Tyrod Taylor Will Play in Week 1 vs. Jets After Concussion

New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills Preview: Jets hope to lift off early

At least with the Bills, they have a decent quarterback, a stout defense that can stop a passing game effectively, and a head coach in Sean McDermott that has everything to prove in his first season. Look for an ugly Buffalo win.

With that, here are five takeaways from the Bills win over the Jets.

McDermott and offensive coordinator Rick Dennison are in their first year with the team as well.

While it may be for just one week, first place is first place.

There are newly acquired Bills players making their debuts with Buffalo that have experience elsewhere.

Bovada has set the New York Jets' total wins over/under at 4.5, and some even consider that generous, but Gang Green will have a fair opportunity to pick up its first in its first game.

The same can be said for Andre Holmes, Steven Hauschka, Micah Hyde, and Jordan Poyer, amongst others. Bills fans hope that McDermott will lead the team to the playoffs and end the longest active playoff drought in not only the National Football League, but in all of major professional sports in the United States.

Tight end Charles Clay caught a one-yard touchdown pass for the Bills in the second quarter; Chandler Catanzaro made 48- and 52-yard field goals for the Jets in the second quarter to account for their scoring.

However, according to multiple sources, "T-Mobile" is fully healthy and will indeed start.

After a plethora of injuries, Robby Anderson leads the way for the Jets wide receivers.

Also sitting for the Jets on Sunday are new additions Jeremy Kerley and Neal Sterling.

For the first time since the drought was a mere seven years old, Bee staffers will predict the victor of each Bills game.

The Jets defense has the potential to be decent. We'll see if they show up on Sunday.

McCoy is the main target for the Jets defense. The consistently stellar half back will obviously be the key to the Bills winning this game. The Jets attempted a two-point conversion, but McCown was picked off in the end zone. If not, and Buffalo looks like they won't make the playoffs, then there is no point to finishing in the middle of the pack like they've done for so many years. In that final game, young Jets QB Christian Hackenberg went 10-for-22 for 105 yards and a TD to Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who had two catches for 32 yards. McCown is now 1-17 in his last 18 starts. Heading into his third season, Leonard Williams has been outstanding and has all the makings to become a defensive star for the New York Jets. The Bills hold the series lead, 59-53.

Buffalo has been busy transforming its roster through trades - receiver Sammy Watkins and Ronald Darby were moved in separate deals on August 11 - to stockpile draft picks.
