TORONTO — New York is starting to exert its will a little bit running the football and on the pass rush. Buffalo’s front seven is not very stout — in fact, they’re downright bad a fair amount of the time — and it’s already becoming an issue for Ryan Fitzpatrick. The offensive line is being overwhelmed by pressure, especially when Rex Ryan calls up a run blitz.
Fitzpatrick almost caught the Jets on a scramble on third-and-long, with New York sitting back in Cover-3, but wasn’t able to pick up the last four yards. Not much out of the Bills’ offense to this point, save for the deep pass to Lee Evans.
Mark Sanchez hasn’t been totally sharp, either, missing Jericho Cotchery wide open in the end zone. And Braylon Edwards lives up to his reputation as a bust with poor hands. He was wide open on a streak route and Sanchez threw a perfect pass for what would have been an 85-yard touchdown pass — Edwards doesn’t have a corner or safety in sight — and the ball hits him right in the face mask, in stride. And he drops it.
