Jets Route Bills 48-28
The Jets (1-0) may have just quieted the haters after a 48-28 route of the Buffalo Bills (0-1) in their opening game on Sunday afternoon. The Jets offense that only scored one touchdown in all of preseason looked great and even explosive at times scoring early and often. The Jets defense, which really was never in question also, looked stellar

In the second quarter the Jets erupted for 20 points. Stephen Hill, the rookie wide receiver out of Georgia Tech caught a touchdown pass early in the quarter.
