EAST RUTHERFORD, NJ - SEPTEMBER 09: Jeremy Kerley #11 of the New York Jets runs for a touchdown on a punt return in front of Brian Moorman #8 of the Buffalo Bills during their season opener at MetLife Stadium on September 9, 2012 in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

The Buffalo Bills are one half into their 2012 season purely in a technical sense, because their play on the field has been atrocious. They're currently trailing the New York Jets 27-7 at halftime in New Jersey.

Ryan Fitzpatrick threw an interception on each of the team's first two drives. Fred Jackson appeared to suffer a serious leg injury and is questionable to return. C.J. Spiller notched a 56-yard touchdown run, but also fumbled late in the first half to set up a Jets field goal. Mark Sanchez and the Jets have shredded Buffalo's new-look defense to the tune of 246 total yards and three lengthy scoring drives. Jeremy Kirley recorded a 68-yard touchdown on a punt return in the second quarter.

Buffalo gets the ball first in the second half. They are rattled, and they've got three scores to make up against a tough team on the road. We'll soon find out if the team has any mettle whatsoever, because they'll need a lot of it to make this even a competitive contest, let alone try to win.
