The Buffalo Bills will give another quarterback a chance, their newly signed Matt Barkley will have a chance to compete against the New York Jets.
Barkley in his career has eight touchdowns and 18 interceptions. If you’re looking for a Nathan Peterman upgrade, this probably isn’t one. While the Bills wait out the healing process for Josh Allen, this may be the best they have to offer.
On the other side of the football is quarterback Josh McCown, a player that’s taken on a leadership role with the Jets. He will be starting Sunday while Sam Darnold nurses an injury.
Here are a few things to watch for in Sunday’s upcoming matchup:
Tremaine Edmunds returns:
Edmunds has clearly been a fan favorite of Bills Mafia thus far. His return should help maintain the defense’s great play. This matchup in particular could be a game that the defense could actually win, as long as Barkley can avoid turning the ball over.
Jets offensive line:
The 39-year old McCown will need his protection. The Bills defense is among the best in the NFL at applying pressure to the quarterback. If the Jets expect any success this weekend, it will have to begin and end with their offensive line.
By no means is either team considered talented at the NFL level on offense. Bills Stephen Haushka and the Jets Josh Myers may be in for a duel if neither team can find the endzone.
