5 takeaways from the Bills win over the Jets

WR Zay Jones - It seems unusual to be recommending a rookie receiver in his first ever game, but Jones, a second-round pick out of East Carolina, has been impressive in camp for the Bills. The Bills hold the series lead, 59-53. McDermott, who spent the past 18 years of his career coaching on the defensive side of the ball for a number of different National Football League teams, became the Bills' coach back in January.

For the past 3-4 years Buffalo has seemingly been on the cusp of finally ending their playoff drought, maybe a convincing week one win will allow this team to settle in and surprise a lot of people in 2017. The key will be making sure he has a clean pocket to do so.

VA officials advised veterans to visit the administration's Hurricane Irma page for updates as the storm's impact unfolds. The USS Kearsarge and the USS Oak Hill with 26th Marine Expeditionary Unit are expected to be in the region on Friday.

Due to receive a base salary of $6 million, Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy will reportedly have the opportunity to earn some more money this season. There has to be a cognizant approach of not over-working McCoy to the point that he's putting himself at risk for an injury. To get this stadium back to where it belongs, in terms of our home field advantage, and we look forward to getting out there this weekend in front of our fans. So, what's the right answer? The 38-year-old then converted a fourth down run from the 1-yard line for the Jets' first touchdown of the season, with two minutes left in the third.

The revamped New York Jets might be a more together team than last season, when their locker room was fractured by head cases, but the sad reality is this team has no chance in 2017 because its offense is bad. Hughes once again looks explosive off the edge in his efforts to rush the passer from a wide angle on the defensive line.

Hear Jake Fromm explain preparation that enabled successful debut
Knee injuries can be finicky, so it's certainly possible that Fromm is the guy when MSU goes to Georgia later this month. In 2014, Notre Dame defeated LSU in the Music City Bowl, but lost the National Championship to Alabama in 2012.

Sean McDermott: "The guys that are around me on a daily basis know what our goals are". For much of their lineup, it's a roster that's in crying need of more starting caliber players. Help them squeak out wins a rebuilding season. Dion Dawkins replaced Cordy Glenn at left tackle for the Bills. The unit lacks true deep speed and a dominant player.

Three of the Bills' top four receivers from a year ago are gone. The one bright side, though, is that at times, the Bills were nearly as ineffectual.

Stacy Lewis secures emotional victory in Portland
Hurricane Harvey has killed around 50 people and unleashed massive flooding that damaged up to 50,000 homes in Houston. She won her 12th official LPGA Tour title, her first since June 2014. "It's nice to see yourself do that again".

That mold does not include the Jets' starting quarterback, Josh McCown. The strength of the offense likely resides in the backfield, and although Matt Forte is the player that most identifies the Jets with, the biggest mismatch for the Bills to me is Bilal Powell. But both have legitimate threats in the backfield. We will find out on Sunday if they can put up a fight against the Tyrod-led offense.
