Found November 02, 2011 on NBC New York:

Recent years have seen Brett Favre outduel J.P. Losman in a mistake-filled 2008 bit of nightmare fuel, Mark Sanchez throwing five picks as a rookie to cause a Jets loss in a game that saw them run for 318 yards and a pair of thoroughly unmemorable blowout wins by the Jets last year. In the entire history of the series (51 years, dating back to the AFL), the two teams have met with winning records this late in the season only nine other times.

Transcripts: Sanchez, Holmes, Keller & Scott 11/2

Forgot to post these up last night … New York Jets QB Mark Sanchez, 11.2 On the difference between Buffalo’s defense this year as opposed to last year… Well, they’re just playing a lot smarter and are just playing a lot better.

Jets WR concerned with wins, not stats

The final word on The Toronto series for 2011

I know the agreement is up next year, but this deal isn't going anywhere. I know some fans would love it to, but for the Bills to get almost double on their return for a home game, something will be worked out. Yes, it will probably be for a lower number than last time around, but I think this is the norm. Sure, it may change after Ralph Wilson dies, but as I've written before...

Jets to focus on Fred

There was some thought that with Buffalo’s spread attack, which is built on anticipation throws and timing that the Jets may take a similar approach in defending the Bills to their typical approach to the Patriots with their quick strike passing game. But all indications are the Jets defenders are going to have a different approach, one that keys primarily on one player and that...
