Bills Come Up Short Against the Jets

A good try, but still a loss.  The Bills played a much better game against the Jets than the last time they met, but when the game was on the line in the final minute the Bills just didn’t have what it takes to win a ball game.

Receiver Stevie Johnson has a tendency to drop catches during games and he dropped a sure touchdown catch that would have given the Bills the win during the final drive.  He also drew a selfish celebration penalty late in the first half after scoring a touchdown.  It cost the Bills 15 yards on the kickoff, then kicker Dave Rayner flubbed the kickoff giving the Jets a short field for the tying touchdown just before the half.  Still Johnson led the Bills with 8 catches for 75 yards and a touchdown.

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 26 passes for 264 yards and three touchdowns, but was off target on a couple of throws during the final drive.  C-J Spiller replacing the injured Freddy Jackson at running back was pretty much a non factor.

The big story of the game was Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez who threw for a career high four touchdown passes after a week in which he was highly criticized in the New York media.

The Bills 28-24 loss is their fourth in a row.  During the month of November they’ve gone from a season record of 5 & 2 to 5 & 6.  Their play was encouraging, but good tries don’t equal victories.  It’s all about the wins and losses and this team has just too many injuries and flaws.

The Bills are back home next Sunday against Tennessee.
