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.”

The NFL has named Buffalo Bills running back Boobie Dixon as the AFC Player of the Week following the Bills 38-3 win over the New York Jets.

Dixon, who blocked a punt that was recovered in the end zone by Manny Lawson during the game, extending the Bills lead.

Dixon commented on the play.

“Actually it was just me trying to make a play. It wasn’t a call. I told Danny (Crossman) before I went out there, I said, ‘Danny, he’s sitting on me. I think I can get back there.’ He didn’t call the rush so I just said, ‘You know what? I’m going to carry my man to the punter. I’m going to block my dude and then I’m going to block the punt.’ It just happened. It felt great.”

This is Dixon's first Player of the Week in his career.

This is the third special teams player to get this award so far this season from the Bills.

Kicker Dan Carpenter and running back C.J. Spiller were named the AFC's special teams players of Weeks 1 and 2, respectively.

Could the Buffalo Bills Make a Move for Robert Griffin III

With the Buffalo Bills looking at an unsure future at quarterback, a look around the league can reveal options for the Bills that may be available for them despite their current status.

The Washington Redskins are benching a struggling Robert Griffin III for Colt McCoy.

Griffin has been struggling under head coach Jay Gruden's leadership and seemingly hasn't caught on to the offensive strategy. The results: Griffin has the fourth lowest QBR in the NFL (EJ Manuel is last).

While Griffin has had his injuries, and has been struggling in the drop-back scheme that the Redskins have been running, the Bills could be a better fit.

The Bills have a better scheme to fit Griffin's needs. The run game would benefit from using more play action and read option, which are both Griffin's strengths.

Griffin is entering the last year of his rookie deal and is owed a significant bonus this spring. The Redskins could move Griffin, but may want too much initially.

After last week's game against the New York Jets was moved to Detroit due to severe winter weather, many wondered if the Buffalo Bills would play this week's game against the Cleveland Browns at Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The answer, in short, is yes.

"Obviously it's been a long trying week for our community and we were very mindful of that as we entered yesterday's game and we're glad that we were able to give everyone a great outcome and three hours away from what they've dealt with and what they're dealing with moving forward," Bills Vice President of Operations Russ Brandon said. "With that being said, we're looking forward to preparing for the Browns and playing Sunday here at Ralph Wilson Stadium. There has been an enormous amount of progress over the last few days and while we had a difficult hand from Mother Nature last week, Mother Nature certainly assisted this week with the heat wave that we somewhat had here in Buffalo and the great efforts by Andy Major and his staff over the last few days."

Buffalo Bills Had Strong Following in Detroit Against New York Jets

The Buffalo Bills may be a small market team, but there's no doubting the strong following the team has with its loyal fan base, and that was on full display Monday night when they played the New York Jets in Detroit.

The Western New York area was ravaged with snow, which caused many issues for residents and a death toll in the double-digits. The football game itself was miniscule on the grand scale, but Bills fans made sure they showed up to give their team a home-field edge, even if the site of the game was neutral. Gregory McKenzie-Moore is a fan of the Bills, now living in Detroit, and he said that Buffalo was certainly represented.

"The Bills fans had preferred seating behind the Bills' bench and it was packed, loud and boisterous," McKenzie-Moore said. "As a matter of fact, the fans filled the Bills side of the stadium first. The Jets' side was very sparse when we finally arrived around 6:30 and the Detroit people sat on the Jets side which had better seats. We sat on the Jets' side of the field and in my section I would say it was mostly Bills fans Lions fans, with one or two green jerseys."
