Buffalo was eliminated from playoff contention in the AFC last week on an overtime field goal by the arch rival Miami Dolphins. The Bills then swiftly saw head coach Rex Ryan fired the day after Christmas in favor of recently promoted offensive coordinator Anthony Lynn as the interim. Lynn will go with E.J. Manuel at starting quarterback over the benched Tyrod Taylor (Why?).
New York has had a horrid season in 2016. After going 10-6 and just missing the AFC Playoffs in 2015, the Jets have bottomed out to an atrocious 4-11. The Jets were boat raced by the arch rival New England Patriots to the tune of 41-3 in Week 16.
