In receiving, Logan Thomas led with 30 yards in four catches. With the offense now seemingly less equipped with other weapons than before, McCoy's going to have to carry even more of the team's fortunes.
In Week 1 we witnessed some of that increased presence in the passing game. But most of the games were either tiresome losses or uninspiring wins.
While Tolbert barreled into the end zone, McCoy was hunched over on the sideline with a wrist injury sustained on the previous play.
From the minute Sean McDermott arrived he has been about one thing over all else...the process.
At any rate, this game could easily go one of two ways. He completed 26 of 39 passes for 187 yards.
NY appears to be in the midst of a rebuild and after all of the moves Buffalo has made this offseason, for them to be as heavily favored as they are is telling of the Jets team that will step onto the field tomorrow.
Jets: WR Jermaine Kearse, acquired in a deal that sent DL Sheldon Richardson to Seattle 10 days ago, had seven catches for 59 yards. His arm was called upon plenty, a surprising development considering running backs Matt Forte and Bilal Powell are two of the bigger talents on the offense. Both the Bills and the Jets are in rebuild mode and looking at the 2017 season to get their young players experience. "Our run defense was outstanding".
"It's going to be a long year", former Jets quarterback Boomer Esiason, whose 1995 team finished with the second-worst record (3-13) in franchise history, told Newsday on August 30. They brought back Jeremy Kerley this week after he was cut by the 49ers.
The pass defense gave up too many plays through the air. It all comes back to repetition. "If we can't run the ball, we can't stop the run, we're going to have a problem".
It moves Buffalo to first in the AFC East for the time being after the New England Patriots fell on Thursday night and the Miami Dolphins game with the Tampa Bay Bucs postponed due to Hurricane Irma. Adolphus Washington subbed in for Dareus as well and Eddie Yarbrough was rotated in for Lawson.
A lot of this is what we expected out of this team.
A two-point conversion pass from McCown to WR Robby Anderson was incomplete. When Head Coach Todd Bowles announced McCown was the starting quarterback, mostly everyone's expectations were met. And starters Lorenzo Alexander and Kyle Williams pressured McCown again with 1:44 left in the game to force a second INT and seal the game.
"We ain't in no business of we'll wait 'til next year", McLendon said.
