Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets: Final Report Card, Player Grades for Jets

Well, Rex Ryan was wrong again!

On August 20, he said the team's offense was a "work in progress."

So either they made a lot of progress over the past three weeks, or the team has just been playing coy in the national spotlight.

Either way, the 48-28 thrashing of the Buffalo Bills is one of the most satisfying opening-day wins in recent franchise history.

With seemingly the whole NFL world picking the Jets apart in every aspect of their organization but their defense, the Jets steamrolled a Bills team that many picked not just in this game, but picked to supplant the Jets as the top threat to the Patriots in the AFC East.

The 48 points was the most ever scored by the Jets in their opener and the most by any NFL team on opening day since the 49ers dropped 48 on the Bears in 2003 (h/t Rich Cimini).

The game wasn't perfect by any means, and the Jets face a step-up in competition next week when they travel to Pittsburgh, but take a week to enjoy this win and make your opinions known to every Jets hater you know for the next few days.

Here are the individual grades for the key players on opening day.
