The Bills have made a significant move following their narrow 24-22 loss to the Broncos on Monday night. Offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey has been relieved of his duties after a game that saw the Bills turn the ball over four times (two interceptions and two fumbles) and possess it for only 22 minutes and 39 seconds. Despite these challenges, the Bills managed to outgain the Broncos 369-300 and scored two touchdowns.
Looking ahead, the Bills are set to face the Jets on Sunday. The Jets have struggled offensively, not scoring a single touchdown since the first quarter of the Giants game on October 29. Their recent losses to the Chargers and Raiders, two teams previously near the bottom of the defensive rankings, have raised concerns.
In contrast to the Bills’ decision to let go of Dorsey, Jets head coach Robert Saleh has maintained his support for play-caller Nathaniel Hackett and quarterback Zach Wilson. The Jets, however, are not without their internal challenges, as evidenced by a players-only meeting during the week, signaling a commitment to taking responsibility for on-field issues.
When these teams met on opening night, the Jets displayed resilience, securing a victory in overtime despite facing adversity after a significant injury to Aaron Rodgers. However, both teams currently find themselves in desperate situations, with the Bills experiencing inconsistency in their recent performances.
As for other matchups, the Giants are given a favorable +9.5 spread against the COMMANDERS. Despite a blowout loss to the Cowboys, the Giants showcased potential in a late-game drive led by quarterback Tommy DeVito. The author believes the Commanders’ narrow margins in their wins make them vulnerable.
In the Lions vs. Bears game, the Lions are favored at -7.5, with the line dropping from 10 following the announcement that Justin Fields would start for the Bears. The author expresses confidence in the Lions’ ability to capitalize on their playmakers against Fields.
The article includes several other game predictions, emphasizing the Chargers over the Packers, Raiders over the Dolphins, Cowboys over the Panthers, Titans over the Jaguars, Cardinals over the Texans, 49ers over the Buccaneers, Rams over the Seahawks, and the Chiefs over the Eagles.
