Forte finished off the Bills with a 12-yard touchdown run that gave the Jets a 13-point lead with 4:02 remaining.
Roman’s firing comes less than 24 hours after the Bills fell to 0-2 with Thursday night’s 37-31 loss to the Jets.
Lynn followed Ryan from the Jets to the Bills after six seasons as a running backs coach in NY.
Buffalo came back out on offense and were out in just one series. The next it’s their defense. The former National Football League running back for the Broncos and 49ers interviewed for the Dolphins’ head-coaching vacancy and San Francisco’s offensive coordinator job this past offseason.
“I know the kind of coach Anthony is”, said Ryan.
The Jets were crisp and productive offensively and as the game went on their defense started to get into a rhythm and put the hammer to Bills backs and receivers, not to mention Tyrod Taylor who got crushed quite a few times on Thursday. “It looked like a mismatch today”. And probably never better than they were in Buffalo on Thursday night. In that game, yes, the Bills offense was a complete and total disaster.
The Bills are 0-2.
He shouldn’t have much trouble finding a new job in the NFL.
With the team afforded three extra days before their Week 3 game against Arizona, Ryan thought it beneficial to make this change now.
“Right now, our schedule looks daunting against anybody”. But at the same time, the Ravens offense better get its head out of its you know what. Eric Decker, Brandon Marshall and Quincy Enunwa combined for 18 receptions for 319 yards. The Bills wound up scoring just one more touchdown, to cut the lead to 37-31. “But I’m not the person to put my head down”. But I believe we will make improvements.
NY (1-1) bounced back from a last-minute loss in the opener at Cincinnati on Sunday.
Matt Forte had 3 touchdowns. In two games, offseason free-agent addition has combined for 52 carries for 196 yards and added seven catches for 68 yards. With the play clock winding down, the Bills called their first timeout with 7:11 left in the game. “As long as we keep winning, I don’t care if I have 1,000 touches”. It’s not Roman’s fault that Ryan has made the defense worse or that the Bills have one of the thinnest wideout groups in football. It appeared as if he sustained a serious injury when his left knee twisted beneath him while cornerback Stephon Gilmore brought him down by the facemask in the second quarter.
“I should have”, Bowles said of going for the conversion.
It is also a peculiar decision for the development of Tyrod Taylor, who signed a six-year contract extension with the team in August.
The Bills threw for 307 yards in the loss, and over half of that production came on two plays – an 84-yard touchdown grab from Marquise Goodwin in the first quarter and a 71-yard touchdown completion to former Jet Greg Salas in the third quarter. JP Losman was the last to do that in 2006.
Long plays were the plan coming in according to Taylor.
