The Bills defense kept giving up first downs in the first quarter, but despite the Jets holding a big advantage in yards gained and time of possession, the game was still scoreless at the end of the first quarter. Safety Jairus Byrd came up with a big interception in the end zone, and the Bills were bending but even though they were getting tired, they were keeping the Bills in the game.
Another turnover by Sanchez, this time a fumble, allowed the Bills to come in to the half trailing only 3-0. The Bills had a chance to come back, since the Jets allowed them to hang close to them. The Jets came out in the third quarter with a long kickoff return, and they added a field goal to make it 6-0.
The Jets came out in the second half with four consecutive scoring drives, and that in essence was the game. The Bills had one sack in the first quarter from Alex Carrington, but that was it. This game showed that the Bills' pass-rush isn't as good as they showed against the Washington Redskins, but are probably better than they showed today against the Jets.
