Buffalo Bills News - October 13, 2003

Marker Vinny's passes pass by Montana [4:57 AM]
Toronto Sun reports: '"We talked about it for two weeks, we had to come out and win," Testaverde said. "The guys put their heart and soul into it. You wish you could put your finger on (what went wrong earlier in the season), but we don't really know."'

Marker After Week Off, Jets Say Bye to Skid and Greet Optimism [4:56 AM]
New York Times reports: 'The Jets did not change their scheme during the bye week, but they worked on technique and their execution was vastly improved. The front seven, which incorporated several new players, including Victor Hobson at linebacker, was exceptional. Players did not leave their gaps, which in past weeks allowed for gashing runs. The Bills' Travis Henry is a cutback runner who usually gives the Jets trouble, but his longest run Sunday was 9 yards.'

Marker Jets' Postgame Analysis Is Simple: Just Play Better [4:55 AM]
New York Times reports: 'Ellis said those seven sacks of Bledsoe resulted from good coverage by the Jets' secondary and from Bledsoe's stubbornness. "We know Bledsoe stays in the pocket," Ellis said. "He's very brave."'

Marker Don't Count Out the Jets Just Yet [4:54 AM]
New York Times reports: 'The sledding looks rough, of course, especially within the division. The Miami Dolphins are 4-1, the New England Patriots are 4-2 and the Bills are 3-3. But the Jets' next three opponents are hardly world beaters: the Houston Texans, the unpredictable Philadelphia Eagles and the really unpredictable Giants.'

Marker Jets finally talking, walking tall [4:53 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'Highlights? For a change, plenty.'

Marker Testaverde feels like winner again [4:52 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'It was Testaverde's first three-touchdown game since Oct. 23, 2000 (Miami), and he passed Joe Montana for seventh place on the NFL's all-time passing yardage list.'

Marker Herm makes the right call [4:51 AM]
New York Daily News reports: '"I think Herm's biggest message to us was, quit thinking about the team we want to be and be the team we want to be," Pennington said. "Put your words into actions."'

Marker Jets stuff run, doubts about defense [4:50 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'Having Buffalo stuck in obvious passing situations - and being ahead on the scoreboard - allowed the Jets pass rushers to tee off.'

Marker As expected, Abraham sits [4:49 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'Winfield and Clements, man-to-man specialists, are among the premier cornerback tandems in the league. They held the Jets wideouts, Santana Moss, Wayne Chrebet and Curtis Conway, to six catches for 67 yards. But the Bills left themselves vulnerable to other receivers. Enter TE Anthony Becht. After an early drop, Becht rebounded with three catches for 41 yards, including two TDs.'

Marker Jets' report card [4:48 AM]
New York Daily News reports: 'Coaching: A. Herman Edwards pushed all the right buttons, integrating several young players into the mix, deactivating John Abraham (and not having it backfire) and calling a players-only meeting on the eve of the game. Paul Hackett scaled down the offensive game plan, using only six different running plays. Ted Cottrell turned up the heat by playing more man-to-man and taking more chances on defense.'

Marker Confidence game [4:47 AM]
New York Post reports: 'The Jets' maligned defense, which entered the game ranked last in the NFL against the run, shut down the Buffalo running game (53 yards) and produced seven sacks, two fumbles and two interceptions - as well as stopping the Bills on fourth down three times.'

Marker Passing a milestone [4:46 AM]
New York Post reports: 'Testaverde and Becht (two TD catches) weren't the only stars. The passing game flourished because of the success of the Jets' running game that earned 118 yards on 33 carries. The Jets' defense, playing without John Abraham, also came up big with a season-high seven sacks.'

Marker Abraham's benching sparks 'D' [4:45 AM]
New York Post reports: 'The Jets were constantly in Buffalo's backfield, much to defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell's delight. "This is how I knew we were capable of playing," Cottrell said. "We got to see how good we could play. It's a relief for that to finally happen."'

Marker For a Day, Misery Flies Away [4:44 AM]
New York Newsday reports: '"Guys had a lot more fun out there today," defensive tackle Chester McGlockton said. "It was evident."'

