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.
