Found September 25, 2013 on One Jet At A Time:
It was the battle of rookies on Sunday at Metlife. Second round QB selection Geno Smith squared off againt first round QB selection EJ Manuel, in the first of what could be many division matchups. There were some ups and downs from both offenses, but only one team came out with a victory. The wall that was the defensive front 7 for the Jets proved to be huge factor, once again. Many analysts had Geno Smith as the first QB selected in the draft, but because of character issues, that isn't what happened. And so it was EJ taken, 16th overall, with Geno being left out for the second round. Both QB's have pretty identical talent, so either one would have sufficed for the Jets or Bills. Geno may have said that the game against the QB that 1upd him in the draft meant nothing, but that certainly isn't the way he played.

My recap: Bills lose to the Jets, 27-20

This always happens with the Jets. I swear. Maybe it is my hatred towards their fan base and just having to live in enemy territory that makes me want to really beat down Gang Green.

So, when...
