EJ Manuel and the Buffalo Bills silenced the critics for at least one week with arguably their most complete game by beating the New York Jets 34-17. It was a game of firsts for this team, as it was the first time they have scored over 30 points in a game this season, they held the opposition to under 20 points and got their first win in four weeks.
The Bills had the perfect game plan entering this contest, but more importantly, they executed it flawlessly. They got pressure on Geno Smith and forced him into four turnovers. This led to a short field for the offense, and Manuel was able to build a 20-point lead by halftime.
This type of game will generate positive energy for Buffalo as it heads into its bye week and prepares for the final five games of the season. These are the five biggest takeaways from today's game.
