Get the latest updates from today’s Week 1 season opener between the New York Jets and Buffalo Bills.

Week 1 is finally here! For football fans all across the globe, today is considered a holiday as a full slate of NFL games will be taking place. For fans of the New York Jets, the start of another rollercoaster of a season awaits. Will the Jets really be that bad? Could they muster a few wins this year and play competitive football? Can any of their young players, especially quarterbacks, be a pleasant surprise in 2017?

Your guess is as good as mine but one thing that’s for certain is that there are 16 football games to be played by the Jets and they’ll play hard in every single one of them. There will be no quit in this young team that will do whatever it takes to find consistency and of course, find their identity as they work through early obstacles and rough times.

Head coach Todd Bowles will ensure that this time around, he holds players accountable and runs a tighter ship. With many unproductive and problematic players now gone, he can focus on putting his thumbprint on the roster to ensure players work hard and be professionals off the field.

Studs and duds from Bills 21, Jets 12, including Matt Forte https://t.co/dDpWmrJWNy

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

Bills beat Jets 21-12 in opener. Jets fall to 0-1. Next week, they visit the Raiders.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

And now the Bills pick up the first down with 3:30 to go, which will pretty much do it.

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) September 10, 2017

Jets are punting with four minutes left … And they need two scores to win … What?

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) September 10, 2017

Jets are down 21-12 with 4:15 left in the game, and Todd Bowles is punting from near midfield.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

Demario Davis has been all over the field. 14 tackles, half a sack. #Jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

First turnover of the season for the Jets — a McCown interception. #NYJvsBUF

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 10, 2017

Josh McCown under pressure and throws up a ball that is picked off, despite the best efforts of Robby Anderson to grab it.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

The #Bills have run 60 plays. Mo Wilkerson has 1 tackle. Leonard Williams has 3.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

The #Jets averaging 1.8 yards per carry on 13 attempts.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

That might do it. Bills get a 1-yard touchdown run and lead the Jets 21-12 with 12:47 left in this game.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

The #Jets have allowed 16 plays of 10-plus yards. Eight plays of at least 20.

#Jets defense has allowed 14 plays of 10-plus yards.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Kony Ealy just drilled Taylor. He’s having a tremendous game.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Two-point game at 14-12. #NYJvsBUF

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 10, 2017

#Bills 14, #Jets 12.

2 minutes left in the 3rd Q. #NYJvsBUF

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

McCown intercepted on the 2-point attempt. I’m pretty sure the #Jets ran that same play 3x near the goal line.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Touchdown McCown. #Jets score on a QB sneak. McCown gave ball to Brandon Shell to spike.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

#Jets going for it.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

What an effort from ArDarius Stewart to stretch that ball toward pylon. Excellent awareness about where he was. Then again, it won't count.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

The Jets have found something on offense. Spread 'em out and dink 'em with short passes. #NYJvsBUF

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 10, 2017

RED ZONE.@JoshMcCown12 to @TYE_45 for 21 yds to the 9. #NYJvsBUF

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

The Jets defense has been an unexpected mess today. Bills now up 14-6. … Does this Jets offense even have 15 points in it?

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) September 10, 2017

Bills 14, Jets 6 with 6:52 left in 3Q #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

#Bills made that look easy. Defense has been atrocious today, and they’re playing the Bills. Oakland may drop 50 next week.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Taylor to Holmes 1-yard TD Bills #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

Buster Skrine misses the tackle and Matthews gains 47 yards. Ouch. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

Another long play for the Bills — 47 yards. Their longest of the day.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

The #Jets have allowed 13 plays of 10-plus yards, and six of 20-plus. That a gain of 47.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Lachland Edwards with a bad punt #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

Jets have Forte and Powell in the game together #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

It’s almost like Bilal Powell should touch the ball more.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

30 more minutes. #NYJvsBUF pic.twitter.com/gXH88h2YGz

1-point deficit at the half. #NYJvsBUF pic.twitter.com/0Cv881cE9I

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

#Jets take a knee. They’ll get ball first in the second half. 7-6 the score. #Bills lead.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Jets have yielded 240 yards, but they've made some critical plays at key times. #NYJvsBUF

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 10, 2017

Demario Davis & Leonard Williams were in on that sack. #jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Morris Claiborne with a costly pass interference penalty, and now that Bills are approaching field goal range late in first half.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

52-yarder.

Catanzaro cuts the deficit to 1. 1:44 left in the half. #NYJvsBUF pic.twitter.com/i7iNq21KmP

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

#Jets will get the ball at the start of the 3rd too. Would be nice to come away with points here. #NYJvsBUF

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 10, 2017

Jermaine Kearse again. Quick chemistry with one Josh McCown.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Matt Forte on the field for the #Jets. Powell has checked in a couple times, but zero touches. Not even a target.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

#Jets played last year with no production from tight end. They may finish today without one.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

#Bills kick misses from 46. Nice stand by #Jets D. Offense has chance to take lead with TD drive.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

The #Bills have 234 yards of offense with 5:04 left in the first half.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

A 35-yard pass for Bills … their longest play of the day, and their 11th play of 10-plus yards. Immediately followed by a 20-yard gain.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

TE Eric Tomlinson taken to the locker room. #NYJvsBUF

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 10, 2017

Josh McCown is 10-of-11 for 69 yards. Completions include Jermaine Kearse's first 3 catches as a Jet, TE Eric Tomlinson's first 2 as a Jet.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) September 10, 2017

Catanzaro is true from 48 yds out.#Bills 7, #Jets 3.

