The New York Jets control their playoff destiny as they take on the Buffalo Bills at Ralph Wilson Stadium in Orchard Park, N.Y. on Sunday. A Jets victory would clinch a wildcard playoff spot.

New York is coming off a 26–20 overtime victory over the New England Patriots on Sunday. Despite struggles in the fourth quarter, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick connected on three clutch passes in overtime, including the game-winning throw to Eric Decker. Fitzpatrick finished the day with 296 yards and three touchdowns. Brandon Marshall was another bright spot for the Jets offense as he finished the day with eight catches for 115 yards and two touchdowns.

There is no doubt former Bills head coach Rex Ryan, who coached the Jets from 2009 to ’14, will be treating this game like the Super Bowl. The Bills are coming off a 16–6 win over the Dallas Cowboys, where rookie running back Mike Gillislee ran 50 yards for a touchdown in the closing minutes of the game for the win.
