The Bills recently broke a two-game losing streak and defeated the Jets at home in their first game since firing offensive coordinator Ken Dorsey. This was due in part to quarterback Josh Allen throwing three touchdown passes, including an 81-yard pass to Khalil Shakir. James Cook also contributed 73 yards on 17 carries. Despite throwing an interception on a Hail Mary at the end of the first half, the offense managed to avoid turnovers and ended with 20-of-32 throws for 275 yards.
On the other hand, the Jets struggled during the game, with Zach Wilson throwing an interception and leading the team to five punts before head coach Robert Saleh pulled him from the game in the third quarter. Despite this, they were able to score their first touchdown since Week Eight. However, trade deadlines have passed and the open market does not offer any hope of a real upgrade for them.
The prospects are more hopeful for the Bills as they look forward to a tough game in Philadelphia in Week 12. However, they may experience player shortages in the secondary after Taylor Rapp, Taron Johnson, and Dane Jackson all left Sunday’s game with injuries. Rasul Douglas was also hurt late in the game, so they may need to shuffle some pieces around before facing off against Philadelphia.
