Take your pick: Jets or Bills?

By James Walker

A recent video in the AFC East blog sparked a heated debate between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets. ESPN analyst Herm Edwards picked the Bills to be one of the last teams in the playoffs ahead of the Jets, and Jets fans weren't happy about it.

So we're going to revisit that topic Wednesday in the AFC East blog. Which team will have a better 2012 season: Jets or Bills?

Buffalo is considered a team on the rise after a stellar offseason, led by the acquisition of stud defensive end Mario Williams. Many feel they could be a sleeper in the AFC. The Bills will look to end a 13-year playoff drought.

Meanwhile, the Jets are a veteran team that is hard to read after last year’s 8-8 season. They could be primed to bounce back or on the downswing. It is interesting to note New York swept Buffalo last year and will play the Bills in Week 1 at MetLife Stadium.

Most people peg the Patriots to win the AFC East. But second place is wide open. Using our SportsNation poll, take your pick on whether the Jets or Bills will have a better 2012 season.
