After 10 months of anticipation and three days of playoff-like buildup, Rex Ryan’s return to MetLife Stadium is finally here.
Rex’s Bills vs. Jets: Storylines galore and the winner will be …

Ryan, who coached the Jets for six seasons, will be on the opposing sideline Thursday night in the red, white and blue of the Bills in a huge AFC East matchup. The talk all week has been about Ryan’s return, making it easy to overlook how big of a game this is in the standings for both teams. The 5-3 Jets and 4-4 Bills most likely won’t catch the Patriots for the division title, but both figure to be in the AFC wild-card mix.

Ryan made light of his own sentiments this week, concentrating on what this win would mean for his group.

"It'd be colossal," Ryan said. "It would be tremendous for us in light of the fact that it's a defining moment. Clearly we need to stay in the thick of things and that is the thing that makes this thing such a defining moment. Clearly both groups are attempting to get to the playoffs, it's been quite a while for both establishments and we're a diversion behind the Jets. So this is completely gigantic. It would be a colossal win."

Obviously, that does not mean the show of Rex returning won't be a major ordeal Thursday night. Everything he might do is certain to be chronicled from which Jets players he welcomes to how the fans demonstration toward him.

Ryan made the coin hurl a sidebar by naming previous Jet IK Enemkpali as an amusement chief. Enemkpali turned into the narrative of the week the same number of individuals saw it as discourteous of Ryan to respect Enemkpali, who was cut by the Jets in August subsequent to breaking quarterback Geno Smith's jaw.

Flies wide recipient Brandon Marshall said none of this will matter when the groups take the field.

"It's equitable football," Marshall said. "It's not a cleanser musical drama. It's not TMZ. This is just football."

It ought to be a captivating amusement with the Bills getting more beneficial and the Jets managing a rash of wounds. The Jets have harm worries in all out attack mode line and in the auxiliary, two regions the Bills could abuse.

The Bills offense is loaded with playmakers, featured by Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy and drove by quarterback Tyrod Taylor.

"Clearly, they're intense," Jets mentor Todd Bowles said. "They're capable, they have a great deal of ability at a ton of expertise positions. They're enormous and intense in advance on both sides of the ball. It will be an intense ball game."

Marquee matchup

Bills WR Sammy Watkins versus Planes CB Darrelle Revis

The second-year Buffalo star had his best diversion as a professional a week ago, burning the Dolphins for 168 accepting yards and a touchdown. Presently, he gets the chance to challenge Revis, who some vibe has slipped a bit.

Revis will must be large and in charge in light of the fact that the Jets are harming somewhere else in the auxiliary with protections Calvin Pryor and Dion Bailey out and cornerback Antonio Cromartie unrealistic to play.

Revis was complimentary of Watkins when asked what challenges he displays.

"Each test in the book. He's one of the youthful stars in the group," Revis said. "He makes a considerable measure of plays. He's their No. 1 risk. He gets a great deal of profound balls down the field. [Tyrod] Taylor has an awesome arm on the profound ball and they search for Sammy down the field. It's certainly going to be a test."

Watkins said he is excited for the test of confronting Revis.

"I anticipate it," Watkins told correspondents in Buffalo. "I comprehend it will be a hard matchup. He will be shadowing me most likely all over the place. As a top collector — as a recipient who needs to be seen as a top beneficiary — you certainly need to conflict with those sort of folks. I know it's going to most likely be the hardest test of my profession, season, each year."

4 downs

Scratch ed up

The Jets have wounds everywhere on their lineup, however the most concerning is at focus with Nick Mangold, who has a neck harm. Mangold attempted to play Sunday against the Jaguars, however left the amusement in the first half. The Jets' running diversion fundamentally stops when Mangold strolls off the field.

In spite of the fact that he will begin Thursday, there is no certification he will wrap up. Mangold said it is difficult to recreate practically speaking the weight on his neck a diversion causes.

"It must be in full-amusement circumstance and that is difficult to imitate once you're out of preparing camp practically," Mangold said. "You simply go out there with high trusts and the way things have been going, it shouldn't be a stress."

Aggravating matters for the Jets is the nonattendance of right watch Willie Colon, who was put on season-closure harmed save Wednesday with a knee damage. Brian Winters is relied upon to begin set up of Colon.

Auxiliary issues

The Jets are likewise truly beat up in their protective backfield, and that could smolder them against Sammy Watkins and LeSean McCoy. Calvin Pryor and Dion Bailey are both out, which means Rontez Miles likely will begin at security. Miles was simply closed down the practice squad a week ago. It likewise is conceivable the Jets could sign security Ronald Martin off the practice squad before Thursday's diversion.

At cornerback, Antonio Cromartie is required to miss the diversion, which will constrain Marcus Williams into the beginning lineup no doubt. They likewise could move Buster Skrine to the outside.

No. 1 versus No. 2

Any Jets fan knows Rex Ryan's equation is running the ball on offense and halting the keep running on barrier. He must be adoring his hurrying assault this season, which is positioned No. 2 in the NFL at 141.6 yards for every amusement. McCoy drives the route with 416 surging yards on 94 conveys and two touchdowns. Karlos Williams, the group's fifth-round draft decision this year, has been amazing too, with 336 yards and five scores on 41 conveys.

Confronting Ryan's hurrying assault, however, is the Jets' guarded front he made. The Jets are No. 1 in the NFL against the run, permitting 80.6 yards for each diversion. Ryan drafted Muhammad Wilkerson and Sheldon Richardson and trained Damon Harrison from an undrafted free specialists to a star NFL nose tackle. Ryan won't be cheerful to see them once more.

Fitz's reprisal

While all the consideration has been on Ryan confronting his previous group, it is likewise a get-together for Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who played for the Bills from 2009-12. It is not the first run through Fitzpatrick has confronted them. He drove the Texans to a win over the Bills a year ago, something he called a "passionate win" this week.

"At whatever time you play against a group that let you know you're sufficiently bad, that conveys some additional weight," Fitzpatrick said. "So this one will convey additional weight for me. However, that being said, the more distant we're expelled from that, the more the countenances have changed. I don't know the same number of folks on the group any longer."

Costello's call

This resembles an unsafe diversion for the Jets, however I think they ride the feeling of a started up home group and the offense discovers a few gaps in Rex Ryan's resistance and Ryan leaves MetLife a wash
