The Bills defeated the Jets 21 – 12 in yesterdays regular season opener. It was a solid performance in Sean McDermott’s debut as head coach. Tyrod Taylor had a good day, going 16 of 28 for 224 yards, 2 touchdowns, and an interception. He also rushed for 38 yards. Lesean McCoy again proved himself to be the heart of the offense, carrying 27 times for 159 yards. The defense played well and was effective in shutting down the run. THE BILLS EMERGED WITH A VICTORY IN A HARDER THAN EXPECTED CONTEST. IT IS A CONFIDENCE BUILDER FOR THE LARGELY REVAMPED SQUAD. ATTENTION TURNS TO PREPARATION FOR NEXT WEEKS MATCHUP AT CAROLINA. GRATEFUL FOR THE WIN, WE ARE ENERGIZED AS 1BUFFALO.
