    but don't read too deeply into it,Jerry Sullivan: Bills win

    Sean McDermott had just won his opening game as an NFL head coach. The Bills had defeated the hapless Jets on Sunday, and he made sure to spread the credit around.,womens Paxton Lynch Jersey, 21-12. The process was off to a rousing beginning
    " McDermott said in his post-game presser. "That was a great team victory. Thank Terry and Kim (Pegula) for giving us the resources that they give us. It was an entire building win.",womens Adam Gotsis Jersey,"Praise God
    I don't think of New Era Field as a "building,womens Shane Ray Jersey, but the enthusiasm of the true Buffalo diehards doesn't appear to have diminished.,womens Ty Sambrailo Jersey," but the coach had a good point. McDermott made sure to praise the fans for bringing their typical energy and passion. Maybe season tickets are down this season
    They had plenty to cheer about in the opener, which elevated the Bills to sole possession of first place in the AFC East for at least a week. The defense,womens Jeff Heuerman Jersey, McDermott's specialty, played a strong game,Authentic A'Shawn Robinson Jersey, albeit against the worse offense in the NFL. They were resilient after some early stumbles.
    But as far as resources go, but that natural resource was shipped out the door when the Pegulas signed off on the trade that sent Sammy Watkins to the Rams last month.,womens Graham Glasgow Jersey, there's one important item that McDermott could use from ownership: A legitimate deep receiver. Not to rain on anyone's parade
    You can argue all you want about that deal. I was in favor. But what's beyond debate is that the Bills do not have a wideout who can terrorize defenses deep the way Watkins did in those rare times when he was at full strength and operating on the same frequency as Tyrod Taylor.
    That was evident on Sunday. Granted, the Bills didn't need to stretch the field with their wideouts. womens Taylor Decker Jersey,The Jets were that bad, and Taylor spend much of the afternoon playing catch with tight end Charles Clay (four catches, 53 yards) and star tailback LeSean McCoy (five grabs for 49 yards).
    who was a highly compensated invisible man for much of his first two seasons in Buffalo,Clay,Authentic Taylor Decker Jersey, was targeted nine times. Taylor threw toward McCoy six times. He targeted his two wideouts, only seven times, Jordan Matthews and rookie Zay Jones, and those two combined for three just catches.
    " McDermott said. "We spread the ball around.",Authentic Paxton Lynch Jersey,"It was good balance offensively
    McDermott said the Bills took advantage of what the defense gave them. He said stats don't necessarily reflect balance. Taylor agreed,Authentic Adam Gotsis Jersey, and there's some truth to that.,Authentic Shane Ray Jersey, and said the Bills felt they could exploit the Jets' inexperienced and inferior linebacking crew with throws to Clay and McCoy
    "Those outside targets will definitely come,Authentic Ty Sambrailo Jersey," said Taylor,Authentic Jeff Heuerman Jersey, who was 16 of 28 passing for 224 yards and two TDs. "It's a game of matchups. Each game is different, and we want to be able to take advantage of those matchups."
    They'd better,womens A'Shawn Robinson Jersey,because the Bills aren't going to beat the good teams if they can't get their wideouts more involved down the field. It wasn't all balance on Sunday. On several occasions,Authentic Graham Glasgow Jersey, Taylor had to scramble or dump off because Jones, Mathews and Andre Holmes were being blanketed one-on-one down the field.
    It was a nice win, while there are two Jets quarterbacks even worse than Josh McCown., but it was hard to draw any hard conclusions. The Bills were a nine-point favorite and won by nine. The Jets were supposed to be the worst team in the league and played like it. It's hard to believe Colin Kaepernick can't find a job in the league
    Actually, then teams with real weapons came along., it resembled a lot of Bills wins from the recent past. They ran for 190 yards and averaged 4.5 yards a carry. McCoy was sensational with 159 yards from scrimmage and nearly broke a couple of long ones. The defense dominated a weak opponent. They did that several times last year
    Remember the Rex Ryan model? Sunday was a reasonable facsimile. Run the ball, mistake-free game and run from trouble when he has to., play strong defense and special teams and ask Taylor to play a conservative
    They ran 60 percent of the time (42 of 70 plays). Taylor, didn't have to touch that threshold again., who is 1-10 in his career when he throws 30 or more times