6:34 left in the half. #NYJvsBUF pic.twitter.com/M4QZrHjLUG

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

Really nice pass and play from McCown to Kearse. Curious decision by #Bills not to bring pressure.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

McCown never saw blitzing cornerback. Came untouched for a sack. It’s now 3rd & 11.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Watch: Juston Burris Picks off Tyrod Taylor in the end zone https://t.co/rSrhQrBoi3

— Jets Wire (@TheJetsWire) September 10, 2017

Eric Tomlinson left wide open. McCown finds him for first down. Momentum building?

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Touchdown #Bills. Charles Clay roasted Marcus Maye for the score.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Darron Lee is out of the game. Replaced by Julian Stanford. #Jets

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Jets' defense is getting completely gashed. Also gassed, probably. Bills have 10 plays of 10-plus yards in three drives so far.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

Jets and Bills combined for six penalties and zero points in the first quarter. Sloppy game so far.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

Bills have eight first downs, through one quarter of play, compared to zero for the Jets.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

Bills out-gained the Jets 123 yards to 16 in the first quarter. Possession time was 10:45 to 4:15. Jets have zero first downs.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

LB Bruce Carter (ankle) is questionable to return. #NYJvsBUF

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

First quarter comes to an end. #Jets & #Bills tied 0.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

The #Jets have allowed seven plays of 10-plus yards in the first quarter.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Kony Ealy has been really active for the Jets early #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

Bruce Carter walks off the field with medical personnel. Got up slowly. #NYJvsBUF

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 10, 2017

Jets LB Bruce Carter was hurt on that punt coverage.

— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) September 10, 2017

And another three-and-out. McCown staying with short passes vs. Bills' zone. Need to take a deep shot to loosen them up. #NYJvsBUF

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 10, 2017

The #Jets go three & out again.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Jermaine Kearse gets his first catch as a Jet. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

#Jets WR Chad Hansen is in the game. First regular season offensive snaps of his career.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Darron Lee credited with a sack on that Taylor scramble #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

Rookie LB Dylan Donahue in the game. Looks like Bowles is using a lot of people on D. #NYJ

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 10, 2017

Game 1, INT 1 for @JdotBurris32. #NYJvsBUF pic.twitter.com/Gk3zcWFpod

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

Jets go 3-and-out after the turnover #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

#Jets tempo is up. Different from last year.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

#Jets starting WRs are Anderson & Kearse, as you’d expect.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Jets' offensive line starters are who you'd expect — Brandon Shell at right tackle, Wesley Johnson at center, Kelvin Beachum at left tackle.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

Juston Burris ruled down by contact after the interception, but Jets lose 15 yards, because of a personal foul on Darron Lee.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

First takeaway of the season.@JdotBurris32 picks off Taylor in the end zone. #NYJvsBUF pic.twitter.com/Ba7Bfl605H

— New York Jets (@nyjets) September 10, 2017

Juston Burris interception. Nice stand by #Jets defense.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Pennel called for a hold. #Jets give #Bills a first down & goal at the 2.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

The #Bills offense is making it look easy on #Jets defense. Inside D — LBs & DL — struggling mightily.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Bills are gashing the Jets' defense early on. Bills already have gains of 13, 16, and 21 yards.

— Darryl Slater (@DarrylSlater) September 10, 2017

Jets mixing in a lot of guys on defense. Pelon, Pennel have both been in up front. Brooks has been in at safety. #nyj

— Brian Costello (@BrianCoz) September 10, 2017

Mike Tolbert, whom the #Jets were interested in this offseason, just ran through a massive hole … and over Jamal Adams. #Bills driving.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Ealy with the PD, making his presence felt early. Have to get the hands up against Taylor.

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 10, 2017

Josh Martin is the other OLB. Lee & Davis the inside LBs. https://t.co/AXZMnJyEic

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Jamal Adams & Marcus Maye starting at S for Jets. First game since at least '66 Jets have 2 rookie safeties starting same game.

— Randy Lange (@rlangejets) September 10, 2017

#Jets open with a traditional 3-4 defense. Leonard and Mo outside. McLendon the nose.

— Connor Hughes (@Connor_J_Hughes) September 10, 2017

Jets win toss, defer. Bills open with the ball. #NYJvsBUF

— Eric Allen (@eallenjets) September 10, 2017

#Jets captains: McCown, McLendon, Davis and Forte.

— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) September 10, 2017

Surprised that Jeremy Kerley is inactive. Evidently, Todd Bowles felt too much instability with two new WRs. #Jets
