Vic Caruccis Points After: Bills 21, Jets 12

Vic Caruccis Points After: Bills 21, Jets 12
vic-caruccis-points-after-bills-21-jets-12
Here's a breakdown of the Buffalo Bills' 21-12 victory against the New York Jets Sunday at New Era Field:

All alone in first place: With the New England Patriots having lost to the Kansas City Chiefs last Thursday night and the Miami Dolphins having their opener postponed due to Hurricane Irma, the Bills are all alone in first place in the AFC East.

Living down to expectations: This didn't figure to be all that scintillating a display of football, who are taking a little less of a future-based approach, the Bills, and it wasn't. The Jets looked every bit as awful as anticipated as they begin their tank. At times, played down to the Jets' level, missing on a pair of scoring opportunities.

 safeties Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde,But it was a win in Sean McDermott's coaching debut. And several other newcomers -- such as fullback Mike Tolbert,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/amari-cooper-jersey-cheap]Authentic Amari Cooper Jersey[/url], and wide receiver Jordan Matthews -- made solid contributions.

 he first ran right,Player of the game: LeSean McCoy. He had 159 yards from scrimmage,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/gareon-conley-jersey-cheap]Womens Gareon Conley Jersey[/url], 110 rushing and 49 on five receptions. McCoy was the most dynamic player. He had a long run of 27 yards and on a 21-yard reception early in the game, then cut all the way to his left. The drive ended with Tyrod Taylor having a pass for Charles Clay tipped and intercepted in the end zone.

000,The performance allowed McCoy to push his career yards from scrimmage past 12,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/obi-melifonwu-jersey-cheap]Womens Obi Melifonwu Jersey[/url], making him only the six active player to reach that mark.

Team record-tying effort: By scoring a rushing touchdown in their 13th consecutive game, the Bills tied a team record set in 1980 and extended the longest active streak in the NFL.

 from 46 yards,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/eddie-vanderdoes-jersey-cheap]Womens Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey[/url],Hauschka's inauspicious debut: On his first field-goal attempt as a Bill, Stephen Hauschka was wide left with 3:59 remaining in the second quarter.

 on the bright side ...: With his extra point after the Bills' first touchdown,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/david-sharpe-jersey-cheap]Womens David Sharpe Jersey[/url],Then, Hauschka extended to 95 his consecutive streak of games in which he recorded a point. That is the third-longest active streak in the NFL after Arizona's Phil Dawson (120) and Dallas' Dan Bailey (96).

Taylor sets rushing record: Taylor's 27 rushing yards in a little more than three quarters allowed him to become the Bills' all-time leader in rushing yards by a quarterback. Joe Ferguson previously held the mark with 1,174.

 moving ahead of J.P. Losman (6,Taylor also moved into eighth place on the Bills' all-time list for passing yards,238).

751 tickets were distributed for the game. Most of them were filled on a gorgeous,Counting the house: The Bills announced that 68, sun-splashed day with no clouds in sight.

 cornerback Leonard Johnson,Up next: Homecoming time for coach Sean McDermott and General Manager Brandon Beane when the Bills take to the road to face the Carolina Panthers. McDermott was the Panthers' defensive coordinator, quarterback/special-teamer Joe Webb, Beane their former assistant GM. Four Bills players also have Panther pasts: fullback Mike Tolbert, and receiver Kaelin Clay.

Maurice sees Scheifele as future captain of the Jets

Over the past two seasons Winnipeg Jets forward Mark Scheifele has developed into one of the best offensive players in the NHL.

 John Tavares,Since the start of the 2015-16 season his 61 goals and 143 total points place him 15th in the NHL, and Ryan Getzlaf. Along with Patrik Laine and Nikolaj Ehlers,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/amari-cooper-jersey-cheap]Womens Amari Cooper Jersey[/url], ahead of superstars like Alex Ovechkin, he is one of the young players that is giving Jets fans a little bit of hope that the team might one day be able to climb out of the depths of mediocrity.

 who just signed a new contract extension to remain with the team this past week,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/gareon-conley-jersey-cheap]Authentic Gareon Conley Jersey[/url],Coach Paul Maurice, sees more than just a great offensive player. He sees a future captain.

” said Maurice on Prime Time Sports this past week,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/obi-melifonwu-jersey-cheap]Authentic Obi Melifonwu Jersey[/url], in so many ways,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/eddie-vanderdoes-jersey-cheap]Authentic Eddie Vanderdoes Jersey[/url], the driver of that offense. Blake is a big part of it; Mark, via Sportsnet. “He is,[url=http://www.raiderscheapstore.com/david-sharpe-jersey-cheap]Authentic David Sharpe Jersey[/url],“Mark Scheifele is going to be the captain of this hockey team at some point in his career for sure, as a centreman, certainly drives it.”

Here is more from Maurice:

” Maurice said of Scheifele. “He does everything he possibly can to become a better hockey player and then does it with a smile on his face. There’s lots of those guys who grind through their life and kind of grumble about how hard they’ve got to work — Mark does all that,“If you get a chance to spend some time with this guy, this is the guy you want your kids to grow up to be — he is that good a person, and enjoys every minute of it.”

Blake Wheeler is currently serving as the Jets’ captain after taking over the rule during the 2016-17 season. He replaced Andrew Ladd who was captain for six years before being traded during the 2015-16 season. Wheeler is under contract for two more seasons and will then be eligible for unrestricted free agency following the 2018-19 season.

Even with Maurice and general manager Kevin Cheveldayoff getting new contract extensions this week the pressure is going to be on for the Jets to make some real noise this season in the Western Conference. They have a lot of talent throughout the roster and finally attempted to address their goaltending issues by adding veteran goalie Steve Mason in free agency. There is a lot of promise with this team when looking at the roster on paper. But there has to come a point where that promise turns into results. The Jets have qualified for the playoffs just one time since relocating to Winnipeg seven years ago.

The organization (even dating back to the Atlanta Thrashers days) is still looking for its first ever playoff win having been swept in the first round in its only two playoff appearances.
