The Pittsburgh Steelers have been accused of preparing to tank the 2017 season after jettisoning a bunch of veteran players. The Jets deny the accusation, and claim they will be competitive this season. We’ll find out if they’re blowing off the 2017 season when they face the Buffalo Bills on Sunday (10 a.m. PT/1 p.m. ET, CBS, DirecTV).

The Jets (5-11 in 2016) rid themselves of veteran players such as wide receivers Brandon Marshall, Eric Decker, center Nick Mangold, defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson and quarterback Ryan Fitzgerald during the offseason. The moves to roll with young players – except for 38-year-old starting quarterback Josh McCown – prompted accusations the Jets were preparing to lose games to position themselves to win the No. 1 pick in the 2018 NFL draft, when a bevy of talented quarterbacks are expected to be available.
The Bills (7-9 in 2016) have a new coach in Sean McDermott. Bills fans hope that McDermott will lead the team to the playoffs and end the longest active playoff drought in not only the NFL, but in all of major professional sports in the United States. The Bills haven’t tasted the playoffs since 1999. The Bills have quarterback Tyrod Taylor, who is expected to play after clearing the league’s concussion protocol earlier this week.
