New York Jets
On September 11, 1960, the Buffalo Bills travelled to the Polo Grounds in Manhattan to face the New York Titans.It was the inaugural week for the newly created AFL, the third game in league history, the first ever loss for the Bills, and the start of a decades long rivalry.Since that time, Buffalo and New York (the Jets since 1963) have met another 101 times, with Bills leading the all-time series 53-49.However, coming into the start of the 2012 season, the Bills had dropped the last five, with their last win coming in 2009 when Ryan Fitzpatrick was brought in to relieve an injured Trent Edwards to lead Buffalo to an overtime comeback 16-13.After a load of offseason hype in Western New York, including the signing of Mario Williams to the highest contract ever for a defensive player, Buffalo seemed poised to come out roaring in 2012, maybe even starting by ending their five-game skid to New York.Meanwhile, the Jets were coming off a preseason where they didn’t score a touchdown in th...
BEST OF MAXIM
Mario Williams was upset with the job the replacement officials did during the Bills blowout loss to the Jets. He had some harsh words for the crew.
Heading into a major Week 1 matchup between two teams fighting for respect, I wanted to chronicle the game day experience of watching Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Buffalo Bills visit Mark Sanchez and the New York Jets. What better way to ring in the new football year than with a running diary of the game Bills and Jets fans will undoubtedly point to as either a launching pad for a surprising...
It might be very easy for Buffalo Bills fans to forget the 2012 season opener against the New York Jets.
Buffalo lost 48 to 28 in a tough match at MetLife Stadium.
While Buffalo may have made the game look respectable on paper, they turned in an overall poor performance. Starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was picked off three times, and the defense had trouble stopping New...

According to quarterback Mark Sanchez, Santonio Holmes was being “dramatic” when he told the New York Post Sanchez was “rattled” by the Tim Tebow trade (Credit: AP Photo)
Earlier this week, New York Jets wide receiver Santonio Holmes said quarterback Mark Sanchez was “rattled” by the Tim Tebow trade. If you ask Sanchez, he disagrees.
“I think [Holmes] made it a little...
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis has been cleared to run and lift weights - but not for contact - after suffering a concussion in the team's season-opening victory over the Buffalo Bills.
Coach Rex Ryan says Revis won't practice Wednesday, but it's an encouraging sign that the All-Pro is resuming normal activities. Revis must be cleared by the team physician and...
New York Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis suffered a mild concussion in the Jets 48-28 win over the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, but he is expected to suit up next week against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
When asked on Monday whether or not Revis would play Sunday, Jets head coach Rex Ryan said that he would "lean on the doctors and the trainers"
Adam Schefter of ESPN reported...
Even with his team's dominating win on opening Sunday in the NFL, Jets signal-caller Mark Sanchez is keeping things in perspective.
Going into preseason, there were certain expectations for the New York Jets’ offense. The word “circus” was ever-present in the media. Were there circus-like elements? Sure, but a lot of it was media-hyped. Mostly, it was long stretches of boredom interrupted by brief moments of stupid mistakes. Infamously scoring just one touchdown throughout the entire [...]
Buffalo Bills receiver David Nelson is expected to miss the rest
of the season with a torn ligament in his right knee.
Dear Genny Cream Ale,
Thanks for making this game bearable.
Seriously though, what the hell? I didn’t buy into the hype. I didn’t expect them to wow us. I did expect – unrealistically, apparently – them to at least keep it respectable, though. Such is life for a Bills fan, and here, as in the real world, it goes on.
Make no mistake, 28-48 is a lot closer than...
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- So this is what the New York Jets were hiding throughout their winless preseason. No, not the Wildcat. Touchdowns.

Mark Sanchez...
