Two New York Jets turnovers have turned into nine points for the Buffalo Bills, who hold a 12-3 lead at halftime on Thursday Night Football.
After spotting the Jets an early 3-0 lead, Corey Graham intercepted a Ryan Fitzpatrick pass, and on the next drive, Dan Carpenter kicked a 47-yard field goal to tie the game up. On the ensuing kickoff, Bacarri Rambo forced a Devin Smith fumble that Duke Williams scooped up and returned for the game's only touchdown thus far; Carpenter missed the extra point, and the Bills' lead was 9-3.
Buffalo's passing offense behind Tyrod Taylor has yet to find its footing as the Jets have sent blitz after blitz, but the running game - LeSean McCoy in particular (63 rushing yards on eight carries, plus a team-high 22 receiving yards) - has been the unit's one saving grace to date. They put together a 12-play, 57-yard drive just before halftime that ended in a 41-yard Carpenter kick for the 12-3 lead.
Can the Bills hold their lead for 30 more minutes and emerge from MetLife Stadium with a huge divisional road win? We'll find out before the night is out. This is your open thread for the second half. Go Bills!
