It perhaps wasn't a surprise that the Jets would have two costly special teams breakdowns in their biggest game of the year. Ryan Quigley's 21-yard shank from his own end zone set up the Bills' opening score as the Jets trailed from that point onwards.
This was compounded when Randy Bullock missed a 40-yard field goal with the Jets already trailing 13-0.
It's difficult to be too harsh on the team for individual mistakes by their punter and replacement kicker, because the main complaints against the special teams unit has been the personnel filling out each of the special teams units rather than the specialists themselves.
The Jets didn't do much to help themselves on any of the other units either though. On punt returns, Jeremy Kerley's longest return was just nine yards and that was negated by a Dexter McDougle holding penalty. Antonio Cromartie made it past the 20 on his only kickoff return, but that was somewhat lucky as was almost stopped short.
Quigley punted three more times into the wind, getting a lucky bounce on one. The other two were much better, although one was returned 15 yards after Marcus Williams got blocked out of the play. Williams also had a missed tackle in kick coverage.
Bullock did make two extra points and a field goal and also had two touchbacks on kickoffs. Otherwise, he had two returned - one to out near the 30, but the other one was stuffed at the 15 by a nice Rontez Miles hit. Should the Jets retain Nick Folk, who is due to earn just under $6 million over the next two seasons or should they pay someone less than that? While Bullock had some misses down the stretch, he also made two game-winning kicks and Folk has typically missed more kicks in the second half of the season too.
Lorenzo Mauldin was the only player in on multiple special teams tackles.
It's been a rough year on special teams for the Jets in 2015 and it's difficult to know to what extent the personnel are to blame as opposed to the coach. Bobby April might be fortunate to retain his job.
