Bills Stomp Over Jets to Stay Atop AFC East

The Buffalo Bills proved to be too much for the New York Jets, resulting in a 45-17 win at Metlife Stadium on Sunday, Nov. 14.

The AFC East-leading Bills (6-3), who suffered a disappointing 9-6 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in week nine, got off to a quick start, scoring within the first two minutes of the game after Josh Allen connected with Matt Breida on a 15-yard touchdown reception. Kicker Tyler Bass added three more after converting on a 29-yard field goal to put the Bills up 10-0 after the first quarter.

The Jets (2-7) got on the board as kicker Matt Ammendola made a 48-yard field goal coming out of the two-minute warning. But the Bills quickly marched down the field and added a touchdown on a 12-yard reception by Stefon Diggs before the first half ended to put the Bills up 17-3.

Buffalo once again started the half off strong, scoring a touchdown on the opening drive of the third quarter, as running back Isaiah McKenzie found the end zone on an eight-yard carry. Less than two minutes later, after an interception from Jets quarterback Mike White, Breida rushed for 15 yards to score his second touchdown of the day. The extra point put the Bills up 31-3.

Another interception by the Bills defense resulted in a five-play, 49-yard drive that ended with a one-yard touchdown by Zack Morris.

After Allen was picked off by Sharrod Neasmon, the Jets saw the end zone after 11 plays led to a one-yard rushing touchdown by Michael Carter.

Bills left guard Devin Singletary added another touchdown for Buffalo, converting from the Jets’ two-yard line to make it a 45-10 game.

In the waning minutes of the game, the Jets sent in quarterback Joe Flacco, who managed to muster up one more touchdown on a 15-yard pass to Elijah Moore.

The Bills sent in backup quarterback Davis Webb as time expired.

Allen finished the game with 366 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception, while White threw for 251 yards, no touchdowns, and four interceptions. Singletary led the Bills with 43 rushing yards and receivers Diggs and Gabriel Davis combined for 267 yards in the air. Carter led the Jets with 39 rushing yards and Corey Davis had 93 yards on five receptions. 

In week 11, the Bills head home to face the Indianapolis Colts (5-5), as the Jets stay home for another AFC East matchup against the Miami Dolphins (3-7).
