1) ?Ground and pound ain't dead yet -- Don't despair at the notion that the Jets only gained 118 yards on 36 carries (a 3.3 YPC average) just yet. ?The Bills were selling out against the run much of the game and that left players like Stephen Hill in single coverage. ?Hill was able to get open in multiple ways, be it with his speed or physicality. ?Now starts the game of NFL cat-and-mouse. ?Teams will start to dial back the eight-in-the-box stuff and that will only help the Jets running game benefit from the softer defensive front they'll see.
