Give the Bills credit, they played well. The Jets, on the other hand, were dominated in every phase of the game. The offensive line couldn’t block. Josh McCown was atrocious, making bad throws and bad decisions. The run defense couldn’t tackle, the pass defense couldn’t cover, the pass rush rarely got pressure on Matt Barkley. The Buffalo Bills came to play, and the Jets looked like they mailed this one in.
The Bills went two plays in less than a minute to score on the game’s first possession. It only went downhill from there. The Bills converted a fake punt on fourth down. They scored on a fumble. They scored on a pass to an eligible receiver offensive lineman. The Bills played loose and well in every aspect of the game. The Jets barely played at all.
The Jets could stop neither the run nor the pass, nor could they pass the ball nor run the ball on offense. This was as embarrassing a display of football ineptitude as we’ve seen in some time. The score was 31-3 at the half, and the second half amounted to little more than extended garbage time.
With the loss the Jets record falls to 3-7, as they head into the bye week before a week 12 clash against the New England Patriots.
