Shootout At The Ralph?

As of Tuesday, the Bills still had 15,000 unsold tickets for the Jacksonville game this Sunday. There's no way they're moving close to that many tickets. There's a greater likelihood that thousands of fans will be trying to move their own tickets so they can start their Christmas shopping.

But maybe the Bills should promote this game as a possible offensive shootout. The Jaguars are 29th in the NFL in points allowed. The Bills are 30th.  I know the Bills' defense has come on in recent weeks, but Jacksonville has been on a tear since Chad Henne replaced Blaine Gabbert as the starter. Over the last two games, the Jags have averaged 30.5 points and 389.5 yards a game. Remember what happened when Jake Locker went down and the Titans turned to a veteran QB, Matt Hasselbeck.

Which two teams have given up more points than the Jags and Bills, you ask? Oakland and Tennessee. Somehow, four AFC teams have managed to allow more points than New Orleans. The Saints are 28th. Kansas City is 27th and the Jets 26th. Six of the worst teams in the league in points allowed are in the sorry AFC.

Further proof that the AFC was down this year and it was a great opportunity for the Bills to sneak into the playoffs. Sad.
