Bills-Jets final score: Buffalo logs another beatdown, 38-3

A very weird week for the Buffalo Bills ended on a positive note: they crushed the New York Jets at Ford Field in Detroit, 38-3.

The Buffalo Bills own the New York Jets right now.

Including Monday evening's 38-3 thrashing at Ford Field in Detroit, which just concluded, the Bills have won three straight games against the Jets by a combined score of 118-40. Those three games have not even been close, and this evening's game was the most thorough clobbering of the trio.

Kyle Orton completed 24-of-32 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns. Anthony Dixon blocked a punt that was recovered for a touchdown by Manny Lawson, then recorded a 30-yard rushing touchdown in the fourth quarter. Robert Woods caught nine passes for 118 yards and a touchdown. Mario Williams recorded two more sacks, both in the first half.

Michael Vick completed just 7-of-19 passes before his evening ended tackling Duke Williams following an interception. Buffalo's defense, as it has been for long stretches in 2014, was suffocating, particularly against the pass. Led by Williams, the Bills recorded seven more sacks tonight, padding their season total to a league-leading 46 on the season.

This wasn't even close, y'all. Buffalo needed a win after the trials of last week, and the Bills delivered in a big way tonight. They're now 6-5, and though the remain 11th in the AFC playoff race, they're still very much in the thick of things. Next week's home date with the 7-4 Cleveland Browns looms large.

Enjoy this win, Bills fans. We'll start covering it, and the upcoming big game at Ralph Wilson Stadium, bright and early tomorrow morning.
