Bills still rely on ground game

Bills still rely on ground game

3 - Heavy defensive line rotationAfter the last two seasons in which Buffalo's starting defensive linemen were rarely rotated out in games, some Bills fans may have been surprised to see defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier's heavy rotation of defensive line personnel through the course of the game. The Jets will need them to come out fired up if NY hopes to shut down the Buffalo rushing attack.

The usual problems hurt the Bills all day.

Quarterback Tyrod Taylor started off on a rough note after throwing an endzone interception on their first drive of the game but battled back.

Still, a win in the National Football League is a notable achievement, and the Bills enabled McDermott to become just the second coach in franchise history (Rex Ryan was the first) to win his debut game on Kickoff Weekend. The Bills still have much to prove after beating the lowly Jets.

The Jets are what we thought they were. His lone interception would have been a touchdown, had tight end Charles Clay been able to hold onto the ball in the end zone.

Tyrod handles things well: It wasn't a ideal day as the Bills quarterback went 16-for-28 on the day passing, but Taylor looked more than ready to take the field.

LeSean McCoy rushed for 107 yards on 20 carries to lead Buffalo's offense, which racked up X total yards on an underwhelming Jets defense. Only three other teams allowed more rushing yards and only the San Francisco 49ers gave up more touchdowns on the ground. His 48- and 52-yard second-quarter field goals kept the Jets in the game, with the 52-yarder the longest ever by a Jet at Buffalo.

The third quarter began raggedly for both offenses, but then came back-to-back-to-back touchdowns. Jordan Matthews caught a lovely pass that was in between defenders to get the Bills in scoring position in the first half. The New York Jets opened their 2017 campaign Sunday afternoon with a 21-12 setback to the Buffalo Bills at New Era Field in Buffalo.

McCown was efficient to start his Jets career though, completing 10 of his first 11 passes. On this series, McCoy was on fire. He finished the game with only two receptions for 61 yards. A 22-yard reception by Nick O'Leary put the Bills in scoring range.

"It's going to be a long year", former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason, whose 1995 team finished with the second-worst record (3-13) in franchise history, told Newsday on August 30.

In New York, the youth movement has cut so deep, the chants of "J-E-T-S" have turned to "T-A-N-K" for a team in contention to finish last and land the No. 1 draft pick.
