Bills trump Jets as Ryan wins in return


The Buffalo Bills accounted for the New York Jets 22-17 in the NFL on Thursday as head coach Rex Ryan got the better of his former team.

After six seasons in New York, Ryan moved to the Bills in January after he was sacked by the Jets.

And Ryan's return to MetLife Stadium was a successful one thanks to Bacarri Rambo, whose interception with 24 seconds remaining sealed victory for the Buffalo franchise.

After trailing 3-0 at the end of the first quarter, the Bills led 12-3 at half-time thanks to Duke Williams, who returned 19 yards for a touchdown, and Dan Carpenter's 41-yard field goal.

The Bills (5-4) opened the second half with the game's first touchdown drive via running back Karlos Williams, who was on the end of Tyrod Taylor's pass.

Williams, who has scored in all six games in which he has played this season, finished with 24 yards on seven carries to go with his lone reception. Taylor was 17 of 27 through the air for 158 yards.

Another Carpenter field goal followed to give the Bills a 22-3 lead with 8:42 remaining in the third quarter. 

The Jets (5-4) finally got in the end zone when Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was 15 of 34 for 193 yards, connected with Brandon Marshall on a 14-yard touchdown toss.

Fitzpatrick then found Eric Decker with a 31-yard touchdown pass as the Jets closed in.

However, they were unable to make the most of their opportunities after Bills punter Colton Schmidt fumbled a snap.
