Jets disconnect on international dialing

TORONTO -- So far, the New York Jets have blown 11 points.

Braylon Edwards
Braylon Edwards was unable to haul in this pass from Mark Sanchez.
Through one period, the Jets and Buffalo Bills were tied at 3 in the Rogers Centre.

The Jets should have scored two passing touchdowns, but misfired comically.

New York's second possession began with four straight double-digit gains from four players: Brad Smith for 21 yards on a reverse; Mark Sanchez to Jerricho Cotchery for 12 more; Thomas Jones run for 13 yards; Tony Richardson run for 19 yards.

Then the Jets failed to finish it off. Sanchez overthrew a wide open Cotchery in the end zone. Jay Feely kicked a 38-yard field goal.

Late in the first period, a blown coverage left Braylon Edwards sprinting lonely along the right numbers for what should have been an 84-yard touchdown. Sanchez's pass would have hit him in stride at the Buffalo 35-yard line if Edwards didn't allow it to hit him in the facemask.

Doink. Incomplete.

And a punt three plays later.
