The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets meet at 4:25 p.m. EST at Highmark Stadium in a Week 18 game the NFL flexed out of the early time slot and into the afternoon slate. Thanks to a recent three-game winning streak, the Buffalo Bills have regained control of the AFC East. Heading into Sunday’s regular-season finale, it all comes down to this: If Buffalo wants to reign supreme over their AFC East foes for a second consecutive season and guarantee themselves of at least one home playoff game in Western New York, the Bills need to either defeat the Jets (4-12) or hope for the Miami Dolphins (8-8) to knock off the New England Patriots (10-6) for a second time this year.
Sunday’s matchup will be the 123rd meeting all-time between these teams. Buffalo leads the all-time series 66-56 and has won four of the last five matchups with the Jets, including 45-17 in Week 10. The Bills are looking for their second straight season sweep of the Jets. This will be their first time facing rookie quarterback Zach Wilson, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft.
Buffalo is listed as a 16-point favorite at home vs. the Jets. The Bills will be wearing their blue jerseys with white pants and white helmet. Here are all the ways to catch Sunday’s game from home:
