Bills Demolish Jets, Get Back on Track

   (1 review)

Image Credit: © Chris Pedota-USA TODAY Sports


From the very start of Sunday’s game with the New York Jets, there was never a question as to which team was in charge. The Buffalo Bills promptly forced the Jets to go three-and-out on their first possession, then proceeded to march the ball down the field and score. The Bills would repeatedly score until it was over – a 45-17 rout of the Jets.


It was a great way to get back to the business of winning after an embarrassing loss to Jacksonville last week. Both sides of the ball clicked as QB Josh Allen and the offense put up 489 yards of offense, and the defense forced five New York turnovers. Even the special teams were solid as K Tyler Bass hit all six of his extra points and a 29-yard field goal.


Allen was extremely efficient, completing 21-of-28 passes for 366 yards and two touchdowns. His 15-yard scoring pass to Matt Breida opened the day’s scoring on Buffalo’s first drive. Buffalo took over on its 42-yard line, and Allen completed passes to Emmanuel Sanders and Dawson Knox before a Devin Singletary 15-yard run set up the Bills with a first-and-10 at the Jets 15.

The Jets put together a short 47-yard drive in the second quarter that was capped by Matt Ammendola’s 48-yard field goal. It would be New York’s only points until late in the game. The Buffalo defense harassed Jets QB Mike White all game long. White, who started his first NFL game just a few weeks ago, had led New York to an upset of Cincinnati. The Buffalo defense was not going to allow that to happen again.


Buffalo only sacked White once – recorded by DE Efe Obada – but the defense hit White seven times. The Bills picked off White four times and also recovered a fumble by Jets WR Corey Davis. Buffalo held New York to fewer than 300 yards of total offense until a late Jets drive resulted in their only other points of the game. The Jets gained 68 yards in eight plays before Elijah Moore caught a meaningless 15-yard pass from veteran QB Joe Flacco for a touchdown with just 2:08 remaining in the game.


The Bills defense allowed just 70 yards on the ground by the Jets. That forced White to the air, where he wound up 24-of-44 for 251 yards. Buffalo remains the No. 1 scoring defense in the NFL. In their past three games, Buffalo has allowed 17, 6, and 11 points. For the season, the Bills allow an average of 15.0 points per game. That’s 2.7 points better than No. 2 New England.

The 45-point outburst also puts the Bills among the top offenses in the NFL. Buffalo is second in the league in scoring, averaging 31.1 points per game, just a half-point behind Dallas. The 45 points also marked the fourth consecutive game in which the Jets gave up at least 31 points. New York allowed 45 in last week’s loss to the Colts, 31 in that win over Cincinnati, and 54 in a loss to the Patriots.


Buffalo’s defensive effort was even more impressive as the team played without DT Star Lotulelei, who was placed on the COVID-19 list just before the game. Next up for the Bills is the Indianapolis Colts. Indy has won four of its last five games though all four wins have been against teams with losing records (Houston, San Francisco, the Jets, and Jacksonville). It’s the beginning of a challenging four-game stretch for Buffalo as they face both New Orleans and Tampa Bay on the road sandwiched around a home game with 6-4 New England.


Go Bills!

  • Buffalo Bills 2022-23 Season Review

    © Tina MacIntyre-Yee / USA TODAY NETWORK   I know we're not ready to process the fact that the Buffalo Bills' season is over, as many of us are still trying to come to grips with our emotions following the latest disappointment. Many are frustrated, bitter, confused, and possibly just fed up with their favorite football team after falling short of expectations yet again.   It's understandable to have mixed feelings about how to feel about this team's effort.

Unlike some other battles this season, the Rumbling Herd appears to be catching Joe Burrow’s Bengals at the worst time possible.   You think the Bills are red-hot as of late, winning six consecutive games? Well, the Bengals are white-hot winners of their past seven matchups.    Ob

    • Billsfans Bets: Super Bowl LVII Preview and Pick
      Super Bowl LVII has been set with the Kansas City Chiefs squaring off against the Philadelphia Eagles. 
      The game will take place on Sunday, February 12th at 6:30 PM EST. at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. LVII will be the 57th edition of sport's most prestigious event. 
      Kansas City will be making its fifth appearance in the Super Bowl. With a 2-2 record, they will look to get that record past .500 and continue penciling their name in the history books. 
      Philadelphia will return to the big game for the fourth time in franchise history. Five years ago, they were able to slay the dragon in the New England Patriots, winning 41-33 for their first Super Bowl in franchise history. 
      This is not a matchup rooted in history, as the teams have only played nine times since 1972. Kansas City leads the all-time series 5-4, but the result of the next matchup is all anyone will remember. ...

    • Buffalo Bills 2022-23 Season Review
      I know we're not ready to process the fact that the Buffalo Bills' season is over, as many of us are still trying to come to grips with our emotions following the latest disappointment. Many are frustrated, bitter, confused, and possibly just fed up with their favorite football team after falling short of expectations yet again.
      It's understandable to have mixed feelings about how to feel about this team's effort. Should we point fingers, criticize opponents or refs, or even question coaching decisions after such a bad loss?
      The truth is, there are many reasons to be upset with how the Bills finished their season, in a 27-10 loss in the Divisional Round. Not to take anything away from the Cincinnati Bengals, as they proved yet again that they're an elite team, reaching the AFC Conference Championship two years in a row. But a 17-point loss just wasn't what anyone was anticipating, not for this Rumbling Herd. 
      Especially considering Buffalo's worst loss all season came by just three points. We can't help but wonder how differently the outcome could have been had Buffalo had a chance to play their originally-scheduled Week 17 matchup against Cincinnati, giving the team a good feel for what to expect come playoff time, but that's simply another excuse. Cincinnati dealt with similar conditions. 
      We could go on and on about a tough ending to another rollercoaster season, but that would be doing an injustice to all the bright spots we got to experience throughout the year. Instead, let's look back at the season that was. One that saw the Bills have their second 13-win season in four years. ...

    • Billsfans Bets: NFL Conference Championships Picks
      Then there were four. 
      The NFL's divisional round wrapped up this weekend to set up the leagues' AFC and NFC Championship games. 
      We started in Kansas City, where Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs took on Trevor Lawrence and the Jacksonville Jaguars. Despite a scary ankle injury to star quarterback Patrick Mahomes, the Chiefs were able to hold on 27-20. Mahomes would leave the game in the first quarter but re-enter to start the second half. It is believed to be a high ankle sprain, and more updates will come throughout the week.
      Saturday's second game saw the Philadelphia Eagles completely torch the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field by a score of 38-7.
      On a snowy afternoon in Buffalo, Joe Cool came out on top. Using back-to-back touchdown drives to start the game, Cincinnati took an early lead they would never give back. The Bills cut the score 17-10 with a field goal with 7:12 left in the third quarter. With Bills fans clamoring for a defensive stop, Burrow led the Bengals on a 12-play, 75-yard touchdown drive lasting 6:25, taking a 24-10 lead in the fourth. A final score of 27-10 ended the Bills' season, and the franchise will have another offseason of evaluating what went wrong in the postseason. 
      The weekend concluded with a defensive showdown in San Francisco. Limiting Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott to 206 passing yards, the 49ers' defense looked every bit Super Bowl-ready. Rookie quarterback Brock Purdy was able to do enough, and do-it-all Christian McCaffrey found the end zone for the eighth straight week. The 49ers won 19-12. 
      It should be a great Championship weekend as the Cincinnati Bengals will travel to Arrowhead to play the Chiefs. The 49ers have set up a date with the Eagles and will leave their nice weather for a game in Philadelphia.  ...
