Jets' Todd Bowles tries to explain punting blunder vs. Bills

Thursday night's decisive loss by the New England Patriots, coupled with the cancellation of the Miami Dolphins opener because of Hurricane Irma and the Bills victory resulted in something Buffalo hasn't experienced in quite some time. It was a stretch play to the right, but McCoy found a seam up behind the nose tackle and up the middle of the field.

Any time an offense can get its bread-and-butter plays going, it opens up all kinds of complementary options. And he did so against a Jets defense that definitely was game-planning against him with eight men in the box. He has a bevy of young players surrounding him, all looking to learn how to run the proper routes and protect the pass more effectively. Taylor was also strong passing into the end zone.

Four minutes remained in the fourth quarter. Then on its next two series, the O did better, with both ending in long Chandler Catanzaro field goals.

It wouldn't matter though as a desperate McCown was picked off twice down the stretch in an attempt to get the Jets back into it, allowing Buffalo to ice the game with relative ease. First-round pick Tre'Davious White had four tackles and two pass breakups in his first National Football League start at cornerback.

"Oh definitely", Bowles said following a season-opening 21-12 loss to the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. They failed miserably and it's probably the biggest reason they lost this game. The Bills had one, the Jets didn't.

The Jets' run game, meanwhile, was stuffed by LB Ramon Humber and the Buffalo front wall. A couple of big plays by LeSean McCoy and Mike Tolbert, and a key third-down conversion pass to Charles Clay had the Bills on the move. The Bills still have much to prove after beating the lowly Jets. His 1-yard scoring plunge in the fourth quarter on Sunday gave the Bills a rushing touchdown in 13 consecutive games dating back to last season, tying a team record set in 1980 and extending the longest active streak in the NFL. Jordan Matthews caught a attractive pass that was in between defenders to get the Bills in scoring position in the first half. Taylor, however, missed 10 days of practice in losing valuable time to develop chemistry with a retooled group of receivers now led by Jordan Matthews and rookie Zay Jones.

NY had an immediate answer as Josh McCown picked the Buffalo defense apart with short passes, and then he capped the 75-yard drive with a fourth-and-goal quarterback keeper from the 1.

The Bills went ahead 7-0 11:26 into the second quarter, and though the Jets kept it close until late in the third quarter, the Bills never relinquished the lead.

Tyrod Taylor almost turned a third-and-goal opportunity into points for the Jets.
