By the Numbers

Bills dominated most of the game Sunday behind strong return units and the rushing game...

6---yards per carry Marshawn Lynch averaged on 21 attempts.

3---turnovers by J.P. Losman in the final two minutes of the game.

14---points the Bills scored in the second quarter to erase a 14-3 deficit. Losman ran for one score and passed for another to Steve Johnson.

56---yard punt return by Roscoe Parrish. He leads the NFL with 15.3 yards per punt return.

23---first downs Buffalo gained. It was the most the offense mounted in four weeks.

55---total yards by backup running back Fred Jackson. The slick back caught a team-high six passes for 24 yards, while also rushing for 31 yards and a fourth-quarter touchdown that could have been the game-winner.

17---completions by New York quarterback Brett Favre. It was Favre's third-lowest completion count on the season. His 56.7 com. percentage was also his third-worst output in '08.

142---kick return yards by Leodis McKelvin on five runbacks (28.4 average). The rookie continues to dazzle in the return game. He currently ranks second in the NFL with a 29.3 average.

2---sacks by Jets' free agent pickup Calvin Pace. The Bills' line was solid most of the game, though, holding the Jets' second-ranked sack unit to three sacks.

35:29---Buffalo's time of possession, compared to 24:31 for New York.

1---tackle by Kris Jenkins, who many consider the frontrunner for defensive player of the year. Earlier in the season, Jenkins lived in Buffalo's backfield. He had five tackles and 1.5 sacks in spearheading the Jets' rush defense. The Bills only mustered 30 yards on the ground that day. On Sunday, the Lynch-led group churned out 187 yards.
