I think the bills are going to attack the jets with a lot of screens and draws to try to take advantage of young jets Dline and slower olbs.
I think the jets may be hard pressed to score 23 or 24 points though.
Landry and Bell are smart talented safeties, that will be able to sniff out screens/draws, and hold them to minimal damage. Maybe bills get away with it once...if at all.
Now the speedy Demario Davis missed some TC reps due to a hamstring injury. So i don't know how much, or what role, he will play against the Bills. But this guy is a smart aggressive player, that Rex has big plans for in various sub packages this season.
Don't under estimate the quickness and pursuit ability of young athletic studs like Wilkerson, Kenrick and Coples. Though I do admit that their overall inexperience can lead them to get schooled a bit in this first game. But I don't anticipate this to be a whole game problem. Not with vets like Pouha and DeVito expected to be fully healthy, and out there with the younger players.
And don't count on a good schooling being the case, when Jets play the Pats later on in the season. The more reps and experience this bunch gets...the more Beastie they're going to become.
I do expect this defense to put the Jets offense in good field position on more then one or two occasions. If not outright score themselves some points on D.
Yep...all the better teams might be vulnerable to an upset in a season's opening game...including the Pats.
I'm saying 23-13 Jets.
We'll see what happens.
