- The Bills matched their point total from last year's game in Toronto on their first possession with Lindell's 49 yard field goal.
- The Jets killed themselves early by blowing two easy touchdowns in the first quarter. Sanchez missed a wide open receiver in the end zone by badly overthrowing him. On the next series, Edwards dropped a wide open bomb on a good pass by Sanchez.
- A field position swing in the third quarter also hurt the Bills even though no points were scored in the quarter. The Bills started at their own 48 on their first drive but their second drive started at the 6. The Jets had third quarter drive starts at their 13 and 9 before starting their third drive at their 47 as they totally flipped the field on the Bills while holding a six point lead. The Jets hit a field goal on the first play of the fourth quarter to take a two score lead that would hold up.
- When Sanchez left with a knee injury the Bills knew the Jets would run but still gave up some long runs. They continue to get caught out of their gaps. It may be time to change a defensive philosophy that allows big gains everytime someone is not in the exact right place.
Pick whatever adjective you like to describe the way the Bills played: Dull, boring, lackluster, lethargic. You can also use those adjectives to describe the entire contest. It was a mirror image of the atmosphere inside the dome. Yes, there were definitely more Bills fans this year than last year but the result and the look of the game was eerily similar. Did anybody really think the Bills were going to march 73 yards in the two minute drill to win the game? It was disappointing after many fans had high hopes that the team was gaining an identity after Sunday's win. Well against the Jets it was the same old Bills. Would it have been different in the Ralph? We will never know but they were pretty much manhandled by the Jets who played a much more physical game and just beat the Bills worse than the final score indicated.
The Bills have a nice little break before heading to Kansas City to take on the young and improving Chiefs. Even though they are one of the lower rung teams, they have more upside than the Bills. Arrowhead Stadium is a tough place to play no matter how much the Chiefs are struggling.
