The New York Jets rout the Buffalo Bills in their season opener

The New York Jets came out flying in their season opener. They were 0-4 in the preseason and had a lot of trouble scoring. Their first team couldn’t score a touchdown, well not it is the regular season and what a difference it makes. The Jets defeated the Bills by the score of 48-28. The game took place at Met Life Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. 
Mark Sanchez looked like a man on a mission as he played a fantastic game. Tim Tebow was pretty quiet, he had five plays for 11 yards and when he was out there they ran eight wildcats for 22 yards and he recovered an onsides kick. Sanchez threw for 266 yards and three touchdowns. There was no quarterback controversy this week.

Shonn Greene ran the ball 27 yards for 94 yards. He had one touchdown and it was an average of 3.5 yards per carry. Stephen Hill led the team in receiving yards with 89 on five catches. That is a 17.8 yard average and he had two touchdowns.

The defense was led by LaRon Landry who had six tackles and one assist and Darrelle Revis had an interception. Santonio Holmes and Jeremy Kerley each had four receptions. Holmes had 68 yards and Kerley had 45 yards.

The Jets are 1-0 and will play at Pittsburgh on Sunday September 16th, 2012. We will see how the wildcat is used going forward and if it truly has an impact or if it is just meant as a distraction to the other team. If the Jets keep winning and playing like they did against the Bills it won’t matter though, they sure looked good in week one but it is only one game.
