Sunday an elimination game?

Mathematically Sunday’s game between the Bills and Jets is being viewed by outside observers as an elimination game in terms of playoff contention. What do those directly involved in the game think?

With both teams at 5-5 and neither likely to catch the Patriots for the division title, it’s about the Wild Card race for the Jets and Bills. Here’s what Jets head coach Rex Ryan thinks.

“I don’t know if its win or go home, but it’s about as close as you can get to that,” he said. “Both teams know it, obviously Buffalo knows that and we know that. So no team is going to deny that fact.”

Bills vet Chris Kelsay also knows whichever team drops this one is going to make themselves a supreme long shot for the postseason.

“There are a handful of teams competing for the last Wild Cart spot and we’re two of them,” said Kelsay. “So obviously if you get beat by these guys, one they’ve swept us and two it looks like our chances for the playoffs are pretty slim. So it’s a huge game for us.”
