Jets defense clueless on Bills' opening drive


Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills on their first possession made the New York Jets look clueless.

Jets defensive coordinator Bob Sutton better make some quick adjustments. The Bills exploited the Jets on two big plays to score a touchdown and take a 7-3 lead in Ralph Wilson Stadium.

On the Bills' first offensive play, Marshawn Lynch slipped out of the backfield unnoticed to catch a Trent Edwards dump-off. Lynch turned around to find not a soul within 20 yards of him, and he lumbered for a career-long 42-yard gain to the Jets' 15.

Two plays later, tight end Derek Fine slipped into the end zone and practically did jumping jacks until Edwards spotted him for the 9-yard touchdown, the first of his career in his second NFL game.
