Toronto is used to shitty sports teams, so why not let another borrow our great city for one night? The Buffalo Bills did just that last night, hosting the New York Jets and falling 19-13 at the World’s Greatest Entertainment Centre.
This one had everything you’d expect from a Bills game, even coming off a shocking win over the Dolphins Sunday in which they tripled their season scoring output in the final five minutes of the game. Buffalo couldn’t move the ball — Ryan Fitzpatrick, starting despite Trent Edwards’ likeness plastered on the outside of the building, completed nine passes for 98 yards and the Bills managed a combined total of 194 offensively. Marshawn Lynch was a bright spot, gaining 60 on six carries and scoring Buffalo’s only touchdown, a 15-yarder in the second quarter.
The Jets, who improved to 6-6 with the win, lost rookie quarterback Mark Sanchise (I don’t believe in that nickname — I’m only saying it because I think it’s so stupid) to a sprained PCL in the third, but it wasn’t a big loss because you don’t really need a quarterback to beat the Bills. The Jets rushed for over 200 yards against Buffalo for the second time this season, with Thomas Jones picking up a game-high 109.
