ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (WIVB) - Going into the season, this game looked like it could have major playoff implications. Instead, with little to play for other than pride, the Bills finished the season on a high note, beating the Jets 28-9.
New York came out of the gates trying to establish the ground game, running the ball nine straight times to open the game, but the Jets had to settle for field goals.
When the Jets did pass, it did not end very well for Mark Sanchez. Bryan Scott returned an interception for a touchdown in the first quarter, part of a 17-for-35 day for Sanchez.
The Jets would take a 9-7 before C.J. Spiller broke free on a screen pass for a 66 yard touchdown - the longest of his career - giving Buffalo the lead for good.
Brad Smith and Tashard Choice added fourth quarter touchdowns to seal the 28-9 victory. The Bills finish the season with a 6-10 record.
Wide receiver Stevie Johnson passed the 1,000 yard mark for the third season in a row to set a new team record. He finished the game with six catches for 111 yards.
Now the focus turns to any changes the Bills could make in the offseason. Head Coach Chan Gailey has been a frequent target for fans this year, as has quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Gailey is expected to address the media Monday, after the players clean out their lockers.
