5. The NY Jets couldn't stop Stefon Diggs

Stefon Diggs is one of the best wide receivers in football, so it shouldn't come as a surprise that he had a big day on Sunday. But he didn't just have a big day, he had his best day of the year.

Diggs finished with eight catches for 162 yards and a touchdown as he completely torched the Jets' secondary. It wasn't just one player either.

Bryce Hall, Brandin Echols, and Javelin Guidry each took turns getting toasted by Diggs with the latter two proving to be the most notable culprits.

The Jets had no answer for Diggs and Josh Allen who had their way with a porous Jets defense. It was ugly from start to finish.

6. Corey Davis' struggles continued

A look at the final stat line will paint a very different picture as to how Corey Davis' day went on Sunday. Davis finished with five catches for 93 yards which ranks up there with his best performances of the season.

However, context is important here.

Davis caught just one pass in the first half and he proceeded to fumble it at the absolute worst time. The former Titans wide receiver hauled in a 28-yard pass from White over the middle late in the first half only to fumble the ball allowing Buffalo to recover.

Trailing 17-3, the Jets were driving and looking to cut the Bills' lead to one score going into the half. Instead, Davis' fumble was the beginning of the end for New York.

His garbage-time stats won't do much to take away from the fact that Davis has five drops and two fumbles in seven games this season. He had three drops and one fumble in 14 games a year ago.
