The Buffalo Bills scored a big win on Monday night as they trounced the New York Jets 38-3 in what turned out to be quite a bounceback performance for the team after a tumultuous week that sent the game to Detroit rather than Orchard Park. The crazy weather and travel schedule Buffalo had to endure last week did not slow the team down, as the club looked motivated and hungry right from the kickoff.

As usual, the Bills defense graded out the best as it beat up on the Jets all game long, while the offense received some pleasantly higher grades than in recent weeks, turning in a productive and balanced performance of its own.

It didn’t matter that the Buffalo Bills had to play in Detroit instead of at home, or that the game was moved to Monday, or that they didn’t get to practice all week.

On Monday night, just as they were when the two teams played four weeks ago, the Bills were the far superior team over the New York Jets, as they won 38-3 to move back above .500 (6-5) for the year.

When the Bills played the Jets at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey in Week 8, Buffalo’s defense ended up convincing New York to bench quarterback Geno Smith for Michael Vick after Smith threw three first-quarter interceptions. On Monday in Detroit, it went the other way around.

The Buffalo Bills took one on the chin on Sunday, losing 17-13 to the Kansas City Chiefs, moving them down to 10th place and currently out of playoff position in the AFC with a record of 5-4. Ralph Wilson Stadium was buzzing throughout the day, but the home team fumbled away its first-half lead with two costly second-half turnovers.

Once again the Bills defensive unit had a great showing and did more than its part to give the team an opportunity to win, but the offense was a major letdown, especially in the red zone. There were flashes of great play on both sides but overall, defense dominated the day.

The second half of the Buffalo Bills’ season begins Sunday as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs, at 1 p.m. at Buffalo’s Ralph Wilson Stadium and to be televised on CBS, in a battle of two 5-3 teams jockeying for position in the battle for a wild card spot in the AFC.

There was some suspense leading up to the release of the Bills’ inactive list Sunday morning as two of the team’s key offensive plays, wide receiver Sammy Watkins and running back Fred Jackson, were both listed as questionable with groin injuries.

The Buffalo Bills are right in the thick of the AFC playoff race, currently sitting in a four-way tie for sixth place with a record of 5-3. The defense has really carried the team while the offense has been opportunistic enough to contribute to the winning record.

Overall through eight games, many defensive players have graded out very well while the offensive players have been more boom or bust in terms of individual performances.
