Jets head coach Todd Bowles wants everyone on the team -- including the coaching staff -- to improve moving forward after a 21-12 loss to the Bills in Week 1.
The new-look Jets failed to score a touchdown and QB Josh McCown threw two interceptions. New York struggled on the ground, tallying just 38 yards rushing, and the Jets' offense only had 214 total yards in the game.
"Stat-wise, we didn't do very well," Bowles said on Thursday. "Individually, it was a guy here or there. It wasn't everybody at the same time, so you can talk up the performances individually - they weren't as bad. But, as a group, we didn't run it well and receivers and tight ends are involved in that as well.
The Jets' defensive line was unable to contain the Bills' running game, as LeSean McCoy totaled 110 yards. It doesn't get much easier this week, as the Jets will face Marshawn Lynch and the Raiders.
"Everybody needs to play better," Bowles said. It's not just the D-line or the linebackers. The secondary needs to play better. We all need to play better and we need to coach better."
