Sean McDermott won his first game as the head coach of the Buffalo Bills Sunday afternoon beating the New York Jets, 21-12.

The Bills had a total of 408 yards, nearly doubling the 214 yards New York had for the day.

Buffalo won the turnover battle 2-1, with two interceptions. The Bills’ defense also forced two Jet fumbles neither of which Buffalo recovered.

A key player for the Bills was a new face in defensive back Jordan Poyer. The former Cleveland Brown had one interception, three tackles and a sack in his debut with the Bills. Fellow defensive back Micah Hyde also had a big day with an interception and three tackles.

Buffalo’s run game was dominant as the Bills picked up 190 rushing yards. Bills quarterback Tyrod Taylor threw for 224 yards and two touchdowns, throwing only one interception.

The New York Jets struggled in every area of play. Quarterback Josh McCown threw for a measly 184 yards with two interceptions. Pressure from the Bills defensive front made it difficult for McCown to throw the ball down field.

The two teams will meet again at MetLife Stadium in Week 9 on Thursday Night Football.
