NFL Announces Bills' Game Won't Be Played in Buffalo

Scott Boehm/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Due to the extreme blizzard that's hit the Buffalo area, the NFL announced Thursday that the Sunday's Bills game against the New York Jets would be moved to another city.

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter reports the game will be played Monday night in Detroit at 7:00 p.m. Eastern.

The Buffalo area has been hammered with at least six feet of snow which has stopped the Bills from holding practice Wednesday and Thursday.

According to Bills' officials, every foot of snow that falls in and around the teams' stadium takes three days to remove. It is estimated that the stadium currently has four feet of snow in it -- and another two feet is expected to fall before it's all over.

Rex Ryan Fined for On-Field Cursing 

Nick Laham/Getty Images(FLORHAM PARK, N.J.) -- New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan was fined $100,000 Friday by the NFL after cameras caught him yelling profanity after their matchup with the Steelers.

Despite the hefty fine, Ryan made fun of the situation.

“Yeah, I think I was saying thank you,” Ryan joked early in the week. “Emotions run high in games, and sometimes I think it's best (that) what happens on the field stays on the field. That’s where it stems from. It’s a very emotional game. Obviously, I have to do a good job of controlling my emotions and things like that. Things happen and I am sorry if I offended anybody.”

According to ESPN's Chris Mortensen. the severity of the fine is based around this being Ryan's third such infraction.

In 2011, Ryan was fined $75,000 for cursing at a fan after the fan yelled, "Bill Belichick is a better coach than you."

In 2010 he was fined $50,000 for flipping the bird to a fan at an MMA event.

Idzik Shoulders Blame for Jets Season

Joe Robbins/Getty Images(FLORHAM PARK, N.J.) -- In a season that has left fans irate, Jets General Manager John Idzik addressed the media and accepted the blame for a New York team off to a 1-7 start.

In his mid-season press conference, Idzik took accountability for the disappointing start.

"It starts with me," Idzik stated. "My performance as General Manager, everything falls under me."

Idzik's hand picked quarterback Geno Smith has dramatically regressed in his second season.  In the worst start ever by a Jets quarterback, Smith completed two of eight passes for five yards and had three interceptions.

When asked who would start at quarterback this week against the Kansas City Chiefs, Idzik deflected the responsibility to head coach Rex Ryan, simply stating it was "an organizational decision... everyone has a card in that game" and that Ryan would answer that question.

In a later press conference Ryan announced that he would go ahead with Michael Vick.

In spite of the terrible performances, Idzik maintained support for Smith.

"He is still a New York Jet," Idzik said when asked if Smith would see the field again this season. "We are still trying to develop Geno Smith."

The Jets general manager remained adamant that this is a long-term plan.  It remains to be seen if anyone will be left when the season is over to execute it.

Jets Commit Six Turnovers, Turn To Vick

Nick Lahem/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- With a three-and-out and three interceptions to open the game the Geno Smith era in New York may soon be over.

As the clock ticked under five minutes to go in the first quarter the Jets handed the reigns to Mike Vick.  That would still not be enough as New York lost to the Bills 43-23 and committed six turnovers on the day.

"I made the move to go to Mike and I think we responded," Rex Ryan said. "There was a lot of good things we did with Mike in there."

With Vick under center New York pulled close as Nick Folk hit a 55-yard field goal to narrow the gap to 24-17.

Turnovers continued to haunt the Jets throughout the day. Vick committed three turnovers of his own that killed any momentum New York had built.

"We have to take care of the football better," Ryan stated.

Buffalo stormed away in the second half though as Kyle Orton tossed a pair of touchdowns to Scott Chandler and rookie wideout Sammy Watkins.  Orton finished the day completing 10 of 17 passes with four touchdowns - the first time in his career he had done so.

When asked who would start next week for the Jets when they travel to Kansas City, Ryan deferred only saying, "we'll look at that later."

Percy Harvin Practices for First Time with New York Jets

iStock/Thinkstock(FLORHAM PARK, N.J.) -- Percy Harvin practiced with the New York Jets for the first time on Monday. Gang Green acquired the Pro Bowl wide receiver this past Friday from the Seattle Seahawks for a conditional draft pick.

“Everything is good,” Harvin said. “They have pieces here. I’m loving Geno (Smith), I’m loving the defense, and I’m looking forward to playing alongside (Eric) Decker. It’s going to be a good time.”

In five games this season with the Seahawks, the 26-year-old had 22 receptions for 133 receiving yards and zero touchdowns. Last season, he helped Seattle win their first Vince Lombardi trophy with a 43-8 victory over the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLVIII.

Harvin was originally drafted by the Minnesota Vikings out of Florida with the 12th overall pick in the 2009 NFL draft.

Jets Acquire WR Percy Harvin in Trade with Seahawks

NFL via Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Despite a 1-6 start to the season, the New York Jets are doing everything they can to improve their roster and not give up on a difficult year so far.  New York traded for Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Percy Harvin on Friday.

Seattle will receive a conditional 2015 draft pick, ESPN NFL insider John Clayton reports.

Harvin was traded to the Seahawks last year after being drafted in the first round by the Minnesota Vikings in 2009.

Harvin has only played in 43 career games in his career due to injuries, but Seattle gave him a six-year, $67 million contract, with $25.5 million guaranteed.

The 26-year-old has 22 receptions for 133 yards this season and will be one of the main offensive weapons for second-year quarterback Geno Smith.

Harvin played in the Seahawks Super Bowl win over the Broncos at MetLife Stadium in February.

Jim Rogash/Getty Images(FOXBOROUGH, Mass.) -- In a game that ended closer than some had previously predicted, the New England Patriots look to be back on track after narrowly defeating the New York Jets 27-25 on Thursday Night Football.

With time expiring, Jets kicker Nick Folk lined up for a 58-yard field goal but it was blocked by defensive tackle Chris Jones.

"It's good to feel that ball hitting my hand and it's good to get the win," Jones said. "I just played it legally and did all that I could."

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was solid on Thursday night as he completed 20 of 37 passes for 261 yards, three touchdowns, and no interceptions.

Running back Shane Vereen was the leading rusher and receiver for the Patriots as he racked up 43 yards one the ground, had 71 receiving yards, and caught two touchdowns.

After a tough start to the season, the Patriots find themselves at 5-2 through seven weeks of the regular season and are in first place in the AFC East.

The Jets meanwhile fell to 1-6 on the season.
