Bills concerns mount after getting off to 0-2 start

Bills concerns mount after getting off to 0-2 start

"Well, first off, obviously never expected this", Ryan said, opening his news conference following a 37-31 loss to the New York Jets on Thursday night.

The Bills announced on Friday that Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman has been relieved of his duties.

The Bills named Assistant head coach/running backs coach Anthony Lynn as the team's new play caller on offense.

And the loss to the Jets comes a week after the Bills' offense managed just 160 yards in a 13-7 loss at Baltimore.

The Bills surrendered 493 yards offense, 28 first downs, allowed NY to convert eight of 13 third-down chances and forced just two punts - the second with 10 seconds left.

The Jets responded to score 17 consecutive points, capped by Matt Forte's third touchdown on a 12-yard run.

I don't think the Ravens offense will be as bad as it showed in week 1 against the Bills as the season goes along. The defense found paydirt less than three minutes later on a fumble recovery and touchdown from Nickell Robey-Coleman early in the third quarter to give Buffalo a 24-20 lead. He had two catches for 20 yards. Goodwin burst past Revis up the right sideline at midfield and had two steps on him when he caught Tyrod Taylor's pass in stride at the Jets 35 and ran it in.

The Bills haven't made the playoffs since 1999 and it's now an uphill battle as they not only fall to 0-2, but 0-2 in the AFC and 0-1 in the division.

"I don't know if I'm worthy or lucky enough for all this", Smith told reporters before the game.

Jets receiver Brandon Marshall proved to be a quick healer.

It was Buffalo's longest touchdown pass at home in team history, and longest since Fitzpatrick hit Terrell Owens for a 98-yard touchdown strike at Tennessee on November 15, 2009.

Jets quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 24 of 34 passes for 374 yards and a touchdown against his former team.
