Inside The Bills

Turnovers have told tale vs. Jets

The Bills have not been as careful with the football as head coach Doug Marrone would prefer through the first two games this season. Their four giveaways are tied for second-most in the AFC, and all four of them have come on Buffalo’s own half of the field this season.┬áThat can’t happen against the Jets today.

In the last eight meetings the Bills have coughed up the football 20 times, 11 via interception and nine by fumble. Twelve of those 20 against the Jets have come in their last four away games. Games in which they’ve posted a 1-3 record. The only reason they won the first in that string of four away games? Mark Sanchez threw five interceptions.

Over that same span the Jets have been slightly better with 14 turnovers in the last eight meetings. Eleven by interception and three by fumble.
