FLAT! That’s how I describe this game. The Bills offense really couldn’t get anything going in their 27-11 loss against the AFC East New York Jets. I could go on about how the Jets played well on defense and how Sanchez controlled the offense up and down the field but I won’t. I just can’t stand the Jets and to give them credit for a great win makes me a little sick to my stomach. So for now, the Jets didn’t win this one, the Bills lost it.
The Buffalo defense kept them in the game only allowing 3 points in the first half. They gave the offense every opportunity to win this game, but sadly they couldn’t get anything rolling. No Fitzmagic this Sunday, he finished the day 15/31 191 yards with 1 late touchdown to Nelson and 2 crucial interceptions. He will have to keep those interceptions to a minimal next week when they travel to Dallas to take on the hated Cowboys.
Fred Jackson still had over 100 yards all purpose yards but gave up his first fumble of the year early in the 3rd quarter and the Jets were able to capitalize with a touchdown to put Buffalo down by 13. He’ll bounced back. The Bills will bounced back!
This is how to look on the bright side after a tough loss:
- Although we lost a division game, the Bills will play the Jets again in 3 weeks
- The Patriots lost to the Giants and they are not looking like the Pats of old.
- The Bills are still in first place
- The Chiefs, Raiders, Chargers all lost too.
- The Patriots and Jets, Cincy and Pittsburgh play this weekend.
- If the Bills win and Patriots win, the Bills will be back in playoff spot.
Keep your spirits up Bills fan, it’s not the end of the world, but boy oh boy, they would be only in first if they would have won.ARG!
P.S. Norwood was in the building yesterday… bad omen?
