Speed Option: Buffalo Bills look for revenge against New York Jets

The second of three straight AFC East games for the Bills

NFL: Buffalo Bills at New York Jets Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY Sports

The Bills have their second-straight AFC East game this weekend when they host the New York Jets at Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, NY. The Bills will be looking to get revenge on the Jets for their Week 9 loss, the game in which quarterback Josh Allen injured his elbow.

The biggest story in the Jets’ side of the Meadowlands is their change at quarterback. In Week 12, after a demoralizing loss to the New England Patriots, the coaching staff decided they had seen enough of Zach Wilson and named Mike White the starter. White has started the last two games for the Jets. They are 1-1 in those games, with a big win over the Chicago Bears and a close road loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

Jets head coach: Robert Saleh

Saleh is in his second season as the Jets’ head coach, his first NFL head-coaching job. He joined the Jets after four seasons as the defensive coordinator of the San Francisco 49ers. Saleh has a head-coaching record of 11-18 (0.379 W-L%).

Jets offensive coordinator: Mike LaFleur

Also coming over from the 49ers two seasons ago is Mike LaFleur, the offensive coordinator of the Jets. LaFleur spent four seasons with the Niners, all as their passing game coordinator. The Jets’ offense is ranked 18th in points per game and 18th in yards per game.

Jets defensive coordinator: Jeff Ulbrich

Like Saleh and LaFleur, defensive coordinator Jeff Ulbrich has been with the Jets since 2021. Unlike those two, he did not come from the Niners’ organization. Instead, Ulbrich came from the Atlanta Falcons, where he was the linebackers coach for six seasons, with a stint as interim defensive coordinator toward the end of that tenure. The Jets’ defense is ranked sixth in points per game against, and fourth in yards per game allowed.
