OVERALL GRADE: F
The Bills have the second-worst defense in the NFL and the Jets managed just three field goals against them. Just brutal. There was some early success in the running game, but once the Bills adjusted to stop that, the Jets couldn't take advantage with any deep passes.
THIRD QUARTER: D
The Bills seemed to have tightened up their run defense, which means the game will come down to Mark Sanchez making plays in the running game. He hooked up with Jeremy Kerley for his second 40-yard reception of the game, but even that led to nothing.
The Jets were lucky the Bills didn't capitalize on a Mark Sanchez fumble. Nick Mangold couldn't hold his block long enough on a long-developing play to cause the fumble.
No points on the board this quarter for the offense.
SECOND QUARTER: B
The offense has dominated the time of possession and if it wasn't for Mark Sanchez's erratic passes downfield, this unit might actually get an A. Instead, his inability to make plays has resulted in the Jets settling for field goals instead of punching it in for seven.
Jeremy Kerley busted loose for a 40-yard gainer on a 3rd-and-16 screen play and Bilal Powell has shown some explosiveness as well. Shonn Greene is also making one final case for himself as a hand-runner who could become a valuable free agent pick up for someone looking for a complimentary back.
A Clyde Gates drop and a general inability to do anything with their final drive of the half gave the Bills plenty of time to try to put some points on the board going into the half.
FIRST QUARTER: C
If the Jets are going to have to pass the ball, things are going to get ugly. Mark Sanchez still does not look comfortable, misfiring on a number of passes and throwing an easy pick-six.
On the ground though, things were a little different.
The Jets came out looking to pound the ball on the ground and did so effectively for the most part. The Jets ran the ball nine times on their first drive and dialed up just two passes on their way to a Nick Folk field goal.
