Anthony Dixon Contributes in Many Ways During 38-3 Blowout Win Against the New York Jets

During the offseason, the Buffalo Bills made several trades and signed a few free agents. The goal was to compliment a roster brimming with potential at several key positions.

The signing of running back Anthony "Boobie" Dixon to a three-year, $3.5 million contract on March 15, 2014 was seen as a depth move. The Bills already had Fred Jackson and C.J. Spiller at running back. A trade with the Philadelphia Eagles brought over Bryce Brown, so Dixon was an afterthought amongst most Bills fans heading into the 2014 season.

Dixon made an emphatic statement during the Bills 38-3 drubbing of the New York Jets on Monday night. Dixon carried the ball 12 times for 54 yards and one touchdown. The touchdown came in the fourth quarter with the Bills up 31-7. On second-and-six at the Jets 30-yard line, Dixon rushed up the middle and outran the Jets defense to score another Bills touchdown. Dixon was ecstatic about his performance, but also appreciative of the Bills fans and their continued support.

"That was definitely for them," Dixon said. "It's been a struggle all week. I know they're back home struggling, and we're about to go back home and fight with them."

The Buffalo Bills made a statement against the New York Jets when they took their division rivals down 38-3 Monday night. One of the biggest plays of the game was running back Boobie Dixon's blocked punt that was recovered in the end zone for a touchdown.

When Bills head coach Doug Marrone was asked about Dixon's contributions to the team Monday night, Marrone was quite critical of the running back.

Buffalo Bills Quarterback Kyle Orton Talks Robert Woods, Snowstorm

After the Buffalo Bills dismantled the New York Jets 38-3 from Ford Field in Detroit on Monday night, quarterback Kyle Orton had to answer an unusual array of questions from reporters, including ones about the previous week at home with the snow storms.

Orton was asked what it was like to take part in the previous week, with canceled practices, travel bans, game rescheduling and relocating.

“It’s hard to describe," Orton said. "The good thing about playing football is when you’re here, you’re preparing for a game and you’re with your teammates, there’s probably no other place you’d rather be. So for us we probably had the easy part, you know? Everybody back home probably had the tough part, so I’m excited to get here and get a big win for us. Hopefully this will propel us forward.”

Forward is where the Bills are looking now, as the team will host the Cleveland Browns back in Orchard Park for a bit of a homecoming game, and a bit of momentum as well.

The Bills kept their foot on the pedal Monday night and are hoping to carry momentum over to next week. Orton commented on what it was like to sustain the momentum throughout the game.

Robert Woods Emerging as Viable No. 2 Receiving Option for Buffalo Bills

The key to shutting down the Buffalo Bills' passing attack this season has been to shut down rookie wide receiver Sammy Watkins, but Robert Woods may have put a wrinkle in that plan with his performance last night.

Woods caught nine passes for 118 yards and a touchdown in last night's big win over the New York Jets. It was his first 100-yard game of the season, and his nine catches were the most he's had all season.

The Jets had a plan in place to take Watkins out of the game. He was double-teamed on nearly every play, leaving Woods with single coverage. Woods made some very tough catches last night. His touchdown catch was a back-shoulder throw that, though was a good pass from Kyle Orton given the coverage, required concentration to make. Woods also made a one-handed helmet catch down the sidelines.

Buffalo Bills Week 12 Reaction: Big Blowout Win

The Buffalo Bills were stranded at home for much of last week. They did not practice, were running out of food and had to play a division rival in a neutral setting that was supposed to be a home game.

The Bills responded by scoring 38 points, thrashing the lowly New York Jets.

Robert Woods stepped up to give Kyle Orton viable option next to Sammy Watkins. Woods caught nine passes for 118 yards and a touchdown and many of his catches required intense concentration. The Jets did everything they could to take Watkins out of the game, and in that aspect, they succeeded, but Woods made them pay, dearly.

Orton was on target last night. He threw for 230 yards and two touchdowns without turning the ball over. The Bills offensive line held up, only allowing one sack, and Buffalo was able to run the ball. The Bills essentially corrected every issue they had in their previous two losses, but the question is whether they can sustain it or not.
