The Buffalo Bills came into today’s game having scored
touchdowns on four of their first five trips into the red zone this season.
That success evaporated in the second quarter. The Bills had
consecutive drives reach the Jets’ 19- and 5-yard lines, respectively, and
couldn’t finish off either drive with a touchdown, settling for Dan Carpenter
field goals of 37 and 23 yards.
On the first red-zone possession, Bills rookie quarterback
EJ Manuel overthrew rookie wideout Robert Woods on the right side of the end
zone on a third-down play.
On the next drive, Manuel couldn’t find an open receiver on
third and goal, electing to run, but gaining only a yard.
