Sammy Watkins was the main focu of the New York Jets defense going into their Monday night game. While the Jets limited Watkins to three catches for 35 yards, teammate Robert Woods thrived, setting career highs in catches (nine) and receiving yards (118) to go along with one touchdown.
"We had a plan to take away Sammy Watkins," Rex Ryan said. "We pretty much did that, but that kind of exposed on the other side of the defense. I should have adjusted our coverage and give a more balanced approach."
The Bills quickly adjusted to the Jets double covering Watkins for most of the game. Robert Woods relished the opportunity to make the Jets pay for the defensive lapse.

“Yeah, I mean, Sammy was getting double covered pretty much all game and even he came up to me and said, ‘Somebody’s got to make a play.’ I saw I was getting a lot of man-to-man coverage and I just had to beat my man," Woods said. "Kyle (Orton) placed the ball where only I could make the catch.”
