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

The Jets got on the board in the first quarter when Mark Sanchez hooked up with Jeremy Kerley on a 12 yard touchdown pass.

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. Jeremy Kerley returned a punt 68 yards putting the Jets up 21-0. Nick Folk kicked two field goals in the quarter giving the Jets a 27-7 lead at the half.

In the third quarter Antonio Cromartie picked off Ryan Fitzpatrick and took it to the house giving the Jets a 34-7 lead. Stephen Hill caught anther touchdown pass from Sanchez later in the quarter putting the Jets up 41-7. Sanchez finished going 19/27 for 266 yards, 3 touchdowns and 1 interception.

The Bills scored their first touchdown on a 56 yard run from CJ Spiller in the second quarter. Spiller finished with 169 yards on 14 carries. In the fourth quarter Ryan Fitzpatrick threw a 5 yard touchdown pass to Scott Chandler and a 29 yard touchdown pass to Stevie Johnson. Fitzpatrick went 18/32 for 195 yards, 3 touchdowns and 3 interceptions.

Shonn Greene ran in a 1 yard touchdown late in the fourth quarter putting the Jets up 48-28. Greene finished with 94 yards on 24 carries.

Bills starting running back Fred Jackson went down with an injured right knee in the first quarter. Early reports are a strained LCL.

The Jets will play the Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh next Sunday at 4:25 pm right here on 104.5 The Team ESPN Radio.
