Let's take a look back at last week's game between the Jets and Bills and the best defensive plays New York made.

1-5-NYJ 5 (2:22) First Quarter 28-C.Spiller right guard to NYJ 8 for -3 yards (96-M.Wilkerson).

On a first and goal, Muhammad Wilkerson runs through the hole vacated by a pulling guard and makes a stop for a loss of three. Wilkerson displayed a great burst, one of many reasons people feel he is a star in the making.

3-4-BUF 47 (7:58) (Shotgun) Second Quarter 30-T.Choice right guard to BUF 42 for -5 yards (53-J.Mauga).

The Jets are in an all out blitz on a third down. The Bills are in a bad play call, a handoff to Tashard Choice running right after lining up to Ryan Fitzpatrick's left in the shotgun. Calvin Pace blows it up and forces Choice outside, where Josh Mauga cleans up the play for a five yard loss.

3-8-NYJ 47 (4:59) (Shotgun) 14-R.Fitzpatrick sacked at NYJ 49 for -2 yards (51-A.Maybin).

Aaron Maybin's first sack ends a drive.

3-10-BUF 20 (:56) (Shotgun) 14-R.Fitzpatrick sacked at BUF 12 for -8 yards (51-A.Maybin).

Aaron Maybin's second sack ends a drive.

3-7-NYJ 38 (9:41) Third Quarter (Shotgun) 14-R.Fitzpatrick pass short left to 28-C.Spiller to NYJ 41 for -3 yards (33-E.Smith).

The Jets stop the Bills for a three yard loss on a third down play with Buffalo on the cusp of field goal range. It is a short pass left to C.J. Spiller, but the Jets play it perfectly. David Harris gets in Spiller's face and forces him to redirect. Eric Smith cleans up the tackle.
