Sunday’s New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills matchup is crucial as the AFC East title is still up for grabs.
The Bills hold a tiebreaker over the New England Patriots with both teams sporting identical 10-6 records heading into Week 18.
Therefore, a win over the lowly Jets locks up the AFC East divisional crown for Buffalo and all the playoff advantages that come with it.
Still, a 16-point spread is a large one to cover, so how will Sunday’s Jets vs. Bills matchup play out?
The Action Network’s NFL Pro Projections make this spread Bills -17.7, suggesting that there’s very little value in this spread.
The over/under, however, is a different story.
