Top 5 reasons to get hyped for Buffalo's Week 17 game against the Jets 


5. Grounding the Jets

The Bills are home sweet home for a Week 17 contest with the New York Jets on Sunday, Dec. 29. The showdown is a rematch of the team's opening weekend game against the AFC East division rival, where the Bills defeated the Jets 17-16. Given a chance to close out the season with another victory over the Adam Gase led squad, and to defend their dirt in the process, the Bills are eager to get the job done. A "W" would give the Bills their first sweep over the Jets since the 2015 campaign.

3. Big honor for Bills legendary special teamer

When it comes to special teams, it's not often that you find a player more special than Bills Legend Steve Tasker. A seven-time first-team All-Pro, seven-time Pro Bowler, Bills Wall of Famer and 2020 Hall of Fame semifinalist, Tasker will be honored this weekend as the "Legend of the Game." Bills faithful will be able to show their support for Tasker by joining him as he welcomes the Bills to the field.

2. Another 'A' for JA17

At just 23 years old, Josh Allen has already achieved several noteworthy career milestones. With just 16 yards passing, the signal caller can hit another when facing the Jets. If he does, Allen will become the first player in Bills history to tally 3,100+ yards passing and 500+ yards rushing in the same season! Undoubtedly an impressive feat, Allen's also managed to improve his passer rating by 17.1 this season, which is the largest jump from last season by any NFL starter.

1. The Bills make me want to shout

The Bills defense has showed up and showed out all season long. Stingy when it comes to giving up points, the unit can tally a significant accomplishment of their own in Week 17. If defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier's group limits the Jets to 32 or fewer points, they'll have the best mark in the category since 1999. Additionally, a win would advance the Bills to 11-5 on the season, giving them their best record since '99 also.
