New York Jets Open Season with Scoring Outburst Against Buffalo Bills
FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) - So much for those preseason scoring woes.
The New York Jets' offense went from laughable to unstoppable in a 48-28 rout of the Buffalo Bills on Sunday. It was an unexpected scoring splurge after the Jets' starters failed to score a touchdown in three preseason games.
Things were so good Sunday that the defense and special teams got in on it, too. The Jets didn't even need to use Tim Tebow much. After all, Mark Sanchez was in total control, and he'll need another big game next week at Pittsburgh. So will the offensive line, which didn't allow a sack.
In a total team effort, New York's offense scored 34 points, Antonio Cromartie returned an interception for a TD and Jeremy Kerley brought back a punt for a score.
