Bills vs. Jets storylines to watch

The Buffalo Bills (6-1) hold a 1.5 game lead over the New York Jets (5-3) in the AFC East, and Sunday will mark the first time these teams have met this year. Among the top storylines to watch: with how well Buffalo gets after the quarterback, this is shaping up to be a poor matchup for Jets quarterback Zach Wilson, who is coming off a three-interception performance in a loss to the New England Patriots. Plus, how Josh Allen has enjoyed terrific success when playing the Jets, how rookie CB Sauce Gardner will present a tough matchup going up against WR Stefon Diggs, how both these defenses are playing at a high level thanks to success getting after the quarterback from their defensive line, and more.

Von Miller ankle injury of concern

Well, this is concerning. Heading into Sunday’s Week 9 game at the New York Jets, the Bills have a growing list of injured players on the defensive side of the ball. The latest banged-up Bill? Pass rusher Von Miller, who missed Thursday’s practice with an ankle injury and joins All-Pro safety Jordan Poyer (elbow) and linebacker Matt Milano (oblique) as key members of the defense dealing with ailments.
