The worst news was confirmed this week for the Jets, as they will be without rookie quarterback Sam Darnold against the Bills. Darnold is nursing a foot sprain, and was seen in a walking boot during practice this week as veteran Josh McCown prepares to re-enter the starting mix in fill-in duty.
On the Bills side, Nathan Peterman… is finally not starting. Derek Anderson was signed to be the starter, and then he got hurt. Now, it is Matt Barkley’s turn to ride the memorable Bills’ 2018 quarterback carousel. Barkley, who has been on the roster for not even two weeks, will not have much to work with. LeSean McCoy has largely been ineffective this season due to a putrid offensive line.
While Sean McDermott’s job in Buffalo is safe largely due to the front office moving on from Tyros Taylor and beginning a retool this past offseason, Todd Bowles’ in New York is largely in question. As early as this year’s Thursday night game in Cleveland — a game Baker Mayfield made his NFL debut and eventually led the Browns to their first regular-season win in almost two years — the New York media has thrown out Bowles’ name as a potential candidate who could lose his position.
The loser of this game will officially fall to last place in the AFC East. For the Jets, despite a depleted offense, it is a must-win game, not for playoff implications, but to signal the direction of the franchise, and where they sit currently in their rebuild.
