What we learned from Sunday's Week 1 early games

Recommended Posts

Buffalo Bills 27, New York Jets 17


1) Josh Allen entered the season thought to be one of Buffalo's few weaknesses. The Bills QB proved Sunday that he's no weakness, but rather a weather vane. When the dual-threat signal-caller was humming on his many read-option rumbles and out-of-pocket passes, Buffalo was unstoppable. Allen led the Bills in rushing (57 yards), set career-highs in passing and became the first Buffalo QB to throw for over 300 yards in 45 months. But Allen's curious errors persist. He fumbled twice inside New York's 35-yard line in an runaway first half and overthrew a wide-open John Brown in the end zone by the size of another John Brown.

2) Adam Gase's slow starts are becoming sort of a hot trend in New York. The Jets opened with three straight three-and-outs, unable to jump-start Le'Veon Bell or keep the pass rush off Sam Darnold. What's new? Darnold hit on two big gains (a beautiful sideline ball to Bell and a catch-and-run TD to Jamison Crowder) for a combined 99 yards, but the Jets racked up 155 yards the rest of the way. Threatening to crash before they take off for the second straight season, Gang Green also saw Bell go off with a hamstring injury, something Gase, to his credit, might have seen coming.

3) Bell wasn't the only star, rising or falling, to fall victim to the injury bug Sunday. Both of the Bills' starting inside linebackers, the great Matt Milano (hamstring) and Tremaine Edmunds (shoulder), exited with ailments. The anchors of Buffalo's defense weren't alone in Week 1 to suffer injuries after a long offseason, but theirs, coming within minutes of each other, could prove more significant than others around the league.
