It’s hard to deny the New York Jets’ postseason potential now
The New York Jets made their loudest statement of the 2022-23 NFL season yet on Sunday afternoon, topping the AFC East-leading Buffalo Bills by a 20-17 final at MetLife Stadium. Michael Carter and James Robinson represented the post-Breece Hall era well with a touchdown each while Greg Zuerlein kicked two field goals, including the short game-winner in the penultimate minute.
Though the Jets got off to a dubious start, as Braden Mann fell on the opening kickoff and gave the Bills field position at their own 45. A 42-yard throw to Stefon Diggs on the first throw of the game, a double move on which he beat Sauce Gardner, gave the game an ominous feel. However, they kept Buffalo off the board in the early going with a Jordan Whitehead interception of Allen.

Though Allen was held in check through the air, with the exception of his passes to Stefon Diggs, he accounted for Buffalo’s scoring via two rushing scores, one of which was a 36-yard to daylight in the middle of the second quarter.

The Jets officially made their prescience felt with a 13-play, 75-yard drive to close out the opening half, with Michael Carter closing things out with a six-yard score, one that finished a drive that featured a fourth down conversion en route to the end zone. Buffalo got the ball back but Tyler Bass missed a deep field goal that kept the lead at 14-10.

With CBS’s aerial camera interrupting a promising Jets drive that ended with a Wilson fumble forced by Von Miller, the Jets immediately fought back with a Sauce Gardner interception that up a go-ahead score.

That score was a seven-yard hook-up between Zach Wilson and James Robinson, the latter earning his first tally in green.

Buffalo fought back with a field goal later on before the teams exchanged punts, though the Jets embarked on a victorious 13-play, 86-yard drive that ended with Zuerlein’s 28-yard triple. Though rushers accounted for all but 12 yards on the drive, the outlier turrned out to be major, with Wilson’s gain of a dozen to Denzel Mims forcing Buffalo to start using its timeouts early. The Jets’ defense then forced the Bills into a four-and-out to clinch the upset, highlighted by Bryce Huff‘s 19-yard strip-sack and Sauce Gardner’s pass breakup on 4th and 21.
The Jets will now embark upon their bye week before facing another divisional match in New England on Nov. 20.

This division were in is sick. First the crazy difficult schedule after having the 4th worst record last year now.
. With tiebreaker the Jets are in 2nd place but this is the division records.
Bills 6 2
Jets 6 3
Miami 6 3
Pats 5 4
also 2nd best record in conference which means 1at wildcard unless we over take the Bills.
I say lets Take #1. Go Jets !!!
Well, fellow fans…who expected this?? My top take aways.
#1 If the O-line plays like this all year, playoffs aren’t just a with. Great job. Only complaint is new huy #70 big O should have had the Von forced fumble. He fell right on it. Don’t know how, and they didn’t show it on replay how it got away. Otherwise couldn’t expect more and I’ll take this every game.
#2..Garrett Wilson is the real deal. next level for him is deeper routes.
#3. Sauce redeemed himself big time after getting burned on 1st drive with a great read on pick and no PI on final throw by Allen that happened for years.
#4..While nothing jumping off the page, Zach Wilson was in control, ran when needed threw darts and with one exception was much better on short throws.
Most impressive was an incompletion Mims could have made a diving catch on but the ball was put between 3 defenders where only Mims had a chance.
** Loving Mims WR blocking….could develop into a special blocker.
#5. D-all around but especially the corners and rushers.
The maddening 3rd to 1st downs still happened too much but disappears in crunch time
# Carter looking like last year and Robinson looks like he’s worth a 5th rounder.
#6 Zack Wilson can be this team’s 10 year QB-have to slowly give him more rope.
#7 THEY MADE ME SO Fn happy!
Great game, but did Elijah Moore have even one target today? I don’t get it. Would love to see something on whether he was open or not, or just never the first or second read.
I never even heard his name
Early in the game we pitched it out to Michael Carter and he got hit 4 yds behind the LOS. Moore was supposed to block that guy. I don’t think Lafleur appreciated that.
Jonathan, Mims has impressed as a very good WR blocker
