Bills fall short in week two: Is all lost?

Kruszka's commentary

Andrew Kruszka, Staff Writer

After a tough week one loss against the Baltimore Ravens, the Buffalo Bills played under the lights in a prime time match up against the also 0-1 New York Jets.

The Bills went down 3-0 early in the game, but it didn’t take them long to answer, as on a 3rd and 12 quarterback Tyrod Taylor connected with wide receiver Marquise Goodwin for an 84-yard touchdown.

The Bills then struggled for the rest of the half as the Jets outscored them 17-3 to make the score 20-10 going into the half.

The Bills received the second half kick-off and put up a score instantly, as Taylor connected with wide receiver Greg Salas for a touchdown. They then forced a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown, making the score 24-20 Buffalo.

The lead felt good for Bills fans but it didn’t last long as the Jets scored a touchdown, taking a 27-24 lead going into the 4th quarter.

The Bills’ cornerbacks Stephon Gilmore and Ronald Darby couldn’t stop the passing game for New York as the Jets put up another 10 points in the fourth quarter, leaving the score 37-24 with three minutes left.

The Bills had used one of their timeouts again on a defensive mistake, so they only had two left. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor tried to make something out of nothing and drove down to score with a minute left, but that wasn’t enough as time expired.

The Bills came short again, losing 37-31. This was a brutal loss for the Bills as they fall to 0-2 and tied for last place in their division.

The only good thing I’ll take out of the first two weeks of the season is there are still 14 weeks left. But I do believe that we could be 0-4 very quickly with our next two opponents being against the Arizona Cardinals (1-1) and the division rival New England Patriots (2-0).

I also think that the Bills could turn it around, win the next two games and get back on track. They just have to stay disciplined.

Some turnovers would be nice from our defense, because in the first two games, they’ve committed one turnover!

Also, I think that they should balance the offense a little bit more and actually succeed on third downs.

Anyways, I know I might sound crazy, but my prediction for the Bills game in week three is a 23-15 win against the Arizona Cardinals. For this to happen, they’ll need some help in every aspect of the game. For example, how about we as fans at the game get a little loud and try to make it hard for Arizona?

Also, our offense needs to stay on the field and eat up clock to make sure we don’t put it in the hands of Arizona quarterback Carson Palmer.

Go Bills!!!
