The Buffalo Bills (10-2) are on the road to take on the New York Jets (5-7) in week 14 of the Buffalo Fanatics Madden Sim. After a dominating victory over the Dolphins last week, the Bills are looking to improve their record to 11-2 on Sunday. Here are the keys to Sunday’s game.
Slowing down Bell
Le’Veon Bell has been one of the best running backs in the NFL this season. He’s rushed for 896 yards and ten touchdowns, all while averaging over five yards per carry. He’s also got over 300 yards receiving as he remains a dual-threat out of the backfield. The Bills will have to slow down Bell if they want to win on Sunday.
It’s been a tough third season for Sam Darnold. Through 12 games this season he’s thrown a whopping 16 interceptions to just 19 touchdowns. It’s been one of the reasons why this Jets team is just 5-7. If the Bills can force Darnold to add to that interception total, they should win on Sunday.
Stefon Diggs has a very favorable matchup for this game. The Jets have a very weak cornerback room, which he and John Brown, exposed Week 1. Now, 14 weeks later, Diggs and Josh Allen have much better chemistry and are clicking on all cylinders. Allen should look for his go-to-guy often on Sunday.
Allen and Singletary approach huge milestones
Allen and Devin Singletary are both approaching huge milestones for their young careers. Allen is just 71 yards away from passing for 4,000 yards and Singletary is just six yards away from rushing for 1,000 yards. Both milestones would be the first time in either of their careers of reaching these numbers. It goes to show how much this offense has improved in 2020.
Prediction: Bills: 31 Jets: 17
