Johnson laments decision to celebrate -
"I was just having fun and part of having fun ended up being a penalty and a touchdown for the Jets,'' Johnson said. "It was a stupid decision by myself.''

Johnson's antics, drops starting to wear thin - Jerry Sullivan
"Johnson is only 25 years old. He has a lot of growing up to do, a lot to learn. Maybe he'll do it for another franchise. Remember, it's his decision whether he stays. I've learned not to expect the wise choice."

Mistakes wipe out a game effort by Bills - The Buffalo News
"The shame for the Bills was they did so many things right against a Jets team that had owned them the last three meetings. Gailey's game plan was inspired. Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick was sensational. They won the turnover battle. They held the ball for 36:11."

Bills drop one late to Jets -
"A 14-14 tie at the half had the Bills in the best position to get their first win in a month. After falling behind by a touchdown in the third quarter Buffalo scored 10 straight points to take a three-point lead with just over nine minutes remaining (24-21). But the Bills couldn’t hold on as a late touchdown drive by the Jets put them up four with a minute remaining."

Inside The Bills | McKelvin update
"They said it’s ribs," said head coach Chan Gailey right after the game. "He couldn’t go back so I don’t know the severity of it."

Inside The Bills | CB Williams hard on himself
"My only responsibility was to be on Santonio and I had him in the end zone and I turned my head to see Sanchez scrambling so I look at my guy again and he’s right next to me," Williams told "Then I look back and there’s a guy coming across and I didn’t see anybody on him so I figured I’d pick him up, and I completely forgot my man and that play is on me. I probably was one of the main factors for why we lost, but I can’t do anything about it now. I have to learn from it and move on."

Stevie: "I cost our team a win" - The Buffalo News
"Johnson dropped a potential TD pass at the Jets' 20-yard line with 35 seconds left in a 28-24 loss at MetLife Stadium. Late in the first half, he had been penalized for excessive celebration after a 5-yard touchdown catch. The Bills botched a squib kick from their 20 after the call, allowing the Jets to score a quick TD to tie the score at 14-14 just before halftime."

Bills WR Johnson mocks being shot - The Buffalo News
"I've seen worse, and I've heard worse," Burress said. "So, it doesn't bother me at all. The result I'm looking at is we won the football game ... and he turned around and dropped three wide-open balls to lose it for his team."

Dareus tries to get teammates out of doldrums with a speech - The Buffalo News
"Marcell Dareus sensed that doubt had crept into the Buffalo Bills locker room, and in-house skepticism can kill any team. So he took it upon himself to try and defuse some of the reservations. Teammates said the rookie defensive tackle gave a stirring motivational speech prior to Sunday's 28-24 loss to the New York Jets, a game in which the team's energy was vastly improved after consecutive blowout losses to the Jets, Dallas and Miami."

Spiller is not satisfied with his performance - The Buffalo News
"Asked to replace Fred Jackson, the NFL's leading rusher at the time of his season-ending injury, Spiller averaged just 2.9 yards a carry against a New York Jets' defense that has struggled against the run in recent weeks. In his second start at running back, Spiller rushed for 55 yards on 19 carries in the Bills 28-24 loss to the Jets."

HAMILTON: Stevie's Now A Joke Around The NFL - WGR 550
"I can’t stand Terrell Owens, but I have to say this, all the crap he did and said was backed up in full on the field. The same with Deion Sanders. In my opinion and I know I’m likely in a minority here, what Johnson did in the end zone was classless. It hurt his team, made the Jets mad and made him a joke in the National Football League. Players are laughing at him because he didn’t back it up."

Reaction: Jets 28 - Bills 24 - WGR 550
"Much to their credit, they had a chance to win a game over a team that dominated them just three weeks prior, and were handicapped by key injuries. But the tale of the tape will prove to highlight mental errors, penalties and an awful play-call on one of the most important plays of the game."

Musings: Stevie Johnson's antics cost the Buffalo Bills | Democrat and Chronicle
"On to other things, such as Mark Sanchez. I said it all Sunday on Twitter, so I'll say it here: He's awful. I am convinced I have never witnessed a worse four-touchdown performance by a QB than that one. He did not deserve to be the winning QB in that game. Which makes the Bills' loss even tougher to swallow because their horrible defense couldn't stop the Jets at the end."

Steve Johnson's celebration dumb - AFC East Blog - ESPN
"The young Bills, and particularly Johnson, showed their youth in this game. Johnson is due for a contract extension, but Buffalo must decide if the talented receiver is mature enough to be relied upon as a building block."
