Jones catches first career TD, but departs with injury as Bills trail 10-7 at half
The Buffalo Bills have some ground to make up if they want to improve to 6-2 for the first time since 1993.
Buffalo trails 10-7 at half against the New York Jets.
The defense allowed Josh McCown to get comfortable, as he completed 9-13 passes for 78 yards, sacking him just once, but improving as the half continued. McCown started the scoring by running for a ten yard touchdown on the team's second drive of the game.
Tyrod Taylor has been sharp as well, finding rookie Zay Jones for the wide receiver's long-awaited, and first career touchdown in the second quarter to tie the game at seven. Taylor finished the half 11-14 for 115 yards.
But Jones' night may have been cut short. The rookie injured his right knee after getting tangled up on a route with Jets defensive back Buster Skrine. He had to be helped off the field, and coach Sean McDermott was unable to provide an update on his status at halftime.
The Bills were moving the football in the two minute drill, but Jordan Matthews fumbled stretching for a first down in field goal range. The Jets recovered, and kept the three point advantage heading into the half.
Buffalo's offensive line is getting bullied by the Jets front, allowing five sacks in the first half.
The Jets had 11 total sacks in the first eight games of the season coming into the game.
