There were a lot of highlights for this week’s Thursday Night Football meeting between the Buffalo Bills and New York Jets.
With 8 total touchdowns between both teams — one of those coming on defense by the Buffalo Bills — this game was definitely worth staying up for.
The Jets’ offense was nearly perfect, but gave up a few exciting plays to the Bills’ defense. On the other hand, the Bills’ offense had a few very quick, but successful drives that ended in long touchdowns. However, they also struggled on offense against a very stingy Jets’ defense.
The first highlight came right before the game started during an opening featuring Jim Kelly and Joe Namath.
Next, one of Tyrod Taylor‘s best throws this season came on a 84-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Goodwin, who straight up ran right by Jets’ cornerback Darrelle Revis with pure speed. Taylor does a perfect job of placing the ball right where it needs to be and it gives the Bills their first six points of the game.
Mike Gillislee also caught his first touchdown pass of the season on a crazy 17-yard reception from Tyrod Taylor. It was Taylor’s third touchdown of the game and came late in the final quarter.
I also think it’s important to note how many terrible mistakes the Jets made in their first drive of the game, although it ended in a field goal. Here’s a recap:
