A motivated Buffalo team is coming to New York on Sunday. Upset last Sunday in Jacksonville, the Bills are surely hoping to rebound Sunday against a New York Jets team that is also hoping to respond following a 45-30 loss in Indianapolis last Thursday night. 

The Bills need a win to stay ahead of the surging Patriots in the AFC East division standings. The Jets and first-year head coach Robert Saleh are looking for their third win of the season. New York is also in search of its first win against a divisional foe after getting swept by New England. 

We'll preview the game along with giving our prediction for Sunday's outcome. Here's how you can follow the action in real time.

When the Bills have the ball 

Despite scoring just six points in last Sunday's loss in Jacksonville, the Bills still possess the fourth-ranked scoring offense in the NFL. Three turnovers, four sacks allowed of quarterback Josh Allen, 12 penalties and 6 of 16 efficiency on third and fourth downs were the primary reasons why Buffalo suffered the biggest upset of Week 9. 

The Bills also lacked offensive balance as they threw the ball 47 times while attempting just 16 running plays. Specifically, the Bills forgot about running backs Devin Singletary and Zack Moss, who had just nine carries between them. Expect offensive coordinator Brian Daboll to employ a much more balanced game plan against New York's 32nd-ranked scoring defense. Two players the Bills will have to account for are defensive tackles Quinnen Williams and John Franklin-Myers, who combined to tally nearly half of the Jets' sack total through eight games. 

When the Jets have the ball 

Mike White is back in the lineup after he suffered a right forearm injury in last week's loss to the Colts. White threw a touchdown pass to Elijah Moore on his final pass of the night. And despite White's injury, the Jets' offense put four scoring drives together with Josh Johnson under center. Moore scored his second touchdown on a 19-yard pass from Johnson, while Ty Johnson capped off the night with a 22-yard touchdown reception. 

Sunday will mark the fourth career regular-season game and third start for White, who threw for 405 yards and three touchdowns while completing 82.2% of his throws in New York's Week 8 win over Cincinnati. As the last two weeks have shown, White and the Jets' offense is capable of scoring points. That being said, they will face their biggest test to date in the Bills' defense, a unit that has allowed the fewest points in football. The unit has been led so far by defensive backs Jordan Poyer, Micah Hyde and Tre'Davious White, linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and linemen Gregory Rousseau and Mario Addison. This unit is especially tough on possession downs, as it is tops in the league in both third-down and red-zone efficiency. 

Prediction

Latest Odds: New York Jets +13

The Bills' offense is going to score points, so Sunday's game will likely come down to how many points the Jets' offense can score against Buffalo's formidable defense. White and the Jets' offense are capable of putting together at least a few scoring drives against the Bills, but probably not enough to keep pace with Allen and the Bills' offense. Expect a big game from Allen and receiver Stefon Diggs, who caught 20 passes during the Bills' last three games. 

Score: Bills 34, Jets 21
