NFL Week 9 2017: Thursday Night Football

It’s going to be an AFC East battling kind of Thursday night

An AFC East matchup will light up the field and television tonight as we engage on another Thursday Night Football adventure. We never know what kind of entertainment we are going to get, as these Thursday games are unpredictable, but it sure is still fun.

The Jets take on the Bills at 8:25 p.m. ET in East Rutherford, New Jersey at MetLife Stadium and can be watched on NFL Network.

The AFC East has been a pretty competitive division this season as opposed to most and has had some surprising performances this season so far. The Jets, though not a good team, have already exceeded expectations, while the Bills have been wheeling and dealing both on the field and off, as they acquire another wide receiver in Kelvin Benjamin just before the trade deadline. Now, it is unclear if he will play tonight, but if he does, there is a chance he makes an impact. One thing is for sure, Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy are who the Jets need to contain. Can Josh McCown continue to be serviceable and do enough to help them pull out a victory or will the Bills continue to knock on the Patriots door of becoming the division leader with a win of their own. We shall see how it all plays out.

Let the discussion begin!
