The Bills receive grades for their second loss of the season.
Quarterbacks: EJ Manuel truly looked like a rookie in the Bills' third game of the season, completing 45 percent of his passes for just 5.8 yards per completion. He held the ball too long and too many of his balls were uncatchable or thrown well short of the first down. The good news is he didn't turn the ball over. Grade: D
Running backs: Other than a 59-yard run by Fred Jackson, the running game was not a factor. The Bills abandoned the run in the second half despite being in a close game. C.J. Spiller couldn't do anything and fumbled twice before leaving with an injury. Grade: C-
Wide receivers: Stevie Johnson got open regularly and drew a number of penalties. Scott Chandler played like he did in 2012, catching five passes for 79 yards and a touchdown. Their stats could've been better if Manuel threw the ball with more accuracy. Grade: B+
Offensive line: Buffalo looked overmatched up front, surrendering eight sacks. They also couldn't get the running game going, which put Manuel in a tough spot in the second half. Grade: F
Defensive line: After playing well against Cam Newton, the line didn't sack Geno Smith once. They also were beat in the run game, allowing Bilal Powell to rush for 149 yards. Grade: F
Linebackers: Kiko Alonso continued to make plays and picked off a pass to give the Bills a field goal. Alonso, Manny Lawson and Arthur Moats made a lot of tackles, but only one was for a loss. They struggled to stop the run as well. Grade: C-
Secondary: This unit was in trouble with Leodis McKelvin sidelined with an injury. Justin Rogers was beat twice for deep touchdowns, though he probably should've had safety help both times. Jim Leonhard made a nice play to pick off a deep pass. Grade: F
Special teams: Dan Carpenter made all four of his field goals, but the longest was only 43 yards. Shawn Powell dropped three punts inside the 20 and averaged 51 yards per kick. The coverage units excelled, but the return units struggled. Grade: A-
Coaching: Penalties, with seven for 87 yards, were again a problem, but the Jets made that look like nothing. Buffalo's offense couldn't do anything without the Jets' penalties and the defense couldn't put pressure on Smith. Not the most impressive game plan from Doug Marrone's staff. Grade: D
