Plenty of blame to pass around in Jets’ season-opening loss

Plenty of blame to pass around in Jets’ season-opening loss”

Buffalo trailed 16-0 in the second half and entered the fourth quarter behind 16-3, but thanks to a lights-out defensive performance down the stretch and some big-time throws from Allen, the Bills came away with a pivotal Week 1 victory.

Sunday was a win for the Bills - but it wasn't easy by any means.

New England won easily 33-3 and their schedule doesn't get remotely hard until November when they face the Ravens, Eagles, Cowboys, Texans, and Chiefs, in consecutive weeks. I also like the Jets' skill position players better and if they come out of the gates strong despite this being Gase's first game with Gang Green, NY should get a win and a cover in Week 1. New York's rookie class contributed to the struggles, providing nearly nothing in their National Football League debuts.

The Jets are just 2-6 against the number in their last eight games when playing in the month of September and are 1-6 ATS in their last 10 games overall. Bills' quarterback Josh Allen had four first-half turnovers, which was the most by any quarterback since cast-off Nathan Peterman did that.

For the Jets, the biggest problem in the game was their offense. They were up 16-0 and should have been up more as kicker Kaare Vedvik missed a field and an extra point. However, the Jets new offense was mostly putrid. His longest completion on the day was 19 yards.

You can watch the replays, including in condensed and all-22 formats, with NFL Game Pass.

Le'Veon Bell looked anything but rusty in his first game in almost 20 months, catching a touchdown pass and a 2-point conversion.

Buffalo's defense picked up where it left off previous year, when it allowed the second-fewest yards in the NFL.

The same goes for the Jets.

Despite Gase's reputation as a creative mastermind, the Jets offense struggled to gain a rhythm with an offensive line lacking cohesion and unable to knock the Bills off the line of scrimmage.

"For me and for our whole team, it's about hitting the big plays when they're there", Darnold said. They looked improved on last season but we need to see Darnold take the next step to consider this team a Wild Card contender. That can't be a sustainable model for winning games moving forward.

The Patriots have finished one season undefeated but couldn't close the deal in the Super Bowl.

On Sept. 27, 2015, Mosley returned a recovered fumble 41 yards for a touchdown for the Baltimore Ravens in a 28-24 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
