Points after: Bills 38, Jets 3

DETROIT -- Quick highlights from the Buffalo Bills' annihilation of the New York Jets here at Ford Field ...

What it means: The Bills shook off the snow and a two-game losing streak to remain above .500 despite vacating their home. They've beaten the Jets three times in a row and swept their season series for the first time since 2007.

Player of the game: Bills receiver Robert Woods posted career-highs with nine catches for 118 yards and a touchdown. Late in the second quarter, Woods made a David Tyree-type catch by pinning the ball against the right side of his helmet for a 27-yard gain up the right sideline. It was the longest play on the Bills' second TD drive.

Big stat I: The Bills hung 85 points on the Jets this year. The previous record versus the Jets was a mere 71 points in 1989.

Big stat II: Bills defensive end Mario Williams posted multiple sacks in consecutive games for the first time since 2008. He raised his total to 12 sacks, two shy of his best season and one away from the league lead.

Backbreaker of the night: On a Jets punt from their own end zone with 7:57 left in the third quarter, Bills back Anthony Dixon bull-rushed safety Jaiquawn Jarrett into punter Ryan Quigley. The kick was blocked. Bills defensive end Manny Lawson recovered it for a touchdown and a 24-3 lead.

Factoid of the game: Fred Jackson surpassed Willie Parker for third place on the NFL's all-time rushing list among undrafted players. Jackson ran 10 times for 32 yards and a touchdown.

Attendance: The game drew a general-admission crowd of 56,044 fans. When the Metrodome roof collapsed in 2010, and the Minnesota Vikings moved their game against the New York Giants to Ford Field, attendance was 45,910.

Preliminary injury report: Bills tight end Chris Gragg hobbled off the field in the third quarter with a right knee injury and didn't return. Gragg took an awkward hit while trying to catch a low pass.

Bills inactives (healthy unless noted): Fullback Frank Summers, receiver Marquise Goodwin, tight end MarQueis Gray, tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, defensive end Jarius Wynn (knee), defensive end Bryan Johnson, linebacker Randell Johnson.

Jets inactives (healthy unless noted): Quarterback Matt Simms, running back Bilal Powell, receiver Walter Powell, guard Dakota Dozier, guard Wesley Johnson, linebacker Ikemefuna Enemkpali, cornerback Josh Thomas.

Coming up: The Bills, weather permitting, will return to Ralph Wilson Stadium on Sunday to play the Cleveland Browns.
