LeSean McCoy on the Jets: “They beat us down”

Bills running back LeSean McCoy says there wasn’t much question who the better team on the field was on Thursday night.

McCoy said after the Bills lost 34-21 to the Jets that playing against a swarming Jets defense made for a long night. McCoy gained just 25 yards on 12 carries and didn’t catch a pass.

“They played good,” McCoy said. “They beat us down. They were running to the ball fast, they were on their gaps [and] their routes to the ball. They communicated. Everything we did, they kind of stopped it. So give them a lot of credit. On a short week, they studied hard on film. The big plays we like to run, they took them out.”

McCoy said the Bills won’t get down about falling to 5-3 at the season’s halfway point. But he knows they missed a big opportunity to get a division win against a team the Bills thought they could have beaten.

  1. Todd Bowles should probably be Coach of the Year. The Jets have already won more games than most people thought they would, and with a depleted roster. Kudos to Bowles and the Jets. I’m no Jets fan, but I recognize a good job when I see one.

  2. If I had a football team, Josh McCown would be on it. He’s obviously not the best at his position, but he’s tough nut and plays the game the way it should be played.

  3. .
    The Bills next four are very difficult. We’ll know soon whether they’re pretenders or contenders.

    New Orleans

    @Kansas City

  4. A rude awakening for McDermott & Co. on TNF.
    Did the Bills choke or did the Jets abuse the Bills?
    …they were not simply “beat”. That was a fugly performance.

  5. Almost everyone had the Bills winning this game but people have to realize that Division Games are always tough and competitive, you can toss the records out, Jets have been playing very competitive ball all season long and some experts had them winning 1 or 2 games this year!

  6. And the Patriots are all alone at the top of football’s toughest division. Imagine if the Bills had beaten the Jets and the Fins had beaten a weak Ravens club.

    6-2
    6-2
    5-2

  7. I watched the game thinking Bills are never going to win with Tyrod Taylor. Every time I watch them it’s the same thing. He can’t run the offense the way it’s designed. He can’t get the first downs when he needs to. He can’t lead the team the way a good NFL QB needs to lead. Then I get up in the morning and glance at the box scores and he had a good game (on paper). I guess that’s why scouts watch a lot of film.

    And yet they still have a better record than the hapless Raiders

    Jets are a young, hungry well coached team that is fun to watch play. Exactly what everyone was expecting!

    This is even more predictable as a reaction than the Bills being a pretender after reading their press clippings.

    Like clockwork, here comes Thanksgiving and the big fade and the Jets annual Super Bowl on national tv, only to be blown out themselves the next week.

    lmao

    I agree. The Jets deserve their due. However, it will all come down on how they respond next week.

    I’ll bet anyone right now they get blown out.

  11. Both the Bills and the Jets look like they are set up for the future. The Bills have six picks in the first three rounds next year. Both teams seem like they have a good management team in place. But both teams need a better QB than they have. Think the Jets wish they drafted Watson?

  12. These are both good teams and far better than Miami. They both have holes that will probably keep them out of the playoffs/knock them out early but the idea that they both still stink and are just bumbling along is no longer accurate.

  13. This is an excellent example of a trap game…..the Bills will be regretting this loss come week 14…..

    This would be beautiful. It would ensure more delusion for the Jets in the immediate future.

    Leave it to Jets fans to think they matter.

    Last night was a perfect example of why Taylor is not an NFL level starting QB.

    So slow in his reads and waits too long for the open receiver and gets easily exposed by a team that collapse the pocket on him.

    The book is out on him. Expect more of the same in the coming weeks. Bills need a good QB if they ever want to rise above mediocrity and being at home every January.

    I read this twice and I still can’t stop laughing.

  17. LOL @ these patriots fans trashing the Jets and Bills, I sense some nervousness. The Jets will have a dangerous receiving core with Enunwa, ASJ, and Robby Anderson next season all they need is obviously a QB, OLB, RB and. a few pieces on the OL. The Bills also are in perfect place to draft their QB of the future and also have a great defense.

    Yes, really nervous watching two garbage teams on a short week play a Super Bowl on national tv that no one watched.

    You dopes don’t seem to get that there are tons of mediocre/bad teams in the league right now who are beating up every week on one another. It doesn’t mean the team doing the winning in any given week is truly good, however.

    Get it?

    Ratings are tumbling down because it’s a bad product.

    But, you keep up with your annual delusions. It’s what you people do.

  19. That game was enjoyable to watch. The Jets front 7 was fierce. The play calling was rock solid. McCown never let the pressure affect his ability to finish a play. Or if he was forced out of the pocket, he still kept looking downfield for an open man. As someone said before, he isn’t the flashiest QB in the league, but he’s not going down without a fight. I enjoyed his time in Chicago. He played well enough there to earn a stay on his career. Good for him!

  20. I see only one Pats fan piling on the Bills and Jets. I don’t think you can have a one man pile.

    Patriots have always respected divisional play. Even the Bills games, who the Pats have an incredible win/loss advantage against, are normally very close games. It is the other AFC cities that disrespect the AFC East, not the Patriots.

    Correct. Run-based QBs always fade in the second half of a season because their skill set is compromised and can’t sustain.

    See Mike Vick, Kaepernick, and whoever else the next trendy Read Option QB is.

    Has Leonard Williams made a play yet? Just checking…Oh wait! He has a .5 sack on the year!

    lol

  23. Well, that “soft” AFC East still has the highest win percentage of any division in either conference.

    Truth be told it is the strongest division almost every year.

    The Bills got creamed last night in a game that was not nearly as close as the score, and the Dolphins got decimated by the “weak Ravens” 40-0. I’m not sure I am understanding what you are trying to say.

    Joe, we bitch slapped you last week 34-14. How does it feel to be 60 years old and have no NFL team in Toronto? You have 8 IDs, want me to name them all? Nobody in Buffalo was talking Super Bowl, but you Raider fans were!! nhpats is right with his posts to you. You must live a miserable live, you post 24/7, 2am in the morning, 4am in the morning, you have like a an alarm clock for the Bills threats posts. You need to see a doctor man.
