The Kyle Williams-led Bills defense and gusting winds in Buffalo combined to be too much for the New York Jets and rookie quarterback Geno Smith. Williams had two sacks and forced a fumble, and Jairus Byrd had two interceptions as the Bills turned four turnovers by Smith into 17 points in a 37-14 win Sunday. Starting with EJ Manuel's 34-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Graham, Buffalo scored 17 points over a span of 2:50 to build a 20-0 lead with 65 seconds left in the first half.