Marker Vinny Finds His Groove [4:43 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'So what was the difference yesterday from the previous four games? Testaverde couldn't say. "You wish you could put your finger on it and correct it sooner," he said, "but we don't really know but we're glad things worked out for us."'

Marker Youth Serves Jets In Abraham’s Stead [4:42 AM]
New York Newsday reports: '"The center didn't know the quarterback had stepped away," Thomas recalled of the moment before center Trey Teague sent the snap 21 yards behind the line of scrimmage as Bledsoe motioned for a timeout. When the errant snap bounded past Bledsoe and out of the reach of running back Travis Henry, Thomas tore through a gap and recovered the ball at the Bills' 17-yard line. "I ran there and hopped on it," he said.'

Marker Moss Shines in New Role [4:41 AM]
New York Newsday reports: '"When our punt-return team knows he's going to catch the ball, [they] do a little extra for him to cut him loose," coach Herm Edwards said. "He can make people miss in space."'

Marker At long last: Begone, despair [4:40 AM]
New York Newsday reports: '"It's just one win," cornerback Ray Mickens stressed, "but today we played the way we see ourselves. We know we're not a bad team. We know it."'

Marker Jets Turn Red Zone to Green With Three TDs [4:39 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'On Becht's second touchdown, the 18-yarder, the Jets made a halftime adjustment on the play that was called. Basically, they turned the protection in the other direction - something the Bills might not have seen them do before. Becht got open against safety Lawyer Milloy with help from fullback Jerald Sowell, who ran an underneath clearout route.'

Marker Grading the Jets [4:38 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'One number says it all: 53. Incredibly, that's the number of rushing yards the Jets allowed after giving up an average of 174 in the first four games, which was last in the NFL.'

Marker Proper Spin on Jets' Rotation [4:37 AM]
New York Newsday reports: 'Who is a worse center than Buffalo's Trey Teague?'

Marker Earn first one in a big way [4:36 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'The Jets played one of their most spirited halves of the season in the first 30 minutes, holding Buffalo to just 112 net yards, and just 35 yards rushing. Buffalo was 2-of-9 on third-down conversions in the first two quarters.'

Marker Minus star, Jets show sack attack [4:35 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: '"We knew Bledsoe would stay in the pocket," Ellis said. "He's very brave, so he just stays in there -- he'll hold the ball, try to get the ball downfield. We were able to get some heat on him."'

Marker For Testaverde, it's about winning [4:34 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'The three TDs were the most Testaverde has had in a game since he threw five scoring passes in that memorable Monday night victory over the Miami Dolphins on Oct. 23, 2000. He was modest -- even sheepish -- about the three TDs.'

Marker Becht rebounds big-time [4:33 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'The Jets simplified their running game and it resulted in a season-high 118 yards. It should be noted that Buffalo entered the game allowing 120 yards rushing per game.'

Marker Jets rail [4:32 AM]
Newark Star Ledger reports: 'Dumbest play: The Bills were stuffed on a fourth-and-one from the Jets' 34-yard line trailing 3-0 in the first quarter. MLB Marvin Jones stopped the play for a minus-1. A field goal would've tied the score and given Buffalo some confidence. The kick would've been from 51 yards out but K Rian Lindell has the leg, had perfect conditions and the field-goal friendly FieldTurf.'

Marker Jets blow away Bills [4:30 AM]
Middletown Times Herald Record reports: 'But the biggest difference was that the Jets were a confident football team yesterday. Confident on defense – they made the Eric Moulds-less Bills look like the Jets offense from Weeks 1 through 4 – as well as offense.'

Marker Defense finally shows up for Jets [4:29 AM]
Middletown Times Herald Record reports: '"We played the way we're capable of playing today," Cottrell said. "That was it, in a nutshell."'

Marker At last, a victory [4:28 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: 'The Jets ran for a season-high 118 yards, and their 71 yards in the first half were more than they'd gained on the ground in any single game this season. It was due in part to the running game that a team that had scored just one touchdown in eight tries inside the red zone scored three touchdowns once it got inside the Bills 20.'

Marker Bills thrown for loss [4:27 AM]
White Plains Journal News reports: 'Whether it was the loss of Abraham, the desperation born from an 0-4 start or simply a case of fortuitous timing, the emergence of the Jets' defense couldn't have come at a better time.'
