Bills lose to Ravens in defensive battle

AFC East rival Jets up next

The Buffalo Bills had closed to within three points before halftime on a 1-yard score/run by LeSean McCoy bringing the game to 10-7.  That was the last time the Bills would score as both the Baltimore Ravens and Bills defense stiffened up in the second half.

The Ravens managed to score a fourth quarter field goal to make the score what would be the final, 13-7.

“It’s a pretty darn good defense over there,” Bills coach Rex Ryan bills-3said. “I’m probably one of the only coaches that’ll give credit to the opponent because they deserve it. That defense played extremely well. They’re well coached and they got after us.”

The Bills have little time nor inclination to dwell on this loss.  Playing in Baltimore is tough.  Playing on opening day in Baltimore is nearly impossible.  So let this game pass because Thursday is upon us and the New York Jets are a series team who are also  looking for positive energy after also beginning with an 0-1 record.

Tomorrow’s game is the 111th meeting between the two teams and the Bills have won six of their last seven meetings with them. Whoever wins this game will avoid the early AFC East cellar so be sure to get out and get your tickets and help support your Buffalo Bills tomorrow night!

Bills hope success over Dolphins helps fuel game with Jets

The huge 33-17 win over the Miami Dolphins last week was a huge boost for the franchise and the team as Rex Ryan makes his return to MetLife Stadium.

The Bills worked over the Dolphins last week on a day that saw the return of Sammy Watkins (8 catches 168 yards and a TD) and LeSean McCoy (16 attempts, 112 yards and a TD).

This week, the Bills will have to overcome an improved Jets defense led by Todd Bowles.

“They’ve added from a personnel standpoint to already a talented team,” Ryan said Tuesday. “But when you’ve added Darrelle Revis — you get Revis back, you get Cromartie back, you get that secondary back and add some new pieces there — that was a huge help. That’s really what was missing I think on defense,” Ryan said in reference to his last season with the Jets.

If you’re planning on making the trip to MetLife, plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to get yours today and support your Buffalo Bills!
