ESPN senior writer Mike Sando asks league insiders to pick winners in selected games each week. Three evaluators joined the panel for Week 9. This week’s selected games: Bills-Jets, Chiefs-Cowboys, Buccaneers-Saints, Falcons-Panthers and Lions-Packers.


Buffalo Bills at New York Jets

Thursday: 8:25 p.m. ET, CBS | Point spread: BUF by 3 | PickCenterInsider

All three insiders are taking the Bills to win on the road despite the short week, which isn’t just a reflection of the opponent. Buffalo and Kansas City are the only teams that have won the turnover battle six times already this season. Buffalo and Seattle are the only teams that haven’t lost the turnover battle in a game this season. That’s good company the Bills are keeping.

“I like Buffalo,” one of the insiders said. “They know who they are and they play to it. Their formula is working. Sean McDermott has done a good job, they do have some top-end talent and now they are adding [Kelvin] Benjamin. The quarterback [Tyrod Taylor] is also better than people think.”
