EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- The Buffalo Bills and New York Jets are tied, 14-14, at intermission.

Here are some notes at halftime:
  • Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick has struggled in recent weeks, but got off to a good start against New York. Fitzpatrick completed 6 of his first 8 passes in the first quarter for 74 yards and a touchdown. He led a 90-yard touchdown drive in the opening period for Buffalo's first score of the game. Overall he is 12-for-17 for 117 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis and Bills receiver Steve Johnson are having a nice battle in the first half. Johnson has made five catches for 44 yards and a touchdown against Revis, which is a good game for most receivers on Revis Island.
  • But Johnson's touchdown celebration was controversial and might catch the attention of the league office. He was dancing and appeared to pretend to shoot himself in the leg, mocking Jets receiver Plaxico Burress. Johnson was flagged 15 yards for excessive celebration. The move also wasn't in great taste, considering Burress spent time in jail for the incident.
  • Looking at other wild-card contenders, the Cincinnati Bengals are losing to the Cleveland Browns, 17-7, at halftime, and the Tennessee Titans are tied with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 10-10.
