Under the spotlight: Oday Aboushi and Darrin Walls

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. -- -- Each week we will select two players on the New York Jets -- one on offense, one on defense -- who figure to play a key role in the upcoming game. They face the Buffalo Bills (4-3) Sunday at MetLife Stadium:

Oday Aboushi, left guard: Save for a costly holding penalty, the second-year lineman held up reasonably well in his first NFL start last week against the New England Patriots, but the competition is about to go up a notch. The Jets face arguably the top defensive-tackle tandem in the league, three-time Pro Bowl selection Kyle Williams and Marcell Dareus, who has a league-high seven sacks for defensive tackles. The Bills flip-flop their tackles, so there will be no breaks for Aboushi and right guard Willie Colon. The relentless Williams made it a long day for Brian Winters in last season's second meeting, recording two sacks. He has only one sack through seven games, but don't buy into that. He's a major threat. Said Rex Ryan: "I’m a huge Kyle Williams fan. I think he’s one of the most underrated players."

Darrin Walls, cornerback: Right now, Walls is the Jets' No. 1 corner. Such is the state of the secondary. He's the 47th-rated corner in the league, according to Pro Football Focus -- which isn't half-bad. This week's challenge is Bills rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins, who has the physical tools to be a great one. Watkins, drafted fourth overall is coming off a breakout game -- nine catches for 122 yards and two touchdowns, including the game winner. He's fast, smooth and has tremendous body control. Ryan compared him to Julio Jones and A.J. Green. The Bills move him around, so Phillip Adams and even Kyle Wilson could see Watkins. Walls is the Jets' best bet, so they should try to put him on Watkins as much as possible.
