into the NFL season, Smith and Manuel have each enjoyed moderate success. Which QB will be the most successful this Sunday in Buffalo, most importantly, by getting the win?

Matt Ufford offers you fantasy advice on Riley Cooper, Colin Kaepernick, Bills running backs and more.

The first meeting took place took place Week 3 in New York. Tied at 20 with just over nine minutes left in the game, Smith hit receiver Santonio Holmes for a 69-yard touchdown to give New York the lead. Manuel would get the ball back four more times, but never came close to tying it up and forcing overtime.

How will part two go?

Most experts seem to be going with the 5-4 Jets, even if the game is coming on the road.

Here at SBNation, five of six panel members are picking New York to win in Buffalo. Not even a single expert at CBS Sports, out of eight panelists, are picking the Bills to win. This, despite the fact that the Jets are 1-3 on the road this year.

Only a couple of experts at ESPN, including Adam Schefter, are going with Buffalo at home. Over at Yahoo! Sports, the two experts are split, but the fans think the Jets will take it.
