2020 Long Island EFL Week#1 New York Jets vs. Buffalo Bills

Recommended Posts

LIEFL #25 Ranked New York Jets (60-80) vs. LIEFL #11 Ranked Buffalo Bills (76-74) after this win! 

What a game!  The last great showing for the Long Island Electric Football League New York Jets was in 2008 when they captured the 32-Team "Throwback Tournament" in New York City. They crumbled in our regular 7-game season to our surprise.

No Miracles in 08' New York style, but in true fashion Long Island Electric Football League's 2017 Super Bowl XIII MVP, OJ Simpson put on another show against these division rival Jets, who went (1-6) in 2019. The Jets played the Bills strong! After picking up 4 new Drafts in the 2020 Draft, the front line produced 107 yards on the ground for Bruce Harper, who's long run was 28 yards.  Klecko, Hill, and Gastineau performed to the Bills level.  They will not be walked on this season and this schedule will be a huge challenge for New York as they have to take on the NFC West, the toughest division in our league. This time around Jets All-Time leading rusher Bruce Harper(#42)(Photo #2) played a great game after turning duties over to Le'Veon Bell last year due to a lackluster performance by Harper.

Last season Buffalo beat the Jets 9-3, in a defensive battle in the season opener, and for the Bills they lost a heart-breaker in last year's AFC Championship Game to the LIEFL #1 Ranked Miami Dolphins (166-34), 31-21. The week before they lost to Miami,  Buffalo beat the 2018 defending AFC Champion Los Angeles Chargers 49-48, in a controversial game with 11 seconds left in an argument over clock rules. 

The Jets who went (1-6) last season put up a fierce battle against the Bills OJ Simpson and "The Electric Company" led by LIEFL All-Pro's Marcel Dureaus and Bruce Smith.  Defensive End Dee Hardison played large against New York's Winston Hill in the trenches as Simpson rushed for 78 yards on three carries and a gorgeous 50 yard touchdown run (Photo#1) around the notorious right tackle, Richie Incognito who continues to make big plays for the Bills. Simpson ended the day with 210 all-purpose yards with two touchdowns. After New York Don Maynard's 26 yard touchdown pass from Sam Darnold, Simpson and the Bills answered with a left-side sweep, returning the ball for a 100 kick return (Photo#3) touchdown, putting on the after-burners, leaving Jet defenders in the dust to take the lead for good 14-7!

Buffalo is at AFC Champion and division rival Miami next week for a rematch of the Conference Championship, and for the New York Jets, they face the high-scoring San Francisco 49ers and the LIEFL #1 Rusher, Ricky Watters and Co., who set the LIEFL rushing 7-game season record last season with 925 yards rushing, with 18 touchdowns!
