A couple more notes as I sit here next to Jerome Bettis in the press box. After watching Roscoe Parrish‘s blazing 56-yard return with 4:27 left in the second quarter, I asked Bettis if he’d ever run that fast in his life. He said, “Only when his mom was chasing him when he was 2.”
By the way, as J.P. Losman just threw that touchdown pass to put the Bills up three points, the boos have erupted big time in the Meadowlands.
- The Jets have already done better offensively against the Bills in the first quarter than they did in their two losses against Denver and San Francisco in a number of ways. After converting just 19 percent of their first downs in those two games, they were perfect in the first quarter (2-for-2). Brett Favre‘s touchdown pass to Jerricho Cotchery was Favre’s first passing touchdown in three games. And Laveranues Coles and Cotchery, with 64 yards combined in the first quarter, have topped their combined receiving yards in those two losses.
- The 8-yard touchdown run by Losman in the second quarter broke a nine-quarter touchdown drought by the Bills. They managed just three points in each of their losses to Miami and San Francisco.
