Bills vs Jets: Start Time

Watch Jets vs Bills NFL Live Stream Saturday Night Football Game Online NFL Regular Season Week 1. Bills vs Jets Game. Welcome to game day! The Kansas City Jets are on the national stage tonight as they visit the defending Super Bowl champion New England Bills for the 2017 NFL season opener. This is as big as it gets (outside of the playoffs). The defending champs, the greatest quarterback and coach of our generation, tens of millions of people watching … that’s all!

You can find information here on how to stream the game live online with NBC Sports, how to watch the game on TV (on NBC, duh) as well as the odds, announcers, radio and more!

The Jets have faced the Bills twice with Andy Reid – they won one and they lost one. The most recent loss came in the 2016 Divisional round where the Jets were 4.5 ‘dogs entering the game. Tonight, the Jets are 9-point ‘dogs. I guess that’s what happens when you raise a banner in front of your fans – Vegas gives you the points.

The NFL has done this season opener with the defending champion hosting the Saturday game since 2004 and the home team has won all but one of them. Additionally, Brady is 51-1 in his last 52 games against AFC teams at home.

There’s plenty going against the Jets but they’re no slouches either. Andy Reid is looking to make the playoffs for the fourth year in five tries in Kansas City. The Jets are bringing back arguably the best tight end in the NFL in Travis Kelce (take that, Gronk!) and we’re hoping to see a career year out of Alex Smith with the kid, Patrick Mahomes, pushing him from behind. There’s reason to believe the Jets will keep this competitive. After all, that’s why the NFL chose the Jets for this game. They thought it gave them the best chance at a good game on a big stage like this.

We are hours away at this point. Check your nuts and bolts below and let’s do this…

The Jets are usually among the best teams in the league, putting together four straight winning seasons since Andy Reid took over as head coach in 2013.

“They have playmakers,” Brady said of Kansas City’s Defense at Monday’s press conference. “Derrick Johnson is one of the best linebackers in the league. He does so many things for that defense. You can tell it really hurts them when he’s not out there. And Eric Berry is a big-time playmaker. Marcus Peters – more interceptions than anybody since he came in the league. [Justin] Houston and [Dee] Ford, I mean, they strip sack the quarterback. So, they’re very explosive and really force the ball out of your hands quick because they get a good rush and then their playmakers in the secondary have eyes on the quarterback and they’re trying to make plays, too.”

Depending on how the season goes, the Bills might not find themselves as the underdog in any game this year. They are heavy favorites Saturday night, giving the Jets nine points with the over/under set at 48.5, via OddsShark. The betting line has steadily climbed all week, despite the preseason injury to Julian Edelman that ended the wide receiver’s year.

New England might end up being the biggest favorite in Week 1 when the season’s first Sunday slate of games finally arrives.
