New York Jets will take on Buffalo Bills in Sunday’s action of the NFL 2021 Week 10. The home side cannot be content with its performances this season, and they should try to improve the form. The visitors fight for the post-season spot, but they haven’t played well lately.
New York has been one of the weakest NFL sides so far in the season, and they have been struggling defensively. However, they showed signs of improvement, and they should try to celebrate a couple of more wins. On the other hand, Buffalo’s form is declining, and they look forward to bouncing back. The away side still controls its fate, but they should stabilize their game.
New York Jets – Are they capable of surprising the rivals?
The Jets are one of the two worst teams in the AFC East, as they are at a 2-6 record at the moment. The playoffs battle was never on the cards, and the question was only around the number of wins they could collect this season. Despite their good offensive display, New York goes to this game after a 45-30 defeat against the Colts on the road. A backup quarterback Josh Johnson passed for 317 yards in that game, with three touchdowns and an interception. However, poor defending in the 2nd and 3rd quarter cost them a better chance of securing a positive result.
New York’s starting QB Zach Wilson has thrown for 1,168 yards this season, with four TDs and nine interceptions, while he was sacked 19 times. Michael Carter has been the best rusher for the Jets with 328 yards and three touchdowns, while Ty Johnson is another rusher with 100+ yards this season. Corey Davis leads New York in the receiving game with 349 yards and four scores, while Michael Carter, Keelan Cole, Jamison Crowder, Elijah Moore, and Ty Johnson generated 200+ receiving yards each. Defensively, C.J. Mosley has been the best tackler with 65, while Quinnen Williams logged a team-high 4.5 tackles.
Expected Line-Up (Offense): Michael Carter, Keelan Cole, Jamison Crowder, Elijah Moore, Ryan Griffin, George Fant, Alijah Vera-Tucker, Connor McGovern, Greg Van Roten, Morgan Moses
Expected Line-Up (Defense): John Franklin-Myers, Sheldon Rankins, Quinnen Williams, Shaq Lawson, Del’Shawn Phillips, C.J. Mosley, Quincy Williams, Brandin Echols, Ashtyn Davis, Sharrod Neasman, Bryce Hall
Quarter Back: Josh Johnson

Buffalo Bills – Will they stabilize their form?
The Bills still sit on the top of the AFC East, but they need to do a lot of work to secure pole position. They are just one win ahead of the in-form Patriots, while they lost two times on the previous three occasions. Buffalo heads to this match after losing to the Jaguars on the road in a very “ugly” contest. Despite allowing only nine points to the opponents, the Bills scored just six. Buffalo generated 301 yards in the offense but also turned the ball over three times. Josh Allen passed for 264 yards on 31-47 but failed to score.
Buffalo’s starting quarterback has gone 2,236 yards through the air this season, with 17 touchdowns and five interceptions. He also contributed a lot in the ground game and combined for 674 rushing yards with Devin Singletary, while Zack Moss rushed for 233 yards. Stefon Diggs leads the receiving corps with 588 yards and three TDs, while Emmanuel Sanders added 478 receiving yards and four scores. Cole Beasley is another player with 400+receiving yards. On the other hand, Tremaine Edmunds has been the most dominant defender with 54 total tackles, while Mario Addison and Greg Rousseau combined for six sacks.
Expected Line-Up (Offense): Devin Singletary, Stefon Diggs, Emmanuel Sanders, Cole Beasley, Tommy Sweeney, Reggie Gilliam, Dion Dawkins, Ike Boettger, Mitch Morse, Daryl Williams, Tommy Doyle
Expected Line-Up (Defense): Greg Rousseau, Ed Oliver, Star Lotulelei, Jerry Hughes, Matt Milano, Tremaine Edmunds, A.J. Klein, Tre’Davious White, Jordan Poyer, Micah Hyde, Levi Wallace
Quarter Back: Josh Allen

Expert Pick #1 – Under 47.5 @-110
Although they did well against the Colts in the offense, the Jets still have issues in the final third. They will be without Zach Wilson and Mike White on the quarterback and might struggle to drive the ball. On the other hand, the Bills haven’t been impressive, and my first pick for this one will be the Under.
Expert Pick #2 – New York Jets +13 @-110
New York hasn’t been that bad on the home ground, as they celebrated twice and lost only one game. Since Buffalo hasn’t impressed in the past few weeks, I think the double-digit spread brings value for backing the hosts. Therefore, I’m taking the Jets ATS as my second bet.
Expert Pick #3 – Bills & Under 52.5 @-128
Nevertheless, I still believe the Bills can see off their opponents in this clash. They need a victory to stabilize the form and stay on the top of the AFC East. If we combine the moneyline and increase the totals margin, we can count on decent odds. That’s why I’m going to take the Bills & Under 52.5 as the third pick,
