The linebackers also deserve a great deal of credit for limiting the Jets’ run game as Tremaine Edmunds was tied for the team lead in tackles with five. He also had one tackle for a loss as well as a pass defended.

Meanwhile, Matt Milano finished the game with three total tackles, one tackle for a loss, and contributed to the Bills’ sack total with one sack.

Grade: A


It seems like the Buffalo Bills secondary the past few weeks have played really well and then build on the impressive performance the following week. This week against the New York Jets, the Bills held the second overall pick, Zach Wilson, to only 87 passing yards and allowed him to complete only seven of 20 pass attempts.

The only misstep was a 40-yard touchdown pass by Keelan Cole and if that long play doesn’t happen, this secondary could have had a historic day. Jordan Poyer led the way for this secondary with four total tackles and two sacks.
