8. Hey diddle diddle, LeSean McCoy up the middle
Year in and year out, LeSean McCoy proves to be one of the best running backs in the NFL. He is still making defenders miss even at the age of 29. That was on display today against the Jets.
On 2nd & 20, McCoy took the dump off from Tyrod Taylor and went to work. With the entire Jets defense in front of him, McCoy avoided every single one of them, inching his way for the first down. His athleticism was on full display as the Bills won handily 21-12.
If anything can sum up the Jets expectations this season, this was it.
7. You just can’t cover Antonio Brown
We still aren’t sure how many defenders it truly takes to cover Antonio Brown. But by the looks of it, three isn’t even enough. With less than three minutes left to play in the game, Ben Roethlisberger found his favorite target in triple coverage. Brown did what he does best and beat all three Browns defenders for the incredible catch.
At this point, it’s not even surprising anymore. Brown has solidified himself as one of, if not the best wide receiver in the NFL. The trust between him and the quarterback is incredible. Roethlisberger just floats up the pass, knowing that Brown is going to come down with the catch. If it were any other receiver, that pass would have been dropped or intercepted. But a combination of skill and poor defending by the Browns made for one of the best NFL highlights this weekend.
