An AFC East Review: Week 15

New, comment

Each week we take a look around at the other AFC East games. Let's take a look to see what the Buffalo Bills, New England Patriots, and New York Jets did.

BUFFALO BILLS

The Buffalo Bills played in Toronto, Canada and took on the Seattle Seahawks. The Bills got demolished by the Seahawks, 50 - 17.

Ryan Fitzpatrick went 21/38, 217, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions. As I stated last week, I don't see Fitzpatrick as a franchise quarterback. I feel the Bills should be looking in round 1 for their future.

With Fred Jackson out for the year, C.J. Spiller would see all the work at running back. He rushed 17 times for 103 yards and 1 touchdown. The lone bright spot for the Bills.

Stevie Johnson led the team with 8 receptions for 115 yards and a touchdown. Scott Chandler had 5 receptions for 58 yards.

The Bills will travel to Miami next week, taking on our Miami Dolphins.

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

The New England Patriots played a thrilling game against the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night. The Patriots fell short of the comeback and ended up losing 41 - 34.

Tom Brady went 36/65, 443 yards, 1 touchdown, and 2 interceptions. That's a lot of pass attempts and what's even more shocking is the interceptions. That's something we haven't seen from Brady all season, but he's still one of the best.

Danny Woodhead received most of the carries with 12 attempts, for 65 yards, and 2 touchdowns. Steven Ridley ran 9 times for 23 yards. Being down 31 - 3 at one point, the Patriots abandoned the run game and relied on Brady's arm.

At wide receiver, Brandon Lloyd finally got into the action. He recorded 10 catches for 190 yards, but no touchdown. Aaron Hernandez also had 10 receptions for 92 yards and a touchdown. Wes Welker was quiet, he had 5 receptions for 56 yards.

The Patriots take on the Jacksonville Jaguars next at Jacksonville.

NEW YORK JETS

The New York Jets played the Tennessee Titans last night, and wow, what a game. The Jets lost 14 -10 an were eliminated from the playoffs.

Mark Sanchez went 13/28, 131 yards, 1 touchdown, and 4 interceptions. Believe it or not, this was his first game this year with 4 interceptions.

Shonn Greene had 13 attempts for 68 yards, while backup Joe McKnight had 4 attempts for 29 yards.

Braylon Edwards returned for the Jets this week and led the wide receivers in receptions with 3 for 47 yards. Jeff Cumberland led the tight ends with 4 for 53 yards and recorded a touchdown.

I think it's time for the Jets to clean house. If they don't, they're going to have to put up with another year of Sanchez.

The Jets take on the San Diego Chargers next week.
