Buffalo Bills vs. New York Jets: 5 Winners and Losers for Buffalo

Here's a good picture for the NFL films version of this game.

There is no way one could have penned a more disastrous script for the Buffalo Bills' performance against the New York Jets in the season opener.

It held all the tropes of a slasher flick, where instead of the girl in the shower, there's an onslaught of turnovers, and instead of the character you like getting killed in dramatic fashion, the team's best player gets injured and knocked out of the game.

To say nothing went right for the Bills is a bit misleading, because it was even worse than that. It's hard to pick out the winners and losers when the whole team played like a bunch of losers.

Of course, it's only one game and the Bills will have the chance to turn things around, but the areas of concern this game has revealed are big enough that Erie County might want to think of collecting some property tax.

The Bills committed four turnovers, allowed a punt return touchdown, let an inexperienced Jets receiver core get behind them all game, barely touched Mark Sanchez and allowed almost 50 points. Truly a game the Bills will want to forget. 

The Bills have now lost nine of their last 10 games and six in a row to the Jets. So here's a cheery breakdown of exactly how bad things were for the Bills.
