Bills vs. Jets, 2014 NFL Week 12: second half open thread

Two red zone trips have yielded two touchdowns for the Bills, the Jets are being the Jets, and Buffalo is up 14-3 at halftime in Detroit. Our second half open thread is open for business!

Andrew Weber-USA TODAY Sports

Let's be clear about two things: the Buffalo Bills lead the New York Jets, 14-3, at halftime because they've scored touchdowns in the red zone, and because the Jets are especially stinky at football this evening.

Kyle Orton found Robert Woods for a seven-yard touchdown pass on the Bills' opening possession of the game, then hit Scott Chandler for a 19-yard score with under a minute remaining in the half to account for Buffalo's scoring. Woods has been excellent this evening, making tough catches to keep the chains moving on several occasions, including a gorgeous, one-handed effort on the drive that ended with Chandler's score. Woods has six catches for 64 yards on the evening.

Defensively, Buffalo has been lights out, with the Jets' lone field goal on the evening set up by a lengthy Jeremy Kerley punt return. Michael Vick has been flustered by the Bills' pass rush - Mario Williams already has two sacks, and is keying the effort - and has completed only 6-of-15 passes for 42 yards to this point. It has been all Buffalo thus far, which has surely pleased a very pro-Bills crowd at Ford Field in Detroit.

This is your open thread for the second half. Buffalo will have the football to start the third quarter. Go Bills!
