ESPN NFL analyst and former Chiefs and Jets head coach Herm Edwards was asked to pick his AFC Wild Card favorite and for him it came down to two teams, the Jets and the Bills.
Edwards picked the Bills to finish ahead of the Jets in the AFC East.
“This year in the offseason they did a great job of acquiring free agents,” said Edwards of Buffalo. “I’m talking about Mario Williams and Mark Anderson. That will allow them to get to the quarterback. This offense is a very productive offense. Fitzpatrick is more like a point guard in basketball, he distributes the football. They will battle the Jets in my opinion as a Wild Card team in this division. I think New England is still good enough to win the division. I think the Bills have a chance with their schedule to win nine games and maybe get into the playoffs.
“I think the Bills have an edge offensively in this sense, they’ve been together, the Jets have a new coordinator and a new system. They want to ground and pound and that’s fine, but you still have to be able to throw the football. The Bills can throw the ball. They put you in space, they run a lot of shotgun spread offense and have skill players that can catch and run. Their offense is a little ahead of the Jets offense right now.”
