Buffalo Bills (5-2) vs New York Jets (4-3)1:00 PM EST, Ralph Wilson Stadium
Keys to Victory :: Key Matchups :: Gang Green Nation :: Video Preview
BUF Injury Report :: NYJ Injury Report
Bills inactives: DE Aaron Schobel, OG Brad Butler, WR Josh Reed, RB Xavier Omon, CB Ashton Youboty, OT Demetrius Bell, DT John McCargo, QB Gibran Hamdan (3rd QB).
Lineup Notes: Duke Preston to start at C, Jason Whittle to start at RG, Ryan Denney to start at DE and James Hardy to start at WR.

The 5-2 Buffalo Bills are set to take on the 4-3 New York Jets in a second straight AFC East battle for our beloved Bills. Let's make this simple: a Bills win re-establishes this team as the Patriots' main contender for a division crown, while a loss re-establishes this team among a vast pool of average NFL teams. In short, this is a must-win for the Bills - not only when it comes to division standings, but their psyche as well.

The Bills will be without a few key starters, but the Jets aren't completely healthy, either - QB Brett Favre has been banged up all season, and MLB David Harris will miss this one. Both teams are hurting, but both teams will be fighting tooth and nail for a win today. This is going to be a good one, folks.

The team needs you today. Even if you're not going to be at The Ralph, fire up your account and get ready to cheer on the Bills in this here game thread. It's game time, folks. GO BILLS!
