After an emotional victory against the Carolina Panthers, the Buffalo Bills laid an egg against the New York Jets.
Despite New York's team-record 20 penalties, and Geno Smith having the talents of a high school quarterback, the Bills were unable to find a victory. Buffalo forced Smith to throw two interceptions, but the Bills couldn't turn either turnover into a touchdown.
As pathetic as it may sound, the Jets were the better team Sunday. They could stop the run when Buffalo couldn't (see Bilal Powell's 149 yards rushing), they made plays against Buffalo's depleted secondary and Smith looked for once that he is more than an under-developed Mark Sanchez.
It was obvious the Bills really missed Andy Levitre this week. EJ Manuel was sacked eight times and CJ Spiller had nine yards on 10 carriers before leaving the game with a knee injury. Leodis McKelvin also left the game with an injury, leaving Justin Rogers to display his inability to look for the ball. Rogers played a terrible game, and was responsible for giving up the eventual game-winning touchdown after getting beat man-to-man by Santonio Holmes.
Coming into this game, the Bills looked like they should coast to victory. The Jets were in turmoil, Smith had looked awful and Buffalo's defense was going to sink its teeth into New York's offense. But then reality hit, and the Bills repeated history, ripping the hope away from fans with a disgusting and embarrassing loss.
