5 takeaways from the Bills win over the Jets

5 takeaways from the Bills win over the Jets

Yes I know how silly the first place stuff sounds right now, this early in the year but in a season where no one believes in the Jets why not celebrate whatever victory they can claim...no matter how small. The under is 8-3 in the Jets' last 11 road games and 5-2 in the Jets' last seven games overall. They released expensive veterans such as Eric Decker and David Harris and traded Sheldon Richardson this summer. Bright spots were few and far between.

One of the rare constants of the past decade (and beyond) has been the incompetence of the Buffalo Bills.

- I haven't highlighted too much of the New York Jets team in a positive light because, well, there isn't that much to highlight.

If Ryan has no interest watching two of his former teams open the season Sunday, when the New York Jets travel to play Buffalo, that's fine by Williams. Unfortunately, hardly anybody passed the ball worse, as injuries kept star receiver Sammy Watkins out most of the year. McLendon led a run defense that smothered McCoy last season. With the Patriots losing to the Chiefs last Thursday and the Dolphins on a premature BYE due to a hurricane, they have an actual shot to be on top of the AFC East standings.

Bryant's resilience, D-line's dominance lead Clemson past Auburn
By the end of the first half, Pettway had 16 carries already for 59 yards, good for almost 60 percent of Auburn's total offense. That Clemson defense has a big challenge Saturday, facing Lamar Jackson, Louisville's Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback.

Expecting to see McCoy appear on every offensive set for an entire season is, of course, impossible, but obviously, the running back is deemed the rock on which the team's offense is built on. This will be a game where neither offense wants to assert itself.

There had been doubt about his availability after he suffered a concussion in the Bills' 13-9 preseason defeat to the Baltimore Ravens on August 26.

ON THE RUN: At 29, McCoy doesn't believe he's lost a step. - Neither one of these teams is going to be confused with a legendary passing attack anytime soon. McCoy may carry an even bigger part of the load with Mike Gillislee now in New England, while Taylor, if he plays, is one of the best running quarterbacks.

Though the Jets' play-calling was conservative, Josh McCown was accurate, putting Chandler Catanzaro in position to hit a pair of field goals (48, 52), to cut the Bills' lead to 7-6 at halftime. The Jets will have a hard enough time moving it through the air. He should get a large amount of targets, especially with new acquisition Jordan Matthews banged up, so watch out for him as a Fantasy sleeper on Sunday. Taylor suffered a concussion during the preseason and was in concussion protocol until midway through last week, so if he is rusty or struggles with any pressure, it could be the opportunity the Jets need to come off with a surprising season-opening win.
