The Buffalo Bills got a much-needed bounce-back effort against the New York Jets as they try to regain their contending form.
After one of their worst performances in recent memory, the Buffalo Bills could not afford to lose against the New York Jets.
Not only did they take care of business with a 45-17 victory, they also ensured that they made improvements in the areas that were lacking in their loss against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The most important area was the team’s offense which was being questioned.
The most important development from this game was seeing Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs get back on track. Allen put up 366 yards on just 21 completions with two touchdowns and an interception with Diggs hauling in 162 yards and a score.
Gabriel Davis was also a bright spot with 105 yards on three catches and the team found some production on the ground as all three running backs had a touchdown despite getting limited touches. This led to the Bills establishing a new mark with 280 points through their first nine games.
Allen made sure to show teams that he isn’t afraid of going deep as he averaged 13.1 yards per attempt and had four throws of 30 or more. The team couldn’t have had a better game to get back on track on offense while also keeping the New England Patriots behind them in the race for the AFC East title.
Buffalo Bills defense continues to haunt opposing offenses after brutal outing
Sure beating up on a Jets offense that has struggled this season isn’t something to boast. Really, it would have been disappointing if they didn’t take advantage of going up against Mike White and a lacklustre Jets offense.
It was encouraging to see the team get four interceptions including Tre’Davious White getting his first of the season. There is no better way to ensure the opposition gets nothing going on offense than with four straight drives ending in a turnover.
The defense has been the model of consistency for this team all season long and getting turnovers has been crucial to their success as a unit. As BuffaloBills.com reports, the team has 24 takeaways through nine games which is the most since they had 29 in 1993.
What better way to ensure your offense is successful than by giving them a short field to work with. Hopefully, the offense can have that level of consistency as they take on the Indianapolis Colts and three tough tests against the New Orleans Saints, New England Patriots and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
