Bills Defeat the Jets in a Clash of Expected Also-Rans

11 September 2017

The Bills' Ramon Humber intercepted McCown's two-point conversion pass, protecting a 14-12 lead.

"It was kind of insane that the pass numbers were so cool, but we didn't even run a lot of my plays as far as me being the main target", McCoy said. Conventional wisdom says you wait to break the two-point card out of your wallet until the fourth quarter, but in the Land of Horrible Football Teams, it's often best to push the envelope whenever possible.

So much for the New York Jets extending their winning streak against their AFC East rivals from Orchard Park.

The trade continued to give rise to the narrative that the Jets are purging talent this year and more interested in building through the draft next year. Again, the Bills will need to continue that success against better teams, but the Jets are a team that relies on their rushing attack. Many predicted this victory. But most of the games were either tiresome losses or uninspiring wins. "Let's keep things in perspective".

There are no more snaps. "We got to continue to work on us, and when those plays present themselves, we got to hit those plays". Look for Atlanta to turn up the heat on Bears QB Mike Glennon , which means a healthy dose of blitzes from its best playmaker.

McCoy accounted for four play of 20-plus yards on his way to 159 yards from scrimmage on 27 total touches. It was the 11th time McCoy surpassed 100 yards in 28 games with the Bills.

The Jets defense couldn't stop Tyrod Taylor fast enough to get ball back to offense in the 4th.

McCoy was cleared to go back into the game, and stayed on the sidelines with his team.

What I didn't like: It was a mixed bag for quarterback Tyrod Taylor and the Bills' passing offense. McCoy himself gained more total yards (96) in the first half than the Jets. Kony Ealy and Muhammad Wilkerson swatted away the first two behind the line, and Juston Burris got the third when he plucked the pass that Charles Clay couldn't handle in the end zone and returned it out of harm's way.

It owed to her 11-month absence for foot surgery, during which she spent the Australian Open on the couch in a cast. Reached the quarter-finals of the 2014 Miami Open and the Aegon Classic in Birmingham.

"Whatever it takes", McCoy said. ArDarius Stewart looked comfortable and his acrobatic 9-yard catch in the third quarter, when where he laid out in an effort to get to the pylon, is the type of flashiness this offense desperately needs. The Bills used McCoy only sparingly in the red zone, replacing him at times with burly backup Mike Tolbert.

McCoy, who was listed as suffering a wrist injury, did return to the game. We project him to catch 52.0 passes for 560.5 yards and 1.56 touchdowns.

Bills' run defense dominant: The Bills' starting defense was dominant in the preseason, allowing only nine points in 16 opponent possessions.

Out of both teams, the Jets are on the outside looking in. This will be a baptism under fire for White, but this seems like a good matchup to start his career, especially given New York's problematic quarterback situation. He evaded Jets linebackers and safeties easily and case out of the game feeling like he can handle that type of workload all season long.

Last season, Washington gained fewer than 300 yards once, when it had 284 in the season finale against the New York Giants. The 58-yard feed was the second-longest touchdown completion of Wentz's career and Agholor's longest score.
