When the Jets started the season 0-2, they got themselves off the deck with a home blowout over a division rival. Tonight the Jets ended their three game losing streak in the same fashion. New York blew out the Buffalo Bills 34-21 avenging their Week 1 defeat in Buffalo. The game was not as close as the final score would indicate. The Bills tacked on a pair of late cosmetic touchdowns.
This was the formula the Jets want. The defense was dominating. Tyrod Taylor was sacked seven times and forced three turnovers. The front seven totally controlled the point of attack against the run and the pass all night. Muhammad Wilkerson turned in a third straight excellent game. He suddenly is starting to look like an elite defensive lineman again.
On offense, the Jets ran it for 194 yards.
This was just what the doctor ordered. This season was on the verge of spiraling out of control. The Jets still face a steep hill to climb, but they at least avoided a fourth straight loss and got their record to 4-5.
Celebrate below. The official recap will follow.
