The Jets capitalized on those turnovers with 24 points, plus that 7 from the kick return. To add insult to injury, or rather injury to insult, the Bills top playmaker on offense Fred Jackson was hurt in the second quarter and did not return.

Bills Mafia Gets Whacked

All of that off-season hype is now out the door, as the Bills get handled 48-28 at Metlife Stadium. Here’s my reaction from the game: Ryan Fitzpatrick, where are you?

What we learned about the Bills after Week 1

CJ Spiller showed his explosiveness and composure in the wake of Fred Jackson’s knee injury. This could be perhaps the best news to come from the Buffalo Bills blowout loss.
