In what promises to be the most important Thursday Night Football matchup of the 2015 season so far, fans can watch the Buffalo Bills live online as they battle to pull even with the New York Jets — the team that current Bills Coach Rex Ryan helmed for the previous six seasons — in the race for second place in the AFC East and a possible AFC Wild Card playoff berth.
The New England Patriots at 8-0 appear to be sailing smoothly toward what would be their 13th division championship in the last 15 seasons. But at 5-3 the Jets currently occupy the first of two AFC Wild Card slots — and at 4-4 the Bills are just a game behind them and, with a key divisional victory on Thursday night, would gain the edge in the heated competition for one of those Wild Card openings.
Watch a preview of the Week 10 Thursday Night Football Game, Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets, featuring the CBS Sports NFL Today crew, in the video on this page, above.
Ryan, who makes at least as many headlines with his often outrageous press conferences as with the performance of his team, has already scored what he apparently hopes will be a psychological blow against his former charges, who are now coached by Todd Bowles.
Coming into Jets game, Ryan has named linebacker IK Enemkpali a co-captain of the team for the game. Why is that a shot at the Jets? Simply because Enemkapli was a member of the Jets until August when, in the training camp locker room, he punched quarterback Geno Smith in the face, breaking Smith’s jaw.
