A dismal season all around for both of these teams, but the Buffalo Bills managed to come out on top and finish the season on a high note, routing the New York Jets 28-9.
The Jets, due to a concussed Greg McElroy, gave an opportunity to Mark Sanchez once again only for him to disappoint. He turned the ball over twice, with of course, in what has become his season trademark, threw a pick-six to linebacker Bryan Scott.
For Buffalo, the win didn’t excite many with the impending house cleaning that’s reported to take place with the coaching staff.
"Let's talk about today," head coach Chan Gailey said via ESPN, who declined to say whether he met with owner Ralph Wilson.
The Bills and Jets both head into the tomorrow with a lot of uncertainty for both staffs, but for now, the Bills can savor at least one last win for Gaily and crew.
Bills QB Ryan Fitzpatrick was 12 for 26, with 225 YDS and 1 TD in the win. C.J. Spiller ran for 59 yards and also scored the go-ahead touchdown late in the 2nd with a 66-yard catch and run. Brad Smith ran for a 4-yard TD, and Tashard Choice added 13-yard TD. The win snapped their 6-game losing streak to the Jets.

Brad Smith took his moment and reminded his former team how to play the wildcat offense.
While fans in Buffalo chanted “Tebow-Tebow” it’s safe to say the Bills ran the wildcat better this season than the Jets.
Brought in to play the wildcat, Tim Tebow was ineffective and was nothing like the former Jets star who now plays for the Bills.
There is no question that after two...
NO ONE'S SAFE
The Bills are 5-10 and set to miss the playoffs for a 13th straight season. As a result, significant changes could be in order for the entire team.

Chan Gailey has been fired by the Buffalo Bills after three losing seasons.
The announcement was made Monday, a day after the Bills closed out another disappointing season with a 28-9 win over the New York Jets.

The Buffalo Bills have fired head coach Chan Gailey, following a disappointing 2012 season. The Bills finished the year with a 6-10 record, and the expectations were much higher in Buffalo following last offseason’s spending spree, highlighted by the signing of Mario Williams.

Whether or not Chan Gailey would be fired has been a touch-and-go subject as of late. General manager Buddy Nix has been telling anybody that would listen that all the team needs is a new quarterback. Obviously the issues run deeper than that as Gailey is gone.

After 3 seasons and a combined 16-32 record, the Bills have decided to relieve Chan Gailey of his duties as head coach of the team as reported by the Buffalo News.

The hits keep on coming: Chan Gailey has been fired by the Buffalo Bills. Gailey, hired by the Bills before the 2010 season, hadn't been a head coach in the league since 1999 with the Cowboys and had a 16-32 record in three seasons with Buffalo. The Bills haven't made the playoffs since 1999, the longest streak in the league.
Gailey's hiring was criticized at the time...
The Buffalo Bills fired coach Chan Gailey on Monday, according to the Buffalo News. General manager Buddy Nix might also be let go. Gailey, 60, went 16-32 in three seasons, including 6-10 in 2012.

One day after firing head coach Chan Gailey, the Buffalo Bills have
decided to keep the general manager who hired him.
Their disappointing seasons having finally come to a close, no one was ready to discuss what changes might be in store for the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills.
''Let's talk about today, and let's talk about tomorrow or next week at a later date,'' Bills coach Chan Gailey said after a 28-9 season-ending win over the Jets on Sunday.
Gailey's on the hot...
A person familiar with the decision says Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson is relinquishing his title as team president to CEO Russ Brandon. The move gives Brandon operational control of the franchise.
The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the move had not yet been announced.
Several media outlets, including The Buffalo News, reported the decision earlier Tuesday.
As 2012 comes to an end, I look at the Buffalo Bills season as one that was lost. Their schedule was more challenging than expected, but the team still had the potential to win 9-10 games. Unfortunately poor coaching and quarterback play, as well as an inconsistent defense cost the Bills any chance they had of returning to the postseason.
