Orchard Park, NY (Sports Network) - While the Buffalo Bills may have had a
disappointing season, they finished on a high note with a 28-9 triumph over
the New York Jets, who can finally put an end to an embarrassing campaign.
Ryan Fitzpatrick passed for 225 yards on 12-of-26 efficiency for Buffalo
(6-10), which got late rushing scores from Brad Smith and Tashard Choice in
snapping a three-game losing skid.
C.J. Spiller made two catches for 72 yards -- including a 66-yard TD reception
-- and added 59 yards on 24 carries, while Steve Johnson eclipsed the 1,000-
yard receiving plateau on the season with six catches for 111 yards.
New York (6-10) scored 10 points or less for the seventh time this year in its
third straight defeat. Mark Sanchez capped a season plagued by inconsistent
quarterback play by throwing an interception, losing a fumble and completing
less than half of his passes (17-of-35) for the eighth time in 2012.
Shonn Greene rushed for 74 yards on 19 carries and Bilal Powell added 56 yards
on 12 touches for New York, which will head into the offseason early for the
second consecutive year following back-to-back AFC Championship appearances in
2009 and 2010.
