Bills Ground the Jets

Buffalo closes out another losing season with a win.

ORCHARD PARK —  

Closing the season with a mean-nothing win was of little consolation for Buffalo Bills safety Bryan Scott.
Far too late for the playoffs, Scott wasn’t sure if a 28-9 victory over the New York Jets on Sunday would make a difference in determining the status of beleaguered coach Chan Gailey or any other changes that might be coming.
“The chips are going to fall where they may. Obviously, I don’t know to what extent,” said Scott, who scored on a 20-yard interception return. “This is one game. It’s not any consolation as to what we wanted to get done this season.”
Gailey was short on answers about his future.
“Let’s talk about today,” Gailey said, declining to say whether he’s met with team owner Ralph Wilson, who was in Buffalo on Friday.
“Not a lot of jubilation,” he said, referring to the mood of his players. “They were happy, but not excited.”
Elsewhere around the NFL Sunday, it was Tennessee 38, Jacksonville 20;  Carolina 44, New Orleans 38; Cincinnati 23, Baltimore 17;  Pittsburgh 24, Cleveland 10; Indianapolis 28, Houston 16;  N.Y. Giants 42, Philadelphia 7; Chicago 26, Detroit 24; Tampa Bay 22, Atlanta 17; Denver 38, Kansas City 3; San Diego 24, Oakland 21; New England 28, Miami 0; San Francisco 27, Arizona 13; and Seattle 20, St. Louis 13.
In Minnesota, Vikings running back Adrien Peterson came to within nine yards of the all-time single-season NFL rushing record as the Vikings beat the Packers on a last-second field goal, 37-34.
The Dallas at Washington game to determine the NFC East division champion was a late start on Sunday.
Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez finished with yet another sloppy outing. Nor did he help the status of offensive coordinator Tony Sparano, who’s expected to be released after one season. And questions remained about whether coach Rex Ryan and general manager Mike Tannenbaum will be back.
The Jets (6-10) closed their second season with three straight losses, and capped their worst finish since going 4-12 in 2007. They’ve now gone 14-18 since playing in successive AFC title games.
