Despite making a concerted effort to beef up their defensive line (at the expense of other needy positions), the Jets pass rush was unable to get much pressure on Ryan Fitzpatrick, failing to record a sack all afternoon.
However, while the sack numbers may not be there, it is worth noting that the Bills are not an easy team to sack. Because of their quick-strike offense in which Fitzpatrick gets rid of the ball very quickly, the Bills gave up fewer sacks in the regular season than any other team in the NFL last year, allowing 23.
Ultimately, the Jets' secondary was good enough to get the job done, creating turnovers and scoring touchdowns of their own in the rout. However, relying on fumbles and horrific decisions by the opposing quarterback is no way to field a consistently great defense.
Therefore, while there should not be too much cause for concern based on Sunday's performance, players like Muhammad Wilkerson and Quinton Coples are going to have to step up their game when they go against the Steelers (and their weak offensive line) next week.
If the Jets cannot get pressure against a banged-up Steelers line, then it would be time to worry about the pass rush.
